Nations 2 Nations Battambang, Cambodia May 2012

Events, N2N, N2N Asia 1 Comment

While crossing the Thailand/Cambodia border with 34 others from the Muizenberg Africa2Asia DTS, I became so aware that this may be more than just another gathering but something significant with 22 of our group coming from Africa. On the other side of the border we met the DTSs from Hanoi, Vietnam and Bangkok, all making their way to the Nations 2 Nations gathering in Battambang. Many have traveled for days to be part of this historic event.

Nations 2 Nations started in the morning of May 7th 2012with 250 people gathered from more than 25 nations worshipping Jesus. The humble structure where we gathered is affectionatley called the Cage and that morning it turned into a beautiful tabernacle where God met with us. In the evening we were welcomed by the Pastors of the city. The leading Pastor, who is 74 years old, shared how historic it was to have so many nations in the city to call forth God’s destiny over Cambodia. It was so moving to see someone of that stature and influence open up the city for us. For many in the audience they had never seen so many nations gathered and for most of the Cambodians it was the first time they ever saw Africans!

Wilson Goeda from South Africa shared his journey of forgiveness, reconcilliation and hope and it was met with conviction where God started to open up our eyes to see other ethnic groups and nations in God’s light instead of our prejudices. God moved in a powerful way to bring these nations together and many ended up asking for forgiveness and washing each others feet. They embraced their identity, dignity and destiny. At the beginning of the week many of our Khmer friends confessed their struggle with inferiority and lack of value. By the end of the week they were sharing boldly and made their contribution as they heard that God had confined His glory in them as a people and that we needed their voice. It was indeed the nations releasing the nation of Cambodia. One of the highlights was when we heard from Radi, one of the leaders on the base sharing about the Word of God as the key to transform society and Channoeun sharing with us in Khmer his journey of commitment that led him to be a missionary. We ended the morning with the Cambodians praying for us from the other nations to see God’s destiny released in us.

It was wonderful to hear the testimonies from the teams who went out in the afternoons and praying for people to get healed and see others coming to know Christ. We finished the last day of the Celebration by taking up an offereing for the land the base is in process of purchasing to build the Universtiy of the Nations Campus. There was rejoicing at the end when almost 20 000 US dollars came in and it was matched by a donor who is beleiving in this dream. In the afternoon we had the privilege of walking on the land and envision thousands of Cambodians and those from the surrounding countries trained to bring transformation in their societies. One of the main organizers of the event wrote; “Thank you for impacting our lives for eternity and no doubt causing us to change history for the kingdom of God.” We came to give to this nation but we left having received more than what we ever could give. God is raising up a new wave of missionaries from this nation…..from the nations to the nations!

N2N Geneva: When the nations celebrate things happen …

Events, N2N No Comments

Nyon/Geneva, November 3-4, 2011 – It al started as a vision to gather the believers from Nyon and Geneva for 2 evenings of Celebration to celebrate our unity in diversity. Nations2Nations became the platform to see this happen where people from more than 40 nations gathered, old and young, Swiss and International, rich and poor worshipping Jesus together. We felt we were experiencing a little bit of heaven on earth.The passion for Jesus and unity also overflowed in young people getting out in the streets for prayer walks and evangelism.

Many doors were opened for Benny Prasad, one of our leaders from Nations2Nations, who broke the world record for having travelled to all the nations in the shortest amount of time, just over 7 years. During the week he had concerts with his unique guitar that includes a harp and two bongos, ministering to diplomats and people working for the international organizations in Geneva. Read more

History Made at Nations2Nations South Africa

Events, N2N No Comments

Originally, it was an invitation to speak to DTS students that would bring YWAM Burtigny base leader Edwin Fillies from Switzerland back to his hometown in South Africa last week.  But what began as a simple teaching engagement God quickly grew into a Nations 2 Nations (N2N) Conference that will leave a lasting imprint on the social and political spheres of South Africa.  Stories of God’s miraculous powers of restoration and healing are still pouring out from participants, but one event in particular will forever change the lives of 4.5 million South Africans.  History was made Friday night as leaders from the two clashing factions of the indigenous Khoi people met, for the first time ever, to unite for peace, hope, and their future at N2N Mossel Bay.
