August 9, 2009
Charisma Assembly
Segamat, Johor, Malaysia
Sunday Service - 8.30AM
On 9 August which was the National Day of Singapore, Sister Grace and I were in Segamat, a town in the southern state of Johor in Malaysia. We were in Singapore, visiting my mother, and forgot about the extended holidays caused by the National Day. We almost could not make it to Segamat because all the transport systems were fully booked. No train, no flights and almost no buses too. However, thankfully, we managed to find one coach and arrived on Saturday night.
Segamat Town is built along the Segamat River and it is serviced by the Kuala Lumpur railway and a small airfield. Years ago, it was a logging center but today, it services the people who are involved in the palm oil and rubber industry. Sister Grace and I had not been to Segamat for a very long time. I remember driving pass this town way back in the late 1980s. More recently, my countless train rides to Singapore did pass this town but I never got down to take a closer look.

This trip to Segamat gave us a great opportunity to have a closer look at the town again. We learned that Segamat is prone to flood. The flash flood in 2006 was the more serious one. The small town has a population of over 200,000 residents. Many of them are Chinese and they practice the traditional ancestral worship polytheistic religion. There are also quite a number of Christians and most of them are Chinese-speaking.

Pastor Steven Wong felt led by the Lord to minister in Segamat. When he first came with his family, he did not know many words in Mandarin. Today, he is able to converse well with this language. His church, Charisma Assembly, is made up of mainly Chinese-speaking Christians. Today, these Christians are reaching out to their relatives and friends with the message of the Gospel.

As a preview of the Elijah Challenge seminars that we will be conducting from 18 to 21 September 2009, we taught the people briefly on how to use the authority of Christ to heal the sick. Here is our schedule for the coming training.
18 September - Friday - Training from 8.00 PM to 10.00 PM.
19 September - Saturday - Training from 9.30 AM till 12.30 PM
19 September - Saturday - Healing Rally - Evening
20 September - Sunday - Healing Service - Morning
20 September - Sunday - Healing Rally - Evening
21 September - Monday - Training from 9.30 AM till 12.30 PM

After encouraging the people with the word of God, I challenged the infirm to come forth to be healed. The leaders of the church were given brief instruction as to how they could exercise their faith to heal the sick. They were very receptive to the teaching. As I commanded and the leaders laid their hands on the infirm, miracles began to happen. People were healed of various pain and diseases in their bodies. We praise God for showing His power and authority among His people in Segamat. Now, we are looking forward to another great time of faith and miracles at Charisma Assemby.
