This isn’t the primary time Bibles For The World has labored with the Luis Palau Affiliation. Their partnership kicked off in 2014 with a pageant in Burkina Faso. Since then, they’ve offered Scripture for a number of of their “various outreaches and festivals that they’ve been having, not only for large public events but coming alongside them as they work in the communities where they’re doing these festivals,” Pudaite says. “[That] includes outreaches to businesses and governments, civic leaders, women’s leaders of the community, as well as prison outreaches, schools, orphanages, things like that, and medical camps and clinics.”
For this occasion, they’re additionally partnering with Africa Enterprise, who already has established outreach efforts in Cape City, South Africa. The Luis Palau Affiliation is sending Andrew Palau, Luis Palau’s son, to talk on the occasions. Bibles For The World, in the meantime, needs to offer copies of the Gospel of John for each occasion intender.
That’s a tall order given Pudaite’s estimate that 30-50,000 folks will attend every of the three Cape City Occasions. Bibles For The World is aiming to offer between 100-150,000 copies of the Gospel of John, to not point out “New Testaments for the new believers and decision-makers at all of these events.”
It’s not nearly offering Scripture; Bibles For The World needs to ensure festival-goers can learn the Gospel message in their very own languages. “We’ll be providing scriptures in Xhosa, as well as Afrikaans and also in English,” Pudaite says.
The undertaking is just not going to be simple. “Especially due to the extent and scope of this event that we’re partnering with these two great organizations on, we really need prayer support, and we really could use some financial support for this,” Pudaite says.
“This is going to be pretty spread out with a lot of logistics involved, in addition to the Scriptures being provided in three different languages, and so this is one we really are asking for God’s people to come alongside and provide his word to the people of Cape Town, South Africa in this month of November.”
