  • To establish a network with the local pastors, ministries, schools and old age homes whereby Global Recording material could be strategically placed and slowly introduced in new areas if proven useful.
  • To be informed about new needs, provide help where needed and to act as mentors for these groups.
  • To monitor accountability for the material been used by these people.


  • Meet with Pastor John and other local pastors to discuss the spiritual needs of their church and Sunday schools and to introduce the Look, Listen & Live series with its players and the Sunday school material.
  • We trust the Lord for an open door at the old age home in Senekal to see if they are in need of a Colin for Alzheimer's patients.
  • If possible, we would like to visit the crèches in Senekal to see if there is a spiritual need for Tumi the Tiger.


  • Meet with the Pastor of Dishabeng Church (Regions Beyond Ministry) to determine if they may benefit from using the Look, Listen & Live series as well as the Sunday school set.
