There are less than 10 days to go before the first Eastern Free State Mighty Men Conference, called the Maluti Mighty Men, kicks off from April 13 to 15 on the scenic farm Karmel near Fouriesburg.
After the final Karoo Mighty Men Conference last year a few friends from the Eastern Free State decided to launch the MMMC this year.
“After a lot of praying and emails we got the go-ahead from Shalom Ministries and received the great news that Uncle Angus Buchan will be preaching Sunday April 15 at the family service,” says MMMC chairman Werner Maree.
“With only three months to organise this event, the committee, volunteers, farmers, businessmen and farm workers all worked very hard to make this possible. We are in the final stage of preparations and all are well under way.
Line-up of speakers
“We are very excited about the speakers, with Gary Kieswetter spreading God’s word on Friday night April 13 from 6pm. Gary is a well-known preacher, teacher, lover of the word of God, author, radio and television personality and father figure to many. After 27 years in full-time ministry, his biggest desire is that people will experience the joy of an intimate relationship with their Heavenly Father,” says Maree.
“On Saturday morning at 9.30am Pastor Afrika Mhlophe will bless us with the word. We invite all farm workers and encourage all farmers to bring their workers to pray together. Afrika is a gifted teacher of the Bible who has ministered on various platforms in South Africa and abroad for the last 20 years.
“On Saturday evening at 6pm guest speaker Albert Ferreira will share his message with us. Albert is a farmer and businessman from Senekal. His passion is ministering about the role and responsibility of the man in the house.
“On Sunday morning we are honoured to host and listen to Uncle Angus Buchan during the family service. No introduction is needed for Mr Buchan, an anointed man of God. We believe his message will touch many hearts.
“The praise and worship for the weekend is led by well-known evangelist and singer Dewald Gouws and his band. His songs create hope in our hearts for South Africa.
“Well-known Afrikaans singer Juanita du Plessis will join Dewald Gouws in leading the praise and worship on Sunday morning during the family service from 9.15am,” he says.
Venue and facilities
The venue is the farm Karmel which is located about 8km outside Fouriesburg on the R26 Bethlehem road.
“Part of the MMMC experience is camping on site between the mountains for the weekend. You are welcome to bring you gas braaier (no open fires), lights and camping equipment. Hot and cold showers and clean toilets are available. There are also food stalls from the local churches in the vendors’ area.
“Day visitors are welcome — bring your own chair, sunscreen and hat. We also have special needs facilities for disabled persons, please notify us if in need of this service.
“We hope and expect that each man, son, mom, daughter, grandfather, and grandmother will arrive with a big expectation to receive the word of God and that many souls will be harvested for Jesus Christ’s kingdom.
“The MMM Committee would like to invite all men and boys to join us for the Friday and Saturday and all women, mothers and kids for the Sunday family service.”
Registration, entry, camping and the family service on Sunday are all for free.
