Chibini Baptist Church is one of CAST’s thriving rural partner churches. Since last year’s CAST holiday club in Chibini, Baba and Mama Khumalo have been overwhelmed by the growth of children coming to their Sunday School.
Several additions to their ministry have also increased the amount of children attending church. First, the Khumalos received a bakkie, with which they are now able to transport more children from surrounding communities.
Second, the Khumalos organised a soccer pitch right above the playground that was donated last year during holiday club. In addition, Baba Khumalo set up netball poles for the girls to play.
These new sports opportunities have brought more children into the church to hear the Word of God. Baba and Mama Khumalo have even started occasional “Sports Sundays”, where they share a short Bible message with the children, then invite them to play in a safe environment.
Please be in prayer for the Khumalos as they introduce more and more children to the love of Jesus. In a community where many parents are absent due to work opportunities elsewhere, the Khumalos play a vital role in the lives of so many children. Thanks be to God for providing for this CAST community!
