Thank You - Ninety Days After - From MVK

Mr. Charles Dempsey
First and foremost I thank God the father, the Son and the Holy spirit for giving us this season. Thank you Lord. I also wish to express my deepest heartfelt thanks to all our blog friends out there. You guys truly ‘rock’ Its is only three months since we went on the net and so much has happened it actually feels like a very long time.
I also wish to welcome the spring season, I’m sure that most ‘Johannesburgers’ will agree that this was the coldest winter in the past 10 years or so. The FIFA world cup event was another great experience for both soccer lovers and soccer ‘tolerants’ like myself. We almost had an overdose of the whole event. We thank God for       Mr. Sep Blatter Who had faith in South Africa from the onset and was never disappointed. Another Thank you to Julius 'juju' Malema for the best thing he ever said during the World cup event. Mr Malema said NOTHING at all and this was great.The World cup atmosphere is something I will forever cherish. It was truly an experience and my first time to wear a Soccer 'T' shirt. We hung country flags almost everywhere we went and some are still up. My house looked almost like FIFA house with all those flags proudly flying even at night, it was so wonderful to just go out at night and watch them sway from side to side. Some cars across the city still have flags and mirror covers of different countries on them. I also wish to thank God for enabling our country to host such an event even when Mr.Charles Dempsey thought that we were too primitive to do so. And hey world South Africa is NOT a third world country, we are just as competitive like most of you guys who came to visit us here.
During the world cup there were no incidents of Lions roaming the streets or Cheetahs chasing the tourists. no reports of people waking up only to find a black mamba in their shoe. Did you guys notice our Airports? And how about our Shopping Malls and roads. To top it all off South Africans have just proven to be the Worlds best hosts.

Family Matters Workshop - Held on the 22 August - At ROFC - Report - By. MVK

Marriage Reinforcement Workshop

Held at Reach Out For Christ
On 22 August 2010 at 15H00

Conducted by: Rev. MV Kotu
Workshop Coordinators: Pastor & Mrs Maluleke. 
I wish to thank Pastor Maluleke and the whole TFT team for organizing the occasion. The meeting was attended by 155 couples and 29 individuals. What really impressed me was observing that the majority of the attendees were young couples. This was an indication of the urgency for the need for such meetings amongst young couples. I also wish to thank all the elderly couples who graced the occasion; it gave me the much needed backup that made it easy for me to speak to the house with confidence. Another encouraging factor was seeing the couples arrive as early as 14:15 for the meeting scheduled for 15:00 as a result we were able to start the meeting at the set time. I was there at 13h00 to prepare my presentation equipment. This meeting was the first of the four planned for 2010 with three others scheduled for September, October and November. (Dates to be announced soon)
The objective of this workshop was to reveal and discuss with the couples the results of a survey I did with the couples at The Freeway Tabernacle 2 months ago. Then the house would then agree on the best approach towards solving the issues rising from the survey.
I used a power point presentation to conduct the workshop. (All slides are attached hereto). We discussed each issue then feedback and suggestions were taken into consideration since this was going to determine the direction and subject matter of our next workshop.
The meeting was adjourned at 17h00 and most of the attendees that I spoke to indicated their contentment about the whole event.

I believe in an Existent God - Part 3

Our faith in God or in anything else will always reach a testing point. This is when we know for sure whether what we have been ‘banking on’ pays off or not. When I came to knowing God in an official manner it was on the 9th of January 1983. I had been sick for a while up to that time. One winter evening in June 1982, I woke up at around 2 in the morning with my whole body burning as if a million hot needles were being pricked into every square millimetre from head to toe.

I believe in an Existent God - Part 2

Have you noticed that whether we believe in God or not is always influenced by what is happening to us and around us at any particular point in our lives? People hardly pray when everything is going well with them. On the other hand everybody becomes suddenly spiritual when there is a death in the family. I grew up in a Christian family where we were introduced to the knowledge of God from a very early age. My parents taught us to acknowledge and believe in a personal God whether things went well with us or not.

The Don'ts Of trials and Tribulations - MVK

* Don't lose focus of the purpose of trials - They were purposed to perfect us
* Don't wonder why no one is helping you - Life is like a game, play on and let others watch
* Don't run around knocking on doors - At such times most are locked, it's the  law of trials
* Don't wish you were someone else - Their time is coming too, trials are not avoidable
* Don't forget God's promises - They remain the same even at that time
* Don't get too much into reasoning mode - At such times your mind must be on God
* Don't lose sleep over those issues - Staying awake was never part of any prescription
* Don't grab anything that comes - Trials always make you focus on anything but your dream
* Don't remember those you helped before - They always strangely hibernate somehow during this season
* Don't cheat hoping to make up for anything - Your integrity plays a vital role during this time
* Don't call those who said you must never be a Christian - They will confirm it
* Don't forget to drop me an E-mail - I might just have a word for you.

MARRIAGE SEMINAR With MVK - 22 august 2010 - 15h00 - Be there!

MVK & Joyce Kotu
Do you feel like you could start all over again in marriage? It's sad that most people do not feel that good about their marriages anymore. for some it has become an unending nightmare and others still just wish they were dead. making the decision to 'tie the knot' as the saying goes has literally tied most people to abusive relationships and prolonged emotional torment. I extracted the following quotation from the DRUM magazine dated 5 August 2010: 'People say that there is no difference between the words: Complete and finished. I say there is; marry the right person and your'e complete. Marry the wrong person and your'e finished' Do you feel complete or finished in your relationship? 
I have been married to the same woman for 28 years and I have never felt so complete in my life. Marriage happens but living together is a skill that can be learnt though talking to others and attending marriage enrichment seminars and workshops. Being happily married and living happily ever after is not easily acquired as one man of God said it's 'blood sweat and tears' It never just happens we have to put a lot of hours learning the necessary skills and asking for the 'paths of old' from those who have been there before. I will be speaking to couples, both married and those engaged to be married. The meeting will take place on Sunday 22 August 2010. The meeting will be held at Reach Out For Christ Ministries in Chiawelo Ext. 3 Soweto.We will start at 3 in the afternoon. and admission is free. For further Enquiries please contact the ministry office at 011 980-5970 or Pastor. Billy Maluleke on 0837220815. alternatively you may leave a response below indicating your attendance. See you there. MVK     For Directions Click Here

Prosperity begins when our task is to live for God and nothing else. Conclusion - MVK

One thing that I have learnt in life is that both prosperity and poverty don’t just happen but rather they are a result of laws obeyed or broken. Many years ago when I was a new believer I heard a preacher say that “If you are poor don’t worry because that is exactly what you are capable of’ I was almost offended but instead as a young man who was steadfast on seeking God’s laws of prosperity I heard him very well and started towards working to a better life.

About Me
Years ago, I think the year was 1987, a church sort of happened around me. I was later to learn that this was called church planting! So I guess I planted a church by mistake. Here is how it happened:
I was working as a chief geochemist with a mining company, having done an Applied Maths and Chemistry degree. With my wife Khumo, we went about trying to figure out how to make a contribution in the country, which was then in the midst of political upheavals and a state of emergency. Both of us activists from our youth. (That’s how we actually met!).
With several friends who were rather subversive types, we decided we would discover how to be biblically faithful, while being politically involved in the diverse struggles of the mass democratic movement at the time. So we prayed, studied the bible, engaged in community struggles of diverse sorts. I realised my theological base was rather weak to sustain the challenge of holding together a community of committed Christians looking to make sense of their faith in a revolutionary context
