The last few weeks have been very busy here in Worcester. Busy but good. And our base director, Stefaan, has announced he is leaving - of good cause. He says everything God called him to do in Worcester has been fulfilled and it is time to move on. The last thing to take place is REVIVAL. A revival in the style of Andrew Murray's, whose revival actually broke out here in Worcester, for those who are interested in church history.
During almost two years, preparations for something very special has been made: Impact World Tour (IWT). The IWT is a YWAM ministry using extreme sports, dance, music and professional stage production to reach out in a relavant way to this generation with the gospel. What impresses is the preparations and follow-up. An international coordinator has been here on-off for almost two years to work with the local churches: make them work together and train them to receive new people.
Already during the three first evenings 700 people received Jesus and had their names written down in order for individual contact persons to get in touch with them afterwards and see to it that they find a local church and are discipled. The DTS has been proud to be a little part of it, praying with people at the altar call and filling in forms with people's contacts.
The week before Easter the campaign still needed 300.000 rand (30.000 euros). IWT is a big campaign, but it also gave fruit. At least Stefaan is convinced that Revival has come to Breede Valley, where we live!
