Please pray for the over 100 new otLIVE instructors being trained in Zambia and Zimbabwe

We hope that you are as excited as we are about these videos
            they sent us
– showing their preparation.


These instructors who will be trained during September 2023, have already demonstrated huge commitment, by learning all the otLIVE hand signs in advance, before the training even starts!

We trust that God will do great things through this group as many more children and adults come to understand the big picture of God’s story and His provision of a Saviour for us, in Christ! 


In the words of some of the instructors: 

I am going to impact my community with otLIVE!

I am going to teach others what I am learning about the Bible!

“Making sure that customers are happy is my priority!”

“Making sure that customers are happy is my priority!”

– meet our office assistant Tshepo Morapdi


I have always loved serving people. It brings me joy to help and put a smile on someone’s face. My job is to assist Walk Thru the Bible staff members and customers in various ways – including the preparation and packaging of orders. Making sure that customers are happy when receiving their parcels, is my priority.

I love that Walk Thru the Bible is one of the tools that God is using to take His Word to people. This also fits in with my personal life mission of sharing the good news with everyone – especially with people who have never heard of or experienced God’s love.

How did I come to know Christ as Saviour? I grew up in church from a young age. I took the decision to accept Christ as my personal Saviour when I was 14, when there used to be a pastor holding crusades in our village. I also joined Faith Mission, and have never looked back.

And what do I do for fun? Could it be how every Saturday morning I dress up and go for a jog and then end up strolling around Soweto.

I look forward to seeing you and serving you at the office.




First training of otLIVE instructors from Scripture Union

First training of otLIVE instructors from Scripture Union

We are delighted to have trained the first instructors from Scripture Union who will be taking otLIVE into the schools where they work.

Through this, we pray that many young people will come to understand the big picture of God’s story – and His gift to us in Christ.

Some of these new otLIVE instructors share their feedback…


It is amazing that you can learn and understand the whole Old Testament in just a few hours! And you never get bored. I love how it shows one story connecting to another. The hand signs also make it easy to understand and remember. I highly recommend otLIVE – even to parents who want to teach the Word of God to their children.   ~ Jeffery


otLIVE will be an amazing tool for us as we engage with kids. This can be easily taught to children to help them understand the Bible in a real way and see how it all fits together. The hand signs also help them to really catch on quickly. This will really have an impact in the schools that we are in and add value to what we are doing. Actually, it’s mind-shifting to be able to visualize the Old Testament coming together – and to see where all the bits slot into the big picture!         ~ Warren


What I loved about otLIVE, is that I now understand the flow and fit of stories in the Bible. It’s great that by teaching otLIVE to kids, they can understand the big story of the Bible – and if you understand the big story, then you really appreciate what Christ did for us. Also, personally, otLIVE helped me develop an appetite for the Word of God – to really dive deep into the stories. The Word is alive and always speaks to us! ~ Stacey


otLIVE simplified the Old Testament for me to understand. I needed this training! This is an amazing tool to reach young people. otLIVE will change lives.


otLIVE will be so helpful in getting the kids in the schools to understand the Bible better. But actually, it’s not just for kids – otLIVE ignites passion for everyone to read the Bible. I’ll be teaching more young people (and old) to know the Bible with this tool.


otLIVE unpacks the big picture of the Old Testament in an engaging way – helping people to learn and undertand the major people and palces of the Old Testament in just a few hours. For more about otLIVE, please click here.


A peep behind the scenes

A peep behind the scenes



We are delighted for you to meet Sally Stumbles…

One of our team who help to make it all happen in the background 

Sally’s role is largely online, as an administrative assistant. She works part-time to help control, monitor, and track various systems and procedures – to help Walk Thru the Bible better meet its commitments and deadlines.


In her words:
This is really about assisting the processes that help to drive the mission of Walk Thru the Bible. This involves helping to ensure efficiency and ongoing communication with various people involved so that those ‘at the front’ can focus on the vision of igniting a passion for God’s word.

With a background as a trained teacher, I have been blessed with many different work opportunities in varied communities. Each of these roles has come with different responsibilities and challenges, which, with God’s guidance, have strengthened and grown me.

I have come to learn the importance of teamwork, organisational skills, and working towards the upliftment of lives in the community. The work I now do at Walk Thru the Bible is allowing me to both build on and use my past experience.


My journey as a Christian
When I was 9 years old, my parents sent me to a Scripture Union camp. At the end of a talk, I raised my hand to say ‘I wanted to follow Jesus’. However, it was only later in my high school years, that I realised what this commitment involved. I met a group of young people on a holiday and learned from them that following Jesus was a daily way of living. A solid Bible-based church and a year in Youth With a Mission also helped to give me a stronger foundation where my faith became more of a reality and lifestyle.


