After being away from Botswana for over two years, Dr Steve Mbua of Rhema Gospel Light Ministries, popularly known as a man mightily used by God in the areas of prophecy, miracles, signs and wonders, is back for a four-day power-packed event called Action conference. It starts today (Thursday) at the church premises in Selokwane ward, Tlokweng.

Dr Mbua arrived at Sir Seretse Khama airport yesterday (Wednesday 14 September) with his wife, Prophetess Lydienne Mbua and seven other American citizens. They were coming from Revival City in Walburg, Texas where they are currently developing the vision God has laid out.

Unveiling Revival City during an interview, Dr Mbua said it is a project that is going to cater for community service. “We are going to be building a revival centre, housing to accommodate guests, the less-privileged, ministers of the Gospel, missions office, Bible college, Christian media house, facilities for children, restaurants and many other exciting features for our guests attending our monthly programs at Revival City in Texas,” he stated.

Upon arrival, they were welcomed with ululations and shouts of joy from members of Rhema and the general public at Sir Seretse Khama Airport. Maswailathota Traditional Dance gave a sterling performance. “I’m happy to be back in Botswana. I’ve been looking forward to coming here.

Botswana will always be my home,” said Dr Mbua, adding that people should expect a powerful move of God at the conference.

The conference is themed ‘The gathering of sons and daughters,’ which the prophet describes as a heart-to-heart encounter with men and women that he has raised in the Lord throughout his ministry of over 20 years. “We have a passion to see people saved, healed and delivered and we are inviting members of the community to come and experience the grace and love of God,” he stated. Expected at the official opening ceremony this evening is a list of dignitaries from Botswana government among them the mayor of Gaborone His Worship Austin Abraham, Batlokwa Deputy Paramount Kgosi Motsholathebe Gaborone, Gaborone South Councillor Honourable Oarabile Motlaleng and former legislator Shirley Segokgo-Molosiwa.
