October 2022 Outreach Report 01

To: Friends of The Ministry.

From: Peter M. Sekhonyane(Bishop).

Subject: Ongoing Outreaches.

Date: 3 November 2022.

Dear Friend,

Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ, The Lord. May His Love, Joy and Peace be yours and the brethren with you. Recently, my Leaders in IPC( International Prayer Connect), attended a conference in Los Angeles with the Theme: Finishing The Task. I was amazed of the heavenly coincidence, because here in South Africa, the above-named Ministry, has embarked on Finishing the Task since September 2021. In the month of September 2021, the Lord blessed me with 2 Tents( One a 2000 Seater and the other a 500 Seater). The message was clear, finish the task. This report is about all we are doing on our part of finishing the task, With Children Prayer Ministry( The Royal Kids Of South Africa), Youth Prayer Ministry( UPRISING S. A.) and the Main Maranatha Revival Ministries( basically an Outreach Ministry.) The last week of October 2022…


They took to the streets after school, with pamphlets announcing the coming of the Good News Campaign that was to start on 24-30 October, 2022. Armed with the pamphlets and a Booklet: Bread of Life, received from the Late Graham Power( to help in the Outreaches), the children pounded the streets of Extension 1, Proper, Orange Farms. Knocking on every door of that Section, praying with the Families, talking to all people they were meeting in the streets. It was no longer a strange spectacle to see even elderly people lifting up their hands in the street to pray or be prayed for by the children. This has to be seen to believe, hence you are invited to visit Orange Farms. We will be happy to welcome you. The work done by the Royal Kids Of South Africa led the Tent to be full on the very first night of the Campaign. Never underestimate the power of Children praying. They are in South Africa amongst the fore-runners in carrying out the Great Commission. They are a marvel to watch when doing it.


These are a combination of School going and out of School young people. Working in and amongst the Youth. Basically praying for them. The majority of these graduated from the Royal Kids Of South Africa. They also do Door-to-Door and Street Evangelism. Their strength is in the Open Air Outreaches and in Prayer. In the last Tent Outreach(24-30 October 2022) they worked their feet off as Ushers and Counsellors to those who gave their lives to Jesus. They also allocated them to various House Churches for Discipleship purposes. UPRISING S. A. are also a marvel to watch at their work.


These are basically the Discipleship Leadership Team at work. They are House Church Leaders based in Orange Farms( Gauteng Province), Cape Town( Black Townships) Western Cape Province, and in East London( Eastern Cape Province)… for now. Please bear in mind that The Great Commission has 2 sides: “ Go ye into the whole World and preach The Gospel to all creatures, whosoever believes and is baptized shall be saved; whosever does not believe shall be damned….”Mark 16:15-16. “All power has been given to me in Heaven and on Earth, Go ye therefore and make Disciples of all the Nations, baptizing them in the Name of The Father, In the Name of the Son and in the Name of the Spirit; teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you…”Matthew 28:18-20. Taking these into consideration, adding them alongside Jesus Christ’s Words: “ The harvest truly is plenteous  but the labourers are few, Pray to The Lord of the Harvest to send labourers into his fields.”

That is the reason why we conduct the Tent Outreaches. The purpose is 2 fold, to bring in the harvest and immediately place them into the existing House Churches to be Discipled. The preachers in these Tents are either still in a Discipleship Class OR is a Discipleship Leader already running a DBS( Discovery Bible Series) in his/ her House Church.

These are trained to do ONE MINUTE WITNESS and to Narrate Jesus’s Story, we simply call them, “ HiStory”( pronounced “His Story”) Teams. We have made 2 discoveries, 1. People in the Churches, YES, in Churches, don’t know Jesus Christ: Who is He, What was His purpose for coming, has He achieved that purpose. They simply don’t know Him, hence they don’t have a relationship with Him. 2. Churches are full of members/converts but no Disciples. These are the issues we are mandated to address in the Tent Outreaches and in the Churches where we are invited. We are just focussed in the GOOD NEWS Of JESUS CHRIST. HiStory relates all.

October 2022 Outreach Report 02

From 24-30 October, 219 accepted Him as their Lord and Saviour. Our Orange Farms House Churches has grown now to 33 confirmed. To all of us, this is just a drop in the ocean. The Lord willing, we will continue with these type of Outreaches.

Thank you for your Prayers and for your Financial support.

May He remember you for all that you are doing.

May He bless and keep you.

Yours in His Service.

