“Just before the Lockdown we had the privilege of doing otLIVE at three different schools in the inner city of Johannesburg”.

This is the report of Mr Welcome Ndlovu and Mr Seabird Siziba from Smart Choices South Africa – who presented otLIVE in the schools in partnership with Walk Thru the Bible Southern Africa and Beacon of Hope. Mr Ndlovu and Mr Siziba were both Trained at a Walk Thru the Bible otLIVE Instructor Training Event in Johannesburg at the end of 2019.

“We were able to teach the big picture of the Old Testament to over 1526 children during this time – which included both primary and high school learners. 20% of these children accepted Christ as their Saviour. We know this because of the response cards they complete. We will also have the opportunity to follow up with these children and the children approach us freely afterwards with questions.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The children have really loved otLIVE.
They love following the story and the hand signs – which are easy to understand. otLIVE captures their attention. It really creates an interest and enthusiasm for the Bible. When we first tell them that we are going to cover the whole of the Old Testament in this short time, they don’t believe us, but they receive the message very well. One of the special highlights is teaching the Passover principle, which really impacts the kids.

But for now, while we are in Lockdown, we are longing to get back to the schools. We are missing the children…
Now, it is very difficult, very few children have returned to schools – and the situation is stressful with distancing and catching up curriculum. The children, teachers and families all face many challenges. Please pray that the Lord will soon open the door for our work in the schools to resume again. We have so many plans and are learning how to do better all the time.”

 

otLIVE is a fun and interactive way to understand the big picture of God’s story in the Old Testament. Have you thought of doing otLIVE at your school or church?
