The "Hardware"

Saturday's "packing day" and the Sound guys turn up to ready the "Sound-Van" for Sundays reach-out.  It is a buzzing of brooms and crate stacking as we go about cleaning and re-organising. Everyone is making sure that the equipment is clean and working as we dont want to delay the service.

Sunday morning 8 o'clock and the team couples the Sound van to the "bakkie" or LT as it is known internationally and we set off to the chosen location.  It takes roughly 30 to 40 minutes to set up the scene and we are ready to go.

Firelighters do not own any buildings so depending on what the Lord does we hold the service wherever the location allows us.
As one can surmise from the text and pictures this is a very much a "hands-on" excercise and requires robust hardware to successfully reach the crowd.  Currently the sound system can reach on average 100 + attendees in a church or hall and we can reach even more in an "Open-air" setup like a stadium or empty plot.

You may ask why ?

The short on the long is that we minister where God sends us.  Mostly it is to the people that are neglected and is not church going.  They have a need to hear that there is hope and there is still a God who cares regardless whether we care to hear about Him or not.

As we read in the King James version of the bible in

2 Timothy 4:2-5
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.   For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

One thing we learned since the inception of Firelighters Ministries in 2004 that God is faithful always and have always provided what the ministry needed to fulfil the task God has given us.

We do not always have food and other stuff to give to the people but alas God's word is clear as in

Acts 3:6
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