Cape Town Children Outreach 01

To: Friends of The Royal Kids Of South Africa.

From: Peter M. Sekhonyane( Bishop)

Subject: Cape Town Outreach.

15 October 2022.

Dear Friend,

Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ, The Lord. May His Love, Joy and Peace be with you. He is Lord of all.

It gives me great pleasure to compile and issue the report on how the Royal kids Of South Africa fared in their Outreach in Cape Town, South Africa. Their Outreach, once again, proved true to God’s revelation in the month of April 2008, when The Royal Kids was established in South Africa. He said teaching them to pray and teaching them the Word will result in them interceding for Nations and carrying out the Great Commission. You have to see them at their work and you will understand why God said this from the onset.The entourage was 31 Children and 7 Teachers. Left Johannesburg on 3 October 2022, to travel 1400km by bus. They were so ready and eager, some were traveling for the first time out of Orange Farms( Township in which they reside). They travelled well until they were 500km to Cape Town. The bus in which they travelled was impounded by the Traffic authorities. The driver did not have valid travel permit( and we didn’t know anything as the bus company was selected amongst many at the Bus Station). The bus was impounded at 8.00am and the Kids, in the bus, stayed there for the rest of the day and all night, nearly 24 hours stranded. The Bus Company owners were nowhere to be found, their phones were off all the time.

I board the flight in Johannesburg to Cape Town, got off the flight at 6.00pm, into the car and drove for 500km where the Children were (stuck in the bus). Got there, Beaufort West, at 2.00am bought food for them( they had consumed the provision they had) and arranged 2 taxis to pick them up, another added costs. They reached their destination at 10.00am( on the 3rd day). They washed themselves and had lunch and then insisted that they have come to do Outreach. After Lunch they were joined by the Children of Cape Town, they took to the streets. All the suffering they endured was forgotten. Give me the Children Ministry, Lord!!! 45 people, including children came to the Lord that afternoon.From Thursday to Saturday, the routine was the same but in different areas of Cape Town’s Townships: breakfast in the morning, Outreach till 12.00 noon and then Outreach at 2.00pm till 5.00pm and then Prayer from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. At 7.00pm was the review of the day and testimonies and they closed the day with supper at 8.30pm. The latest compiled records were standing as follow: 1600 converts; 15 House Churches started with minimum of 10 people each, Amazingly, the majority of houses there are shacks but love is just flowing like a mighty river. People fell in love with Children in the Ministry, It can only be God.

Thanking you for your prayer support.

God richly bless and keep you.

Your servant.

Cape Town Children Outreach 02

Creche Teachers in Training

To: Friends of  Ministries.

From: Peter M. Sekhonyane.

Subject: State of The Ministries ( As at 31 August 2022).

Date: 7 September 2022.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Greetings in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ, The Lord. May His Love, Joy and Peace be multiplied in your life as well as in your Ministry. Jesus is Lord of all.

Allow me to refresh your mind concerning the above named Ministries:

  1. We are an Outreach Ministry, carrying on with The Great Commission( Mark 16: 15-20; Matthew 28:18-20). We are working with Local Churches in all of the 9 Provinces.
  2. Alongside the Outreach Ministry, Nationwide, is the Prayer Ministry, National Evangelistic Prayer Watch Outreach( NEPWO). Our mandate is to call the Local Churches back to Prayer. This has been happening since July 2004. We advocate for Day and Night kind of Prayer.
  3. We are a Community orientated Ministry:
    1. Adopted 35 Crèches in the vicinity of the Ministry, Training the management and staff, helping where we can with Teaching Aids); Soon we will be running a Crèche from our Ministry’s premises( taking only 4 to 5 years only).
    2. Running a Children Prayer Ministry, named The Royal Kids Of South Africa: teaching them how to pray, Making Disciples of Children( using Samaritan Purse’s material); helping the Children with Schools’ remedial work; teaching them Life Skills and identifying the Children’s talents( music, dance, public speaking and memory verses); providing warm meals for the Children every week day before going home.
    3. C.  Running Youth Prayer Movement, named UPRISING( United Prayer Rising) most of them are are graduates from the Children Prayer Ministry, teaching them to pray for our Nation and and Nations of the World. Excellent in Prayer and in Outreaches.
    4. D.  Running, professionally, Music Academy named Locrianz, introducing Children and Youth in Basic Music Lessons, guiding them in writing an International Exams, affiliated with IBRM Music School, in London. The Academy started in 2016 and has had 120 Graduates in Grade 1-4, with average of 86% pass rate.
    5. E. Running Feeding Project For Elderly Citizens( Old People), this has been in operation Since 2008. Elderly people are given Vegetable Hampers, every week Wednesday. Fresh Vegetables from the Fields.
    6. F. Soon to start, before the end of the Year 2022, Is the Training of parents of Children
      Between 0 years to 7. We have come to realize that many parents do not know how
      To deal with development of Children between 0 years to 7, the research we carried
      As a Ministry showed that the soaring crime levels are caused by lack of trained
      Parents( not all but a high percentage of parents are untrained to raise children.)

