Sarawak Mission Trip – 20, 21th September

Update from FGAM Team on 22nd Sept 2010, Tuesday afternoon

Monday (20th September 2010). It’s been a really encouraging time for us all. Rev Wong Kim Kong, a high profile advocate for the evangelical churches in Malaysia, was the guest speaker for the Baptist Pastors meeting that gathered at the Sibu Diocesan Pastors Centre. Rev Wong spoke about the vital importance of the church in Sarawak and how the church can rise up to meet the challenges of our times. We were very happy as the talk was exactly in line with what motivated the FGAM team to come to Sarawak in the first place!  And amazingly, Rev Wong changed his message to this topic while bathing just before the meeting! Praise God!  The following day he returned to his scheduled topic, speaking about the challenges of leadership and in the afternoon we held a workshop to discuss the specific difficulties faced by the pastoral delegates from around Sarawak including Kapit, Song, Sarikei, Roban, Debak, Sriaman, Kuching and Sibu.

Julie Seow shared on Monday evening, the importance of leaving a Godly legacy for the children. She highlighted the spiritual snares that prevent us from releasing our children fully to the purposes of the God. Julie’s speaking was followed by ministry time, after which a number of people testified as to how God touched them. One lady shared of her family’s heart conditions which took both her mother and father’s lives prematurely. Just recently she was also diagnosed with the same disease as her father and was having difficulty in breathing. During prayer she was touched by God and felt she had been healed as her breathing had returned to normal.  One humble man publically confessed the sins of his family, asking for God’s forgiveness with tears. It would be great to have more time to minister to the people, if we have the opportunity to return.

On Tuesday morning (21st September), Raymond Seow spoke on the Gospel of the Kingdom from a Biblical perspective, as well as shared a testimony from his life experience. In the evening, we will be speaking at the Sibu Jaya Baptist Church, where we will have a gospel healing meeting. Tomorrow, we will head to two long houses for an overnight stay before flying back to Kuching late Friday evening.

Thank you for your interest and partnership in the Kingdom, through prayers for the Iban. Feel free to encourage the team by sending an SMS to +60138473083.
