Joyous And Peaceful Christmas And A Very Fruitful New Year.

Dear Elijah Challengers and Friends,

Sister Grace and I thank God for blessing all of us at Elijah Challenge Asia in 2009. God has opened many doors for us to minister in East and West Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore. We were not only able to serve but build strategic relationships for future ministries.

We are looking forward to train more Christians to heal the sick and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in 2010.

The New Year will be a special and pivotal time for Elijah Challenge Asia. We will be launching training courses in ECA Center. We pray that these courses will be able to equip those who want to learn more about how to maximize their faith in healing the sick while sharing the Gospel.

We will also like to connect better with all the Elijah Challengers and friends across the globe with a better website and blog. We hope that this will be a virtual meeting place to exchange views, experiences, approaches and testimonies of God's miracles.
Please continue to pray for us as we look for ministry partners to serve together in various aspects of this ministry.

We want to take this opportunity to thank our spiritual mentors, Reverend William and Pastor Lucille Lau, for blessing, guiding and giving us very wise advice. Their lives and ministries have been an inspiration.

Reverend Alvin Tan, our Senior Pastor and his wife, Pastor Lynda have been most caring and loving. They and the members of High Praise Church have supported our ministry in every step of the way.

Deacon Charlie Tan and his wife, Sister Cindy have gone the second mile to provide not only an office for Elijah Challenge Asia but an enjoyable working environment filled with the love of God.

Sister Grace's parents, Brother and Sister Ong,have been our ministry partners on many mission trips. They have cared and blessed us in so many ways that it is impossible to describe here.

In 2009, we witnessed countless miracles in all the churches that we have visited. All these were possible because of a magnificent team of
Prayer Warriors headed by Sister Christina Chung. These precious brothers and sisters spend much time to intercede for us and also the other ministers serving at The Elijah Challenge.

Last but not least, we want to thank all of you who support Elijah Challenge Asia with your voluntary services, prayers, words of encouragement and also finance.

We love you all and look forward to experience more of God's goodness and blessings in Elijah Challenge Asia.

May the Lord bless you and your family.

Please have a joyous and peaceful Christmas and a very fruitful New Year.

In Christ Alone,

Pastor Albert and Sister Grace Kang

More important than "the real meaning of Christmas"?

During this season we are often urged to focus on "the real meaning of Christmas." However, there is something even more important beyond Christmas that we should consider. Unfortunately, we are rarely taught to examine it---even though we all know that the earthly matters which consume us today will fade to nothingness in the light of the eternity to which we hope to be transported someday. In this vein I'd like to share this article with you.

Is it right to focus our attention on our heavenly reward?

Among most Christians today, there is little thought given to eternal rewards. Quite a bit of energy by contrast is committed to the things of this life and to securing God’s blessings here and now. There are those who may be more spiritually minded, but since they are taught that salvation is settled once for all by grace through our faith, they do not dwell on their eternal reward. When we leave this world and go to be with the Lord, we will find out. All we know is that it will be glorious. In the meantime, we focus our attention almost exclusively on earthly matters.

But is it “unspiritual” or not worth our effort to focus on our heavenly reward? No, it is not. It’s clear that God created man in a way such that he responds in an appropriate fashion to the environment, especially to rewards and punishment. Even repenting and putting one’s faith in Christ is our response to the gospel. If we repent, we have eternal life. If we do not, we will suffer eternal condemnation in hell. The Lord is well aware of how He created us, and has included teaching in Scripture about eternal rewards as well as punishment.

Scripture teaches us that in addition to and apart from salvation, there is an eternal reward for us. This reward will depend on our work for the Lord and the quality of that work. Those of us whose work for the Lord does not pass the test will not receive any reward even though our salvation may be intact.

1 Corinthians 3:12 If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man’s work. 14 If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. 15 If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.

Revelation 22:12 “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.

Our reward is not based on our faith. It is based on the works and the quality of those works which are a result of our faith.

Our reward includes the authority to rule
Among those who do receive a reward, it will vary from person to person and be given out according to what we have accomplished for Him. Since the Lord is just, the ability that each person has been given is also factored into the determination of the reward apportioned to that person. In the parable of the minas, the master entrusts to each of ten servants the same amount of money---one mina. We can reasonably assume from the parable of the talents in Matthew 25 that these servants all had the same ability. When the master returned home from his journey, he sent for the servants to whom he had given the money, in order to find out what they had gained with it.

