We have now been in Singapore for one week. I have been teaching about 70 students in the Tung Ling Bible school, and the students were lively engaging and wonderful to be with. I came away from it feeling blessed and encouraged by the hunger and enthusiasm for God’s word. Thanks Tung Ling students and faculty for a great week!

We will be in Singapore for another two weeks holding a seminar on Hebrews and preaching in three more Churches. We have many friends here and it is a second home. Its also great to be in the warmth after the cold of Siberia!

Second update from Russia / Siberia

Read full article | No Comments

This is the beginning of my fourth week in Russia, and my third week in Siberia. I have been travelling thousands of kilometers by train, and air. It took 40 hours from Omsk to Irkutsk on 23/24th January. Before anyone thinks I did it for the sheer punishment, the fact is that internal flights in Russia are irregular and expensive. To do the same trip by air would have cost about 600 dollars and would have been routed back through Moscow, making it a long and expensive flight. The train itself cost 200 dollars, which the Church here paid for.

The Churches are vibrant and full of hungry Christians eager to know more about the Lord and His Word. On some of the meetings there has been a fragrant spirit of revelation and a sense of God’s powerful moving. On some occasions I have felt drained and a little dry, in need of spiritual refreshment. The Lord is faithful and His friendship so matchless and sustaining. The days are spent with groups of 30-40 ministers or Bible students, sharing truths from Galatians, Romans, the work of the Holy Spirit and life in Christ. There are always special moments during these series when hearts grow still and there is a deep work done in many lives. It is very humbling to be a part of this great work even if it is for such a short time. Thanks to all who pray.

The weather has been mild this week around minus seven, but things are set to get colder this week as we travel again another 12 hours from Kansk to Bratsk on Sunday afternoon 6th Feb. Larry Hill will join me there for two weeks and will take a big load of the ministry. That will be a special treat.

A study from Mark 11:1-33

Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!”, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”, “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”, “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

Recorded during the New Year Conference 2010-11 at the Christian Fellowship School, Liverpool between Thursday 30 December 2010 – Sunday 2 January 2011.

Update from Russia

I have been in Russia now for a week, having had a wonderful week of ministry with a precious Church in Sochi on the Black Sea.

Each day I sat with the leaders for a few hours and we shared around the scriptures. I have hardly ever seen such hunger to go deeper with God and such spiritual honesty and humility. Moreover these are mature men who have been leaders for many years.

Then in the evenings I shared the word with a congregation of several hundred, who wept and rejoiced and responded as the word was preached. My translator there was a close friend called Nick Markin who put all his heart into the matter. It was a great time and as often happens they have begged for another longer visit as soon as possible.

I flew last night (Sunday 16th Jan) from Sochi to Omsk via Moscow. Sochi was plus 10 degrees, while Omsk is minus 20. The brothers here all say it is so mild!!! I arrived and went straight into teaching a group of about 25 believers in a Bible school here. It is so inspiring to be with them and to share for a week about the life of Jesus. On Friday we take the trans Siberian railway east to Irkutsk, a journey which will take about 40 hours.

God is doing a great work in Russia.

Personality profiling: Which king are you?

Read full article | No Comments

Every man and woman was created to reign as Kings and Priests with Jesus. The gospel restores this great calling in the life of the believer. The lives of the Kings of Israel and Judah teach us how this is possible. Here we see the whole spectrum of human personality from the cleverest man who ever lived to the most evil dictator, from the man who was too nice to ever say “no” to the man who seemed to lack every trace of conscience. Come and look in the mirror of scripture and find God’s answer to every problem of human personality.

This course covers:

  • The anatomy of moral failure.
  • The blueprint of spiritual success.
  • Human personality: Its pitfalls (depression, anger, ambition) and its capacity to bear authority as Kings in the image of God.
  • Jesus the King of Kings; our example, and the perfect King.

October Update

The later part of 2010 saw Les and his wife Vicki travel to many places including the Arctic where they visited three different Churches on Baffin Island.  Many thanks for those who prayed for them during their time with with Faith Turner, as she took them to the Arctic Bay, Pond Inlet and Cape Dorset communities.

The Bible week with the Anglican Church in Arctic Bay was very blessed with well attended meetings and a great hunger for the Word of God.  The CDs of the meetings have been widely circulated amongst the Inuit and broadcast on the local radio as Les was interpreted into Inuktitut – making the messages accessible for all.

The weather was certainly not as cold as Siberia, some days it was warm enough  for them to take their coats off!

In September Les started a long missions trip starting in Singapore, then on to China and then to India. The courses in Singapore with the MBI were very blessed.
