Mission Georgia – Johan is all in for Mission Georgia. He sees the desperate need for the Lord in his Country of Georgia. He starts out with a broad discussion of his involvement with Mission Georgia.
“My name is Johan Labuschagne married to Marina and we live in the Republic of Georgia. We registered the healing rooms in Georgia known as “The Fathers House” in April 2010. The Fathers House is open 2 days a week, and the people come from as far as 300km. We also use the internet through Skype & Face book to minister internationally to people in Italy, USA, Ireland, Turkey, Russia, South Africa and in Georgia. God continues to do miracles at the Healing Rooms & via internet; salvations, deliverance, counselling & healing’s.”
Mission Georgia needs encouragement and support. Labuschagne continues about how they support Mission Georgia.
“By invitation we come alongside village pastors to encourage them and assist within the village churches & with rural outreaches. We bring a fresh Word of God, evangelise, and pray for the sick, hand out reading spectacles, 2nd hand clothing & bibles in communities. Transport however poses a bit of a problem at times, as public transport is not always available to the remote places.”
Many children are getting reached through Mission Georgia.
“The majority of the street children we minister to are of Kurdish background and Muslim in their faith. They are often viewed as a nuisance to those who walk the streets because of their aggressive persistence in begging for money. Here we feed them, teach bible lessons, teach them to read & write, craft lessons & play games/sports with them.”
Large amounts of youth are converting because of Mission Georgia.
“We work in an Armenian village in Georgia with a preschool and youth and had a very successful youth camp where 40 children gave their heart to the Lord. The camp was held during September holidays for one week.”
Other youth ministries are being used through Mission Georgia.
“We work closely with other ministries including- Teen Challenge, Post Abortion, various interdenominational churches and YWAM. They refer people to us for counselling, healing, prayer & deliverance.”
Johan Labuschagne gave his life to the Lord for Mission Georgia.
“I gave my heart to the Lord when I was 16 years old during a youth camp. I spend most of my life in the military (27 years) half of it in operational service where all the questions started. My wife passed away and there were more questions. In April 2007 I got married to a Georgian lady and in September 2007 we returned to South Africa & became radically saved in May 2008 at a “Catch the Fire” convention held in Durbanville South Africa. The first 3 days I felt there must be more and was asking the Lord to touch and use me, well He did touch me and it felt like a heart attack when I open my eyes I was on the floor and a lot of people around me. This all happened during a worship session and my life and family changed.”
Johan has a strong Christian dream for Mission Georgia.
“Our Dream is to continue being a shining light for Jesus as on a hill, giving the Bread of Life to the hungry & bringing Living Water to the thirsty. Rising up New generation. Video clip about 4/14. The scholarship at CLI is a dream come true to equip me and better prepare me to teach the word. 2 Tim 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 1 Tim 3:2 Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach.”
Johan finishes by asking for prayer with Mission Georgia.
“My prayer requests are the following, That the Lord give us wisdom and favor with the church leaders to accept the 4/14 vision for children. That we wil have a 4 X 4 Vehicle for outreaches. A Better facility for street ministry as the house we use is not in good condition. Finally, support to have more youth camps in the villages (small towns) were we work in.”
Johan has completed the Christian Basics Certificate. He continues to pursue Mission Georgia and his education thanks to generous donors of Christian Leaders Institute.
