EAST ZIMBABWE CONFERENCE CAMP MEETING 2017
1st September 2017
Watershed Camp Meeting ran from 13-19 August and from the first day of camp meeting until the end it was evident that God was present. It was a spiritually enriching experience where the campers were able to have a personal encounter with God. The theme of the camp meeting was 'Reach the World: Live with Hope'. More than 650 people were able to attend our camp meeting.
The camp meeting had a total of 6 visiting pastors who spoke to different groups. Pastors Fungai Murinda and Felix Sinala spoke to the children while Pastors Patrick Herbert, John Mavesere, Kethelo Mazibuko and Oetla Simankane spoke to the youth and adults. The sermons were all presented in a very unique and uplifting manner.
There were several singing groups that were present for the camp meeting including a guest group called Radiance. Dr and Mrs Herbert demonstrated team ministry; Mrs Herbert sang songs alongside her husband's powerful preaching that helped convict hearts and lead people to decisions for Christ.
The highlight of the camp meeting was the Sabbath service, when Dr Herbert called for people to make decisions for Christ and a total of 20 people responded in accepting Jesus. Later that afternoon 18 people were baptised.
We glorify God for the work that He has done at this unique camp meeting and for His presence which was evident in those who led out and who received the Word.
