Rustenburg, South Africa
The Agapé Church of the Nazarene in Rustenburg, South Africa, recently held their 13th annual Kinderfees (Children's Festival). According to Kinderfees Coordinator Elmarie de Beer, "This year was not different from previous years: God was on the move!"

Children's Pastor Danie Jacobs reported: "At the Kinderfees, we work in groups according to the grades of the children, from pre-school to grade seven. We had a total enrollment of 952 (804 children and 148 volunteer workers). Daily attendance was between 650-700.

"Our theme for 2010 was 'Jesus Champs!'," Jacobs continued. "We gave them some perspective on how God uses ordinary people in their circumstances, even if it is difficult - like Joseph and Esther.

"We made use of characters, dramas, dances, video clips, music, and preaching of the Word to minister to the kids. God blessed us in so many ways, we had enough money to provide for all our needs, and the kids could attend for free!"

Agapé Senior Pastor Dawie de Koker reported more than 200 children received Christ as their personal savoir during this weeklong outreach.

"They are now being followed up with, and invited to attend our church," de Koker said.

At the closing ceremony on Sunday morning, hundreds of parents and children came, and Leane Weel, a children's worker at Agapé, presented the gospel one more time. The service was held in a tent-structure due to the construction of the church's new worship center.
