REVIVAL in Keswick. July 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th the Evangelical Churches of Georgina worked together to put on this event for all people in the community. The invites were mailed out to the houses in the community. Many people heard the band’s music as they drove along Woodbine Ave.

For those who went to the tent meeting they appreciated the talent from around the community. Local churches from Georgina, from different church denominations worked hard to organize the event.

Many people enjoyed hearing four different bands, special music with soloists. Ten people shared their transforming and heartwarming, life stories. One life story, in particular, stands out in my mind. Speaker Shirley Brown, author of the book “Vanished”. Shirley stood in front of the crowd and told of how God brought her peace, hope and love while helping her through the many challenges and frustrations she experienced over the years after the devastating loss of her son. She said, they woke up one day to enjoy a day like any other, but on August 15, 1968, that day her twelve year old son Robbie Brown vanished from the face of the earth. With bravery and sincerity she shared how she lived the years that followed raising her other younger children. As she told her story, people listened while wiping the tears from their eyes. Her story encourages us to find that same kind of hope and peace for whatever we go through.

Another man, shared his gripping story of how, while being involved in a life of criminal activity was shot four times yet survived. He said, he did jail time because of that lifestyle. One day while in prison he learned about the love of Christ and gave his life to the Lord. Not long after, a miracle of change took place in his life. He was set free from jail and his life of crime. He now works in ministry helping others. The stories went on and on and the people of the community were touched and revival took place in the hearts of many who attended.

Evangelist Jim Cash from Virginia USA, gave a powerful message each night. During these tent meetings, there was a joyous buzz in the air and it was not from drugs or alcohol. It was the bonds of friendship, faith, hope and love between one another as people and yes the churches united in praise. Yea! It was more than a tent meeting. It was four days of revival in the hearts of people, putting aside differences and finding the common ground at the foot of the cross. For four days a message of Hope was loud and clear, to help the hurting, lost and broken. It was a time to express something wonderful in this world that people often forget exists.

The party tent was taken down. Similar to when any great event comes to an end, there is the dismantlement and the return to regular activities of life. The tent and equipment was dismantled and the farm field back to the dry dusty bowl it was before we started. However, people left empowered and revived to continue to share Hope, Faith and Love to the community of Georgina and around the world. Really, the party is alive in each one of us, to celebrate each day with one another in a Spirit of Jesus Christ.

God Bless,

Rebecca Robinson
