The work of Holy Spirit!
The three-night evangelistic rally took off the ground tonight. Before we left for Sibu Town Square, the venue where the rally is held, we noted that the sky had turned dark and there were drops of rain coming down. Seeing the dismal condition, we prayed to God to drive the raining clouds away.
We arrived half an hour before the scheduled time. The site was still sparse. As you all know, Sibuians are habitual late-comers. It was only at 7:30pm that the place started to get filled up. By a rough estimate, the participants came up to more than 5,000. Praise Lord for that!
The rally tonight had a pretty smooth running. Praise goes to our God for the guidance. The blessings of God came in giving fine weather and peaceful surroundings. It was marvellous that only moments ago the sky was still gloomy and in the blink of an eye, the sky turned clear.
In his gospel message, Rev. Dr. Stephen Tong made no blurry terms about the grants to the Methodist churches in the recent campaigning for P212 Sibu by-election. In his usual straightforward manner, Rev. Stephen Tong spoke out sternly, basing on biblical teachings, the practice of this nature. There is really much for us to reflect upon.
A few hundred participants were moved by Holy Spirit and they responded to the speaker's call to join him in prayer. Praise God for the work of Holy Spirit!
Please continue to pray for the evangelistic rally as it moves on to the second night. Tomorrow night there shall be one hour and half of Q&A starting at 6:00pm prior to the rally proper. You are most welcome to partake of it.
