A Cape Town-born pastor, who now lives in America, is returning to Hanover Park to pray for and encourage the community, with a special service to be held on Sunday November 4.
In June last year, Pastor Mike Fabe, who hails from Lansdowne – and did much of his ministry in Hanover Park during the 1980s and 1990s – felt compelled to do something about the gang violence in the community.
He hopped on a plane in August and met with the local ministers’ fraternal and evangelist Nicky Coetzee to share his heart and plan for some meetings in a 5 000-seater white tent in Hanover Park Avenue.
The three partnered by fasting and praying, and by October 21, Mr Fabe kicked of with a free “Life Concert”, which also featured local Hanover Park artists, Jonathan Rubain and Christian rapper, Swiff D.
“After a number of inspirational and evangelistic messages, the violence took a significant turnaround with fatalities and injuries declining. On Sunday, on the same location where the white tent was in Hanover Park Avenue, I am returning with prayer. I am a visionary and dreamer, and although people may be destitute, everyone has a dream or a desire. I invite everybody to write down their dream and bring it to the service. I would also like to encourage parents to bring their children to be prayed over, against the latest trend of child abduction,” Mr Fabe said.
The service on Sunday November 4, starts at 4pm, and everybody is welcome.
