My reflections on South London Conference 2011

Posted by Pastor Harold Booysen on May 8, 2012 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (95)

 

Last years conference was very powerful. It was the best conference I've been to from all conferences. The atmosphere was electrifying. Surely there was a great outpouring of the Holy Ghost. The main speaker was Pastor Marty Carnegy.  Every message preached was timely. The local pastors all preached powerful. Every night it was fullhouse.

 

Conferences are very refreshing for us as pastors and our wives. Its always great to meet up with some old friends. The felowship with the pastoral couples everyday was a great highlite. Coming from Namibia and meeting with various pastors from the UK and rest of the world was also very powerful. I must commend the worship team for their exellent ministry as usual. Borther Dimitri and his team did a great job everynight.

The international (world evangelism) night on Thurday is always a highlight to everybody, not only do we normally wear taditional attire from various nations, but we look forward to the anouncements.

    

We all look forward to Wednesday every year because we have an iternational street outreach. Where we all go out and witness to people and share the glorious gospel of Jesus. We did street preaching and a street concert, many souls prayed to receive Jesus in their lives. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!

    

I am looking forward to the next conference. Keep pray for Pastor Peter Ajala and Sister Emine as they labor and  oversee the South London Conference centre and all the churches in UK, USA, Jamaica, Ghana and Namibia. 

Brother Danny & Sister Louise

Posted by Pastor Harold Booysen on April 20, 2012 at 8:10 AM Comments comments (0)

This post is about a very special couple from The Potter's House Church South London. If anybody wants to know a proper definition or desription of the word HOSPITALITY, you need to visit Broter Danny and Sister Louise,  their lives perfectly gives a practical description to hospitality. They are originaly from Jamaica, but have been living in England for many years. I met them during my first trip to England, on my way back from the Tucson conference in the USA in 2006. What's so outstanding about them is their love for people and their virtue of hospitality. The last two years I travelled to England, they left a very resounding impression in my life that I was stirred to write about them.

I had a chat with Brother Danny at last years conference, I remember how he was sharing with me his gratitude for the saving grace of Jesus and the forgiveness of sin. There is no price he can pay for the act Jesus has displayed by dying for our sins on the cross. The best he can do is to serve Jesus to the best of his ability. One thing him and his wife decided was to open their home to people and be a blessing to others, especially those that come from far, missionaries in foreign fields. Brother Danny and Louise have hosted many fellowships, people and even various pastors from our churches have been to their house. Sister louise can cook any Jamaican dish you can ever imagine. There is "plantine", "Aki", "rice and peas", you can name it. (I hope I spelled them correctly) One thing is for SURE; she CAN COOK. I have many fond memories about the UK and the friends over there, but one thing that will remain with me forever is their hospitality.

There is a lesson we can take from this, with regards to our churches. It matters what impression we give our visitors as they walk through our church door. We must see it as important to make people feel comfortable and welcomed. Demonstarte respect and make it very obvious that they are welcome. Introduce yourself, SMILE, make eye contact and give your guest a firm handshake. Make a favorable first impression.                                                        Remember: You will never have a second chance at a first impression. SO MAKE IT COUNT!!

 

I am looking forward to see them again very soon.

Dune 7 fellowship 2011

Posted by Pastor Harold Booysen on August 30, 2011 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (1)

During the easter weekend we combined with several churches and had a wonderful time of fellowship at the famous Dune 7 outside Walvis Bay. Dune 7 is one of the highest sand dunes in the world. Its very challenging to climb all the way to the top. On the picture above, you can see several of the over 100 people at the fellowship, that made it to the top of the dune.

Fellowships are always refreshing.

Evangelist Jamile Hurst Revival: 8-11 August 2010

Posted by Pastor Harold Booysen on August 25, 2010 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (2)

 

 

We had a powerful revival with Evangelist Jamile Hurst from Rotherhithe,UK.

This was an in season revival. The church was greatly encouraged and stirred.

