Soul in the City time again or Church in the Community. Last week and weekend we again had the priviledge of serving our community in this special way.
We have a school attached to our church and the young people from several local churches came together for this time of mission. They sleep and eat in the school and mornings are taken up with prayer and Bible study and preparation for going out into the community. What do they do when there, anything from social action to praying for people with fun and games for children.
The evenings are full of activities in our local park. Saturday and Sunday were family fun days where everything is free including the food.
Many families came and took part in face painting and various games with the inflatables being a big hit. The girls enjoyed a special girls zone with jewellery making, hair styling, nails and a make-up for the older ones. Many people were prayed for and 19 people accepted Jesus as their Savior with 4 more saying that the pains and problems they had asked for prayer for had vanished.
When all is done and packed away about 9.0 pm the young people go back to the school and have a time of praise and worship. They were so encouraged this year with supernatural manifestations of oil and gold dust on their hands they wanted to stay up all night worshiping instead of going to bed.
Here we have a few random photos.
