Thank you for visiting our ministry site. I am Pastor Robin Moonsamy, Senior Pastor of Gethsemane House Of Prayer.
My wife Violet is a missionary and together we have three children and three grandchildren. Our vision for the Lord is motivated by the "Great Commission" that Jesus commands in Matthew 28:19, 20."
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
The Church was formed in 1993 in the area of Canelands Verulam in Kwa-Zulu Natal South Africa. It was called Canelands Worship Centre and had worked with the community of Canelands which was nick named "Thunder Town", due to the town being infiltrated with gangsterism and drugs. Through these changing times the Church survived in that area for twelve years bringing many to the Salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the year 2005 the Church moved out of Canelands as God had directed us to the town of Temple Valley in Verulam, Kwa-Zulu Natal. The Church had turned a new leaf and began to strengthen herself in the mission field, in Africa especially in Mozambique.
In 2007 during Pastor Robin Moonsamy's Pilgrimage to Egypt and Israel, God had placed in his heart the name "Gethsemane" so the Church was renamed "Gethsemane House Of Prayer". The name relates to Jesus experience in the Garden of Gethsemane where the disciples could not tarry for one hour.
The Church programme consists of Prayer Meetings, Bible Studies, Men's and Ladies fellowship and the Junior Church. The Church over the years has trained and enquiped young Men and women through Bible Studies empowering in the Word Of God to become disciplined Leaders. The focus of the Church Is the Junior Church were currently there is one hundred kids being schooled and groomed for the future. Our vision is to Work with the children from the beginning and keep them Rooted in the Lord.
Continue to pray for us as a Church, pray for the different Ministry's that the Lord Jesus Christ will continue his Good Works through Gethsemane House Of Prayer and World Missions.