And lastly some fun facts …
I was born in a tiny desert town in Namibia – to this day I am most happy in a place of solitude in the middle of nowhere. My family and I have recently moved to Somerset West. We all love outdoor adventures, specifically hiking, camping, and time in the bush. This is where I am particularly aware of God and His magnificent creation.




A harvest in Kenya

A harvest in Kenya

Never underestimate the impact of one well-equipped Bible teacher!


Every year, Walk Thru the Bible trains and equips thousands of pastors and Bible teachers in some of the world’s most under-resourced regions. In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, more than 80 percent of these pastors have never received any formal training in leadership or theology. Some, in their congregations, may not even have a Bible. A severe shortage of training opportunities and resources, coupled with the exponential growth of Christianity in the Global South, has created an urgent and growing need.

As Walk Thru the Bible seeks to address this need through providing equipping and resourcing opportunities, we witness how God can use a single life to ignite passion for His Word in an entire region.

In rural Kenya, Pastor Christopher Bera is an individual who is making an enormous impact.
Kenya is home to more than 52 million people, and is the 48th largest country in the world by land area. As Pastor Bera travels to his churches, in rural areas and in places like Mombasa, he teaches Walk Thru the Bible’s Old and New Testament overview events (otLIVE and ntLIVE) to his people.


“When I was trained by Walk Thru the Bible, I learned so much. I began implementing what I learned from the training in my churches and in my ministry,” he said. “Walk Thru the Bible’s training has been a wonderful resource. otLIVE and ntLIVE have simplified the study of the Bible and all of our leaders understand it better. Many of these are pastors who have never received any formal biblical training. Now they can teach it to their people.”

He explains that by using Walk Thru the Bible training and materials, he has grown the leadership team in one area to more than 50 leaders, and about 30 of those leaders are actively involved in teaching in the churches and schools in their community. “This team is reaching more than 10 000 students and others every term,” he said.

He and his team have also planted a church in Kamasielo, a rural area in western Kenya. “This church started as a weekly meeting to discuss otLIVE and ntLIVE,” said Chris. “After a little while, the meeting attracted so many people from the area that they formed a church. By using Walk Thru the Bible teaching, that church has grown to 60 members.”

In Pastor Bera’s experience, Walk Thru the Bible offers a unique opportunity.
He recently traveled to Mombasa to visit his churches there. He introduced otLIVE to some of these small, home churches, which are also located in an area with many from another faith. “Walk Thru is an easy way to introduce people to the Bible, to open the church to people of other faiths,” he said. “We aren’t allowed to do a crusade or a revival in Mombasa, but we can teach this material. Just in that one area, we can reach 2 000 people a year.”

People are being grounded in the Word of God
By equipping Pastor Bera with high-quality biblical resources, Walk Thru the Bible is directly making a difference in countless lives in Kenya. He has a dream that in ten years, his team can reach at least 100 000 people in Kenya with Walk Thru the Bible. “When you teach Walk Thru the Bible’s materials,” he said, “it is like pouring oil into the Indian Ocean because it just goes, very quickly, to reach other places. Kenya will be different because of Walk Thru resources. People are being taught the Bible with true doctrine and in a very easy-to-understand way. They are becoming grounded in the Word of God.”

When one person has the resources they need to teach the Bible and to teach others to do the same, there’s no limit to the harvest their ministry will yield!

“This training transformed my children’s ministry, and it’s great for parents too”

“This training transformed my children’s ministry, and it’s great for parents too”

My name is Theko from Maseru, Lesotho. I am part of a ministry to about 120 children in 3 different districts. 


I hadn’t been involved much in Sunday School teaching until I was approached to help. But It was a daunting challenge for me. I was doing it, but it was difficult, and connecting with the kids was a problem.

Really, I was doing it the best way I knew how which was preaching or trying cell group tactics – like reading the text and trying to discuss it.

But I couldn’t divorce from the fact that the kids looked bored and I was struggling to keep them engaged and get them to understand the material. 

But then I attended the KidZ at Heart training and what an eye-opener it was! This has transformed my children’s ministry. I think even parents should do it!

I learned how to grab the children’s attention from the moment they enter the door. It really helped to learn that different children learn in different ways. I now use different interesting activities to help them understand the topic.

I also learned how to help the children connect with God for themselves and talk to HIm about what they have learned – and this has been so special.

Make time to do this training! I so highly recommend it.
