What an amazing last few months we have had here in the “Mighty Nua” (Levin).
Our Missionary Priscilla Otukolo was promoted to Trainee Pastor, and is now under the watchful eye of faithful Pastor Crystal Tuhaka, in Manurewa, Auckland. Being part of a Biblical Ministry we understand being led of the Holy Ghost and going when He says go – staying when He says stay. Missionary Priscilla served Levin diligently and faithfully for Jesus, seeing the disciples here continue to lay their lives down and stick with Jesus, and watch more begin to lock into Biblical discipleship – What an awesome testimony to the fact that when you DO the Bible – it works! She will be an encouragement and blessing to the church in Manurewa.
New Trainee Missionaries
God always has His bases covered – when He moves someone on another (or two) is raised up to take the place. Here in Levin we’re excited to announce home-grown Missionaries Hamiora and Tamrah Wakefield have been promoted. As missionaries we are excited in what God is doing in our area, raising up more disciples and growing them up, taking more territory for the Kingdom, being a part of His biblical church is the only life to live, it is Amazing!
Two young men have finished our foundations course and have continued in discipleship. It is exciting to see the growth that has happened in such a short time and the fruit that is being produced because of biblical discipleship. Again - the BIBLE WORKS!! These guys are continuing to follow and love Jesus more and more as they lay down their lives and take up their crosses – to live is Christ, to die is gain!
Lots of visitors from Foxton have been coming along to our church meetings and have been loving the Biblical teaching and fellowship with on fire Christians.
Levin is full of souls that need Jesus and it has been our pleasure to get out there and sow some seed for Jesus. A young couple was met while out evangelising and started coming along to church, they prayed prayers of commitment to Christ and testified because of Jesus their relationship was better, bitterness and hatred towards a family member had gone and was replaced by their love of sitting together and reading the WORD. It’s Jesus – The Word - changing lives for the better!
One disciple testified since coming into Biblical discipleship he has learnt how to read the Bible properly and other disciples have testified how his reading ability has improved significantly. He has gone from only being able to read a few sentences a day to now reading 30 minutes or more a day. Jesus is Awesome!
Another disciple testifies: “I cannot count how many times I have thought, how am I going to pay for that? – and God provides, every single time. I had the warrant due, ran out of gas for our hot water and had no firewood. God is faithful. I was asked to do two extra days this week, I was given free firewood, and then I found $20 – God is Jehovah Jireh!”
We have been praying for a boy named Caleb who had a suspected broken arm and it turned out he only had a bad sprain! - Jesus is King!!
A disciple had pulled something in his wrist while using a chainsaw and could hardly use his hand anymore. “I had been asked if I wanted to learn how to climb up a pine-tree with spike-boots and harness, so I had arranged to go with this guy. The night before I was tree climbing I asked for prayer for my wrist. As I was being prayed for, it felt like a small ball was pushing upward inside my skin and the next day, I should have been in pain climbing trees, but I was sweet as! Miraculous healing in Jesus name”
God’s order, God’s plan, to take His truth to the uttermost parts of the earth is Biblical Discipleship and, it really does work! We learn to lay our own lives down for Jesus, and then learn to teach others to do the same. This is being a true Christian, a follower of Jesus and a lover of the Word.
We - LOVE IT!!
Be blessed in Jesus Mighty name!
