The Assembly of God, Spain organized the second Congress of Educators in Madrid. Dr Sos spoke at the first Congress last year and was invited to speak again this year. Rev Edgardo Munoz from Argentina spoke in the afternoon session and closing service. It was a great day, good to meet leaders, pastors and educators who are shaping the spiritual landscape of the Pentecostal denomination in Spain.
For the last 11 years, Dr. Sos and Barbara continue their ministry at City Revival Church holding seminars for leadership and preaching in their Sunday services. Rev. Suresh Sundram and his staff are busy providing special training for workers and leaders to equip them for special ministry.
This time the theme was “Reaching your Neighbourhood.” Leaders and members of the church sacrificed after a very busy weekend of doing community ministry to attend the seminar. Rev.Doug and Wanda Crouse, and Dr. Sos shared the teaching. A great blessing to all of us.
The last ministry point in Indonesia was in Denpasar, Bali. Several leaders approached Dr. Sos at the PAM Conference and asked him if he could come to Bali for two days of holding seminars for pastors and leaders. They organized the seminar and two services at two different location. Dr. Sos and Rev. Douglas Crouse taught the seminars. The excitement and receptivity of the pastors was noticeable throughout the teaching. The Lord ministered to people during evening services, especially to the pastors. Dr. Sos and Rev. Crouse were blessed to be able to impart Gods word to these precious servants of God.
Two days of ministry at SAB Bible College of GPdI churches. Dr Sos was teaching on “Truth versus Pragmatism.” Rev. Doug Crouse, lead pastor of SPA, Edmonton, AB also taught in to sessions. It was an exciting time for the students, especially for the first year students. The last session was changed into a special service time with worship and preaching. After preaching, Dr Sos gave an altar call. The Spirit of God began a deep work in students heart. The prayer extended beyond the usual time and nobody minded it. We were very blessed to see how the Lord has blessed so many.
Dr. Sos and Barbara returned to Medan, but this time with Rev. Douglas and Wanda Crouse. The first ministry Dr. Sos had was a seminar for the church leaders and workers at Filadelfia GPDI church, where Rev. Dr. Paul F. Wakkary is the lead pastor. Dr. Sos also ministered at Filadelfia in the first service on Sunday morning.
Pastor Samuel Ghozaly, lead pastor at Eben Haezer Assembly, GPdI, invited Dr Sos to minister in his Saturday service. From the very beginning the ministry of the Holy Spirit in worship and preaching led to a great response of the word of God. Many people responded to the altar call. It was a real blessing to be there.
On Sunday Morning, the second service took place at Maranatha GPdI. Dr. MD Wakkary is the Superintendent of the GPdI churches in Indonesia, and also the lead pastor of this growing congregation. The Holy Spirit moved mightily, meeting the needs of many believers, who came to receive a special blessing from the Lord.
The work of the Lord continues to grow at Myanmar New Life Christian Centre. Two nights of ministry were planned. Monday afternoon a five hour seminar on “Spiritual Leadership” for Dr. Sos, and Tuesday night a service, where Rev. Doug Crouse ministered. Both ministries were powerfully blessed of the Lord. The prayer for the leaders and the congregation on Tuesday brought new experiences and excitement for future ministry.
Dr. Sos and Barbara were looking forward to minister at Grace Assembly. Two years ago they introduced the plans for the new church centre. Rev. Calvin Lee and his able staff are on the way to realize the vision God gave them for new facilities, which will allow them to expand their borders beyond the limits of space and parking. On the weekend the church holds 14 services in various places in the city. Dr. Sos was ministering in two english services on Sunday morning. Great church, sound doctrine and move of the Spirit distinct this assembly from many other in the city. Thank God for such good places of worship.
After ministry in Palembang, Dr Sos and Rev. Johannes Schneider traveled to Beji, by Batu City to teach students of SAB Bible College. Three sessions were scheduled. The students just started new semester and were very excited to learn theology from a different perspective. The cross section of age and different ethnical backgrounds made the sessions even more challenging. The Lord willing Dr. Sos will be teaching several more sessions in two weeks.
The ministry of Dr Sos and Barbara continues with the ministry in Medan. Rev. Johannes Schneider, director of “Theological Seminary Beroea”, Erzhausen, Germany, joined them. The first point of ministry was the Bible School Rhema” Medan. Rev. Schneider taught on the Gospel of Mark. In the Evening we joined the cell leaders meeting. A moving experience, to see so many dedicated believers to minister every week the word of God to thousands of people, is simply amazing. Rev. Dr. Gideon Munthe and his staff are continuing with evangelism and church plants. Some 2000 people were added the last to years. They also added 150 new cell groups.
Saturday night Dr. Sos preached at youth crusade. Many young people came to know the Lord and others received a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit. Sunday some 15 services took place in various locations.
After a very successful time of ministry in Germany, Dr. Sos and Barbara traveled to Asia for four weeks of ministry. Arriving in Penang four services were planed for Dr Sos to minister. Three on Sunday morning and one in the evening. Rev. Markus Tan the lead pastor and the AoG First Assembly Church, have seen substantial growth in his last few years.
