Ministry to the children of Malaysia


MINISTRY IN MALAYSIA  Ministry this year was all in suburbs around the capitol city of Kuala Lumpur. David Abbott Children's Ministry in Malaysia Country Down, God Moving Up 

The country, the crime rate up requiring tighter security for house holders. Those pushing towards full Islamic law etc, rising up opposing crosses on front of churches and bibles being destroyed. Against that background I experienced some of the most amazing meetings I think I have seen there.

One Hundred Ten To Twelve Year Olds 

You could hear a pin drop and then a huge crowd was at the front with almost all leaving speaking fluently in tongues. Quiet and still and the first to speak was one called the “monkey”, he can never sit still and into everything he shouldn’t. The pastor told this group if by next Saturday more had decided they wanted to be filled they could ask their teacher and join the 7-9 year group where I would be. The day after this meeting every child and teacher had asked to join the younger group next week. The first to ask to go down was a big boy who is solid muscle and no one in the class can stand against him, in his school he is a gang leader. All I can say is “to God you get the glory and I feel it such an honour”, how many older children volunteer to go in with a group of younger children especially as they have come out of that group themselves!!!

Children’s Pastors Promises Fulfilled

Before the above meeting God highlighted seven children to me who He had His call on. Kept back when others left the front God gave me one word for the seven and one for an individual. He was among the youngest, by far the smallest and younger of four siblings, God has for him a powerful ministry. Five years before when the pastor was called God told him He would raise up seven pastors under him who he would mentor. I didn’t notice the number God highlighted until pastor told me and he had counted them four times to be sure. Topping it, he told me the word God gave me for the seven was the exact same word God said over him five years ago. To top it he said all of the seven had come of age to come into this group when he took over so they have been with him for all of the five years.

Two Hundred And Fifty, Seven to Twelve Year Olds 

They were amazing, so hungry and I don’t count numbers but the children’s pastor’s wife told me that ninety five children were at the front to receive and the pastor said that practically everyone left speaking in tongues. I instructed and used those who had been filled the week before to do all the ministry with these new ones. They rose to the challenge beautifully and I was able to go around to each one as they ministered and check the one they prayed for was speaking in tongues and then encourage them that indeed it wasn’t me that God answered but it was their ministry and prayers that God was answering. We concluded with God giving me prophetic words for six more children.

Children’s Ministry In Japan

God Covers My Mistake

Due to a slight oversight on my part, I ended up landing in Japan going straight into Tokyo and to the Christian School I am involved in. I had a wonderful time ministering with no hint of tiredness or lack of concentration. But I did feel God’s anointing and a lot of children responded for prayer at the end.

Should It Happen To A Children’s Ministry

I have been involved for a number of years in a small church in the south that makes for a long day. It involves rising at four, catching three trains each way and getting back early evening. This time the pastor told me that every year they take the message God sends through me as the direction for the coming year.

Children’s And Youth Day

This year had a bonus, over thirty attended plus a few adults who were not related at all to the youngsters but came because they wanted to. All were so hungry you could literally feel them drawing the word out of you so the messages became longer than I planned in my notes as God added more as we went along. Then all ages responded together for prayer after the sessions.

May Camp

God Brought Them – Usually we have gone to a conference centre but because of cost it was decided to hold it in my host church. The result was to reach children and young teens from six different churches four of which we have not had contact with before. We didn’t advertise or send out invites it was friends inviting friends and God using the Japanese trait of trust and over forty attended.

They All Became One – Coming from so many different backgrounds to begin with some were like fish out of water but being willing to step out of their comfort zones they were soon all praising, worshipping and responding the same. I never saw them getting into their own clicks but a stranger looking in would not be able to tell that they were from different church backgrounds.

The Army Is Rising Up – We finished camp with a very different looking group than we started. During the course of all the meeting I think everyone had responded for prayer for something and some every time. The final meeting was awesome as almost everyone left their seats during a Godly silence making a commitment to God to walk in the things they had responded for during earlier sessions.
