It was in the early 1980’s that I heard the gospel of salvation. I heard this message form a hitch hiker that my brother had given a lift to. His name was George Perry, and he was hiking with what looked like an expensive guitar judging from the case. At the time my life as I knew it was complete, with probably the best job I could ever want. I played with arguably the best music band and musicians in Central Africa. I played international squash representing my country of birth (Malawi)......
Just finished a three-day outreach conducted in the form of a seminar/ outreach here in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. The church is very new, and we only visited them for the first time 5 months ago. It was wonderful to see how it has continued faithfully holding to the message that was preached to them since that time. Pastor Mathew Muga organised the seminar for his people and invited other pastors and people from the neighbouring areas. There are around 18-20 people in the assembly (5 spirit filled adults and the rest......
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......
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......
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.......
The Mt Eliza Southern Assembly in Melbourne has recently opened an Information office in downtown Frankston. The artwork and signage for the shop has been organised by members of the assembly, with a small commercial coffee machine installed too. The shop is operated most days during the week by different people with the aim of sharing with the community what the Holy Spirit has to offer, the Church’s activities and a focus on families. The objective is to preach the gospel to any who show interest, giving leaflets to those who have......
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......
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......
