New Zealand Baptisms

Saturday Outreach continues to bear much fruit as one more is baptized into the saving name of Jesus Christ. Esther joined us at the mall and stayed afterwards for when our musicians got together to do their practice, Lili took the opportunity to teach her a Bible study. Esther desired to be baptized immediately. It was a glorious scene as our Youth spent some time in repentance before she went into the waters. We rejoice with Esther on this great decision. Well done Youth... Keep the fires of revival burning!

During Sunday's Celebration Service we baptized two... Last night at the evening service, the Holy Spirit moved in a mighty way as the people heard three different preachers minister the Word of God. The altar service was full with lives being reminded of their Spiritual Inheritance.

Caleb, who has been coming for the services and had received the gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, decided to give his life to Christ and desired to be baptized.

Justine, who attended the POA service for the first time, also wanted to wash her sins away in Jesus name. There was much rejoicing, with testimonies and singing, as the two went into the waters. Glory Hallelujah....

Report from New Zealand

Greetings in the Matchless, Powerful Name Of Our King and LORD, Jesus Christ!

LOCAL GYM hears the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ.

Another member of my local gym is baptized into the name of Jesus Christ.... My time at the gym has borne much fruit.

Mc Claude, a chef, does his work out several times a week. We've had many conversations about the Bible and God.

On Thursday this week we talked about being obedient to the Word of God. The Holy Spirit was present and I told him that there was an urgency for him that we get together. He agreed and we sat down in a cafe and we had a Bible study. He received revelation immediately. Mc Claude gave his life to Jesus, repented and was baptized into the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.

He was filled with the Holy Spirit when he came out of the water and spoke in tongues! Praise God. Mc Claude testified that he 'knew what had happened to him was right'. Glory! Several members of this gym have come to Christ and have been baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit.

Churches here in Auckland are in our 26th day of the 40 day fasting and prayer for the Empowered Conference with Rev. Lee Stoneking (21 -23 Nov). The spirit of unity is bringing upon us a harvest. Chains are being broken over our cities and people are becoming even more receptive to the "voice of truth." Jesus said in Mat 17:21 ...this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

We need your continued prayer support for the work in Auckland, New Zealand. We thank you for all you do for His great cause.

To God be the Glory,

Pastor Marshall

Praise Reports and Prayer Requests from Africa

Liberia - Many thanks to God for sparing the life of Simeon Nyuah, son of Pastor Abraham W. Nyuah, who was bitten by a poisonous snake.

It happened on the closing night of a 14-day revival at the church pastored by Pastor Nyuah.

The church began praying and shared the request with the WNOP. We know that God touched Simeon and he is still alive.

Last month we requested prayer for God's intervention in the security situation in Liberia. Armed robbery had been at an alarming rate in the capital city (Monrovia). Many people, including one of our pastors were victimized. We praise the Lord that the situation is now better.

Botswana - The Ladies Conference resulted in an "Awesome Move" of God. We definitely went to another level. We had representatives from each church in Botswana. We thank God!

Let's continue to pray for them as they get settled and make the necessary adjustments to this new country. We know we will hear great praise reports in the months ahead.
