If you are reading this you have probably heard of the Speak Jesus national prayer day which will be led by farmer evangelist Angus Buchan on a huge field in Krugersdorp on Heritage Day — Saturday September 24.
But you may not yet have heard of a Kareedouw man’s plan to host a big prayer event in that small Eastern Cape town — an event that will not only be held on the same day as the prayer gathering 1 200km to the north, in Krugersdorp, but which will also be called Speak Jesus.
You may wonder what Angus Buchan thinks of this “twin” event. I asked him yesterday and he said it has his blessing and is a sign of revival.
You see, the Kareedouw event was not Christo’s idea. Before he had even heard of the Speak Jesus prayer day in Krugersdorp, he said God told him to “go big” with an open-air prayer and worship event in Kareedouw on September 24 and that the event should be called Speak Jesus.
The day after God spoke to him about the event, Christo learned of the Speak Jesus prayer day in Krugersdorp being organised by Angus Buchan’s Shalom Ministries. The fact that the Shalom event will be in Krugersdorp stood out for Christo because just before the Lord spoke to him about the Kareedouw prayer event, he and his wife, Maryke, were participating in an online worship service with a church in Krugersdorp.
Christo said he immediately contacted Jannie Moolman of Shalom Ministries and told him what God had said to him and asked him if Shalom would mind them using the name Speak Jesus for the Kareedouw prayer event. He said Jannie responded positively, saying it just confirmed that “Uncle Angus” had heard God correctly about the Krugersdorp prayer day.
Christo, who works as a construction contractor, told Gateway News that recently God called him and Maryke to move from the Tsitsikamma to Kareedouw, where they own a plot and are involved in youth ministry and other Kingdom projects. He said their divine assignment in the town is to be light in the darkness and to restore the spiritual walls and build the house of the Lord. When God sent them to the town he also gave them the book of Haggai which mentions some specific dates pertaining to the ministry of the biblical prophet. Haggai 2:10 (On the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to the prophet Haggai) played a part in confirming the date of the Jesus Speak event, he said.
Listen to the audio clip below in which Christo shares how God instructed him to host a Speak Jesus prayer and worship day in Kareedouw on September 24:
The Kareedouw event will begin with a Jesus march through the town at 3pm, followed by prayer and worship on the fields of the Paul Sauer High School where they will speak Jesus over the town, the Langkloof, the R62 and South Africa. They are expecting local people and people from other towns to attend the free event.
He said that in obedience to God’s instructions they are going as big as possible, including bringing in a massive stage from East London.
“There really is a quickening in the spiritual realm that the Lord is busy with — a big, big thing in South Africa. I mean, you really can hear the sound of revival,” he said.
Anybody who wants more information about the free event is welcome to contact him at 076 835 3622, said Christo.
