1) The weekend gone by was one of so much activity at Catch the Fire Ministries and Rise Up Australia for the Kingdom of God!
Starting on Friday night, with only 24 hours’ notice, a bunch of faithful prayer warriors gathered at the steps of the Victorian State Parliament to pray and light candles in remembrance of those who lost their loved ones 10 years ago in Bali.
It was raining as we were driving to the Victorian State Parliament in Melbourne city. We started praying and the rain stopped just 15 min before the meeting started! We thank God that we were able to pray for our city of Melbourne and nation of Australia, right on the steps of Parliament. Many passing by tooted their horns in support, while others put their windows down and gave us the thumbs up. Some even joined the service.
Many were greatly impacted as they read the signs we held and saw us waving Australian flags and praying for our nation. We also prayed for the culture of violence to stop in our cities, for protection over our nation and for God’s peace to prevail. One police officer on duty commented, “It is so nice to see a group genuinely caring for our nation and praying for us.”
2) The first AGM of Rise Up Australia Party was held in Melbourne on Saturday the 13 of Oct. The RUA Party National Executive was very encouraged with the number of people who turned up for the meeting. The meeting went very well with RUAP members attending from across the country.
The National President Daniel Nalliah addressed the gathering and challenged the people to rise up to take a stand to protect Australia and ‘Keep it Australian’. He also re-enforced the vision, emphasising that the task ahead of us is very challenging, but by God’s grace Rise Up Australia Party will fight to ‘Keep Australia Australian!’
He spoke very passionately and boldly about the importance of protecting our Judeo-Christian Heritage, and ‘Keeping Australia Australian’ for generations to come, so that our sons & daughters can enjoy the freedoms we have. He also spoke out very strongly against Islamic Sharia Law and Multiculturalism. His speech was received with much applause and shouts of support by those present.
Following the National President’s speech, the four State Presidents for Vic, WA, Tas & QLD addressed the gathering. They too spoke with great passion and love for Australia, re-enforcing their commitment to ‘Keep Australia Australian!’
All gathered at the AGM were very encouraged and challenged through the passion and conviction demonstrated by the leadership of the party.

3) On Sunday morning the 14th of Oct at a packed out church service at CTFM in Hallam (Melbourne), with Aussie flags waving, the whole Executive of RUAP was prayed for and the mission to take Australia for Jesus by 2020 was prophetically prayed over by Pr Jenny Jack and supported by all who were present.
Pr Daniel stated, “it is only by God’s grace we will see the victory, so please do uphold us in prayer.”
4) Sunday night was a great night as four members of CTFM were baptised in water into the Lord Jesus Christ. We thank and praise God for these precious souls.
