The Shofar: Pivot Point
on May 7th, 2021
I believe that as believers we all have pivotal points in our lives.  They can either be very personal or general experiences.  These experiences affect our hearts and minds to the extent that we make changes in our lives.  They can often lead to a deeper understanding of certain aspects of our lives.Personally I have experienced three major pivotal points while in the country I was called to serv...  Read More
The Shofar: Go...
on March 18th, 2021
Not long ago the Lord ask me to go the Israel.  The message was: “Go and preach the Gospel in the synagogues of Jerusalem”.  Preparing to go was not an easy task at all. Firstly, I have never done this before and secondly I have been going to a specific country in the Middle East for a number of years.  By now I have become familiar with the local language and culture of that country.  I could not...  Read More
The Shofar: The Shepherd's Voice - Part 2
on October 6th, 2020
In the first article I mentioned the Bakhtiari tribe. There are many Bakhtiari people that still live according to their traditional way in the South-West of Iran. Bakhtiari nomads migrate twice a year with their herds to find pasture for their herds. During Spring they migrate to the mountains and stay in their Summer quarters. In Autumn they migrate to valleys and the plains and they stay in the...  Read More
The Shofar: GOOD NEWS
on August 28th, 2020
In my life, being involved in missions for 25 years, I have met a lot of people from different backgrounds and cultures.  I truly believe that our heavenly Father loves different cultures with amazing different colours and languages.  No culture is better than the other as we are all born in the image of God.  Culture becomes a problem when it influences the true gospel (the GOOD NEWS) by adding o...  Read More
The Shofar: Fear vs Faith
on July 31st, 2020
I believe that Jesus calls all His followers to participate in the establishment of His Kingdom.  I also believe that the deeds of one are not more significant than the others.  As we read in the Bible:  “Our best efforts are like filthy rags in front of the Lord.  We do it not out of our own flesh but out of His love for us and what He called us to do.”At one stage of my life the Lord called me t...  Read More
Is everyone as lonely as I am?
on July 17th, 2020
Is everyone as lonely as I am?Information is available to us 24/7 these days. You can google anything, anytime. You can find handy YouTube videos about how to fix a flat tire, how to budget, or even how to make 2min noodles. And while that knowledge is beneficial, it can be easy to consume too much information in isolation—which isn’t what we were designed for.God created us to live in community. ...  Read More

Write something for the blog…..something to do with your experiences at Transit…..but remember there are children reading this blog too…..  That was three months ago.I only write if what I write is coming directly from the heart.  You see I am an atmosphere shifter.  That is my God given gift.  I cannot shift atmospheres if it doesn’t come from my heart.  “Why is that”, you might ask?  Well to bre...  Read More
The Shofar: The Shepherd's Voice
on July 2nd, 2020
I have been in “missions” since 1994 and I have been traveling to a fair amount of countries, tribes and remote areas.  I have seen a lot and I have experienced quite a bit in my simple life.  But never have I had a moment like the following.  It lasted only 5 seconds but it left a profound imprint on my heart and mind.  It is with trepidation that I put a trembling hand to paper.If I close my eye...  Read More
What God is busy with and how to become a part of it?
on June 24th, 2020
We often hear people say “we have to become a part of what God is busy with, not the other way around”.  But what does this mean and how can we know what God is busy with?Firstly, I have to think in a new way about what happens to me and those around me and how that is a part of the story of God.We live in the information age.  Information literally is all around us; at our finger tips, on televis...  Read More

The last few weeks I have felt so pressed.My back had been against the wall in many moments.There were emails, deadlines, tests, zoom meetings, house chores and a plethora of other to-dos.I have felt at times like a piece of dough that someone was busy stretching and  s  t  r  e  t  c  h  i  n  g.I have cried, because sometimes there was simply too much to do and time was not on my side.But then, ...  Read More

My name is Zola Moses, and I bring you a story highlighting the challenges faced by black communities on the outskirts of Walmer township.Large numbers of people are forced, because of social challenges, to live together in small spaces sharing almost everything including outside toilets that are still part of the bucket system. As a result, many people get sick because of the challenging and unsa...  Read More

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12). There are three kinds of sins. The first one is inherited sin. The Bible says, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12). The sin of Adam was passed to all me...  Read More
