Martin Holdt 1941 - 2011 A vigorous, forceful, and biblical preacher, Martin Holdt preached Christ in his native South Africa and in other countries. In the fear of God he endeavoured always to preach the uncompromised truth of God’s Word. Martin Holdt’s son says of him, “I clearly remember the passion and fervour with which he preached. He loved Christ. He loved the Word of God. He loved the church of our Lord Jesus.” Martin Holdt was also a faithful example of Christ and a warrior in prayer.
