Dear friend, please read our newsletter for December 2013!
It is December again, the end of 2013, and another year has flown by!
It feels like it was Christmas just the other day, but if you take time to think about the past year, then you quickly realise it was a very busy year with numerous challenges. But we are also very grateful for many victories! We can indeed remind each other that God is in control. The fact of the matter is that there were storms, but the truth is that Jesus is in the boat and He calms every storm! He holds every one of us safely in His hands and He knows us all personally, the Word says that our names are engraved in the palms of His hands.
Crown Ministries was blessed with favour from God to help individuals, congregations and businesses. God's favour enabled us to distribute our Stewardship material that God entrusted to us, in order to sow the Truth into people's lives! We've received many testimonies throughout the course of the year, specifically about how people's lives have been radically impacted by the newfound knowledge that EVERYTHING belongs to God and that we are appointed to merely manage all that God has put in our possession.
It is always a joy to say thank you at the end of the year. Thank you so much to each and every one who faithfully stood with us this year as facilitators and small group leaders with the Biblical Financial Small Group Study products and also to all the Career Direct consultants who invested in people's lives in a powerful way. We believe the Lord honours the time and effort that you've given to others. A huge thank you also to our donors who made it financially possible for us to distribute Biblical Stewardship material nationwide and to minister to the people of South Africa. Thank you also to our prayer partners, each one of you is important in this ministry!
May you truly experience God's peace and joy during this festive season. Our King became servant as the Lamb, but know this, He will come back to rule and reign as the Lion of Juda. Our prayer is that the Lord will equip us all to make a difference in 2014 as faithful stewards!
Please make sure that you order your Biblical Financial Small Group Studies early in 2014. We also remind everyone who wants to attend the Career Direct Consultant training from 5 to 7 February in Durbanville, to register early in order to avoid disappointment.

We have taken the existing Afrikaans workbook "Die ABC van Hoe om Geld op God se Manier te Hanteer" (a bible-based study for 5 to 7 year old children), and have transformed it into a new and beautiful creative workbook!
Along with this, we have also produced the stories in the new workbook on a high quality audio CD which results in the characters coming to life in an exciting way throughout the 12 chapters to take the children through this spontaneous and practical journey of learning to apply the godly principles of handling their finances. The Treasure Chest set can also be used along with the workbook and audio CD to make a complete and very useful learning package for the kids.
Click hereto find out more about this exciting new package that can be the ideal Christmas gift for your kids!
The Crown office will be closed from 17 December until 7 January. You can make contact with Adriaan Louw during the holidays at firstname.lastname@example.org or 083 336 7365.
A blessed festive time to you all! The Crown SA Team
