Sarawak - May 2015

12th June 2015 - We recently completed a very powerful time of ministry in Sarawak, Borneo, East Malaysia. Some of the ministry has already been discussed in previous blogs. I will share a few more things now:

We experienced a very powerful anointing in a meeting close to the Brunei border. About 50 people fell under the power of the Holy Spirit as we anointed them with oil and prayed for them in the name of Jesus. There was also a very strong prophetic and teaching anointing in this meeting.

The Penan tribe is the last nomadic tribe of Sarawak. We ministered to some Penan children who were in a boarding home for education... all 22 of the children came forward to give their hearts and loyalty to Jesus.

We went 4 hours on dirt roads deep into the interior of Sarawak and visited a Penan village. I was the first white man ever to preach there. We trekked in about 40 minutes from the road. The chief's wife was miraculously and instantly healed of a 10 year condition of severe pain in her back and hip. Another man was healed of gout pain in his knee. 50+ Penan's gave their hearts to the Lord Jesus (even a visiting muslim surrendered to Jesus and was water baptised).

It was a really successful time with 500 of my scriptural meditation books also distributed during the 2 months ministry in Sarawak. Praise the Lord Jesus!



Victory among the Iban Tribe, Sarawak

12 May 2015 - Borneo: Out reach to the Iban tribe, located in an upper tributary of the Limbang River, Sarawak. We went by narrow boat up the river to the last, or the most remote longhouse, on the river. Here the river is clear, fast flowing, cool and clean, as there is less human disturbance in the jungle upstream. Many of the older folk still hold to their ancient Iban God, and ancestral worship. We came in a big team of about 20 mostly Lun Bawang tribal people, but the relationship with the Iban and Lun Bawang is good. The Superintendant of the local BEM SIB denomination came together with another local Lun Bawang pastor.


The ministry was a tremendous success with 12 coming forward to trust in Jesus' blood for the remission of their sins on the Saturday night. We also led 4 families to the Lord as we visited house to house, and in the final meeting 25 came forward, mostly children to place their trust in, and loyalty to, Jesus - the Lamb of God.


During this ministry time, of sharing the gospel from house-to-house and inviting people to accept the Lord's invitation to receive His grace, we experienced tremendous victory. One man, now in his 60's, said he had a vision of Jesus when he was 18 years old. In the vision he also saw himself being baptised but had done nothing more about it… until this outreach when we invited him to receive the Lord Jesus which he did with great joy. I wondered how many more have received visions of Jesus, and are still waiting for a representative of the Lord to invite them into His Kingdom? Truly the harvest is plenteous, but the labourers are few (Matthew 9:39).


We also had reports of a lady being instantly healed of a heart pain condition and a deaf man could hear after prayer for his ears. We also met with a Paramount Chief of the Iban, whose territory covers a long way in this area of Sarawak. We were able to share the gospel with him and give him a set of my scriptural meditation books in Bahasar, which he can read. We also gave a sets of books to the chief of the longhouse, and some of the families who gave their hearts to the Lord.


Powerful move of the Spirit - Borneo

2 May 2015 - Borneo: we recently concluded a teaching module for Rhema Bible school in Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo. The title of the module was "Understanding the Anointing". For the final session we decided to pray for the students and ask the Lord for an impartation of His anointing. I prayed for the student's one by one and laid hands on them. There were various pray requests and different levels of anointing, however, three students had devilish oppression upon their lives and they fell to the floor and began screaming and writhing uncontrollably, one even spittiing and crying out for help as the devil tore him as the devils departed his body. One thing we can be sure of: the biblical accounts of devils are true. There are devil spirits in this world who try and gain access into human bodies. When I saw the torment upon these students, as the devils tore them, my thoughts went to those who will be eternally tormented in hell. Don't make that mistake! In the name of Jesus Christ the devils left the students. Jesus is the only way to heaven and freedom from all devils. The Lord bless you. With love, Andrew
