ITMI’s Charl van Wyk is organizing a pastor’s conference for 70 pastors in South Africa.
The Lord has led ITMI supporters to cover a little more than half the cost of the event for South Africa pastors who have endured job losses and loss of income, government interference with their feeding of the hungry, led countless funerals to minister to the hurting, been arrested for not having “permits” and accusations from authorities that their churches are “super spreaders” of the virus.
Pastor Siniko, recipient of past help from Charl's supporters, uses his story about being shot at while in church to encourage others.
Charl observes that pastors are in need of rest, love, encouragement and support.
“Throughout this event, we aim to inspire, strengthen leadership skills, establish fresh Biblical perspectives for ministry, equip attendees with new tools and skills, pray for renewed passion and excitement, establish unity in the Body, spend time in prayer for our nation, provide encouragement and support, secure a sense of hope, and help with their overwhelming ministry needs!”
Charl is praying for a total of $5055 USD to fund this event.
