Laos, April 2017

2nd May 2017

I was recently in Laos and visited a remote village. All the inhabitants of the village were from a distinct, minority, ethnic group in Laos. They spoke the 'Kalum' language which is not in written form. There are less than 1,000 of these people in Laos, who originate from the Indian sub-continent.

There was a man there who had been educated in a university in Laos, and spoke reasonable English. We were able to spend time together and he shared some of his struggles with the culture and traditions of his people. I shared with him the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and how Jesus' blood was shed to bring forgiveness and remission of our sins. Also, how Jesus rose from the dead and is now seated in heaven. How eternal salvation comes through, faith in Christ and, acceptance of Jesus Christ as the Lord of our lives.

I asked if he would like to pray with me and accept Christ... he said yes. We prayed together there in his village. He said nobody from his ethnic group, in Laos, has ever accepted Christ before. I gave him my website and YouTube channel details which have extensive, free teaching and discipleship materials. You may like to pray for him. His name is Mr Hook.

With love, Andrew

Bali, Indonesia Feb 2017

9th March 2017

During February / March 2017 we had a nice time of ministry in Bali, Indonesia. The main ministry included a three-day seminar at HOPE centre in Jimbaran. In addition to the teaching, a lady from a Buddhist background who attended the seminar gave her heart to the Lord Jesus Christ. It is always so precious to see a person genuinely come forward and surrender their lives to the Lord Jesus.

I also had the opportunity to preach a short evangelistic message on the pulpit of "The Throne Ministries". They have a television ministry which can potentially reach 20 million people. So it was great to be able to declare that Jesus is the Creator God, and to potentially share the message of God's grace, eternal forgiveness and love to so many millions of people.

I also ministered to a group from Bali Blessing who are doing a great work of evangelism in the 'Hindu' villages.

The ministry takes on many aspects, and we also minister to key individuals encouraging them to stand in faith and believe what the Lord has promised in His Scripture. This trip to Bali was no exception as we sought to strengthen various individuals in their lives.

It was such a beautiful and refreshing time in Bali, Indonesia. The Lord bless you, with love, Andrew

Thailand

Thailand, 6th February 2017

I flew out of Bangkok today feeling so thankful to the Lord and His blessed people. For many months we have been working on the Thai translation of my book "The Sword of the Spirit", 7th edition. I came to Thailand four weeks ago with one primary goal: to complete the translation and do an initial quality printing of 500 books. I am happy to report we completed the goal, within time, and better than expected! A number of Thai Christians really helped including: Muay, Waew, Ethan, Rose, Pastor Sommai, Suttiporn, Amorn and others. It was a real team effort. We have printed the book on beautiful, smooth paper, and as Thai Christians meditate the Scriptural promises in the book they will feel good. We will be able to offer the book at a very cost effective price as well, within the reach of almost everybody.

Last night I met with aunty Sumalee who has a ministry to 135 prisons in Thailand. She visits 6-9 prisons each month. We were able to donate 200 books towards the prison libraries in Thailand, two books per prison. She will personally present the books to the caretaker of the library in each prison. This is a great open door to bring the Lord's covenant promises to people in desperate need of answers for life.

In addition to the book ministry, I was able to minister in Friendship Church, Bangkok and also Revive Urdu Church, Bangkok. In the Thai church a young man gave his life to Jesus Christ. It was a blessed time of fellowship with the saints in these churches.

I have scheduled to return to Thailand around the 21st April 2017, with the goal to preach in numerous Thai churches. I plan to teach on the benefits of meditation of the Lord's covenant promses, and make "The Sword of the Spirit" in the Thai language available for God's people. My hope is we will need to do another printing for that time of ministry as we will need more copies of "The Sword of the Spirit" for the Thai churches .

The Lord bless you, and Thailand,

love, Andrew
