Service at Panlimsi village, near Pangi, Pentecost Island, with the overflow crowd
We encourage and support revival leaders on Pentecost Island regularly. That includes providing revival books and resources, Bibles, and helping pastors with high school fees for their children.
Pentecost Island, Vanuatu
Team Visit, July 2017
We returned with another small team of Stan and Daphne Beattie (my sister & Judith’s parents), Emily Staples from Riverlife (formerly Kenmore) Baptist Church, and my grandson Dante, in the photo here with Morrison, a school prefect, and son of hosts Jackson & Annette.
Riverlife church people gave generously to help with a guitar, a keyboard, and about 50 spectacles (helping older people read Bibles), and gifts of Bibles as well. Miraculously we were not charged excess baggage on any flight!

Emily, a nurse, spent hours helping in the local clinic, talking and praying with many people daily, and sharing in meetings, including her first ‘words of knowledge’ about healings needed. Everyone we prayed for reported that pain had gone (for some of them after a bit more prayer, and for some even before we started praying for them).
Stan and Daphne reunited with friends there, especially Jackson and Annette (who cared for their daughter Judith’s family with the 4 grandchildren) and Rolanson and Doneth and Grant who also visited their home near Rockhampton this year. Stan explored more possibilities for village water supplies and hydro power, and they both shared in meetings and prayed often with people.
Dante [former captain Kenmore High School, twice sportsman of the year, captain of Qld & Australian schoolboys volleyball teams competing in NZ, Singapore & Malaysia, Middle School Science & Senior School Physics awards, etc., Uni Power to Change worship leader] was a hit again with the youth and with his guitar in the meetings and in the high school at Ranwadi. We’re so blessed to see him growing in anointed leading of worship in churches and at university in Australia, and on mission in Vanuatu and in Maynamar/Burma.
Again our evenings were busy with meetings in three village churches and at Ranwadi College, their high school. Again we prayed with many people in each meeting, for many needs and empowering. Again they reported pain gone quickly – sometimes even before we prayed for them! See photos with brief comments on my Facebook album – with links to videos, such as in the evening service at the high school on https://youtu.be/acQjF125SR8.

Many people prayed for Jackson this year and on Sunday he testified to the miracle that his blood count tested normal after a long period of high levels of diabetes. One lady suffering severe asthma was flown to hospital in Port Vila where she died three times but was revived.
We ‘happened’ to be there when the new MP (Member of Parliament) Silas Bule (formerly the principal of Ranwadi College) came to give Gideon New Testaments to all the primary and high school students, so we were involved in challenging them to read their new gifts regularly.
A moving time for us was as we prayed for local mission team leaders who will be going with Pastor Rolanson to other areas on Spirit-led and Spirit-filled evangelism and healing. God continues to open more doors for them into other areas. And so the Word of the Lord continues to spread in authority and power.

On our return, via Espiritu Santo island, we visited healing waters there. That was the island where Ferdinand de Quiros named the southern islands the Great Southlands of the Holy Spirit – Terra Australis del Espiritu Santo. That island retains its name of Espiritu Santo [Holy Spirit], and Australia the southern continent name.
Earlier in 2017, as a lady there with cancer prayed, God led her to dig in the sand near rocks on the southern beach by the airport road. Fresh spring waters began flowing there from among the rocks and brought healing, for her and many others who keep coming from many places – a reminder of healing waters in Jordan (for Naaman the Syrian general), and at Bethesda and the Pool of Siloam and of Moses with water flowing from the rock. People are warned that if they bring witchcraft there or sell the spring water they may die – some did that and died.
We are grateful that we have been able to assist and encourage the people of Vanuatu and see God touching and blessing so many.
We have invested into establishing a Revival Training Centre as a revival base to help equip revival team ministries.
