GOD TV to Air Prayer Rally for Reconciliation in South Africa

Angus Buchan 'New Beginning' LIVE from Rustenburg this weekend.
RUSTENBURG, South Africa, Oct. 17, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Following the deaths of 46 people, killed in labor-related violence in South Africa, Evangelist Angus Buchan will be speaking at a mass gathering on Saturday October 20th to bring reconciliation, restoration and revival to the troubled Marikana area.

Aptly named 'New Beginning' the prayer rally is being supported by pastors and churches from across the region and will draw large numbers of people from every community. This will include the miners who have been striking and grieving families who have lost loved ones. The theme of the event is 2 Chronicles 7:14, which promises that if God's people walk in humility and are prayerful, then He will respond by healing the nation.

GOD TV Co-founder and CEO, Rory Alec is travelling to South Africa to participate in the rally, which is being held in his hometown of Rustenburg, close to Marikana. He will host the LIVE broadcast, which will be beamed worldwide from the Olympia Park Stadium at 10am with a replay at 7pm (EST)

"I am pleased to return to Rustenburg for this far-reaching crusade," said Rory Alec, "We have a vision for living rooms to truly come alive as our viewers watch revival as it happens. 'New Beginning' is an extraordinary opportunity for us to see this take place as Angus Buchan's message of reconciliation and restoration is beamed worldwide on the GOD Channel."

The founder of Shalom Trust, Angus Buchan is an internationally acclaimed Christian leader and nation-builder, best known for the movies 'Faith Like Potatoes' and 'Ordinary People.' GOD TV has previously aired his 'Mighty Men' events with hundreds of thousands of people in attendance.

"The destiny of our nation depends upon us as believers," says Angus Buchan. "It doesn't depend on the politicians or on anyone else. We need to get back to God, humble ourselves and pray, turn from our wicked ways and God will heal our land."

'New Beginning' will start with the world famous Soweto Gospel Choir and include worship with the 3R Team and Joe Niemand. Prayers will be led by local pastors including Francois Burger of Loftpark who is organising the event; Ed Bilong, President of Vision Africa Changers and Bert Pretorius of 3C Church in Pretoria.

"Angus has touched our lives and it's a joy for us to broadcast 'New Beginning'!" said GOD TV's Director of Television Wendy Alec. Our hearts are with those who grieve, but we believe that what the enemy has meant for evil, God will turn to good. We're expecting many viewers to be reconciled to God, families to be restored and the Body of Christ to be stirred."
