Tent Mission Announcement Easter 2022

Date: 13th April 2022.

Dear Fellow Believers,

Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ, The Lord. May His Love, Joy and Peace be yours and the whole Family. Jesus is Lord of all.

I am so glad that I am able to communicate with you all after a long time of the communication breakdown. A lot of things have happened during that time, more of bad than the good; but it is still in the Book: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God. To them who are the called according to His purpose.” We are still alive in the land of the living, probably for a reason and for His purpose.

In the midst of my grieving and mourning for my late wife, Emily, the children decided to fulfil her wish of organizing a Birthday Party for my 70th year. It was in Emily’s heart, mind and tongue for the whole of 2020. The Children put it together on 17 September 2021. The hired Tent was packed. The Guest Speaker, after the delivery of his message, looked at the audience and said: “I don’t know what to give to the Bishop as a Birthday Gift, I know he doesn’t need money(OMG)”. And then he turned towards me and said: “ Bishop, I am giving you my White Tent the one that sits 2000 people. Please come and take it, it’s all yours.” The audience went crazy, wild!!! I got such a shock, I nearly fell off my chair!! That man never gives anybody anything. Three weeks after the Birthday one of my friends came in to visit me, and he gave me a Blue and White Tent that seats 500 people.

My question was: “Why, God? At my 70th Year!!?

I spent the whole month of September and part of October praying wanting to know the reason for such a gesture. He opened up and said that people in the Churches( amongst my people) don’t know Jesus. They have not been told who is Jesus, what was His purpose in coming, they do not know as to whether He accomplished His purpose. People are accepting Jesus because they are sick in their bodies, some are unemployed etc; etc. And that was not Jesus’ purpose for coming onto the Earth. My mandate, in short is to tell HiStory. And to  Disciples  the converts. Not me per se but to train and release those who are hungry to do what God wants.

We launched the Tent in November, 2021 and I saw something that I never saw before, on the 2nd night, the 2000 Seater Tent was full, with people standing in the aisles. This proved one thing, this is of God.

I am now training my Sons and Daughters and Friends of Maranatha Ministries, in a way God wants them to present the Good News to His people. To you, it will mean: The Old Time Religion.

I visited Cape Town twice already; first to do Vision Casting; the second time around to train those that heard God speak to them. You know I have worked in Cape Town since 1986, I have never witnessed the 2 Pastors’ Fraternals working together like as of now. It is for the first time!!

This is what is about to happen, The Lord willing:

On Monday, 18 April, 2022, 10 of those that were trained in Cape Town last month, will be in Orange Farms, Gauteng. The reason for them to travel to Orange farms is to complete the Training( both Theory and Practicals). They will return to Cape Town on 25 April 2022. Their day, from Tuesday, start at 7.00am with Prayer and breakfast.

At 9h00 the Theory Session Start;

At 11h00 is their Tea Break;

At 11h30 the Practical Start(  Street Evangelism and do Door to Door as well) telling HiStory.

At 13h00 it will be Lunch and rest.

At 19h00 it will be Outreach at the Blue and White Tent, In Extension 1, Orange Farms.

The above will be their Program till Sunday at 13h00. Monday they will then go back to Cape Town.

On 2 May 2022, the 2000-Seater White Tent will be pitched in Gugulethu and 5 of the Trainees will preach the Good News, each taking a slot per evening till Friday. I will then complete the Program for the 1st leg on Saturday, 7 May 2022.

On the 9 May, 2022, The Tent will then be in Khayelitsha, for the 2nd and last leg. The same format will be followed as at the 1st leg. The last 5 Trainees will take the podium till Friday. I will then again close on Saturday, 14 May 2022. The Teams from Johannesburg will travel back on 15 May 2022.

The objectives of this Outreach are:

  1. To carry out the Great Commission and bring harvest into the Kingdom of God;
  2. To mobilize and build an Army of Prayer Warriors in conjunction with the growing Army in South Africa.
  3. To look and find Men and Women of Peace to start small Discovery Bible Study Groups, which will grow into House Churches. These will be responsible for making Disciples. NB: We have done that in Orange Farms and the work is growing.

Prayer Requests:

  1. The Lord to supply all of our needs, starting with the completion of Trainings in Orange Farms to the conclusion of the Gospel Campaign in Cape Town, come mid-May.
  2. The Lord to open doors for great harvest;
  3. The safety of the Teams travelling to and from Cape Town.

I pray that the Lord will guide and help you as you assist us.

May God richly bless and keep you.

Yours with a mark of believer.
