Almost 600 military leaders from 100 countries worldwide attended the Global Conference in Cape Town, from 30th November to 6th December. The event is only held every 10 years and this is the first time the Association of Military Christian Fellowships (AMCF) has gathered for their International convention in Africa. Archbishop Henry Orombi of Uganda was the main conference speaker, presenting leadership lessons from Joshua. The essence of the AMCF Global Interaction’s Vision and Mission is that the nations of the world may be spiritually transformed and lives and societies changed through the ministry of military Christians.
Soldiers are called to be the shield of their nation and also to stewardship, to protect freedoms, the right to life and the sanctity of marriage. Seminars dealt with witnessing in hostile environments, marriage as the Lord intended, healing the invisible wounds of war, persecution, purity and holiness, healing the land, and going deeper with God’s Word. Some of the largest contingents at the AMCF Global Interaction were from South Korea and Brazil. Some historic enemies have been seen fellowshipping together and having pictures taken with one another, including Russians and Ukrainians, Republic of China and Red China, India and Pakistan, showing wonderful fellowship across the lines.
The small groups, seminars and meal times were vibrant with energetic discussions and exchange of contact details. Heart rendering testimonies were shared of God’s grace in some of the
most heart-breaking and broken situations.
