The Milners in Capetown

BACK GROUND INFORMATION

After both completing their studies at the Bible Institute, Kalk Bay, Brian & Lorraine joined Africa Evangelical Fellowship in 1974.  They ministered for 11 years in the Christian Ministry to Miners. Then they had a short time in Child Evangelism Fellowship and went on to minister in Scripture Union for 13 years. After that they returned to AEF at the time that it merged with SIM. They served in the SIM (Serving in Mission) sending office for 6 years and then God called them to start a media ministry, with SIM Ethnic Focus, producing DVD media for outreach and teaching purposes. They have produced media for adults, adolescents and older children up to now. Their next project which they are developing is outreach and teaching for young children. They plan to use puppets telling the Gospel lessons. They will be filming an accomplished puppeteer and children’s worker.

Dear Friends,

Greetings to you all in our Saviour’s wonderful Name.

We are preparing to film the last lesson of our next DVD for ages 8 – 10 years. We have a background of a night sky with stars shining brightly, to illustrate the Bible lesson. We were thrilled and encouraged to hear that a grandmother gave 4 of our puppet DVDs to her grandchildren, of different ages, for Easter – instead of Easter eggs! They have been watching them over and over since then. Pray that they will receive Jesus as Saviour as a result.

We have just written an article about our ministry for the next issue of the SIMNOW magazine. Pray that people will use the information to order our DVDs and that many boys and girls will hear the Gospel message through this.

Our new year started with the safe arrival of our 2nd grandson, Aaron James Milner to Dale and Madge, on the 26th January. We rejoice at God’s precious gift to the family. The month of April is a hard month for us as we remember our daughter Charmaine’s death on the 7th April, 2 years ago and she would have turned 40 years on the 22nd. However we rejoice that she is with her Saviour and that one day we will see her in Heaven Our son Dale and family will be on the move again at the end of June.

Our son Andrew, Christy and little Anastasia are excited about their long awaited holiday in Greece in May, to introduce Anastasia to Christy’s family there. Thank you very much indeed for your prayers for us and our ministry. God encourages us often when we know that you are praying.

Thank you for sharing our vision of bringing the Gospel and basic Bible lessons to children through media. Please pray that more DVDs will be ordered as people get to know about them

Yours together in His service,

Brian and Lorraine Milner.
