26th edition of Soweto Marathon 42km that took place on Sunday 03 Nov 2019,review by Siphiwe Billy Sigudla

I really enjoyed it! First the race was flat followed by a down hill then and up hill then going through the historic Vilakazi street where the struggle icon former South African President Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu resided in the township. Lots of entertainment – brass bands/samba bands/metal even the people of Soweto where out in numbers to offer support to the runners !! Such a well organized event to Enjoy!

The @SekgobelaLebo Umusa National Tour Bloemfontein Version Concert Report

I attended the Umusa National Tour Bloemfontein Version at the Empowerment Ministries International Auditorium, 10 Rhodes Avenue Oranjesig Bloemfontein, Free State. on Tuesday 24th of September 2019.

The anointed concert started at 15:00pm to the enjoyment of the huge audience that had been waiting for this amazing gospel music extravaganza. The Umusa National Tour concerts always offer magnificent praise and worship platform for everyone and the audience in this concert was expectant to derive such praise and or more to which this time around it included healing ministry by minister Lebo Sekgobela.

It was impressive to hear pieces composed by Lebo Sekgobela and the new gospel group worshippers unleashed which formed under her new artist search worshippers unleashed.

I cannot imagine combining something as complex as Hymns and worship same powerful hymns and current and praise songs, much less actually performing it, so this aspect of the concert was particularly awe-inspiring. The concert turned into a service as minister Lebo Sekgobelas was led by the holy spirit to deliver prophetic words to a few concert attendants which lead to a healing ministry after he requested those who were in need of prayers to come forward and she ministered to them as the holy spirit had covered the whole Empowerment Ministries International Auditorium at this point.

The main performance was by Minister Lebo Sekgobela and the worshippers unleashed which performed few songs that they are busy recording in studio for their much anticipated debut album.

Members of worshippers unleashed are Norma Ntatiso, Neo Tshabalala, Nompumelelo Mtsweni and Nonhlanhla Matlenga.

Minister Lebo Sekgobela opened the concert at 3:00 PM and gave the stage to worshippers unleashed who worshipped to later give way to Minister Lebo to continue to worshipping her combination of various songs from her current Album Hymns sand Worship and also from her previous albums and the hit song Lion Of Juda took centre stage as it is an anointed number until 10:00 PM. Minister Lebo performed songs from all of her records randomly.

Allow me to share a few posts from social media:

This was another of many tours dubbed Umusa National Tour since the project inception in 2016 which I managed to follow it closely documenting it’s progress in a form of reviews as part of the last show recently being: Umusa National Tour, was held on Friday, the 5th July 2019,  in Secunda at Graceland Secunda. I am waiting in great anticipation for Minister Lebo Sekgobela to announced the date of the concert. I know few dates of the shows that Minister Lebo will be part of the lineup that is a total different set up altogether as Umusa National Tour project it is all her event more like one womanshow. I remember last year 2018 one session of her ministry tours In Witbank dubbed Emalahleni Total praise Minister Lebo Sekgobela had included other artists which it was fine but that meant I did not get to receive all the time focusing on her anointed ministry as the time tends to be too short to focus to other artists.

A Sanlam Cape Town Marathon 42.2 km Race Review going along with Eskom Customer survey which I felt compelled to write after I felt proud after spectators rooted for Eskom as a brand when I passed by since I represented Eskom Athletics club

I normally summarize the experience of every race I attend from arriving at the location to pulling out of the lot. I have a good report regarding this particular race since I was running Under Eskom Athletics Club better known to fans as Eskom Gijimas,

I so wish this IAAF accredited Gold Marathon can achieve the Platinum status.

I was over whelmed by how highly the fans praised Eskom as I was wearing an Eskom Athletics club running kit. I am an employee of Eskom under National Operation Section and National Control Department which fall under System Operator business unit under Transmission division

The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon 42.2 km Race was held at Cape Town Start: Beach Road, corner of Granger Bay and Beach Road, Green Point, Cape Town

Finish: Vlei Road, Cape Town Stadium precinct, Green Point

Cut off time – Duration is 6 hours 30 minutes

On date: Sunday, 15th Sep 2019
06:40:00

My Start line picture with fellow @eskomgijima Members Zola and Siviwe

Qualifying race for 2020 Old Mutual Two Oceans, Comrades Ultra-Marathons and several IAAF accredited marathons around the world

It was a good race I am glad I attended the race. I received a good feedback regarding Eskom as a brand as they kept on saying many good things about it from both fellow competitors and spectators who kept on shouting Eskom keep on moving especially after my 25 km run,I even forgot about the time ,reduced my pace & relaxed and greeted with a Sanlam hand shaker that I received from one elderly woman the well wishers. It gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

I feel good to be an Eskomite ,I will include my race time then share all important or more exclusive tweets rather that shares the overall experience of the event

The marathon was well organised and I find it easy to fit in even the organizers are friendly let me share few of the social media presentation from the event:

My Time and thanks my review ends here the rest is Twitter experience from all the people in general.

