Since 1979, Intercape bus services has made a difference in many South Africans’ lives by bringing people from all parts of the country together in a safe, dependable, and affordable manner. For decades we have been able to handle the influx of passengers during holiday seasons and bring loved ones together during Christmas, Easter, and other special times. We do this because we care about people; we care about every South African, regardless of race, age, sex, or religion, and we also care about our country. For this reason we will help bring thousands of people to Bloemfontein on 22 April to pray for the country with Angus Buchan.
This national day of prayer calls on people from every corner of South Africa to pray to save our country from violence, crime, despair, and all forms of evil that haunt our beautiful country. South Africans these days are experiencing fear the likes that haven’t been felt in many decades. People from all races are fearing the effects of racial tensions, the deteriorating economy, the government’s struggle to combat crime and poverty, and other feelings of hopelessness. “We are tired of people taking the law into their own hands. We are going to call upon the Lord to bring justice, peace and hope to our beloved South Africa,” said Angus Buchan.
While Intercape provides the same quality of service to people from all backgrounds, we as a company have strong Christian values, and therefore we believe that the deplorable state our country finds itself in can only be rectified by God. This country needs salvation, and we need it now. We don’t need it from ordinary people; we don’t need it from the government; we need it from the divine, from God himself – the God who has saved humanity countless times before.
This event, simply called “It’s Time”, is likely to draw more than 1 million people, so there is bound to be lots of traffic on the road. While we believe that God will hold his protective hand over people, there are still people on the road who drive dangerously, which is why we advise people to use a safe and reliable bus service like Intercape to travel to this event. Some may ask, “Why not just pray from home? Why spend money to go to Bloemfontein?” While God hears all our prayers, this event is a chance for everyone concerned about the future of our country to come together. Also, as Matthew 18:20 states, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” So, how about where 1 million are gathered in his name?
This event is no mere Mighty Men Conference that Angus Buchan is known for. This is an event that will go down in the annals of South African history. It is a chance for people from all walks of life to come together for a noble purpose; to save this country. As Angus Buchan stated, “I really believe this is the last chance that we will have in South Africa to bring normality back to this beloved nation.” To illustrate the magnitude of this event, he also stated, “I have never been so excited in my life.”
So far, 29 Intercape coaches have been booked solely for this event (24 in Cape Town; 1 in Upington; and 4 in Pretoria). The event will be held on a farm in Bloemfontein; the exact location will be announced shortly. People are expected to bring their own camping equipment (trailers and caravans will not be allowed on the event grounds and should be left at the camping grounds), own washing amenities and a portable/camping toilet (no ablution facilities will be available, except for the elderly and disabled), a black bag for refuse, water for drinking and washing, first-aid supplies, hiking equipment, and most importantly, a wholesome attitude and the will to make a change.
