Apostle Mokoena on healing crusade

APOSTLE Simon Mokoena will take the gospel to the people in the same way that Christ's apostles turned out to be fishers of men.

APOSTLE Simon Mokoena will take the gospel to the people in the same way that Christ's apostles turned out to be fishers of men.

Mokoena, pictured, will host an all-male conference at Vista University in Tshwane from this afternoon until Sunday.

He will then hold Operation Hlasela on November 15, 21 and 22 at the Victoria Mxenge Hall in Durban. On December 5 Mokoena will ascend the mountain in QwaQwa, Free State, and on December 31 the Night of Miracles takes place at Bloemfontein's Seisa Ramabodu Stadium.

"I am embarking on these crusades to help heal the land and bring the peace that seems to be eluding us as the children of God. We don't have a magic wand to stop all these maladies.

"We believe it takes one person, then a community and eventually a nation to change the course of events" he says, explaining that while God gives, He also expects people not to sit on their talents.

As a man of action he is not only widely known in the Free State, where he comes from, but all over the country and in neighbouring states. He runs gospel programmes on SABC 2, e.tv and Botswana TV.

"People are concerned about crime, poverty, drugs and teen delinquency," he says. "All these things will be dealt with as long as adults take action, set an example and pray hard. I believe in miracles. That's what the church delivers."

The apostle is a Rhema Church graduate but has deviated slightly by preaching in SeSotho.

"It's the only way you can get the message across. The fact that the congregation has embraced this means we are on the right path," he says.

Aside from the many branches that he is establishing all over the country, Mokoena still found time to release an album titled Lefika La Ka.

"Everybody is invited to this weekend and other follow-up engagements," he says.
