The newest addition to “Wheels” (March 2012) was a partnership with Harvest International Ministries (H.I.M.), a mission organisation that uses the “Hub”-model for organised church planting in Africa. Harvesters Hub Church Planting Model (adopted by Fanie Loots) is an adaption of the original Timothy Training Institute or TTI material (Loots, 2012). This partnership has led to “Wheels” now having a more holistic and comprehensive approach to also include theological training.
Strong partnerships are needed so as to be effective in reaching the entire continent of Africa with the gospel. During the many years of it’s existence “Wheels” has concluded partnership with amongst others:
- Every Home for Christ Anglo Africa;
- Multi Ministries S.A.;
- Samaritan’s Purse (Sudan);
- Love Mozambique;
- Church of God World Missions Cleveland, Tennessee;
- Men and Woman of Action Cleveland, Tennessee;
- Church of God Africa Council;
- Rio Missions, Knoxville Tennessee, and
- Chinese Global Ministries.

The Heart of Man Chart (10 colourful 900 mm X 600 mm pictures) is a visual presentation of the Gospel and is powerfully effective in rural Africa where the people are mostly illiterate. The Chart relates to the condition of a man’s heart through animal pictures which they identify with in every day life and cultural stories. The Charts come in African and European features with explanatory booklet (available in 300 languages world wide).
