Farmers and volunteers are pitching in to help with the mammoth task of preparing the “It’s Time” prayer venue and surrounds near Bloemfontein to cope with an anticipated million people at the event on Saturday April 22, report the organisers.
Nearly 10 00ha of land has been cut, raked and baled to prepare the event area and parking. Farmers from many kilometres away have lent tractors to help with the land preparation and baling.
New farm roads have been opened and widened to ease traffic flow. More than 8 000 litres of diesel has already been donated to, and used by the farmers in land preparation.
More than 5 000 volunteers will be directing and parking traffic. Businessmen have donated litres of fuel, while others have donated toilet paper, generators and many other resources. Almost 700 portable toilets have been provided along with teams and trucks to service them.
“We would like to encourage everyone to come camp. It is going to be a nation changing weekend!” says Shalom Ministires in a media update.
“Camping areas will be made available close to the meeting area – campers should come completely self- sufficient.
“An appeal is being made to all attendees that are able to camp to arrive from Thursday onwards, as roads will be unable to accommodate expected traffic on the day. Please follow our social media platforms (http://angusbuchan.co.za/its-time/ , https://www.facebook.com/UncleAngus ) for details. Remember to bring your own water, drinks and food.
“Many folk have paid out of their own pockets for banners to be made and erected them all over the country. God is doing this for our nation.
“All these details on travel routes, parking, buses, GPS co-ordinates, camping, and care for those who are elderly or disabled will be sent out early next week.
“Please keep our team who are working around the clock to prepare this special place for us to come together, in your prayers. We are so excited for what our Lord Jesus is going to do on the 22nd April in our beloved country,” says Shalom.