Every message was dynamic and pastor Jamile had the church captivated throughout

with his good communication skills.

 

 

The highest attendance for the revival was 185, in total 91 people prayed for salvation,

and 14 filled with the Holy Ghost on the final night. We witnessed 29 instant miracles,

people got healed from back pain,chest pain and asthma.

There was a boy aged 3, who could not walk or hold with his hands. After being prayed for,

with the help of grandma could make a few steps. By the final night the boy could hold my

finger with one hand and he stood on his feet. God strengthened his spine.

 

 

On Sunday night pastor Jamile prayed for finances and jobs, the same night at 21h00 a

brother in the church got a job, on Monday another sister,then Tuesday another brother.

God has really showed His grace to our congregation during this revival.

 

Please keep us in your prayers as we take Swakopmund for Jesus. Our prayer is that we

get most of these converts established in the church.

 

 

I want to thank pastor Peter Ajala for the investment made into our congregation and also

pastor Set-son and our mother church in Windhoek for their continued support and prayers.

 

 

Water Baptism 26 June 2010

Posted by Pastor Harold Booysen on June 29, 2010 at 4:57 AM Comments comments (0)

 

We baptised 17 disciples on the 26 of June. It was a time of great excitement. We gathered and sang songs. The saints were testifying boldly. Few people people gathered and listened to the testimonies, during this time our guys went out and preached to them. We prayed with two white young girls during the baptism ceremony. We give God glory!!!

All these people who were baptised are faithfully coming to church. This was our third baptism since we opened 18 months ago.

We will take Swakopmund for Jesus.

Impact team to Otjiwarongo - 13 March 2010: Victory Report

Posted by Pastor Harold Booysen on March 16, 2010 at 5:07 AM Comments comments (0)

 

 

We had a tremendous time in Otjiwarongo!!!

This was our first impact team. It was a blessing and a privillege to labor with our sister church. Not only did we have fellowship with one another, but we saw God using the lives of ordinary people to touch and save the lost. Both our desciples and Otjiwarongo disciples were greatly encouraged and stirred for evangelism and to lay down their lives for the great cause. New converts saw the bigger picture of evangelism and came back with renewed vision and a heart to serve God in the local church.

We street preached in the morning, other groups who were handing out flyers for the evening concert also joined us later. we saw people stopping and form groups to listen to our testimonies. We prayed with people as they were eager to receive Christ in their lives.

The evening concert was captivating and full of God's anointing. Our drama team perfomed convicting drama and others ministered evangelistic songs. There were many visitors for the concert, 110 in attendance of which there were also many backsliders present.

After preaching I made an alter call and 44 people responded. Pastor Rehabeam was blessed to see many mature men and women come out and pray for salvation. I prayed for people to be filled with the Holy Spirit and 31 people were filled instantly, both new converts and backsliders altogether.

The next morning more than half of the people who prayed came to the church service, they had 96 people in attendance. Many came back again for the evening service.

We are in awe of what God has done.

Keep pray for Otjiwarongo that these fruits will remain, and also for our church here in Swakopmund.

God bless!!!:)

Pastor Osei-Bobie revival report

Posted by Pastor Harold Booysen on March 16, 2010 at 4:26 AM Comments comments (1)

 

We had a very powerful revival with Evangelist Yaw Osei-Bobie from Walthomstaw, England. The messages preached were timely and have greatly encouraged the local disciples to serve God. One of the messages pastor Yaw preached was "Sleeping with the enemy" This message challenged many to maintain their purity and integrity before God. We had a great time of fellowship with him.

We saw 55 people saved, 15 healed instantly and 13 filled with the Holy Spirit. The revival was well attended with average of 90 and highest of 103 on Sunday morning. Pastor Yaw also prayed for jobs. As he was casting out fear and rejection, people were instantly healed of sinisitus, back pain, short legs growing out infront of the congregation. We are seeing fruits from the revival as people who got saved are still coming.

We thank God for what He has done in our church during this revival.
