We were pleased to host over 550 men and women from Betel, their families and guests for an incredible day of thanksgiving and joy as Betel of Britain celebrated 15 years in the UK.
Many honoured guests attended the day, amongst them the Lord Mayor and Mayoress of Birmingham, Sir Peter Vardy, Elliott Tepper – the founder of Betel International, and many others whose support Betel has appreciated and cherished over the last 15 years. We were also pleased to host a team of around 20 of the current pastors from Betel in Spain, many of whom were among the initial residents of the Betel program there up to 25 years ago.
Many men and women from the various Betel residences in the UK were able to share the incredible transformation in their lives, and give God the glory from bringing them from addiction and homelessness into a new life of freedom and joy. In fact the testimonies could easily have continued well into the night, such was the spirit of gratitude and joy!
The team from Betel catered for over 1000 meals on the day to provide lunch and dinner for every person attending, which included many families and children of Betel men and women, each with their own story of reconciliation and hope.
We wish to thank everybody that has supported Betel of Britain over the last 15 years, and look forward to coming together again in the future to celebrate further milestones and many more radically changed lives!
