On 24th July, a truly international team represented by people from USA, Japan, Taiwan, China, Nepal, Australia and Singapore arrived in a spanking brand new airport in Yangon.
This is our 5th year in organizing a History Maker Conference in the city of Yangon, and this will perhaps be remembered as one which saw one of the greatest spiritual impact. Approximately 700-800 youths jammed packed together in the ground floor of an old Baptist church, in what can best be described as an overheated and overcrowded oven for History Maker Myanmar 2007!
The theme for this History Maker Conference was “Go Make Disciples!” - a prophetic call for the church to focus on discipleship and a battle cry to win souls. From the 1st keynote session a call for consecration and desperation for a move of the Spirit was sounded out. Various speakers namely Pastor Kelly (Singapore), Pastor Sharon (USA), Pastor Nakama (Japan), Sumire (Japan) and Eugene (Singapore), took the platform to preach God’s Word in the morning keynote sessions. In the afternoons, the meeting was divided into 3 workshops, namely the leaders’ tract (for youth pastors and leaders), the youth tract and a children ministry workers’ tract. On the final day morning, Ps Nakama preached up a storm and the conviction of God fell upon the people. At the end of the session, the crowd was on their knees and a desperate cry for a move of the Spirit resonated in the arena.
In the high impact evening meetings, Ps Richard preached and the atmosphere was saturated with a tangible anointing and presence of God. There was such an atmosphere of faith and expectation in that place that even after the altar call and ministry time was over, many people were coming forward to seek prayer for healing for various physical conditions.
The level of expectation determines the level of breakthrough. If we just expect people to jump around and have a fun youth meeting, then that’s exactly what will happen. But if we prepare ourselves and expect God to do miracles, signs and wonders, healings, then God will do according to the level of expectation and faith in our heart!
And that was exactly what God allowed us to witness in this conference! There was this man who was in hospital for 10 days before the conference because of a diabetic condition. For 10 days the hospital there tried to stabilize his condition but medication could not help. On the second day of the conference, the man felt God touched him and a ball of light just hit him. He described himself as the type of person that never cries in public, but when God touched him, he broke down and wept. The next morning when he went for a medical checkup, he was totally healed! Praise God! With Him, all things are POSSIBLE!
By God’s grace, History Maker has been used as a tool to harness and unleashed a divine potential upon this nation that is currently so ravished by poverty and political uncertainty. A Singaporean missionary who has been pastoring in Myanmar for the past 7 years has noted the dramatic transformation since History Maker had come into this nation. Before, the churches were divided and fractured and youths from various churches did not come together for prayer and worship. History Maker has brought the youth of this nation together, and united them with a common vision to see revival in Myanmar; or as in the words of Pastor Mun Tung, that “Myanmar shall be a Christian nation!” Today, in the churches in Myanmar, History Maker Conference is the talk of the town and every local believer in the city knows about this conference and every year they look forward to it with great anticipation.
The spirit and heartbeat of History Maker Conferences is more than just young people singing and dancing to loud music, or fiery preachers who shout more than we speak. History Maker is about raising up a generation of young people who are so hungry for the power and presence of God that they lose all consciousness of being dignified before the King of Kings! History Maker is about empowering a generation of youths to be so sold out for Jesus that they will be willing to lay down their lives to see the Gospel preached to all nations, to see revival ignite in a dry and thirsty land!
God is assembling a team that is going to spread this fire of revival all across the globe, reaping a massive end-time harvest with 2 sickles! Get ready, get moving!
God is no respector of persons nor titles. If He can find a person who is desperate and hungry for revival, then a whole generation can be turned around. Revival can happen! Just as the fire of God fell in Myanmar, it can also fall in whatever nation you are reading this from! History Makers let's posture ourselves for this coming move and impact the lives of our friends with the power of the Gospel!
