What a wonderful time we had in the presence of Jesus when we gathered together with Pastor Deon and Helen Bosch and the church family in Bloemfontein. At first I really was not sure what the Lord was going to do, but by the Tuesday evening, the heavens opened and we had such a sense of Jesus in the house that we almost never left the building. People opened their hearts to Him in such a wonderful way and the Blessed Holy Spirit directed our hearts accordingly. I love to sit in the presence of Jesus and experienced His love in this way, In fact, I told Pastor Deon, "I functioned the best when I am in His presence".
I am confident that as we the Church pursue His heart, as we prepare the way of the Lord, we will see His glory fill the very atmosphere and so it is to this end that we continue to pray. I know the Lord has a tremendous plan for Bloemfontein and we are happy to walk in obedience to His word in this city and be a part of the mandate Jesus has set in place for a time such as this.
Spending time with Deon was a real highlight. The way in which the congregation received me was way beyond my expectations and I was extremely grateful for all the Lord had done during the time we had together. I felt I should have stayed on as I believed the Lord was working in the hearts of His precious people in such a profound way during these meetings, but in the end, we finished off knowing that Jesus had touched them in a powerful way.
