Jesus Tent a place of crazy love at Easterfest

The theme of Easterfest 2014 was crazy love and the Jesus Tent was one place where this love could be experienced.

In 2013, there were close to 8,000 children in care in Queensland alone.

One woman came into the tent with blurry vision but found that her eyesight improved so that she could read the screen. Another person finally surrendered to God, trusted him again for love and found salvation. A young boy discovered supernatural gold dust on his hands.

An older man was sent to the tent by his mate. After prayer, he could see again out of the corner of his eyes and his vision was less blurry. His leg was also much better. However, he had no time for further prayer because he needed to go back to the pub. Yet, God had touched him – a surprising discovery which he expressed in colourful language.

There are many more fantastic testimonies but – amazingly – the Jesus Tent is a simple ministry that anyone can do. There is worship, some preaching and much prayer.

It operates as an initiative of the Living Grace Lutheran Church and works in partnership with other churches and ministries as an expression of church unity in Toowoomba.
