Men of Promise

The traffic jams lasted more than four hours on the way to the Mighty Men's Conference 2008, yet no-one became angry or impatient

According to the Guinness Book of Records, this was the largest tent in the world

When this post appears I'll be away. I’m in Kwa-Zulu Natal staying with Debbie and my grandchildren while my two sons and friends attend the Mighty Men’s Conference in Greytown.

This conference is a Christian Rally for men only and it's is the 5th time it’s being held. Last year Debbie and I stayed in a Guest House in Greytown and attended the Family service on the Sunday.

30,000 men were expected so a Mammoth tent, which could seat 20,000 people, was erected. 60,000 men arrived! Well - known South African evangelist, Angus Buchan is the preacher and the rally is held on his farm.

This year 200,000 men are expected from all over South Africa, from neighbouring countries and overseas. All services will be held in the open air. Men come from all over to meet God in a special way. Men, who already walk with God, bring friends and relatives to meet their wonderful God. The testimonies of changed lives and healed relationships (especially in marriages and families) abound.

I will be back after the weekend to post about this year’s MMC09.
