A story from Xolani, an otLIVE instructor, who has found creative ways to minister despite the pandemic…

“We have just started weekly otLIVE lessons which we run on Sundays in the yard of our home.

About 30 children from the community attend. We do the otLIVE lessons outside and try to comply with government regulations regarding social distancing and mask-wearing. Not easy with children!

(otLive is the new version of Walk Thru the Bible’s popular Old Testament Seminar, which uses interactive hand signs to teach the big picture of the Old Testament.)

This has been like a breath of fresh air for our family to get back to serving the kids. And you can see that the children have just been yearning for this!




Things are very tough for people generally in our community. The economic fallout from the pandemic has been massive. Families are in distress. Many have lost their jobs. The children often arrive hungry – so our church has been involved in reaching out with food parcels.”


(The outreach project for vulnerable children run by Xolani’s church is supported by Walk Thru the Bible, in partnership with turn the tide 4 children.)
