Suriname celebrates 33rd year of the Surinamese Revolution

 

On Sunday 24th of February the Embassy of the Republic of Suriname celebrated the 33rd year of the Surinamese Revolution.  On the 25th of February 1980 16 young soldiers took over the political power in the country after failing to negotiate with the former leadership and with full support of the majority of the Surinamese people.
The Revolution took place under the leadership of Desiré Delano Bouterse, by that time the Head of the Surinamese Army. He resisted and survived many years of contra coups, assassination attempts and even poisoning scenarios.
After many years of struggle and internal opposition the leader of the Revolution built up the largest multi-ethnical party in the history of the country and after 30 years he became the unanimously elected President of the Republic of Suriname in 2010.

This event was intended to Pray and thank God Almighty for the abundance of natural resources with which He has endowed the country, for the survival of all the coups and assassination attacks and the fundamental steps H.E. the President is taking in bringing the country forward, nationally and internationally. It was also the intention to pray for the strength and wisdom of the people, the Government and H.E. Desiré Delano Bouterse, for the years to come.
The service was preceded by actions of praise and worship to the Lord by religious leaders and  parishioners, followed by a brief documentary film entitled: “Suriname, The World at your Feet”.
 
After this the Pastor Luke van Weren, the passionate and highly inspiring driving religious force in the Perfecting Church International who hosted this event, introduced the Ambassador, Prof. Dr. Wilfried Roseval.

The Ambassador  expressed his gratitude to the leaders of the perfecting Church International for enabling this celebration and thereafter depicted briefly the fundamental  meanings and impacts of the Surinamese Revolution in the past years and from an actual point of view.  He made clear that there is ample reason to thank God Almighty for His endowments, to praise his Son who has taught us how to overcome bad times and how to survive negative forces during the Revolution.  At the end of his speech the Ambassador congratulated the Pastor on his birthday.

Pastor Drielinger followed with a passionate and heart to heart preach and prayer. He begged for Gods mercy, blessing, wisdom for the Country, the people, the Government and the president of Suriname. He strongly supported the view that we should be world centred and not only country centred and that the wealth of Suriname should also benefit other countries in the world like South Africa.