Luke 19:16 “The first one came and said, ‘Sir, your mina has earned ten more.’ 17 ”‘Well done, my good servant!’ his master replied. ‘Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.’ 18 “The second came and said, ‘Sir, your mina has earned five more.’ 19 “His master answered, ‘You take charge of five cities.’

We see here that the reward apportioned by the master to each servant was in direct proportion to what the servant earned for him. And the reward was authority over cities in the master’s kingdom. Similarly, our eternal reward has to do with authority to rule for the Lord in His coming kingdom. And the more we have accomplished for him on earth (given the ability entrusted to us), the greater authority we will have in His kingdom.

Revelation 2:26 To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— 27 ‘He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery just as I have received authority from my Father.

Revelation 5:10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”

“I will put you in charge of many things”
The parable from Matthew 25 reinforces this conclusion. To the two faithful servants who had gained five and two talents respectively for their master, each according to his ability, the master apparently gave the same reward. To each he promised the same thing: “I will put you in charge of many things.”

Matthew 25:21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

To the third servant who, paralyzed by fear, did nothing with the talent entrusted to him aside from hiding it in the ground, the master meted out severe punishment.

30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

We who call ourselves Christians, believers, or servants of God should take notice of what befell this third servant. Let us not ignore this as we have done for so long. We should not twist this Scripture to fit our preconceived ideas or theology. As James said, “faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” (James 2:17)

Real property of our own in the next life
Scripture also describes our rewards in terms of “true riches” and “property of our own” in heaven. These are reserved for disciples who know what to do with the worldly wealth entrusted to them by the Lord. Our wealth in this life is actually His property; we are only stewards of that wealth. If we are trustworthy in handling His property in this life, He will give us property of our own in the next life. In this way we are encouraged to store the treasure entrusted to us here on earth in heaven above.

Luke 16:11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? 12 And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?

In Luke 12 Scripture gives a hint of what kind of work in terms of quality we are expected to do in order to qualify for our reward.

Luke 12:42 The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? 43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. 44 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions.

We as managers are to be faithful in feeding and teaching God’s people. If when Christ returns we are in fact engaged in teaching His sheep properly, we will be put in charge of all His possessions. This is wonderfully difficult to imagine. However, there is a very unpleasant flip side to this.

Assigned a place with the unbelievers in hell
Luke 12:45 But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and get drunk. 46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

This poor servant finds himself in a place with the unbelievers, that is, hell. How did this come about? He began to beat the other servants and to eat and drink and to get drunk. He began to rule over the other servants and to mistreat them as people in authority on earth often do. (See The Teaching of the Nicolaitans for more on this.) He began to love his life in the world, doing the things that unbelievers in the world do. Figuratively, he is eating and drinking and getting drunk.

Moreover, this servant of God is teaching God’s people to do the same. Such ministers are feeding the people a very poor diet of sugar and candy. They are teaching God’s people how to maximize God’s blessing, comfort, and success in this life. Not a few servants of God are doing this today. Some are hired hands and really do not care for the sheep as Jesus does. They are out to fleece the sheep and at their expense to enjoy life on earth, eating and drinking just as the lost do. They are not ready for the Lord’s return, and will be in extreme dismay when they stand before the Son of Man on the day He is revealed.

Luke 17:26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking,marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.

In contrast, the reward for the servants who are feeding nutritious food to God’s people and are watching for the Lord’s return is diametrically the very opposite. These are the servants who are dividing and teaching God’s word accurately.

Luke 12:37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.

It’s not unspiritual to focus on our eternal reward
We see from these many Scriptural references that the Lord does not discourage us from looking ahead to our eternal reward. We are in fact commanded to set our hearts and minds on things above, and not on earthly things. This must include our eternal reward as well. Those who want to be wise and to prepare for the life that is truly life should change their focus from the earthly to the heavenly.

Colossians 3:1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

This emphasis will help us to focus our time and resources on the most important task of preaching the gospel and harvesting the crop for eternal life.

John 4:36 Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.

Let us therefore avoid the mistake of ignoring our eternal reward when Christ returns. If we are truly serious about eternity, we will change our perspective radically. The next life will not be as it is popularly imagined. We will not spend eternity floating on a cloud with angels popping grapes into our mouths to the accompaniment of harp music. No, there will be much activity in the next life as we rule with Christ over the nations. It will be unimaginable.

1 Corinthians 2:9 However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”—

2 Timothy 2:11 Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us...
Revelation 3:21 To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne.

