The Holy Spirit Encounter 2013 saw about 200 attendees from Zambia, Congo, and Malawi. The speakers were Blake Lorenz and Tim Machtel from Florida, USA. The theme was about establishing altars of prayer. Tim's teaching on abiding in Jesus was a powerful sermon that was encouraging and very helpful for the church leaders amidst all that they experience. Blake's preaching motivated and encouraged everyone. Melanie Shelton, a woman from the USA with cerebral palsy also shared her testimony of how God has worked through her disability.
