For the first time East London will be hosting an End-Time Handmaidens and Servants Convention which will include a morning with special focus on Israel.
The conference, entitled Open Heaven, will be attended by the president of ETH&S, Sharon Buss and her husband, vice-president, Philip Buss, who took office in 2013 after the death of founder, Gwen Shaw. ETH&S is a missionary organisation to the nations.
They have ministered all over the world but the nation foremost on their hearts is Israel, where Sharon has been leading tour groups for over 30 years. The ministry has a house in Jerusalem called “The House of Peace”.
They will be leading a team of nine powerful international speakers including Dr Mark Bristow and Rona Spiropolous who will be at the three day convention in Gonubie from August 15 to 17.
They are also joined by anointed musicians Claren and Nancy McQueen.
