There will be great celebration on the farm Mooi Uitsig outside Jeffreys Bay on Saturday as a giant crane raises the 14m steel Cross of Hope just two weeks before the Mighty Men Conference begins.
Everyone is welcome to come and watch the huge cross as it lifts off the ground to stretch high into the skies.
Robbie Hift, Mighty Men team member, explains: “A great crowd of volunteers has helped to prepare the farm on which to host the monumental Mighty Men weekend. We expect some 15 000 people to come over the weekend of March 8 to 10.
“On a hill overlooking the valley, we have taken almost a year to erect a magnificent 14m high, steel Cross of Hope. Recently, we took it down in order to clad the sides with white chromodex to make it more visible. Also, we have some of the best solar lighting equipment in the world to make the cross shine at night.
“You may ask yourself the question: “Are these people now worshipping a cross?” No, not at all. The cross is a symbol of what Jesus did for us in order to reconcile us with God our Father. The cross reminds us that the enemy has been defeated because it is empty, and that Jesus rose from the dead and will return to gather His church. He is the one that we worship!”
On Friday March 1, the week before the Mighty Men Conference begins in Jeffreys Bay, there will be a quite a large gathering of people coming from all walks of life to the Newton Hall in Jeffreys Bay from 6pm to 8pm for a surprise-filled evening of powerful prayer, worship and healing. Everyone is welcome. Rich and poor, old and young, healthy and sick, believers and non-believers. It will also be a good opportunity for you to bring someone you know who is going through a tough time….
Eugene Genis, committee member of the Mighty Men Conference explains: “This will be a good opportunity to seek the Lord and all the good things He has in store for your life, your family and your business. We are going to call on the name of the Lord and trust Him for His miracle-workingg power. The Newton Hall is a good common-ground venue to meet because it is accessible to everyone, no matter which church they belong to, and especially for those people who don’t attend any church at present.
”We want to see the name of Jesus lifted high so that He can heal the wounded, bring hope to the hopeless, redirect the lost and encourage those who are weary. Why don’t you also bring someone you know who is going through a tough time?”
So, please mark the date down on your calendar. Friday 1 March 6pm to 8pm. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
