My life, on reflection, has been primarily dedicated to helping people; I find people very interesting in so many ways. I am attracted to cheeky people who love life and enjoy a good laugh. My wife (married for 44 years) also has the disposition of making people happy – that’s right, when I say “on reflection”, I mean it! I am 65 years old! As a teenager, my mum had a desire to know God. I thought this was commendable, so long as it required no effort from me, and supported her......
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......
We just arrived back from the latest trip to Malawi. There were 10 of us from all across Australia that went; the group was headed by John and Gilbert Nayna. For most of the trip we had 9 Malawians traveling with us: Pastor Nelson (Head Pastor in Malawi), Pastor Eric, Pastor Dickson, Pastor David (new and first Pastor in Zimbabwe). As youth leaders and interpreters, we had Francis, Innocent, Albert, Ruth and Christina, who are all youth leaders in Blantyre and are involved in the choir. The team we travelled with were......
Yesterday we had an outreach at the Amaup Market in West Maprik. The villagers, market customers, passengers and drivers gathered to watch. They all enjoyed the fellowship with us afterwards. The following day we celebrated the opening of the Walauta House Meeting. At the opening some people from the outreach the day before were baptised. Amen!...
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......
We had our first ever public outreach in Mombasa, Kenya today. The Pastors from the four assemblies were asked to work together and plan this outreach as the first of many to come in Kenya. I am very happy to report that they came together and did a wonderful job considering they had not ever done anything like this before. We spent the morning walking around Bombululu in Mombasa witnessing to people and inviting people along. During the open air outreach, we created quite an interest and one person came back saying......