Focusing continual attention---not only at Christmas time---on what is to come in eternity will encourage us to live holy lives on earth and enable us to resist the temptation to sin against God. It will strengthen our resolve to serve God fruitfully and wisely with our time and resources, especially for the harvest and the Great Commission.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. (Proverbs 1:7)

A most meaningful, holy, and fruitful life of service to Jesus Christ be yours!

Love in Christ,

William & Lucille

Church explodes from 30 to 300 in 8 months after Basic Training!

We have received two exciting reports from Pastor Joshua Gowda, our Training Centre Director in India, and would like to share them with you ~

  • "Pastor Sukvinder has been serving the Lord for ten years at Bitanda Punjab. Eight months ago he trained at The Elijah Challenge Training Center. Eight months later he called me on the phone and shared how he had been blessed by the Elijah Challenge Training. His congregation had remained at 30 people for ten years. But it multiplied to 300 people after receiving the Elijah Challenge Training. He calls the church “Voice of Jesus Church.” For the entire report along with photos, click on
  • "The November 2009 Elijah Challenge Feeding Event was conducted at the village Sonia Vihar in Uttar Pradesh. The population of this entirely Hindu village is 6,800. This is the first Evangelistic Feeding Event ever to be held in this village. We had very successful event. Close to 380 people came to the Feeding Event and close to 335 Hindus received Jesus Christ has their Lord and Saviour. The first new Elijah Challenge Church was planted at the village Sonia Vihar. I received a phone call from our TEC-trained Pastor Mohan Mashi on Sunday, November 22. Close to 85 people came to worship the Lord Jesus Christ [at that very first service]. Praise God!" For the entire report with pictures, please click on

Praise the Lord for what He is doing through His servants during these last days. Thank you for interceding for us and partnering with us so fruitfully, dear brethren.

A most blessed Christmas season be to you and your loved ones!

Healing Miracles in the Jungle of Sabah

In October 2009, Pastor William and Pastor Lucille, the founders of The Elijah Challenge conducted the Basic Training in the state of Sabah, which is located in Malaysian Borneo. The Lord was gracious to move very powerfully through the trained believers at the climactic Evangelistic Healing Rally. Please view the report at The Elijah Challenge Report - Malaysia

After Pastor William and Pastor Lucille left, doors began to open for these disciples as God began to use them miraculously. Here is the latest news. Recently, twenty of the trained disciples loaded up in off-road vehicles for a trip into the interior of Sabah. They traveled to a village where 77 people were waiting for them; these villagers had heard a testimony about the God who heals. Many of them who came had physical infirmities and wanted to be healed. According to their report, here's what happened next....

Twenty strong Full Gospel Tabernacle Church members led by Pastor Delvin Yong left the city of Kota Kinabalu at 7 a.m. and headed for Kiau village. After leaving the main highway, the off-road journey into Kiau Nuluh village was tough and eventually we reached Sadib Miki’s house at 9:30 am.

We prayed to God asking Him to release His power and authority through us as we would carry out the Great Commission for Him---to heal the sick [as part of proclaiming the kingdom of God]. Kiau village has about 800 people who are from the Dusun Hill tribe. The majority of them are Christians but most seldom go to their churches to worship God.

After Sadib Miki was healed in the Elijah Challenge Healing Rally in the city of Kota Kinabalu on October 11, 2009, he testified about the power of God in his Sidang Injil Borneo Church in Kiau village. Many of the villagers wanted to be healed just like Sadib Miki.

Today there were about 77 villagers, mostly elderly people, who turned up at Sadib Miki's house to hear the good news of "God's Healing Power." They believed and trusted that God would heal them. They confessed their wrongdoings and would testify if God healed them. Twenty-five requested healing and twenty-three of them were healed. Twenty-two of them testified that the power of God had healed them and gave Him the glory. One old lady [who was healed] did not testify. A man who had suffered from a stroke and a disabled child needed more ministry.

We thank God for revealing His power and authority. The twenty strong FGT church members ministered with mountain-moving faith, and twenty-three Kiau villagers were healed. Sadib Miki said it was the first time the villagers saw that the power of God was so great. They will all go back to their churches to worship God.

We will keep on carrying out more Elijah Challenge Healing missions. Praise the Lord!

You can look forward to hearing more of their reports when they go into an unreached animistic village to heal the sick, proclaim the kingdom of God (Luke 10:9), and plant a new church! Praise the Lord!

