40 Years Ago – The Grahamstown Evangelistic Mission
40 Years ago, I organised one of the largest Evangelistic crusades to ever be held in a military base. This extraordinary event, the Grahamstown Evangelistic Mission grew out of the daily Bible study and Prayer group that I ran in the 6th South African Infantry Battalion. The events that led to this major event, were a series of incredible answers to prayer. The results continue to have ripple effects throughout mission fields worldwide. What was involved in the Grahamstown Evangelistic Mission? How did it come about? What were the obstacles that needed to be overcome? Who was invited as guest speakers and musicians for this event? What preparation needed to be done? What follow up was planned? What was the cost of this event? In what way did the Grahamstown Evangelistic Mission lead to the founding of Frontline Fellowship and its ongoing mission? What can we learn from this event? Is it possible for such Evangelistic events to be organised today?
“Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage - with great patience and careful instruction.”
