Some of the kids we met as we walked around Atlantis

This Sunday we found ourselves in a small community known as Atlantis. Atlantis is a place that was created for the sole purpose of pushing anyone who wasn’t white out of the major city of Cape Town. The history was incredible. As we drove along the road we saw this shacks that were just built out of scrap metal and scrap wood. There were some port-a-potties which helped with the sanitation. The interesting thing was as we drove closer to the center of town, I began to notice that the housing was getting better and better. Better meaning, being built out of cinder blocks with the possibility of running water and flush toilets. The landscape changes even more when we say these larger homes with gates and nice landscaping. What a very interesting juxtaposition.

 

When spent a couple of days in this town door knocking inviting people to the church service I was going to preach.

The famous children
. We also invited anyone who would like to sign up for World Bible School which is a program were students work at their own pace in learning more about the Bible and their relationship with Jesus. Many people were weary of us, but they quickly warmed up when we let them know we weren’t selling anything or asking for any donations.

 

I had fun with quite a few of them telling them that Bionce was my ex-wife and that I was really Chris Brown. They got a laugh and we all enjoyed the fun. We had some great success in this area with over 160 people making a commitment to study the Bible and many of them showed up for church that Sunday.
