Exuberant Joy at HIS CHURCH - HIS KINGDOM Conference

Coming directly from successful campaigns in Malawi and Zambia Rev Dr Howard Sands & Pastor Wayne Lyons stepped directly into HIS CHURCH - HIS KINGDOM Believers Conference in the White Tent at Wellington, Cape Town, South Africa from 21-23 November 2018 which started with awesome praise and worship, although our host Apostle Heinrich Stubbs acknowledged that he had just put the band together and they had hardly any time to practice it was obvious from the beginning that their prayer soaked lives carried the anointing and lifted the participants into the presence of the Lord from the outset.  Howard shared the word for the believers that lifted and challenged them, a young couple that had come with their family some distance for the meeting at the invitation of our host gave their lives to Christ. What a great rejoicing that was.

The believers conference went on for 3 nights in the tent with different people coming each night and making contacts with the community, Howard and Wayne again took turns to bring the message. A leadership training was held on Friday morning with local Christian leaders from various churches with helpful question and answer sessions. 

The last night in the tent delivered a big challenge to live for God, using the illustrations of water from John 4 (the Samaritan woman at the well – eternal life), “Out of your inner most being shall flow rivers of living water,” from John 7 (the baptism in the Holy Spirit) and the river that flows from the throne of God Revelation 22 (with fruit every month and the leaves are for the healing of the nations, fruitful unity), most people responded to more fully dedicate their lives to the Lord, there was a crowd around the altar as the Lord started to break out among the people in worship, in healing, in deliverance, filling people with His Spirit, exuberant joy, giving their lives to Christ and re-dedication, all happening spontaneously before anyone prayed with them. 




We thank God for His Spirit moving on the people; for Heinrich, in picking up the challenge to move out into a new location, by faith hire a tent and leave a deposit of God in that place to follow up; to Apostle Israel Onoriobe our friend and fellow worker for several years in choosing Heinrich as the vessel to arrange these meetings and working with us, speaking, challenging and praying for people.






Our friend Apostle Martin Burke invited us to share with him in a church leadership training he was doing for another church on Saturday morning, Howard and Wayne shared various aspects of leadership that have helped them in the ministry, this was followed by a fellowship lunch together. 


Sunday saw Howard and Wayne go in different directions to different churches, Wayne speaking at two services in Cape Town and Howard one. The people responding with great enthusiasm to the word. 

We have met some wonderful people, people excited about the move of God in the earth, people passionate to bring this love of Christ to a lost a dying world. We remain thankful and grateful to the Lord and all those who have hosted us, arranged for us, responded to the word and also those who have been a blessing to us as we travel.

Now the challenge before us is the making of arrangements for African ministry visits for 2019 and 2020. Already many leaders across Africa have submitted their requests for our return or for a first time BFTF visit and we have been working through the logistics of that to maximise the opportunities for Africa in the coming 2 years.

If you are in Africa and would like to submit a request we are now only taking submissions by survey form as there have been so many it has become hard to manage. Submit a survey for 2019 or 2020 if you would like a BFTF visit for an evangelistic/healing outreach crusade, a leadership training, a national pastors and leaders unity conference or any other special event at this link here.

300+ Saved, Miracles abound, Unity Turns Around Leadership Attitudes

Zambia receives the message of Unity and hundreds respond to Christ receiving salvation and instant physical healing. 

The Beautiful Feet Task Force (BFTF) team of Rev Dr Howard Sands and Pastor Wayne Lyons arrived in Zambia’s capital city Lusaka after a fruitful ministry in Malawi ready for the next pastors and leaders unity conference arranged by Greater Glory Ministers Fellowship, (GreGlo) outreach crusade and a variety of other ministry activities full of expectation of what God would do.






There had been some opposition to participation in the unity conference and some tensions in the previous few weeks regarding preparations, evidence that a unity conference was not only the word of the Lord but also desperately needed.

