New Zealand Elim National Conference 2005
Pastor John was one of the speakers for the New Zealand Elim National Conference 2005 held by Elim Christian Centre in Auckland. Pastors & leaders from over 50 Elim churches as well international visitors attended the conference.
Pastor John’s ministry was very well-received. Many lives were encouraged and touched by the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Words of prophecy and encouragement were given to some pastors.
When the second service on Sunday morning has ended, a couple from China requested prayer for their family and also for their first child who would be due in 2 weeks time. After the prayer, Pastor Lay Geok was led to ask if they have any help to look after the mother & child, especially in the first month. The wife shared that her mother has just arrived over the week from China and that she would be helping them for 6 months. Pastor Lay Geok asked asked to pray for the mother on hearing that she was in church with them for the first time that morning. The couple explained that the mother was not born again yet. Pastor Lay Geok, however, asked to meet the mother. They called for the mother & Pastor Lay Geok shared the love of Jesus with her & she received Jesus as her Lord & Savior! Glory to God!
On Sunday evening, Pastor John spoke at a special outreach program at the Elim City Church. There was a wonderful presence of God many lives were touched. There were at least six people who gave their lives to Jesus for the first time. Glory to Jesus!
