Simon and I are on board an Air New guinea flight after thirteen days, 7 hours and 25 mins (near enough), of an extraordinary time in Papua New Guinea – the land of the expected unexpected. Our return road trip, started in Wewak travelling through Aitape, Payawa, Lumi, Yangkok, Yiliwombuk, Maprik, Yambiko. This circuit was just under 800 kilometres. Thousands of potholes; bridges without planks; rivers without bridges; mud slicks; landslides – all the result of a tropical rains that constantly devastate travelling. With dogs that runout; pikinini’s on the roads; abandoned......

Just arrived at Johannasburg Airport for a hearty breakfast. We left Melbourne at 6:00pm on Friday 19 August and arrived at Blantyre in Malawi around 1:00pm Saturday.

We arrived at Blantyre airport in Malawi and were greeted by Pastor Nelson and around 20 of......
Posted on Facebook … We write to report about Pastor Victor Samoilenko’s visit to Malawi. We had a wonderful time together where we held conferences for four days in Blantyre and Lilongwe. He managed to visit fourteen churches where people were baptized in water and in the holy spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. The distance covered in Malawi and Mozambique during this time exceeded 2000 KM. His visit reminded us of 1991 when Revival Centres Church had just begun and then it was his second visit which was in......
Eighteen years ago, a tidal wave destroyed Sissano Lagoon PNG and that memory has never faded for the people who call the lagoon their home. But in that time, the jungle has regrown and there is little evidence of the destruction caused by the gigantic waves that hit the region in July 1998. Pastors John Andrews and Darcy Ryan spent 3 days living in the jungle with the saints, re-walking the jungle tracks and boating around the lagoon and rivers that service the area. Our visit started in Wewak with a 5-hour......
The Sydney assembly had an exciting auction yesterday around 30 hampers containing all sorts of goodies, with the proceeds going to the relief fund for our Malawi brothers and sisters. People were very generous both in putting the hampers together and also bidding (sometimes with great intent!) on them. The contents including things such as food, chocolates (of course) tea or coffee packs, movie tickets, a beach themed hamper, lollies, jelly beans, items from New Zealand, dinner made at your place (or ours), supper for six, a hamper for the house meeting......
A few weeks ago funds were dispatched to our Church in Malawi. With the effects of El Nino, the country has been double hit by the effect of drought and famine. To offset the dire need in some areas, the mission fund moved quickly to help. Pastor Nelson and members of the Church are pictured below in the process of organising bags of maize to those most in need. The process is still underway and there is no doubt that lives will be saved! Thank you to the individuals and assemblies that......
The theme of the Camp was “God’s Great Week” in this fifth combined northern zones Christmas Camp at Opan River, Yankok Zone.

On the first day of camp, we thank our God for saving five people who got......
It is an amazing country from mountains to the sea. The landscape changes with every kilometer travelled, whereas the assemblies’ saints do not. You are greeted with joy and happiness from the brothers and sisters as if you are long-lost friends who have not been seen for ages. The fellowship in every Centre is one of bright singing, amazing testimonies to the saving power of the Lord and completing the meetings with inspiring ministry. This trip was a working trip as opposed to an evangelical one, like a rally or convention. Dealing with......
