Praise the Lord! To be a member in a spiritual church and grow in spiritual life is my desire and prayer ever since I received Jesus
Christ as my personal Saviour. As an answer to prayer, God has blessed us with Bethel New Life Christian Fellowship when we migrated to Australia in 2007.
1 Thessalonians 5:23,24 says, “May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and He will do it.”
I pray that God will give us a stable and steadfast spirit to love one another and to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, to be a witness in the church and community. I thank and praise God that He is enabling us to grow and minister to Him as a family. Glory be to God!
“The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.” – Psalm: 34:10
It was God’s plan for our family to be part of this church. When I was working in Singapore and about to move to Australia, I had a chance to meet Pastor John de Britto in 2007. Through him, I came to know about BNLCF church. When I migrated to Australia in January 2008, from the very first week, I started to attend this church till this day. Since we moved here, God is blessing our family through BNLCF church in all aspects of our life. We are growing spiritually, and our soul is strengthened through the ministries conducted by our church. When I decided to get married in 2009, God blessed our marriage through our dear Pastor John and his wife Pastor Isabel Britto. Moreover, God blessed us with two children. In 2013, God blessed us to build a new home. We can’t forget the encouragements and guidance of our Pastor and family during that time. In 2018, my wife Jennifer, met with an accident, following that she went through a very difficult time for the following two years. During this time, God comforted and strengthened us through the prayers and physical
support of our church brothers and sisters. We praise God for the wonderful fellowship. We are so thankful to God for our spiritual journey and ministry that the Lord has given through our church. God has used and blessed us, and He will continue to do so until Christ returns.
Praise and glory be to the name of our Lord. God has been so gracious, merciful, and loving to our family. We feel so blessed to have the privilege to call Him our Father. It’s been a roller coaster
ride, but He’s been with us throughout our journey as our Shepherd.
Ever since we moved to Melbourne, we were longing to be part of a church and it has always been in our prayers. Today, as a family, we feel so blessed that God has placed us in the right place to be part of the BNLCF family. Our lovely Pastor, his beautiful family and BNLCF family has always been so welcoming.
Our son loves his Sunday School, which is what as a believer we want for our children, to cherish and nourish in God’s word right from their young age. We take this opportunity to thank our beloved Pastor and the ministry team for their wonderful work to glorify our Lord. May our Lord God bless you all and your families. Praise be to God