Medical Doctors Confirm God's Miracles with Medical Data

International Christian Medical Conference under the Theme "Spirituality and Medicines" Brought 400 Doctors from 30 Nations 

Contact: Kimberly Shin,
KIEV, Ukraine, Nov. 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- The 6th International Christian Medical Conference was held at President Hotel on October 30 and 31, 2009 under the auspices of Ukraine Organizing Committee of WCDN (World Christian Doctors Network), whose founder and board chairman is Rev. Dr. Jaerock Lee, an evangelical pastor and the author of many Christian titles including "The Power of God"(978-1554522576).

This 6th Conference was attended by 400 doctors and medical professionals from 30 nations including USA and Italy, and was featured by many medical doctors from Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and many other Russian-speaking nations.

On October 30, the Conference was kicked off with the opening remarks by Dr. Mikhail Morgulis, President of Spiritual Diplomacy Movement Foundations and welcoming address by Dr. Gilbert Chae, President of World Christian Doctors Network, and it was followed by a special message by Dr. Jaerock Lee, Founder and Board Chairman of WCDN, presented in Video saying that "Now if you become a true disciple of Jesus Christ, you will not only heal many people's physical diseases but also heal and save their souls as well."

During the Conference, an Australian Doctor Irene Jacovou presented a healing case of a 68-year-old man, and this was the most outstanding case of healing presented. In 2003, he was diagnosed to have severe emphysema, asthma and alpha 1 anti-trypsin deficiency, and had a bilateral lung transplant and received immunosuppressive therapy. In 2008, he noticed a skin lesion on the top of the right shoulder, which was later found to be a malignant tumor. He was diagnosed with skin cancer and was surgically treated, but it recurred. In October, 2008, cancer cells metastasized to chest and lungs, and he was sentenced to live just a few months longer because of this cancer. In winter of that same year he attended a Christian healing prayer meeting and tumor regression started. All the tumors in his skin were gone through fervent prayers, and the CT scan showed that lung metastases disappeared.

A Ukrainian Doctor Larisa from Ukraine presented the case of healing on hepatitis C by prayer, and this was really confirmed as the person of the same case firsthand showed up and testified to his healing. Another Australian doctor Mieke Kuiper presented the case of healing of eclampsia and subarachnoid hemorrhage by prayer. Two Korean doctors presented the cases of healing of the infected cystic mass in the submandibular area and the retroperitoneal necrotizing fascitis due to perforated acute appendicitis, with scientific and medical data confirming the healing cases. In addition, the many cases of the healing of various diseases including schizophrenia, pancreonecrosis, and AIDS that cannot be cured with medicine but only by the power of God.

Whenever the healing cases were presented, the audience submitted various questions and the speakers gave sincere and effective answers, which made the conference exciting to the doctors and many other people in attendance.
Dr. Jenis av Rana from Faroe Islands commented, "I am running a radio station and our station broadcasts various works of God's healing every Thursday. When I am back home, I will let my staff introduce the healing cases presented during this conference and share them with as many listeners. Then, they will send their prayer requests for their problems to us."

And Dan Wooding, Founder and International Director of Assist News Ministry said, "At the same time that Ukrainian candidates are battling each other for votes in the upcoming Presidential election, Christian doctors gathering in Kiev, the country's capital for a 'Spirituality and Medicine' conference, have already cast their vote--for 'miracles.'"

WCDN (World Christian Doctors Network) was organized to medically analyze divine healing cases performed by God, clarify the data before and after the healing and testify with that data that God is alive and the Bible is authentic, and thereby to awaken not only unbelievers but intellectual people including medical doctors and scientists as well and has been holding annual international Christian medical conferences in Seoul of Korea, Chennai of India, Cebu City of the Philippines, Miami of USA, Trondheim of Norway and Kiev of Ukraine, and the 7th Conference will be held in Rome, Italy.

Healing and Miracles @ All the Gospel Church, San Fernando, Philippines


Healing and Miracles @ All the Gospel Church
8 November 2009
9.30 AM – 11.30 AM
2.00 PM – 6.30 PM
All the Gospel Church
Pagdaraoan, San Fernando City
La Union, Philippines

Pastor Conrado Lumahan is the Founder and Senior Pastor of All the Gospel Church, a church affiliated with the Assemblies of God of the Philippines.  From this church, many other barrio churches sprung forth to minister in different parts of Luzon. Apart from being a church pioneer, Pastor Conrado is also well respected as a Christian leader in his region. Thus he also serves as the District Superintendent of the Northern Luzon District Council of his denomination. Before the district under his supervision was divided, he was the overseer of more than 400 churches. Now he takes care of half that size but has plan to multiply them rapidly.

