Chatsworth Crusade
Sunday Morning - April 2nd, 2000

Dr Paul Lutchman, President of both "Jesus for Africa" and "Christian Revival Centre," recently held
a week long Gospel Crusade and Outreach at the Chatsworth Stadium.
It was with much surprise and totally unexpected that I received an invitation to preach
at this Crusade. Not only was I invited to preach at the Crusade but I was to be the preacher
at the Main Sunday Morning Service - the "highlight" service of the Crusade.

It was a distinct honour and a most humbling experience to "stand in the gap"
before almost 5 000 people and to proclaim the Word of GOD !
The largest crowd of people that I have yet ministered to.

Below are photographs of the large Tent in which the Crusade was held.

Above is a partial view of the 500 seater Prayer Tent which was erected next to the
Big Tent.

The next three photographs show part of the crowd that attended the Sunday Morning Service.
Seating was provided for 5 000 people and it was estimated that the
Sunday Morning Attendance was somewhere between 4 500 and 5 000.

Above is a view of the Platform - yours truely may been seen at the extreme left.

In closing it must be added that:

Georgie and I spent many years working amongst the Hindu,
Indian community in Chatsworth, Durban, Kwa Zulu - Natal, proclaiming the Gospel.
My Missionary Ministry started in Chatsworth.
Chatsworth, the sprawling Indian Township outside of Durban
has the largest consecration of Hindus outside of India
- more then 1 million Hindus of Indian descendant live in Chatsworth.
Georgie’s late Father was a Missionary, working amongst the Hindu Community
in Chatsworth. I met Georgie for the first time at a Tent Campaign in Chatsworth.
Chatsworth will therefore always hold a special place in my heart.
In our hearts I think Georgie and I will always remain Missionaries
- I often tell my Missionary Pastor friends that I am the only real missionary amongst them
as they all preach in their mother tongue while I preach in Afrikaans
which is neither my home nor my mother language or tongue.