In conclusion let me share this :

The Graceland Arena, and all the lights except the stage lights were dimmed. One performer talked briefly to the audience before a piece, but it was only to give background information for that piece. Aside from this, the lights got placed on towards the end of the show.

The Rhema Men’s Camp 2019 Nothing can separate us from Crazy Love of God

Ever since the days of camp meetings, Christians have thrived on intense periods of Bible teaching, worship, and prayer.Conferences aren’t just for pastors or church leaders, either. There are Christian conferences for moms, dads, women, men, Sunday School teachers, families, new Christians, old Christians, and medium Christians. Basically, there’s a Christian conference for anyone who is interested in deepening their relationship with Christ.

The same grace that Rahab experienced is now available to you

Many first-time Bible readers are surprised to learn that the New Testament begins with a genealogy (Matthew 1:1-16), Jesus’ family tree. Those same readers are even more surprised when Rahab shows up on the list.

Most of us know about her. She is almost always mentioned by in the Bible as “Rahab the harlot.” But that’s not all. Rahab was also a Canaanite-who were the hated enemies of Israel. Her most exemplary deed was telling a lie. Think about that. A Harlot, a Canaanite and a liar. You wouldn’t think she would have much chance of making the list, but there she is.

You can read about Rahab in Joshua 2 and Joshua 6….

It’s a great story with many lessons, but we mustn’t miss the point that Rahab was a harlot. That was her “trade.” The men hid there because people would be accustomed to seeing strangers come and go at all hours of the night. We also can’t deny the fact that Rahab told a bald-faced lie. Is there anything good we can say about her? Yes! She was a woman of faith. You don’t have to take my word for it. Hebrews 11:31 says, “By faith Rahab …” She was a believer!

Many people are intimidated by Jesus Christ. They hook him up with a lot of religious paraphernalia-big sanctuaries, stained glass, beautiful choir, pipe organs, formal prayers, and all the rest. When they look at the trappings, it’s all very intimidating to them. To many in the world today, Jesus seems too good to be true.

This genealogy is in the Bible to let us know that he had a background a lot like yours and mine. He called himself “the friend of sinners,” and he said he didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. He said, “The Son of man has come to seek and to save that which is lost.” (Luke 19:10)

The same grace that Rahab experienced is now available to you. I invite you in Jesus’ name to come and be forgiven. He’s already made the first move. The next step is up to you.

@sekgobelalebo at Emalahleni Total Praise review by @billysigudla

The first ever annual Emalahleni Total Praise was a successful event with the following line-up: Neyi Zimu, Omega Khunou, Thina Zungu, Pondoza Psalms, Heart of Worship, Nompumelelo Mtsweni and Mthokozisi Masangi.

In attendace was Brigadier Delisiwe Motha, the station Commander of Vosman SAPS. She said she couldn’t wait to be blessed by anointed Lebo Sekgobela

Heart of Worship opened the Total Praise event, followed by Nompumelelo Mtsweni and so forth. 

The Total Praise event was an anointed event, I for one came to the event to get a clearer picture of what I saw from the Umusa Dvd recording in Rhema bible church, Randburg, to South Africa State Theatre, Pretoria.

After I attended The first ever annual Emalahleni Total Praise I come with a conclusion there is a new gospel generation of anointing that Lebo Sekgobela is preaching . Among other things that I experienced, Lebo  gives children the stage to perform the Lion of Judah for the fans and audiences give offering to which Lebo gives it to the Children performing . 

Total praise is a gospel art absolute musical combining talents of our South African top artists Neyi Zimu, Omega Khunou, Thina Zungu, Pondoza Psalms, Heart of Worship, Nompumelelo Mtsweni and Mthokozisi Masangi, the harmony of this project is just unbelievable. 

Allow me to take you through the performance through series of pictures.

The evening had different level of sacred moments for everyone. Each and every event attendee had a unique experiences Judging by the different expressions I saw as I was focused on capturing social media Pictures of the event as I was updating my Twitter handle @billysigudla, I can boldly say both gospel fans and artists experienced a certain level of supernatural power that was present in the Ridge auditorium. The auditorium was filled with the Holy spirit was filled .

Hey the Power of the Holy Spirit was too much.