  

The conference and corresponding outreach campaign went ahead and tensions were eased as the message of unity started to get a foothold in the lives of those who attended, to such a point that at its conclusion the chairman  of Greater Glory Ministers Fellowship, Bishop Peter Kalumba, relayed a message to us from some of the other leaders of GreGlo who had not participated in the conference, since they had heard the word about unity from those who attended, requested we should bring what we could on this releasing subject at the next ministers fellowship meeting the following Monday to their regular pastors gathering.

 
Naturally Howard and Wayne obliged and went along and shared a small amount of the message of unity to those gathered, 75% of whom had not been in the unity conference. The result was wonderful to see and a request for a return visit was extended to broaden this message further across the city.  Bishop Peter Kalumba said later that the single biggest impact on him was the unity amongst pastors.

Meanwhile each evening the BFTF team had been speaking at the outreach arranged by Bishop Peter in the street outside his church, the attendance was varied over the 7 nights of ministry from about 60 to approximately 250 people, and yet every night many people responded to the message of salvation as Wayne and Howard took turns to preach the message. Over the first 6 nights over 300 people filled out decision cards and gave their lives to Christ, every night many miracles were recorded of people being completely set free from pain, some were recorded on video and are available at BFTF YouTube channel.


With so many new believers Howard spoke on the last night about the power for service for believers through the baptism of the Holy Spirit and as far as we can tell 26 people were baptised in the Holy Spirit at the outreach on that night.  



Pastor Wayne spoke at the Sunday morning service in Bishop Peter’s church and reported that about 75% of the attenders were there for the first time.


Bishop Peter reports that more than 90 people had been visited and one month after our visit 21 people were regularly coming to his church.  Bishop Peter said, “The BFTF team were such seasoned ministers and the church is blessed within our generation.”


During the last few days in Lusaka Howard and Wayne spoke at 2 Bible colleges, a local church leaders meeting, 2 schools  and 2 church services where again miracles of healing happened and lives were impacted for the sake of the kingdom, bringing a broad approach to the purposes of the kingdom, College principal Rev Alexander Bunda said, “The teachings were inspiring and motivating to seriously serve the Lord.” 

Howard spoke at Bishop Eddie Mulenga's ministry, Liberty Christian Centre where about 100 responded to take action on the message and several instant miracles were received by members.

People Find Christ & Ministers Find Unity

The Pastors and Leaders Unity Conference Malawi began in earnest in Blantyre, in southern Malawi on Thursday 8 November with the Beautiful Feet Task Force (BFTF) team of Rev Dr Howard Sands and Pastor Wayne Lyons from Australia at Divine Restoration Church International and hosted by Apostle Samuel Vinkhumbo.

The message of unity, it must be our priority if we are going to effectively communicate the gospel message to the masses that Jesus came for them, was delivered by the guest speakers with a passion for the love of the body of Christ. Malawi received the guests and the message well.

Two days of teaching and inspiration finished with embracing the need for unity and further endeavouring to make direct contacts with other ministry leaders not present to share the message.






The BFTF team also conducted evangelistic outreach at Chilombwe market in Blantyre with the aid of a variety of local singers and musicians who led the crowd in the busy market area with singing and local dancing in typical fashion for over an hour each night. 






The crowd of shoppers, taxi discharges, the patrons of the 6 immediate pubs and various passers by, were challenged with the gospel of Jesus love and judgement, the outcome of sin and the need of salvation, the love of God and his great desire to embrace them in His Kingdom.


Over 3 nights 49 people surrendered their lives to Jesus and came forward to pray the sinners prayer. 









These events and meetings were coordinated by Apostle Samuel Chaula Vinkhumbo, leader of the Malawi unity group for Africa Network BFTF (a division of Beautiful Feet Task Force) whose purpose is to build resources to help African Christian churches grow, mature & deliver the Great Commission.  










The team ministered in 2 local churches on the Sunday, dedicated a baby and ordained a new minister and led 6 people into the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

What a great time together building friendships, enjoying the layed back atmosphere and friendly people. On the Saturday we managed to take a short trip to view the tea plantations, visit Malawi’s tallest mountain and take tea at the golf club.