From a humble beginning, 15 years ago, with only a few members, Pastor Conrado pioneered All the Gospel Church which has grown to become a vibrant evangelizing church today. All the Gospel Church is situated by the seashore overlooking South China -  an unsurpassed location in Northern Luzon with a billion-dollar view. In this region, 66 percent of the Filipinos speak Ilocano. The rest of them speak Pangasinan and Tagalog. 

On 8 November 2009, the sanctuary by the seashore was filled with joyful worship songs. The congregation was enthusiastic and apparently energized by the anticipated miracles. In the morning, I shared the message from Mark 10. The objective of the sermon was to encourage the congregation to use the ‘laws of God to convict’ and the ‘grace of God to save’.  Another aspect of the message was to show them how they could take authority over their flesh. Everyone in the church had fun memorizing the Ten Commandments. After that, the congregation collectively confessed and repented of their sins before the Lord.

The healing session was crowded with more than 25 people. As the space at the front was limited, I invited the last two rows of believers to heal those on the front row before they receive their own healing. Pastor Conrado led the infirm in another prayer of repentance because all those who needed healing were Christians. He had learned that healing for these Christians was conditional. If the believers were to condone serious sins such as bitterness and unforgiveness, then they may not receive the healing.

Pastor Conrado commanded the diseases and ailments to leave in his own Illocano language. Many of the believers who exercised their faith to heal were those who needed to be healed themselves. Miracles did not only happen to those they helped but some of them also received the miraculous touch of God themselves.  A sister with chest pain testified that the pain had left her.  A couple of the participants who had back pain testified complete healing.  A few of them with pain in the knees and other parts of their limbs rejoiced at their healing. Soon those who were in the second and third row were allowed to receive their healings. Those who were already healed laid their hands on their fellow members and healed them in the name of Jesus. More people walked up the stage to testify. A few of the elderly were suffering from stomach ailments. After the laying of hands, they were miraculously healed. The morning service concluded with Pastor Lumahan encouraging the congregation to return at two in the afternoon for the Elijah Challenge training.

In the afternoon, there were more participants who came from the neighboring churches. Many were pastors and church leaders. Expounding from Luke 9 and 10, I shared with more details about our God-given authority and power to heal within the context of evangelization. During the healing demonstration, Pastor Lumahan once again led the infirm in a prayer of confession of sins and repentance. There were 16 participants who needed the healing touch. The participants, who were learning how to heal, laid hands on the infirm as Pastor Lumahan shouted out the commands to heal in Ilocano. My team members, Brother and Sister Ong moved among these believers and made sure that they did the healing correctly. For example, the trainees needed to gently lay hands upon the affected areas but they were not allowed to massage or squeeze the infirm. They had to open their eyes because what they were doing was not praying but taking authority over the diseases. In the past, some of the infirm manifested demonic activities and had to be subdued. Without opening our eyes, we would never be able to observe such demonic activities. Therefore, during the training, I emphasized that commanding must be made with eyes wide opened.

After Pastor Lumahan had commanded twice, I requested that the participants to command by themselves. They appointed a leader in their commanding team and went to work. Miracles continued to happen thus proving that every Born-again believer has the authority and power to heal in the name of Jesus.

The testimonies of those who were healed were most encouraging. Those who suffered from pain in the eyes testified that they were completely healed. Pastor Lumahan asked whether the pain was 100 percent gone. All of them confirmed that their pain had gone… 100 percent. Quite a few were healed of back pain. A brother testified that his shoulder pain had left him. An elder said that he was healed 101 percent. Those who had frozen shoulders were able to lift up their arms. A sister who claimed that she had breast cancer felt the pain left her chest and arms. She was asked to go for a medical check-up to confirm healing. A small boy also came up to testify of healing. One sister, who was struggling to be healed of her shoulder and back pain, rejoiced when her pain suddenly vanished. A young lady was partially deaf in her right ear. After a few rounds of rebuking, she could hear. She said that her hearing was 90 percent healed.

We thank God for the doors of opportunity opened to us from Elijah Challenge Asia to minister to the people at All the Gospel Church. We have been blessed because this Church is going to become a healing center. We know that by doing so, this Church will create a great impact for the Gospel in San Fernando and beyond.
