Hammanskraal is a small town roughly 45 minutes from Pretoria, virtually on the border with the North West Province. The area of Dertig sits deeply in the town of Haamanskraal and the roads are so rough that you cannot find most of the places on the GPS. Regardless of the difficulties of finding the area a lot of souls came to our crusade field and every evening of everyday we saw men and women flooding in from all sides hungry for God. Our four day crusade was impactful from the beginning to the end. There were a lot challenges in terms of spiritual attacks, our team had to pray day and night against the principalities and territorial spirits that tried to stop the crusade from going on, but the bible says when the devil comes like a flood God rises the standard. We experienced the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the crusade field, people experienced healing, salvation, there was deliverance and restoration. A total number of 8000 decision cards have been handed over to local pastors for follow-up which are the results of both the crusade and the crusade outreaches. We thank God for the unity the crusade brought in Hammanskraal between the community and the churches around the area and also the unity between the local pastors, all the pastors are now planning on working collectively to bring revival and change in the community.
The crusade in Hamaanskraal was held for four days. It was glorious to see people giving their lives to Jesus. As the scripture in the book of Luke 15:7 says; there is more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
Every evening, the altar was flooded with men and women eager to surrender their lives to Jesus. The sick were healed, people were delivered, miracles manifested and all this resulted to numerous testimonies.
Laying hands on the sick
MARIAH (66) had terrible abdominal pains. ‘’ I had terrible pains in my womb,’’ she expressed, ‘’ I struggled to walk up straight for a couple of months now and I get easily tired just by taking a few steps. As we were praying, I felt the Power of the Holy Spirit all over my body. And now the pain is gone, I am completely healed and I can walk up straight without getting easily tired. All Glory be to God, I thank God for healing me!’’
NANCY (38) had severe pains around her waist for over a year and she could not bend, she expressed, ‘’ I am healed, I am healed, I thank God for His goodness as she kept bending over and over with gladness.
Johnas (22) had an injury on his knee during a game of soccer, he could not bend his knee anymore which made it hard for him to play soccer. ‘’I thought my soccer career was over, I even gave up on going to soccer practice because I couldn’t run, I can now bend my knee without an ounce of pain, thank you Jesus for healing me he expressed!’’
PHINDILE (24) use to be a worshiper in her church, one day as she was singing her voice started breaking but she thought it was nothing serious but to her surprise it went on for a very long time. It has been 8 months now and she still can’t sing. ‘’but tonight, she expressed , during prayer, I prayed my lungs out and I felt this strong presence upon me, I began to rejoice with a song and my voice was stronger than before and louder than before. I can sing again, thank you Jesus’’
There was a remarkable hunger for the things of God in Dertig especially when the crowed was prayed for to be baptised in the Holy Spirit. The atmosphere, the emotions from people, the sound they were making when His power overwhelmed each and every one of them, it was a night to never be forgotten in Hammanskraal Dertig. People encountered God in ways they have never encountered Him before, there was healing and restoration. After such an experience, Hammanskraal will never be the same again.
