Church: The Potters House Christian Fellowship
The 1st thing I realized being there was the people who were there. Ben Fowles was my roomie for the week during the conference and we had a great time together with a dude named Daniel Warren too. There's nothing people would like to talk about... But JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOR.
I have met numerous people with so many different backgrounds during my stay at Australia. One person has an Ex-MMA fighter in the PWP tournament in Australia, another was an Ex-drug addict, some were Ex-drug sellers and quite a number of them were Ex-Muslims, a sister in Christ was an Ex-traditional idol worshipper... AND all of us gathered together in this conference worshipping The One and Only True God together... surrendering ourselves to The Lord Jesus Christ, having the Holy Spirit as our witness... meeting ourselves with The Father in Heavens.
Every sermons by the leaders were life challenging to impart to us a vision and an equipment to the saints for growth and increase. From time to time, were would have ourselves having fellowship and discussions of The Word of God during lunch time fellowship and dinner time fellowship. Everything was done with godly love towards each other.
There was quite a big crowd during the conference. Awesome atmosphere.
Every night we would also listen reports about what's happening in other Churches in our fellowship around the world as well as within Australia. It lifted up spirits in encouragement and edification as we could see that God is at work saving the lost souls around the world. Being in God's Presence continuously and hearing the Word of Truth constantly also gives us a strengthening in heart and assurance that not only The Lord is with us... The Potter's House Christian Fellowship Church was the right place for me to be with. Planting myself here in this Church was a great deal I got from that one decision I made back at 2013... To Accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and my Savior.
I was sharing my testimony to a lovely sister in Christ
The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons.
Freely you have received, freely give.
-The Lord Jesus Christ-
The Book of Matthew Chapter 10, verse 7 & 8.
Looking back, it was a great experience for me as it thought me many things about life... as a Christian believer and also as a disciple of Christ. It's not about the religious activities one does just to have a "sunday-past-time" sort of stuff, but indeed everyone was engaged in a spiritual dimension where we heard sound teaching from The Word of God taken from the Bible... a balance message that ranges from surrendering to Christ Jesus our Lord, marriage, discipleship, evangelism, repentance of sins, consequences of sins, turning to God, having increase in one's life and also imparting the God given vision, anointing to the next generation.
As you would see from the pictures above, I also met many brothers and sisters in Christ. One of them was a Vietnamese lady that really has a heart and a thirst to have more of God in her life. In my time in Australia, I met some good brothers in Christ who has given themselves to Jesus and heard their testimonies this was very encouraging, as we we're edified through each other's life testimonies. A few other sisters who indeed has that spark and fire to talk about Jesus also was around to make it to an interesting fellowship group.
In our fellowship group there was a sister named Trang, she's lovely and very encouraging to our group as we hang out together often during the week and I also learned precious knowledge of Christ from her personal testimony on how Jesus has changed her life for the better. This made me realize something very important... The Lord Jesus Christ, in His obedience to God our Father... empowered by The Holy Spirit throughout His ministry here on earth... was a sacrificial act for all people from all nations... all different tongues... didn't matter how great your sins were... didn't matter how different you are from the others... We were all gathered together in that conference to worship The Savior Himself.
I thank God for I have met great people during the conference... people more noble than myself... Paki, M.J., R2, Taufa, Paul, Ruth, Junko, Joshin, Callum, Corban, Benjamin, Nathan, Rob, Tanya, Weina, Alma, Daniel, Ben, another Nathan, Jaafar, Eben, and many others... I cherish this experience in my heart and keep these people in my prayer and the Churches in our fellowship.
Upon landing to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia...
As I come back to Malaysia, the people I met were still fresh in my mind. I really missed hanging out with Christians who actually love talking about Jesus... We didn't talk about the movies at the cinema, we didn't talked about what's on television, we didn't talk about what's the famous worldly singer doing now... we talked about what Jesus Christ, King, Lord, Savior and Healer has done for us... How He single handed changed our lives... transforming us to be godly men and women... sons and daughters of God, The Father... filled with the Holy Spirit, saved by The Blood of Jesus Christ... Redeemed and saved... Assured and staying away from evil... THIS is the CHRISTIAN WAY... and I am blessed to be part of it.
My heart is for the lost souls in Malaysia... the souls marching into hell...
God, equip me for thy works... to declare the Gospel, The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, being a propitiation... taking what our sins deserve upon a cross... Resurrected and Raised unto the Right Hand of God...
Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come
-The Apostle Paul-
To You, our Living Savior. Amen.
