LABUAN – The Life in the Spirit Seminar (LSS), which was organized by the English Prayer Group of the Blessed Sacrament parish here on Sep 7-9 attracted an encouraging response.
The seminar, with theme “Ignite the Flame Within”, was facilitated by full time by a Catholic lay missionary, Jude Antoine.
Among the participants was a group from Brunei Church in Seria. The local participants included parishioners from both the English and Bahasa Malaysia speaking groups, and students from the local colleges and institutions.
The talks on New Life, God’s Love, Transformation and Ministry through Inner Healing and Baptism of the Holy Spirit have touched many.
Antoine reminded the attendees in no uncertain terms “No one can force you to be renewed or to change if you do not surrender or submit to the Holy Spirit!”
Those who testified later during the sharing session spoke of receiving the ‘gift of tongues’ and experiencing ‘personal miracles’.
It was indeed a blessed time for the LSS participants and a sure sign that God continues to bless the island parish and her faithful. – Gerard Lean