State Of Ministry August 2022

Allow me to remind you again that on 17 September 2021, on my Birthday, I was given as a present, a 2 000 Seater White Tent. In the middle of the first week of October 2021, a gentleman I once worked with, who was not at the Birthday Party, gave me a present of a 500 Seater Blue and White Tent. I sat then with 2 Tents baffled at the meaning of all these. It took me 3 full weeks of Prayer to find out the meaning of all these generous gifts.

At the end of the 3rd week, I got the answer. The mandate was clear, utilize both Tents to carry out the Great Commission fully. Train Labourers to work in and through those Tents, bringing in the harvest into the Kingdom, preaching the Good News of The Lord Jesus Christ. The emphasis was to “bring back the OLD TIME RELIGION,” undiluted. Not only must they preach the Good News, but they must go further and make Disciples of all the Nations.

I then called in all my Sons and Daughters and Friends of the Ministry, and articulated the MANDATE.

On the 23-29 November 2021, we launched the 2 000 White Seater Tent. It was the first time since 1984 to pitch the Tent of that size, but to our amazement the Tent was packed to its capacity on the 2nd night. It was of God. We harvested 279 souls into the Kingdom. We then continued with Discipleship Classes, started and grew to 19 House Churches in Extension 1, Orange Farms. The meetings were being streamed live on Facebook, this resulting the news reaching far places like Cape Town and East London. Before the week was over, we had delegation from East London coming and joining us for the last 3 nights. All were excited to hear and see what The Lord was doing. In the middle of December, 2021 the delegation from Cape Town came on a fact finding Mission. They went back on the 26 of December to arrange a meeting with Sons, Daughters and Friends of the Ministry in Cape Town. The meeting was convened in the late January, 2022.

The meeting resulted in me going to Cape Town from April, 2022 to date. Every month, for 3 to 5 days, at a time, Disciple-ing Leaders and Converts.

At the time of going to the press, all Ministries are progressing well except the Discipleship Training Ministry. We are only into 3 Provinces, Gauteng, Western Cape and Eastern Cape, all at Foundation level with Western Cape leading.


Disciples were trained as to how to reach out on One-On-One, finding the man or woman of peace and then go on to start a DBS( Discovery Bible Series). They were also trained to reach out to Local Churches and tell HiStory and to those re-dedicating their lives to the Lord, group them into DBS small Groups( Disciple-ing them). As at the end of August, 2022; we have 29 DBS Classes( we call them House Churches).WESTERN PROVINCE:

We had Vision Casting in January 2022 and the Training started in March 2022. Training consisted of theory as well as practical. This continued monthly( 3-5 days a month) till the beginning of September, 2022. Presently, there are 37 Leaders doing Discipleship Training in 37 DBS Classes.

PLEASE NOTE: On the 8 October, 2022; The above trained Leaders will Launch a 2 000 Seater Tent Campaign that will take place at Nyanga( For 1 week) on 24-29 October, 2022; and at Khayelitsha( also for 1 week) from 31 October to 5 November 2022. On the day of the Launch, all logistics will be announced. Every Leader trained as a Disciple and those he/she is training will be involved in inviting the local residents( in a door to door operation, never  seen before in Cape Town.EASTERN CAPE:

So far in the Eastern Cape, only 3 Local Churches are participating in Discipleship Training. They are changing the method of Cell Groups into DBS. The recent report show how passionate the individual Trainees are progressing in the Series.Hoping to see you visit us in Orange Farms( to see for yourself what is happening on the ground) Or in Cape Town in October. We will be delighted to be with you.

Please continue to support us in Prayer as well as in Finances( as the Lord lead You).

May the Lord richly bless and keep you.

With the mark of a believer,

Tent Mission Announcement Easter 2022

Date: 13th April 2022.

