The Gospel in South African Schools

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Magdeline came to one of our evangelism trainings in South Africa and learned how to share the Gospel using her hand. She learned about God’s grace and the other Gospel points. After experiencing what it was like to share the Gospel, Magdeline’s heart caught fire for sharing the Good News with everyone that she came across. She was so passionate and committed that her friend Sophie told her, “Magdeline, I have a children’s discipleship program from the same ministry that I’d like to come and teach in your church.” After the training, she ran to Sophie and asked, “Can we take this and teach it in the schools? Because this is too good to end up in churches only.” And that’s how Sophie and Magdeline started sharing the Gospel and discipling children in South Africa. In Magdeline’s words, “I’m old, but I don’t feel old because I work with children.” She finds joy in seeing children’s lives transformed by Jesus. Learn how you can share your faith too by visiting
