PE businessman David Naude who founded the annual men’s event in 2010 after being inspired by the Mighty Men Conference 2009 said that after last year’s camp he sensed God saying that it was time to expand the Manne Kamp.
‘Through prayer and petition I got a message that we needed to invite a guest speaker and Johnny Louw’s name came up. I called him and without any hesitation he agreed to come,” said Naude.
He said he and his committee decided that in order to grow they needed to leave their traditional campsite at Van Stadens River Mouth and to find a bigger venue where they could make as much noise as they liked without disturbing other campers.
He said when they visited Highbrae Camp and Climb at the foot of the Lady Slipper mountain to the west of PE they knew they had found their new site for pursuing their vision of providing local men with a place to gather and to minister to one another.
With the new move comes increasing logistics costs and because they did not want to ask people for donations they decided to raise camp funds through hosting a Mannekamp Golf Day at Humewood Golf Course on Friday, August 30. The golf outing is also an opportunity for men to get together and to invite friends who will also hopefully attend the Mannekamp. Information about the golf day and booking details are available online or by calling David at 083 260 0932 or Franki 082 901 8655.
