Not even Wednesday’s opening night that was heralded with misty clouds of rain and a ‘rushing mighty wind’ deterred the organisers – or the crowd of people that came to the tent.
With an expectation of an encounter with God, pastors have been meeting for nearly six months to organise the event in conjunction with Living Grace Lutheran Church who originally initiated the Jesus Tent.
The program included five nights of speaking and healing rallies, Kids Games after school for primary aged children and youth, as well as a very well-supported Ladies Morning Tea and a very successful ‘Shed Happens’ with a ‘big feed’ breakfast on Saturday morning.
“We are excited about what God has done this year,” said Steve Vonhoff, leader of a local youth group.
“We realised God would do great things at the Jesus Tent this year because amazing and miraculous things have been happening amongst our young people in recent months and this week was the icing on the cake.”
Inspirational, spirit-filled worship prior to each rally created an atmosphere of openness to God’s message that came through the variety of speakers including Sudanese Pastor Eloum Tiya on opening night.
