SINGKAWANG, WEST KALIMANTAN (19-24 NOVEMBER 2018)
The mission conference and outreach programmes were so effective and fruitful. We saw how God moved mightily in every event that was planned. Apart from home visitations, hospital visitations, school evangelism, street evangelism, a prayer drive, evangelistic meeting and seminar, I want to highlight three events:
1. The move of God in family reconciliation and church pastors’ reconciliation.
God used one of our seven teams during the prayer drive to reconcile a son to his parent. The son was rejected by the parent because of his faith and since then they never communicated with each other. The Holy Spirit moved the son and brought the team to his home and shared the gospel. The outcome was that the son asked for forgiveness from the parent and they embraced each other and wept.
2. Healing of division among three Chinese churches.
The mother church split into three churches and the in-charge pastors were not in good terms and didn’t talk to each other. We sent out a letter to call all pastors to join our meeting and lunch one week before the mission conference. Canon Chak shared about the power of unity. During the meal, the three pastors began to talk to each other.
The local pastors were invited to join the mission conference. In one of the meetings, the Lord moved Canon Chak to invite the senior pastor to come to the pulpit to represent the Chinese churches in Singkawang to repent and asked God for forgiveness. The senior pastor came to the front and prayed for forgiveness.
3. God touched the Mayor of the City
The Lord moved Mayor Chai to accept our invitation to our opening service. After the service, she invited the team and local pastors to her residence the next day. We praise God that Canon Chak was given the opportunity to pray for her and her city. God is powerful!
To God Be the Glory!
