The series of meetings began in earnest on 17th February, with villagers from the neighbouring communities attending.
Various prizes were handed out to visitors who brought friends on a nightly basis, a talent parade held every Tuesday night ensured that visitors played an integral part in the meetings.
A baptismal service for new members was held on the morning of Saturday 17th March 2018 at Rawacou, those members were officially welcomed to there respective churches on Saturday afternoon during a special ceremony.
Kerr told News784 on Saturday Afternoon that the community of Diamond is marred with a number of shootings and stabbings and this campaign was their way of reaching out to villagers, thus pointing them to a new way of living.
“ We saw it fit to present Jesus to the community, no pressure to join any religion, in the end, a number of persons decide to gave their lives to Christ”.
The minister told News784 they would have been able to spark interest in four couples towards marriage, and further told News784 that out of the 33 persons which were baptised on Saturday the youngest was 9 years old.
