PHUTHADITJHABA. – The rainy and cold weather of Saturday, 30 April never stopped the gospel followers from praising the Lord at the inaugural 2016 King’s Loves Gospel Praise event which was held at the Phuthaditjhaba Stadium in Qwaqwa.

A breath-taking celebration was organised by SJM Holdings in partnership with Samuel Raboteng Ministries (House of Glory Global Church) and Kamohelong Luxury Accommodation.

Well-known artists like Teboho Moloi, Benjamin Dube, Ntokozo Mbambo, Sello Malete and Israel Mosehle, to name just a few, kept the audience warm and on their feet.

Blankets and heavy coats were the only comfort to keep the heat in.

Pastor Samuel Raboteng, the founder of the church, said he was happy with the attendance, even though the weather conditions were not favourable.

He said it was the first ever event and added that they were hoping to make it an annual one.

“Actually, we would have loved to have this event at least twice a year. But we are going to go back and check if that can be done,” he said.

He said the gospel festival was aimed at uniting people through gospel. “Yes, one other aim was to raise funds towards the building of the church, but unity came on top.

“I wish to see unity in the people of God. You should remember that we praise one God regardless of going to different churches,” he said.

Raboteng said he hoped to see the walls of the new church at least next year. “I believe that my God will help us to realise that dream,” said an optimistic Raboteng.
