Why I am involved as Crusade Director

I have personally known Ps. Gerald James for over 6 years. When you spend many hours in prayer with someone, you get to know their heart towards God and their desire to see the Kingdom of God grow, by going out to the lost, as in accordance with the command of Jesus:

Mark 16:15 ".. Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation". (NIV)

A vision

Some years back on three separate occasions I saw a vision, of a man stepping out of a boat and running on water. As he got out the boat and began to run, hundreds of people came running off the shore and began to run on the water, following the man who stepped out the boat.

The man who stepped out off the boat was Ps Gerald James. As he stepped out in faith, I knew people would support him and follow him in his Ministry. I told Gerald that it was up to him to step out, as I saw in the vision.

Having seen this vision, I knew he was called by God to evangelise, and I knew I had to be part of this Ministry. I knew the motive behind the Ministry. It was very clear. To see souls saved - SALVATION, the sick healed - HEALING, to see people set free from bondages - DELIVERANCE and to see people be impacted by the power of God - IMPARTATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

On the very first Crusade at Rooty Hill in 2002, the fruit of the Ministry became very real. Salvations, Healings, Deliverance, and people being touched by the power of God.

Bone reconstruction

In particular, despite witnessing some mighty miracles that evening and at every Crusade, none remains clearer in my mind that the little 9 year old boy, who 7 years earlier had his femur bone broken when a car crashed through their house.

His bone did not heal correctly and as a result; his leg was about 2 cm shorter than his other leg. When he came up for prayer all I saw was Ps. Gerald call for a chair, sat the boy down and lifted his legs out straight. It was very evident that one of his legs was short. Even more evident was the power of God, as when Ps. Gerald called out "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus," I saw with my very own eyes, the boys' leg grow to the same length as his other leg.

The little boy, his mother and I were amazed, having witnessed the healing and miracle, with all glory and praise going to Jesus.

Giving a helping hand

It is very easy to sit back and do nothing. However, when you take the step of faith and go out to the people to see God meet their needs, it takes a lot of time, effort, resources and finances. Having seen that Ps Gerald needed support, I am more than wiling to be involved, to see God move, to see people saved and set free from bondages.

I believe this ministry will be involved reaching people not only all over Australia, but also all over the world.

As we Christians unite, in one accord and one purpose, one in heart and mind, we will see God move mightily. That is when we will see thousands saved at each meeting. My involvement with ministry is to see God move mightily, to see thousands and thousands of people saved and healed. My part in this Ministry is also to see the name of Jesus magnified and glorified, with all praise and thanks going to Him for all that He has done for us. It such a little thing to do, to be obedient to the calling, when consideration is given to ALL JESUS HAS DONE FOR ME!

Romans 10: 13 - 15 "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved". How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!" (NIV)
