1) What an amazing Christmas season it has been with Christmas carols being played in shopping malls around the country, people catching up with each other, lots of food, parties, etc. and I know that many of you would have taken the opportunity to share with someone, ‘Jesus is the Reason for Season!”
If you had an opportunity to do so, please send us a brief email of your testimony as we would like to share your story with our network around the world.
We at Catch The Fire had a fantastic Christmas Carol’s service, singing many Christmas carols, with special items & yummy food. Then we had a great Christmas Eve service, and dawned Christmas at church. It was just so wonderful.
On Christmas Day, Pastor Daniel and his family joined together with people who do not have family in Australia and had a special lunch at church. This was so wonderful. Two things in particular caught the eyes of everyone present. One young man called Barry, was suddenly spotted crying in a corner by Pr Daniel and others.
Pr Daniel put his arms around him and asked him why he was crying. He responded, “I am the only child in the family. Mum & Dad are no more, as they died a few years ago. I am feeling very lonely.” Then others too came around him and told him that we were now his family and that we love him very much. Minutes later Barry was smiling and telling people, “I found a new family. Glory to God.”
Another gentlemen called Jeff came for the Christmas lunch, and that was his very first time in church. He too had no family. He was living alone all by himself. Many people from church welcomed him and showed much love. Pr Daniel spent some time talking to him, and then led him to Jesus. Glory to God, on Sunday Jeff came to church and shared a brief testimony. He said, “I feel I have found a new family, as I didn’t have a family”.
We thank God for every opportunity He gives us to love and share the Good News of the Gospel to another precious soul!
New Year’s Eve was also great night as the church was packed out, buzzing with great excitement. People worshipped, praised God and thanked Him for all His wonderful blessings in 2012.
As 2013 dawned, the people shouted out with joy and then declared ‘AUSTRALIA FOR JESUS’ in 2013 three times!
Then as the worshippers lifted up high praise, the people started dancing and praising God. With much joy people came to the altar and gave their first offering for 2013 into the house of God. Then as the worship band sang “Oh the blood of Jesus” all participated in the Lord’s Supper. It was such a wonderful night in the presence of God.
Pr Daniel shared a powerful prophetic message from the Word of God on the ‘7 Prophetic areas that God is going to increase His anointing upon in 2013’ for His people who are ready to position themselves to receive it. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (03)9 9794 8211 after 6th January to order this DVD for $15 (plus $5 postage).
After this it was a really good time of enjoying the great variety of food and wonderful fellowship.
We are looking forward for great things in 2013 in Rising Up Australia to Catch the Fire in Jesus Name!
