In June and July 2019, Mr Tona Moroke, a graduate from the Centre for Contextual Ministry in the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Pretoria, participated in a health and wellness outreach, led by Elim Gospel Church, which took him on a tour across Southern Africa. He affirmed that it was an effective, practical application of his faith, providing him with the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Africa is a very hospitable continent, Mr Moroke noted, one that he believes can become a home for everyone if communities are transformed by means of Christian service. His approach to helping others through the Church has radically changed as a result of the venture, which included stops in Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Kenya and Tanzania.
Furthermore, he claimed that this community-driven approach to ministry is the best way to assess how religious involvement in African societies can at the same time satisfy the deep spiritual needs of the people that live in them.
