Ministry in England & Orphans in Ukraine ~ November 2019

2019-11-25T17:04:43+11:00November 25th, 2019|

On Sunday November 3rd I drove to Central London to minister to the Salvation Chinese Church in a combined service for Mandarin & Cantonese speaking believers at 12 noon at St Margaret Patten Anglican Church, near Tower Bridge, London. I’ve known many of these Chinese believers for two decades and have found them so diligent in their witness for Christ to the extent that they had planted a number of daughter churches in different areas of London. It’s been marvellous seeing them reach out to, and care for other national cultures in the multicultural City of London. Odessa, Ukraine [...]

In early October, the Friday night Fellowship Meeting at John & Linda Andrewski’s home in Mashpee, Cape Cod, was joined by the Yarmouth Ladies Bible Study Group, led by Pat Greene. Linda, Pat and these precious ladies had knitted many little baby blankets, scarves, beanies and little jackets for the orphans and brain-damaged babies of Odessa, Ukraine. They had brought these articles to the Home Meeting to be packed in a huge suitcase for me to take to Odessa in early November. The fellowship was very precious and the message on leaving a legacy for generations after ours was [...]

Update from Cologne

2018-11-19T10:05:08+11:00November 19th, 2018|

We trust that you are well and enjoying God's rich blessings at this time. I wanted to share with you some exciting news that has been happening amongst the Russian Jewish people in Cologne, Germany. You know that I was in Germany in September conducting seminars to equip the believers in Russian Church in Cologne where my Russian manager, Sasha, had taken over the oversight of the church. He found that the congregation was 95% Jewish – from Russia and Eastern Europe. He invited me to come and equip them in evangelism using the gifts of the Holy Spirit [...]

Sweet weekend in Ireland and final weekend of September in Deal, England

2018-10-17T12:09:45+11:00October 16th, 2018|

Arranged by an Irish Methodist minister & his wife (Clifford and Ruth Taylor) whom I met when he was pastoring the Methodist Church in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. I conducted two missions in that church to people of that needy city in 1983-84. It was great meeting up with Denis and Marie Dowling. Denis had been the All-Ireland President of the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship in the 1980s. From 1982 to 1987 I was so privileged to travel to Ireland from South Africa every 6 months to minister the gospel in Catholic schools and parishes across Ireland and Northern Ireland. The weekend [...]

Glorious meetings with Russian Jews in Cologne, Germany ~ September 2018

2018-10-17T12:03:32+11:00October 16th, 2018|

I had the blessing of our granddaughter Niamh accompany me to Cologne in mid-September where we had glorious meetings with these Russian Jews. On Friday and Saturday, the four sessions of teaching and equipping in Evangelism, in the power of the Holy Spirit to reach the unchurched, went exceptionally well. On Sunday afternoon we enjoyed a very sweet service with the Russian Jewish people. Pastors from three other churches were there too, who’d had their services in the morning. They have invited me to their churches on the next visit to Cologne. These people brought family  members   and   friends   to the meeting and [...]

Wonderful time of celebration with Chinese Churches of London ~ September 2018

2018-10-17T11:56:54+11:00October 16th, 2018|

The first Sunday in England, I had a wonderful time of celebration with the Mandarin  and Cantonese  speaking Chinese Churches of  London at their 30th Anniversary Thanksgiving Lunch to celebrate 3 decades of outreach and service to the needy people of this big city. They had successfully planted 4 churches which are growing in numbers and impact on the community. About 250 people filled the Hong Kong City Restaurant in New Cross Road, South East London, together with about 150 of the public who were eating in the place and couldn’t help but hear what we were sharing. 13 young people had [...]

Sweet Ministry in the UK

2018-05-02T10:13:23+10:00May 2nd, 2018|

It was a pleasure to minister once again to the Salvation for Chinese Church, in London. They have 2 services on a Sunday - a Mandarin service at 11 AM and a Cantonese service at 1:30 PM. Both are equally exciting with lively worship and wonderful attention to God's word. The emphasis that Sunday was to in- struct and commission people for the discipling and training of children for present and future ministry. The response was wonderful, and newcomers committed their lives to Jesus. I met the leaders of this community 25 years ago when they were starting off in ministry. [...]

Norway – March 2018

2018-05-02T09:23:22+10:00May 2nd, 2018|

Our ministry in Norway was immensely fruitful as a result of your faithful prayers., in both Trondheim and Molde (4 hour's drive south of Trondheim). The Russian and Norwegian speaking people were greatly encouraged by the word of God, and the challenge to be brighter and more effective witnesses for Christ. Niamh, our granddaughter, was a wonderful encour- agement to the young people, not only in the meetings but in personal interaction and fellowship. She was a great help to me as well. The weather was beautiful, with clear blue skies in spite of the icy temperatures (around -10C) [...]

Wonderful time of ministry ~ May 2017

2017-07-04T14:26:11+10:00July 4th, 2017|

United Kingdom I had an amazing Sunday in early May ministering at St Luke’s Lighthouse Anglican Church, in Hawkinge near Dover, Kent where the worship was beautiful. The first service was more traditional and saw many older people recommit their lives to Jesus. The second was a family service in which four people gave their lives to Jesus. USA From the UK I flew to Massachusetts to visit some dear older friends in Hingham Massachusetts – Ron and Terri Golding. I had a wonderful few days of fellowship before travel-ling to Cape Cod to share with a group of precious [...]
