Taking place two weeks after Pentecost Sunday, there was a feeling of Pentecost throughout the weekend. Not only were four languages heard in all the meetings (Dutch, Czech, Slovak and English), but the Holy Spirit clearly moved among the congregation. With 14 new lieutenants (four from Slovakia, five from the Czech Republic and five from The Netherlands) on the platform, Territorial Commander Commissioner Hans van Vliet gave a passionate challenge for people to consider the call of Christ. The mercy seat was lined several times as people of all ages responded and knelt in prayer and dedication.
All four of the new officers were featured in the film about Slovakia that was produced last year by IHQ Communications. The film can be seen at sar.my/skfilm.
