The Moriel North of England Conference 2019 is like the Scotland and Ireland conferences; a smaller event than our main one in Swanwick - but no less blessed. These regional events allow for a degree off fellowship and interaction with the speakers less possible in the larger event.
Pastor Yossi Ovadoia from Israel joined Jacob Prasch in presenting teaching and reports ion the conference theme of 'The Body of Messiah in Israel in The Last Days'., It w§as a time of blessing and edification that honoured Jesus and help equip believers supportive of Israel how to understand, relate to, and pray for the congregations - Jewish & Arab in Israel. Too much of what believers are told concerning Israel comes from the mostly English speaking Ex-Patriot organizations in Israel, and not enough from the indigenous Hebrew, Arabic, and Russian speaking Body of Messiah. We are grateful to The Lord and top Yossi for the teaching and
first hand information he brought top us.
We also thank Amos Farrell and Genesis Christian Radio TV for filming the event. Within the first several hours of the first session being posted on Moriel TV we had over 4,000 views alone. These numbers grew steadily (and are still growing), in addition to those who watched on ROKU TV and Vimeo. The number of views on GCR TV is likewise climbing. Numbers are not everything and certainly not the definitive barometer of blessing, but the instant popularity is indeed an encouragement from The Lord.
The Live Streaming of the conference by Genesis Christian Radio TV was deliberately not advertised. The Saturday & Sunday morning sessions in the UK were in the Middle of the night in the USA & Canada and the evening sessions in the UK were the middle of the night in Australia, Singapore & The Far East (it is only webcasts from the USA that reach the 95,000 viewers we had at a conference in the USA). Despite the Live Steam not being advertised however, live stream views varied fluctuating from 20 viewers at times to nearly 1,000 at other times , with blessing reports by viewers coming from as far away as California to the West and New Zealand to The East. Because the Live Stream was unadvertised, the viewership figures were nothing in contrast to the Youtube and ROKU figures, but those who did find us were edified and blessed. We are considering pre-advertising for future conference events.
Peter & Beryl Hunter organised the conference and did a session promoting the Lech Lecha ministry they represent in Israel of which Yossi Ovadia is a board member. One of the advantages to regional conferences is 20%-30% lower costs than those possible at larger venues. Peter & Beryl were able to keep attendance at £120 which is an excellently low cost for a three day residential conference event complete with accommodation, meals and amenities and parking with reasonably good standards. A±though designed to be smaller than the main conference, as a regional conference bookings wereexacyly 25% higher than last year , which was also a very blessed event. Next year , Lord willing, we will again have a guest speaker from Israel too be announced soon. Plans and speakers or the main 2019 Swanwick conference in November will be announced soon, and may be have advertised Live Streaming.
We are so Grateful to The Lord for His Blessing at The Northern Conference and we look forward not only to Swanwick but the Scottish Conference in Gartmore which will be filmed by Radio Azimuth where Jacob Prasch will be joined by Pastor Charles Douglas, and Ireland, also to be announced in mid Spring.
The Moriel Canada Conference in Vancouver will also soon be announced as will the USA conference organised by Sandy Simpson in North Carolina in the Bible Belt in October after Jacob returns from Australia & New Zealand.. Among invited speakers are tentatively Tony Pearce in the UK and John Haller in Canada.
