Something extraordinary happened in South Africa this weekend, which seems worth mentioning for foreign readers. News stands this morning announced (presumably correctly) that one-million people met for a prayer meeting yesterday in our central city of Bloemfontein. South Africa has less than a fifth of the population of the USA. The farmer who led the event said: “Today we are witnessing history. ... This
gathering is a prayer meeting, it is not a gospel concert. It is not
even an evangelistic outreach, it is a prayer meeting.” OBSERVATION: The background is political crisis. Thanks to GoodThingsGuy for the photo.
