When Robert and Roberta Snyder visited Cape Town two years ago, they returned and took it upon themselves to help with the Container Project – Bibles, Sunday School materials and books were needed for the Christians in South Africa. One of the SACM’s objectives is to establish four or five Christian library centers in the townships. That way, the entire community can have access to the Word as well as ordinary reference works for school studies. The first Container arrived in 2004 after many churches and individuals donated funding and boxes of books.
All the Bibles, New Testaments and Halley’s Handbooks were distributed within weeks. The word of mouth spread and the phone rang off the hook! I took the first load of boxes to Queenstown, which enthusiastically welcomed every single box and book. Also, Pastor Sam Jacobs has helped distribute the Bibles and Sunday School materials to churches in the ganglands.
