Testimonies from Malawi

'Trusting Me you will be unshakeable and assured, deeply at peace' John 16 MSG
This is the scripture which enabled us to go to Malawi, in spite of both circumstances and health screaming that we were mad to do it at that time! God was so faithful, and we had the most fruitful time yet. Every person we prayed for, the pain left immediately - chest, head, internal, limb, ear, whatever! People were so hungry for the living Word of LIFE that produces tangible results and changed lives.
Holy Spirit had shown me a broad sword laid accross my hands - the Word we were to take there, and a signet ring showing we were authorised by Him.
The Firestarters training really did set the young assistant pastors on fire - some of them received a powerful baptism in the Holy Spirit for the first time - one young man couldn't sleep after prayer. Andy had told him, 'You'll have an encounter with God tonight and you'll speak in tongues. He went into the church buliding to pray at 1am, felt as if he was going to vomit and was so concerned not to do that in the church, he tried in vain to hold it in - it burst out of him - and it was tongues!! He stayed there praying until 5am!

Fruitful Year

Since our last update we've been to Barnstaple several times to share with the Living Wells church family, done 2 of the 3 weekend Firestarters training sessions in Ireland, finished Firestarters training  in Kent, ministered in Malawi for 3 weeks and been blessed to be with our local church family at Tim and Elaine's home! We also held a worship night at our local anglican church in the village of Hemighton, where we meet weekly to pray with the rector and others. We supported the village Open Days by teaching Cruisin' lessons - a simple kind of Rock 'n Roll!
We've taken in a few conferences - Lionheart with Aliss & Rob Cresswell & Bobby Connor - we served on the prophetic teams, European Leaders' Advance with Bill Johnson, Kris Valloton and Paul Mainwaring, will be going to Days of Wonder with Company of burning Hearts, and an apostolic workshop with Paul keith Davies. A busy and productive year so far!
