Sister Ruth Devairakkam reports as follows…
“Our Advent Christian group in Kluang, Malaysia ministers in the following areas:
We have house fellowship twice a month in the homes of our Church members. We also invite our non-Christian friends for this fellowship. A time of praise and worship is followed by the sharing of God’s Word. Testimonies are shared, and this is a source of encouragement to everyone present. The families which invite us for House fellowship prepare dinner for us. After the dinner, we have a time of friendly conversation.
Services on Sunday
Our Sunday morning services go on as usual in my house. There will be Holy Communion after the sharing of God’s Word. Testimonies are shared too. We provide lunch after the service. Usually some of those who attend the service will stay on for a time of fellowship.
Some of the people in our neighborhood and further away, come to us when they need to write official letters in the Malay Language and English Language, for example letters to the Education Department, Welfare Department or for business matters. We make friends in this way, and even invite them for house fellowship.
Praying for Christians and non-Christians
My late father’s (Rev. T. Devairakkam) friends, their children and grandchildren from outstation and overseas come to visit us, and also tell us to pray for their needs. Some come with joy for answered prayer, and to share their testimonies of God’s blessings in their lives. My own friends and my husband, Wilfred’s friends visit us for prayer. Some of them are Chinese.
We concentrate more on one-to-one evangelism in our neighborhood and out-station areas. We invite them to our home to tell them more about Jesus. We find that it is easier to tell them about our Lord once we have established friendship with them. They usually ask us to pray for them. Almost every week we have people coming over to my house for prayer.
PRAISES TO GOD
- On New Year’s Day, a Chinese business woman gave us a box of perfumes. We shared Jesus with her. As we prayed for her, she found a solution for her situation.
- The Chinese gentleman who knocked down my husband, Wilfred while driving his van when Wilfred was crossing a road last year, still keeps in touch with us. We have given him a copy of the Chinese Bible. He converses with us in the Malay Language.
- We had a combined Christmas Service with a Malay-speaking Church. Six Churches participated in this combined Christmas gathering
- We had a beautiful New Year’s Day Service, followed by lunch and fellowship in my house. It was a time of sharing God’s goodness in our lives. We look forward this year for a more intimate relationship with God and an increased burden for souls.
Please pray along with us that those who visit us with a burden in their hearts will find
solace in Christ as we share with them the goodness of the Lord, and come to the saving
knowledge of Jesus.”
