A journey to Malaysia and Sarawak

Apostle Fred Wolf who is responsible for soul care in Malysia hosted District Apostle Edy Isnugroho and Apostle Samuel Hadiwidagdo (Indonesia) to visit the Malaysia peninsula sub-district from 1st to 4th August 2019.

The District Apostle conducted Divine Services in Kuala Lumpur, Parit Buntar and Padang Serai. Besides, he conducted committee meeting in Kuala Lumpur for preparation of the Chief Apostle visit to Malaysia and a ministers meeting.

The Divine Service in Padang Serai was based on Philippians 4:19. God supplies all our needs. In afflictions we keep confidence in God and remain united. Through his word and the sacraments God gives us what we need in order to be saved. He makes an appeal to our solidarity in order to relieve the needs of our neighbour.

The journey continues to Sarawak from 5th to 7th August. Sarawak is a country in the Malaysian Federation belongs to the mission field of NACSEAsia and is cared for by the Indonesian brothers from Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of Borneo.  The first stop is Salambong congregation. After one hour drive from Kota Betong, District Apostle conducted a Divine Service based on Luke 11:2b. We wait for the kingdom of God to come and let the Lord Jesus reign in us. The presence of Jesus should be increasingly felt in our congregation.

On the next day, our brethren in Mengkak congregation was served with the words from Galatians 6:9.

To do good is to align with the will of God and the example of Jesus Christ. God blesses those who show presverance in doing good and will soon allow them to enter into His glory. They closed the trip by visiting Pontianak congregation, West Kalimantan, on their way home and conducted a midweek divine service.

We pray for MH17
On board MH17 were also 4 members of the New Apostolic Church according to news on the websites of NAC Netherlands and NAC North Rhine-Westphalia.

The Chief Apostle comments in a message as follows:
"The misfortune hits me very hard! We have prayed yesterday evening for the victims in the circle of the Apostles here in Kigali / Rwanda, where I am currently visiting our faithful. My flight departed only minutes before the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 from Amsterdam. Maybe I have even met some of these people at the airport. I pray intensely for all the victims and their families and share the suffering of our brothers and sisters."

The New Apostolic Church Malaysia reaches out in thought and prayer to all mourning families. We join the international community to offer sympathy and condolences. May healing and forgiveness be brought about by the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
