About the Event
Going into All the World
It wasn’t too many years ago that to do mission work, the norm was to go overseas. Now the nations are coming to us right here in NZ. In this breakfast we will talk with Alan Stephenson about how ordinary kiwis can effectively reach others with the love of Jesus.
Alan has done the classic overseas mission for 30 years in Tanzania. He and his wife Lynda have done an exemplary job building The Joshua Foundation.
Now through The Joshua Foundation he trains and empowers others for community transformation. We live in an increasingly secular society where many feel isolated and deficient of hope. Alan will share with us how he is equipping others to bring an unstoppable move of God’s love in their communities.
He and their teams have seen miracles, healings and salvations. Recently one day nine people surrendered to Christ including two prostitutes. One of them had a dream the night before that some ministers came and set them free from torment. They gave their lives to Christ and the following Sunday testified to the congregation that Jesus had set them free!
Another person in the team went and prophesied over a man in an area where drug addicts and thieves live. He felt this man would be like a Saul of Tarsus who went from attacking Christians to powerfully spreading the gospel. Two weeks later the same guy, who was a gang leader, came to the Healing Room and gave his life to Christ with 11 of his companions!
As we listen to Alan we will be encouraged to pray for people, minister the love of God and to watch God move powerfully in our community.
