AIM has been fully up and operational since March this year, and after leaving our 3 Auckland churches strong in the Word, Apostle Ryan & family have been able to spend time at AHKC churches Levin and Gisborne strengthening the disciples there.
During our time with AHKC Levin, we visited Victory Christian Church in Palmerston North after hearing about the great persecution they were suffering for their stand in the Gospel. We were so blessed to find them zealously preaching the Word of God, and striving to Biblically Disciple every soul under their care. We were honoured to donate $1000 towards their faithful evangelism efforts in Palmerston North, and were also led to launch a petition requesting Massey University and UCOL to immediately withdraw their trespass orders against their evangelism teams there (please see and sign http://www.citizengo.org/en/24347-please-immediately-withdraw-trespass-orders-you-have-against-9-members-victory-christian).
Following AIM's Levin/Gisborne visits, Apostle Ryan and family arrived at AHKM's latest church plant in Te Awamutu. Pastor Priscilla and Missionary Shavonne are breaking the ground mightily for the Gospel in this place and uprooting many demonic strongholds as they warfare in the spirit and through Biblical evangelism here. They are exposing the souls of Te Awamutu to the uncompromised Gospel, to Biblical Church and Discipleship. Pray for them, and for all our churches across the North Island, as they faithfully establish and advance the Kingdom of God in their areas!
On our evangelism front - we are very excited to have 2 Disciples from AHKC Te Awamutu, 1 from Gisborne and 1 from North Shore being vested up this month as active soldiers within our Gospel Force evangelism work. One man contacted the ministry this month saying that he had received our 'Diary of a dead man' Gospel tract and was brought to tears by the message it contained. He has since repented of his sin, declared faith in Christ, and begun attending our South Auckland church services. A lady from Levin also confessed faith in Christ after being visited and ministered to by the ministers of our church there.
The devil has been hitting back hard these last few months, with 5 close family members dying. Thankfully, at least 2 of these had the Gospel preached to them by a Disciple and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ before they crossed over to the other side! The Gospel was then able to be mightily preached to all those attending their funerals. Another close family member who has been told they have a very short time to live, was previously very hard towards the Gospel, but this past week has humbled themselves to receive God's salvation :D
Reverend Crystal from AHKC Manurewa has been working faithfully in the Gospel to oversee the monthly performance of the 'Everything Skit' (powerful Gospel depiction) along with boldly sharing the Gospel and testimonies of the power of Jesus Christ in human lives (Check our 'ahkm' YouTube channel for skit clips). We are also VERY excited to announce that Rev Crystal is also now overseeing our first ever NZ prison ministry team! Once a month Rev Crystal and her team will be heading into the Wiri womens prisons to run 2-4 church services, each an hour long - where they will be able to praise and worship God, pray, discuss the Bible, and faithfully preach the uncompromised Gospel! Please join us in praying for GREAT FAVOR from the Prison, Guards and Chaplain as we bring the Word of God to the souls in this dark place.
Our Manurewa and Otara churches will now join together every Saturday at 5pm for our official AHKC South Auckland service. Both churches will also join with our North Shore church for Sunday morning services.
Finally we are SO BLESSED to confirm that Apostle Dorian from Miracle Christian Center Australia and New Covenant Apostolic Fellowship will be joining us at our AHKM Annual Conference toward the end of this year (stay tuned for official dates).
Thank you SO much for all your love and prayers! We greatly appreciate your loyalty to the Word and bless you in His mighty Name as you seek to advance His Kingdom in your life!
Rev Ryan & Jacquelyn Paul
