The stage has been set. Thousands of tickets have been booked. Hundreds of volunteers have been mobilised. 

We’re two days away from the opening night of Celebration of Hope, and the National Stadium, which will host five rallies this weekend, is bustling with action. 

More than 200 churches and organisations are uniting for the biggest evangelistic event since the Billy Graham Crusade in 1978.

What are we expecting? 

We’re expecting that the more than 200,000 visitors who are coming will personally encounter the Living Hope. 

We’re expecting revival in our land. 

“LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.” Habbakuk 3:2 

Here’s a look at what’s happening on the ground.

What can you do? Besides inviting your family and friends, you can pray. Remember all those whose are helping and hard at work.
