Where is God in Suffering?

Vel on Radio 



How can we stay close to God in everyday life? Over the coming month, a special Woman to Woman ‘Be Real’ episode will be released each week addressing topics such as suffering, sex and hearing the voice of God.

Does God still heal today?


From the ashes the Father brings life. From disappointment and helplessness, He brings comfort and hope. From Coma, meningitis, bleed on the brain & septicemia the Father releases healing. God has done it before and he can do it again. However, we need to trust in his everlasting love, goodness and mercy. 

‘Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…’

Songwriting Consultation – Ukraine 2019

Songwriting Consultation – Ukraine 2019

Songwriting Consultation - Ukraine 2019 Update

Steve & Velveta returned to Ukraine as part of their ongoing Mission to Eastern Europe. This trip, they were invited to facilitate a Songwriting Consultation, organised to teach specific writers how to write specific songs for a Gospel Choir. In October 2019 there will be a live recording with over 100 choir members, band and orchestra. 

So, songwriters from all over Ukraine were invited to take part in several workshops with Steve & Vel where they taught on how to write songs towards the album. Steve & Vel conducted several sessions where the delegates were placed in small groups and encouraged to write thematic songs.

The next stage will be the arduous task of setting up some form of Publishing as well as introducing CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International). Much prayer is needed toward this particular individual project.

Some of the delegates travelled over 13 hours one-way to be part of the Songwriting Consultation.

In May 2019, BMI will be returning to Ukraine to start working on the songs with a few of the singers.

During the conference, two musicians who were part of the conference made an impromptu performance. They will also be part of the Express Gospel Choir live recording in October.

Ukraine 2018 Update

Ukraine 2018 Update

Well, there we were on the eve of the concert – final rehearsal – choir, band and crew working incredibly hard. This is the first time for many singing in a gospel choir!
The atmosphere is electric – even before the actual final performance and worship, much has been accomplished. Haha – I hope I haven’t ‘worked’ these dear folks too hard ?
We have been so blessed by the multiple testimonies of what has taken place in peoples lives throughout the last few days. There have been illnesses, sore voices, but these troops have soldiered through. 
Yeah … very humbled to be here in Ukraine ??

So, ‘Gospel Express’ will go down in my historical journals as one of my most fulfilling events where dreams, visions and aspirations were realised. The essence of the young and old in one choir declaring the goodness of Jesus in Ukraine. 
I have made many more new friends and do indeed celebrate great memories that will be etched in my heart forever … so. until the next event

Bunmi Adekeye & Velveta Thompson on Premier Radio

Bunmi Adekeye & Velveta Thompson on Premier Radio

On the 15th of June, two days short of the anniversary of Velveta’s admission to hospital before her recovery from a coma, both her and Bunmi Adeyeke were on Premier Radio ‘Woman To Woman’. They were interviewed by Deanna Fletcher who was standing in for Maria Rodrigues. It was an amazing passionate interview where both ladies communicated their passion for prayer and the results of a united church coming together to pray for the sick as well as our nation. Bunmi relayed how speedily she and her team were able to gather over 100 people on Whatsapp in order to organise a ’round-the-clock’ prayer vigil for Velveta. The prayer group is known as ‘Watchtower‘ and continues to pray 24/7, each prayer warrior invited to choose a 30-minute prayer slot.

If you missed the interview, you can still listen to the broadcast which will be available until 15th July. Please click on the link to listen.
