Ministering in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. A four day seminar on “Church growth and Development.” Every night people came expecting to receive an understanding how to be more efficient to the ministry of the church. Rev. Dr. Daniel Brkic, lead pastor and the Superintendent of the AoG churches, has a great vision for his country. Great Sunday service.
Today we had three services. In the afternoon in the Myanmar church in Singapore. Dr Sos taught a study about the rapture and second of Christ and then preached in the service. I think the Burmese language looks so cute. The characters on the the bible say: Holy Bible. The left part means holy, the right part means bible. The two circles in the middle means there are two words.
The pastors asked Dr Sos if he could do two more sessions on “Eschatology” since it sims there is a lot of confusion about the “Rapture” and there “Second Coming of Christ.” So on Tuesday and Wednesday nigh, Dr Sos continued with the teaching more for the leaders of the congregation in the newly renovated facility.
Just finished the AM service at Harvester AoG, Singapore. An amazing service. Powerful altar ministry. Now on the way to the Myanmar church for the afternoon service and afterwards to Johor Baru, Malaysia, for Leadership retreat beginning at 7:00pm.
Since Sunday night, I am ministering at “Harvester AoG, Leadership Retreat. Pastor Bernard Foo is the lead Pastor. The Lord has been doing some deep work in the hearts of the leaders. We have powerful prayer times in the presence of the Lord. The theme of the retreat is “The Spiritual Aspect of Leadership.”
The 30th Anniversary of SAP Bible School, Palembang, Sumatra, began with ministry of the word. The next two days I taught 4 sessions. The First two session on “Weapons mighty in God and Spiritual Warfare” and the second sessions on “Church growth and Development“. Pastors, graduates of this Bible School came from many islands to celebrate 30 years of Gods faithfulness to this place. In the Evening I preached and ministered to the pastors by laying on hands and prayer. The Lord released a special blessing for their future ministry.
For the last four days Dr. Sos was teaching at SAB Bible College, Beji, East Java. The subject “Spiritual Warfare and Prayer.” Students came to learn how to confront evil spiritual forces and how to discern manifestation of demonic forces.This subject is not being taught in many colleges.
A two day seminar at the Pentecostal church in Manado, organized by District Superintendent Rev.Yvonne Awuy, was a very successful time of teaching and ministry.
Dr. Sos was teaching on ”Developing a healthy church and Ministry.” Great appreciation for the outlines of the seminar and Q &A session sparked a renewed interest to have such seminars annually. Dr Sos also ministered in the revival rally in the evening service. Pastors not only come to receive theoretical knowledge, but also a new refreshing power and renewal of the Holy Spirit.
Dr. Sos ministered in first of the two nights of revival meetings organized by the local church. The time of ministry was very special. The Lord renewed the ministry of the pastor’s and others received the power of the Holy Spirit.
5 Sunday services. Dr Sos preached four of them. So good to see some 7000 believers vorshiping the Lord. The Communion time was very special. This church has more elders then some churches members.
Barbara and Dr. Sos received an invitation to Tondano for dedication of two new classrooms. Dr. Sos and Barbara have made many ministry trips to this place. First when the school started they helped financially, later on with school materials buying books and necessary materials and with renovations of the old classrooms. Presently the school has several buildings some were build with finances from the local government. The number of students almost tripled and it is regarded as the number #1 school in N. Sulawesi. Barbara participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony.
The same property houses a seniors and a children’s home. There are 98 children and some 50 seniors there, which is a huge ministry for the churches that support them. Every time Barbara comes along to visit here, her ministry is to buy supplies for the children and seniors. The excitement is always great. They sing special songs and enjoy the presentation of gifts.
Some years ago, Dr. Sos visited “Sekolah Alkitab Langowan”, but this time he came to teach. The subject “Anointing” is a needed teaching, since there are many misunderstandings what the anointing is and how it is practiced in the ministry. The students were very glad to receive a good understanding of it and showed the desire to be used in the ministry in such a way.
Reverend Efrayim A. da Costa, lead pastor of GPdI Bethesda Church, invited Dr. Sos for ministry in Makassar. Dr Sos ministered in the youth rally on Saturday night and preached three services on Sunday. The services were well attended. The word of God touched many believers, some even saying that Dr. Sos’s preaching could be even longer. The vision of the church is to expand the sanctuary to 1500 seating capacity. The construction already began.
