We have felt God push us even harder in being a light to this dark place and we have been hitting the streets more often to witness fearlessly for Jesus. Many young disciples have been coming out of being shy and have been boldly preaching at Manurewa station, and loving it! A couple of weeks ago we took the guitar out and worshipped Jesus in the rain and many people came up to receive Gospel tracts. We have had some make decisions for Jesus on the streets and then join at us at church on Sunday. Last Sunday morning we had three ladies and one man all make decisions for Jesus Christ after meeting Gospel Force soldiers on the streets. The three ladies claim to have NEVER heard the Gospel until they were confronted by two AHKM disciples at the bus-stop – here is a testimony from Crystal (an AHKM disciple):
‘Ray and I met two young ladies at the bus-stop in Southmall. After preaching the Gospel to them (for almost an hour) we saw genuine interest and conviction in their hearts. We asked if either of them had any pain or sickness in their bodies. One was fine but the other lady said she had a painful back so we asked if we could pray for her and told her she would be healed straight away. We also expressed it would not take long! She stood and we laid hands on her back and took authority over the pain. Immediately we asked her how it felt and she said there was still a bit there so we prayed again. Then she said it had COMPLETELY GONE and she couldn’t stop shaking!’
Two of the ladies have since come to Bible Study and Church and have been profusely thanking the disciples for taking the time to go out and tell them about JESUS!! How cool is that? How would they have heard unless someone had gone out….? Let’s all take evangelism to a new level for Jesus – the Harvest is ripe!
Another disciple was going through a hard time and so decided he would go evangelise during the week. He got to pray for a man on crutches who had pain in his leg and when he prayed for him the man said he felt warmth go through his leg and felt much better. He also met a lady who came to church that Sunday and re-dedicated her life to Jesus. The lady testified that just before she met the disciple she had cried out to God for help and was amazed how quickly He answered. She then brought her niece to the Sunday night service and they both made fresh decisions for Christ and were blessed by the accurate prophetic words. This lady also enjoyed fellowship with AHKM disciples last weekend and testified how she has been reading her Bible instead of drinking alcohol. Please pray for us as we start a Bible Study Group for these new believers this week and pray they are quickly strengthened in their walk with Christ.
On a different note, we were also blessed to have Sara, a disciple from Miracle Christian Centre Maroochydore, come visit us earlier this month (See Video). We had some awesome fellowship together and she ministered powerfully at our night service. The disciples testified it was inspiring to rub shoulders with such a like-minded, Jesus-crazy disciple from another country! It certainly is encouraging to know that Jesus Army is GLOBAL and as we are all faithful in our own areas we are making a BIG difference in the light of eternity.
May you also be set alight with more zeal for Jesus and to win souls for His glory! If you are not a disciple I encourage you to seek God for a Biblical church that will faithfully grow you up and release you into your call. There is no higher calling in life than to do service for the King. Jesus is EVERYTHING!
God Bless, from Rev Lin & Manurewa