Dear Fellow Believers,

Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ, The Lord. May His Love, Joy and Peace be yours and the whole Family. Jesus is Lord of all.

I am so glad that I am able to communicate with you all after a long time of the communication breakdown. A lot of things have happened during that time, more of bad than the good; but it is still in the Book: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God. To them who are the called according to His purpose.” We are still alive in the land of the living, probably for a reason and for His purpose.

In the midst of my grieving and mourning for my late wife, Emily, the children decided to fulfil her wish of organizing a Birthday Party for my 70th year. It was in Emily’s heart, mind and tongue for the whole of 2020. The Children put it together on 17 September 2021. The hired Tent was packed. The Guest Speaker, after the delivery of his message, looked at the audience and said: “I don’t know what to give to the Bishop as a Birthday Gift, I know he doesn’t need money(OMG)”. And then he turned towards me and said: “ Bishop, I am giving you my White Tent the one that sits 2000 people. Please come and take it, it’s all yours.” The audience went crazy, wild!!! I got such a shock, I nearly fell off my chair!! That man never gives anybody anything. Three weeks after the Birthday one of my friends came in to visit me, and he gave me a Blue and White Tent that seats 500 people.

My question was: “Why, God? At my 70th Year!!?

I spent the whole month of September and part of October praying wanting to know the reason for such a gesture. He opened up and said that people in the Churches( amongst my people) don’t know Jesus. They have not been told who is Jesus, what was His purpose in coming, they do not know as to whether He accomplished His purpose. People are accepting Jesus because they are sick in their bodies, some are unemployed etc; etc. And that was not Jesus’ purpose for coming onto the Earth. My mandate, in short is to tell HiStory. And to  Disciples  the converts. Not me per se but to train and release those who are hungry to do what God wants.

We launched the Tent in November, 2021 and I saw something that I never saw before, on the 2nd night, the 2000 Seater Tent was full, with people standing in the aisles. This proved one thing, this is of God.

I am now training my Sons and Daughters and Friends of Maranatha Ministries, in a way God wants them to present the Good News to His people. To you, it will mean: The Old Time Religion.

I visited Cape Town twice already; first to do Vision Casting; the second time around to train those that heard God speak to them. You know I have worked in Cape Town since 1986, I have never witnessed the 2 Pastors’ Fraternals working together like as of now. It is for the first time!!

This is what is about to happen, The Lord willing:

On Monday, 18 April, 2022, 10 of those that were trained in Cape Town last month, will be in Orange Farms, Gauteng. The reason for them to travel to Orange farms is to complete the Training( both Theory and Practicals). They will return to Cape Town on 25 April 2022. Their day, from Tuesday, start at 7.00am with Prayer and breakfast.

At 9h00 the Theory Session Start;

At 11h00 is their Tea Break;

At 11h30 the Practical Start(  Street Evangelism and do Door to Door as well) telling HiStory.

At 13h00 it will be Lunch and rest.

At 19h00 it will be Outreach at the Blue and White Tent, In Extension 1, Orange Farms.

The above will be their Program till Sunday at 13h00. Monday they will then go back to Cape Town.

On 2 May 2022, the 2000-Seater White Tent will be pitched in Gugulethu and 5 of the Trainees will preach the Good News, each taking a slot per evening till Friday. I will then complete the Program for the 1st leg on Saturday, 7 May 2022.

On the 9 May, 2022, The Tent will then be in Khayelitsha, for the 2nd and last leg. The same format will be followed as at the 1st leg. The last 5 Trainees will take the podium till Friday. I will then again close on Saturday, 14 May 2022. The Teams from Johannesburg will travel back on 15 May 2022.

The objectives of this Outreach are:

  1. To carry out the Great Commission and bring harvest into the Kingdom of God;
  2. To mobilize and build an Army of Prayer Warriors in conjunction with the growing Army in South Africa.
  3. To look and find Men and Women of Peace to start small Discovery Bible Study Groups, which will grow into House Churches. These will be responsible for making Disciples. NB: We have done that in Orange Farms and the work is growing.

Prayer Requests:

  1. The Lord to supply all of our needs, starting with the completion of Trainings in Orange Farms to the conclusion of the Gospel Campaign in Cape Town, come mid-May.
  2. The Lord to open doors for great harvest;
  3. The safety of the Teams travelling to and from Cape Town.

I pray that the Lord will guide and help you as you assist us.

May God richly bless and keep you.

Yours with a mark of believer.
