Japan - June / July 2017

13th July 2017

Praise the Lord for a wonderful and anointed ministry in Japan. You may listen to the seven teachings we gave by going to andrewshreeve.org / teaching - audio / Japanese / and look for the teaching titles ending in 2017. The teaching includes a clear explanation of what the Lord requires from us to be guaranteed, 100%, a joyous entrance into heaven when we die; and what is the unforgivable sin, or the sin unto death.

The teaching and preaching ministry was very well received. Two ladies at different times came forward to pray to place their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ to receive the remission of their sins and the gift of eternal life. We baptised one of the ladies in water. She was really filled with the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit.

In the final meeting in Osaka the Lord gave a sign to confirm the truth of His Word (Mark 16:20). A lady who had been suffering with severe pain from a kidney stone was instantly healed whilst listening to the preaching. In that same service we prayed for a man with a deaf ear, and he indicated immediate improvement in his hearing in that ear.

We also felt the need to do more, to win the Japanese people to the Lord Jesus. We felt that a good initial goal is to work towards increasing the Japanese born again population to 20 million. Presently, only about 2% of the 126 million Japanese people identify as Christians. Will you join your faith with ours to pray the Lord will give wisdom to the church, and the resources and labourers, to achieve this goal?

The Lord bless you,

with love,

Andrew

Thailand May 2017

30th May 2017

This month we enjoyed a wonderful time of ministry in the southern Thailand region of Surat Thani, and Friendship church, Bangkok. We ministered in five churches in the Surat Thani area teaching about, the Lord's covenant promises and, how to establish our heart in faith in the Lord's covenant through meditation. The ministry was well received with invitations to return and minister in more depth in the future.

In addition to the preaching and teaching, we needed to print an additional 500 copies of my book "The Sword of the Spirit" which has been translated into the Thai language. Distributing the book when ministering gives the ministry greater impact as people receive a tool which they can use in their home to gain further knowledge and implement the teaching on meditation. The book continues to be distributed in 134 prisons throughout Thailand.

We also saw people respond at the meetings with 13 first time decisions to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and about 60 dedications to Christ, including indicating trust in Jesus' shed-blood for the remission of sins.

The Lord bless you and the nation of Thailand, with love,

Andrew

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
