On the Sunday after arriving back in Australia I had the joy of ministering to a very alive congregation at the LiveCity Church in Redbank Plains QLD. They see people come to the Lord almost every Sunday, and it was no different this Sunday, where I taught them how to lead their friends and colleagues to Christ. In that service 3 people came to Lord.
It was again a great privilege to minister to the wonderful Salvation Church in Pymble, Sydney, where the worship was out- standing. This noble congregation responded so well to the theme of “Recover & Rise Up from Bad Beginnings to Impact Others, and maybe Save the Nation”. This is a congregation of experienced and very professional people who take the commission to reach people around them very seriously.
In mid-February I flew to Western Australia to minister to the courageous people of the New Life Family Church in Donnybrook. Here are Christians who are more than just survivors, they are conquerors, even in the light of losing their pastor a year ago. Since then that congregation has rallied together, and as individuals they’ve grown as they’ve pulled together. They’ve all been sharing with each other, answers to prayer and inspiration from the Scriptures they’ve received.
It’s great to minister to a compassionate church like this. They’re making a marvellous impact on the community.
On that Sunday night it was a joy to minister to my friends at the Abundant Life Centre in Busselton, who are great personal evangelists and concerned about equipping newcomers in discipleship and evangelism. It was a time of great joy as we shared together.
The following weekend found me in Toodyay NE of Perth, visiting friends who had arranged for me to minister in the Toodyay Baptist Church. It was a wonderful friendly service when many people for the first time learned how to lead someone to Christ. Afterwards I distributed a simple instruction entitled “How to lead someone to Christ”. A lady came up to me after the service and said, “My unchurched husband has been asking me for years if I could help him get saved. For the first time I’ve learned how to pray with him and lead him to Christ. I’m going home to do it now.” Others said, “Up till now this subject has been a mystery to us. Now we know how to witness effectively and lead people to Jesus.” Wow, what amazing results. Thank you for your effective prayers on our behalf and your partnership in the gospel.
