Homage to the Huguenots

The Latin inscription means: After Darkness their is light."

MBC Class of 2017 paid homage to the French Huguenots yesterday. The historical trauma that the Protestant resistors endured for their faith is inspirational. The monument is worth a visit nestled at the foot of the picturesque Franschhoek mountains. The farms and early industry of the Cape Colony benefited greatly from the arrival of the French Huguenots and the vineyards in the Cape tell of their influence. But more significantly, the seed of faith sown in South Africa, particularly their protestant faith that protested against the Catholic errors of indulgences and other anti-Christ doctrine, is bearing much fruit today in our region. Cape Town is a gateway into Africa and although the city has become well known as a destination for pleasure and other things, we should redeem the spiritual value of a city that embraced the Christian Faith in the continent. From here we are sending missionaries all over the world, and training them to carry the Good News of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the earth. We recently hosted a French believer who had returned to the Lord, and he enjoyed studying the Bible with us at Miracle Bible College. It is also significant that my parents Apostle Andre and Nola Pelser, helped to plant a church in Paris this year! There are plans for a conference later in the year in France where I hope to show the French generation today, that their seeds of faith planted in Africa have produced a great harvest. We saluted the French Huguenot martyrs and will never forget their example of unwavering faith in the face of horrific torture and we continue their work in this continent by His grace.
