[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] The main activity of the Diocese for this month of August 2005 was the visit of Brother Francis Khoo and his team. This team, of the Covenant Vision Centre (CVC) of Singapore, arrived on Wednesday 3 August and left the country on Tuesday 9. The CVC campaign, which was under the responsibility of the St Paul Parish of Plaine Verte in Port Louis, has been a fruitful one.

Between 350 to 375 participants attended the conferences, which were held during the day at Immanuel Hall in Plaine Verte. The main topic was ‘Renewal and Revival’.

Among the subjects tackled, some caught our attention – fasting, the promise of the Holy Spirit or even the choices of a Christian in a consumer society. The speakers were brothers Francis Khoo, Henson Lim and Andrew Teo, Reverends Wilfred Png and Dr John Tay, Pastor Henry Tan and Sister Trisha Khoo.

Healing and deliverance sessions were held during the evenings. These sessions, which took place in the premises of St James Cathedral, in Port Louis, were crowded every evening.

Despite the cold weather of the month of August, not less than two thousand people gathered under the big tent on each session. The program for these evenings consisted of messages from Brother Francis Khoo, testimonies, songs and dances by the choir and dancers of St Paul Parish of Plaine Verte and healing and deliverance prayers.

During this campaign nine hundred persons signified their intention to consecrate their lives to Jesus.

Brother Francis Khoo also gave a conference for the Clergy and the Lay readers of the Diocese. This activity was held at the Diocesan Training Centre in Curepipe on Monday 8 August.
