Mulanje, Malawi Visit

Today after lunch with these wonderful brothers, Pastors Nelson, Kelvin, Eric, Dick and Tex Banda along with Francis and Innocent. We drove out about two hours towards the Mulanje district near the Mozambique border. You could see Mozambique in the distance at the foot of the mountains from the church hall. We were blessed to be able to share a word of encouragement with them. After the meeting three people received the Holy Spirit which was a wonderful blessing to be present at the moment of their salvation. These beautiful people welcomed......

Nairobi, Kenya Visit

On the Sunday just passed I was privileged to attend a meeting in the new hall in Nairobi Kenya. A little more than two years ago Pastor Victor and I saw the beginning of this assembly when around 18 to 20 received the Holy Spirit. Now the church is around 70 to 80 persons strong. It never gets boring going over the fundamentals of the salvation doctrine and walking in the Spirit. It is inspiring to see very young people taking hold of the Gospel and doing something with it as their......

Newcastle Youth Outreach

With the coffee overflowing and banana bread by the bucket load, the “Say Something” outreach highlighted Newcastle as place to be over the long weekend. The weekend kicked off with great encouragement from Pastor Mark Wade: if we love God our desire is for everyone to have a relationship with God, as it is God’s will to have a relationship with His creation. In a refreshing format, workshops and group exercises were run on Saturday morning to discuss how to talk to others about our personal experience in receiving the Holy Spirit.......

Personal Story: Glenn

Having left home when I was 16 years old, I managed to get involved in just about everything that was not wholesome and sound and by the time I got to 18 I was a drug dealer and became ill as a result of my drug habits. This turned out to be life threatening. I was given at that time 3 months to live. I returned home to be cared for by my parents. Being the kind of people they were, they tried what they could to help me and took me......

Personal Story: Bronwyn

My parents introduced me to the truth about the gospel when I was a child.  I knew I had to repent, as I couldn’t achieve my own righteousness. The Lord gave me that same powerful proof described in Acts 2 in the Bible.  I asked Him for the Holy Spirit and knew without a doubt that He had answered when I miraculously spoke out in a fluent language that I had never learnt.  I’ll never forget that moment and tears of joy flowed as I felt an amazing peace and happiness. I......

Personal Story: Adriana

Growing up in a Catholic family I had always believed God was our Creator and we got taught to follow His commandments – but had no knowledge of what the Lord really wants from us. In 2010 we moved from Melbourne to Brisbane as a happy family, but not long after that my marriage of 20 years ended, leaving me with an uncertain future and the worries of raising two children as a single mother.  That same year, on Easter Sunday, my daughter and I went to a friend’s house and she......

Tania

From an early age, I was constantly interested is the things of God and the purpose of life. I had sought this understanding through religion and institutions, gaining a lot of philosophic knowledge along the way, still remaining hungry for a close relationship with our Maker. After meeting several people who told me their account of healing and overcoming some tough experiences whilst reaching out to God and receiving the Holy Spirit, I pursued in my heart to go after this on my own. At a time when I really needed God......
