Call for unity sparks biggest crowd in South African history

The Culture

South Africa recently witnessed the largest gathering of Christians in the nation’s history when close to two million believers gathered at a farm to hold a national prayer service themed “It’s Time.”

Some 1.7 million people registered online to attend the historic event that was held outside Bloemfontein on April 22. Thousands more arrived on that day, with the multi-racial crowd spreading to more than a kilometer, Assist News Service reported.

The gathering was led by popular evangelist Angus Buchan, author of the book “Faith Like Potatoes,” who called on Christians to come together and pray for their country amid the spiritual and socio-political challenges it is facing, according to IOL.

“History is in the making today,” Buchan addressed the crowd gathered on the farm owned by former Springbok rugby player Ollie le Roux.

“This meeting is not about black or white, males or females, young or old. But this meeting is all about good and evil,” he pointed out.

Buchan exhorted the believers to ask God to bring justice, peace and hope to South Africa, saying they can achieve all these through prayers.
