Korean students

On my way home after the 3rd lesson I cried because I realised how big a sinner I am.

After week 6 I really understood that I was a sinner.

“Lord, why do You love me even though I have done bad things?"

“God is pleased with me and I no longer need to please Him by doing things in my own strength”. I am willing now! God is not a judge! I wanted to cry when I realised that God loved me first

Studying “Having a Real Relationship with God”


Bible study in Prison

In 2013 we gave out over 40% more Bible study booklets at prison and had twice as many people receive certificates than the previous year. - We are rejoicing how the Lord provided in every way and trust Him to do the same for us in 2014!

Money and Possessions: The Quest for Contentment

I have stopped doing some past bad decisions regarding money.

Understanding Spiritual Gifts

I found that spiritual gifts are not complicated, but they are life changing.
I am pleased to share my spiritual gift with my fellow Christians ... supporting, comforting and giving verbal encouragement.

The Lord has made me realize my spiritual gift through this study. I was oblivious to any gift I had and often thought it was just to serve others and to be better equipped to be of service to God. The Lord has helped me recapture my role in life. The very essence that has come to me naturally is leadership.
It is important that I recognise it simply because of the constant struggle my people are going through today as tangata whenua. Our language is diminishing and more importantly our identity due to the land confiscation and colonisation. The prison numbers and the poverty my people live in are alarming. The Lord had put on my heart to lead so they will follow Him despite the many challenges. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you to give you a hope and a future.”

Can you hear the pain?
Together we can reduce this pain through Precept Bible studies. Please contact me if you would like to help.
