otLIVE recently launched in Southern Africa, with the training of the first instructors at Mackouwkuil Lodge in Limpopo.

This launch also saw the introduction of the new easy to use WorkMap.

The instructors got off to an enthusiastic start and also had the opportunity to test teach otLIVE to a group at the nearby Fokus Deo Church in Modimolle.

Pastor of Fokus Deo, Johan Brits, who attended the otLIVE test teaching, shared his experience:

“What is great about otLIVE is that it’s not a boring seminar where you just sit and listen. otLIVE is interactive and fun! There is so much value in a whole church learning how the Old Testament fits together and understanding God’s journey with His people. After the event, we all enjoyed a meal together – and it was great to hear everybody talking about the Old Testament over lunch.”

Hannelie Taljaard, another otLIVE attendee at Fokus Deo, had this to say:

I have to admit that now I enjoy and understand the Old Testament far more!

“otLIVE more than surprised me with the presentation and material! The way in which the Old Testament was explained was so insightful and visual. The hand signs and practical participation got everyone enthusiastically involved. There was also a great atmosphere of fun and learning.”
