Vryheid community walks for Jesus

A JVS Towing vehicle carried a cross as the procession followed close behind through town.

Last week Saturday morning saw a group of faithful followers take part in the highly anticipated Walk for Jesus at the Klipkerk Plein.

Starting the day at 6am, 500 balloons were filled with helium and gazebos, sound systems and food stalls were set up for the event. The crowd started gathering from 8am while listening to gospel songs and singing along.

The Walk for Jesus event took place at the Klipkerk Plein.

“We started to walk at 9:30am to proclaim Jesus as King of Kings and taking our faith out of our hearts and putting it on our sleeves,” writes Dirk Koekemoer, who was instrumental in orchestrating the event.

“The day came to an end by letting all 500 helium filled balloons into the air and singing No Longer a Slave of Fear, but a Child of God. We believe that each and every Bible verse inside the balloons will reach a person in need.”

The Walk for Jesus procession made their way through Vryheid to proclaim their faith.

Three guest speakers attended the event. Pastor Abshai, Morné Venter and Dirk Koekemoer delivered the powerful messages to those who attended the Walk for Jesus and the same question asked in the Bible was asked again: “Who do you want to set free, Jesus or Barabas?”

In this context, Jesus representing your salvation and the sin represented by Barabas. Everybody replied:

“We want Jesus to be set free…”

Dirk Koekemoer would like to thank everybody who came to participate and supported the stands, everyone who opened their hearts and wallets to make this event possible.

“I would also like to inform all that the Walk for Jesus will take place again the first week in September 2018. Please save this date.”
