HIGHLIGHTS OF RECENT MINISTRY TRIPS

Here are some of the comments from participants:

    • “I have been in full time pastoral ministry for nearly forty years but some of the most fulfilling experiences have been ministering to the persecuted church in Asia. Over the past five years I have been part of a small group of pastors invited to minister with Stand Asia in several South Asian countries where the Christian minority has experienced varying degrees of persecution.”
    • “These ministry trips are challenging, exciting and incredibly worthwhile. Jesus said, ‘Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together.'(Luke 6:38) On each trip, the church leaders we were able meet and minister to are so grateful to us for coming yet my experience has been that it is me who has been enriched and blessed.”
    • “Meeting pastors of the persecuted church both as a group and in one on one interaction I always find such a humbling experience. Some of these dear brothers and sisters in Christ have had their lives or families threatened because of their insistence on sharing the gospel. Most are poor with few resources yet they are rich in faith. Nonetheless the relentless pressure from hostile groups or governments takes its toll.”
    • “On my most recent trip we were running a three day seminar for about 25 pastors and their wives. During the first sessions it was easy to see that most were oppressed spiritually and physically tired. Battle weary would be a good description. Yet over the three days during the times of ministry the Holy Spirit met them in their need. I will never forget the last session. Many gave testimonies of what the Lord had done for them and how our time with them had so encouraged them. They found new hope and new strength to go back and face the battle. That last session ended with such an exuberant time of praise and dance. Faces that were heavy and down cast three days before were alight with joy and laughter.”
    • “If you have the opportunity to go on one of these ministry trips, go! Drop your schedules and other commitments. Go with an open mind and heart ready to be used by the Lord and you will be blessed by being a blessing. “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.” (Proverbs 3:27)”
    • “I did not know what to expect when I came for the meeting but soon realised that this was meant for me. The messages and fellowship healed my heart and body. Thank you for coming to encourage us.”
    • “I’m a Hindu convert and I’ve been married for 13 years. For the first time I realised that God ordains marriage and our prayers are hindered if we do not honour our spouses. This is an important lesson for me.”
    • “I’m a Muslim background believer and I’ve never taken my wife out for a seminar like this. The teaching from my family is that husbands need not respect their wives. We never prayed together as a family. I didn’t realize what marriage commitment meant until the workshop yesterday. After one of the sessions, my wife and I cried until 2am and prayed as a couple. Through the seminar, I have realised how to respect my wife and grow as a family in Christ. I was encouraged by your concern and care.”
