Here are notes relating to some of the things we have seen the Lord do ...
~ ALL GLORY to the Lord ~
12 October 2002 - Parañaque
1700hrs Iris finds large quantities of blood in her urine - it increases to be a Very heavy discharge requiring her to go to the toilet to pass it every 2 minutes. We go to a clinic with a sample, and they examine Iris but will wait till the next day for results of pathology tests before treating her. Ian prays for her when we get home to bed. During the night, she has to go to the toilet and is challenged as to what she thinks will be the outcome. She believes she will be healed. In the morning, she is totally healed.
A gynecologist and pathology tests later confirm this to be true. Praise God !!
21 Dec 2002 - Mandaluyong
We went to a children's Christmas party in a squatters area in Mandaluyong at the invitation of Iris's friend
On returning to the "home" in the squatters area, I prayed for many adults as led by the Holy Spirit - Our God is awesome! He showed many things wrong with adults - sicknesses etc. One couple walked in and immediately I knew that one of them had a problem with the left hand side of the face. I enquired and the lady said "oh - that's my husband", - he was healed after prayer. Another lady entered, and immediately I knew she had a problem with her thyroid gland - this was confirmed. We believe she will be healed, but have not confirmed it yet.

One old lady said of Ian "he has very good hula" ... which roughly translated means "fortune telling / divining" !!! We put her straight on that fact - 1 Corinthians Ch 12
23 Dec 2002 - Parañaque
We gave a small Christmas party in the park for selected disadvantaged kids and mothers from the local (Eldorado) squatters area.

Please excuse me for being so presumptuous as to give this to you. ( I don't often do this ! )
12 January 2003 (Sunday) - Mandaluyong
Tues morning :- Received a text message saying that he had been discharged from hospital.
12 January 2003 (Sunday) - Parañaque
I eventually plucked up the courage, and asked her if I could pray for her and tell her what I believe I had been "told". God is gracious - she accepted that it was a true word for her, and her whole life has since changed for the better, and she is now a much happier lady also. Fortunately for me she now regards me as a friend !
13 January 2003 - Parañaque
As I was praying, and thinking about you this morning, I had the following picture in the spirit : I saw a carrot, lying on it's side, and it was sliced into discs. I believe that the Lord would say to you that you have allowed yourself to become fragmented in the spirit. That He would have you to lay aside those things which are not of Him.
"Following all kinds of doctrines" also came to mind.
She responded with amazement, affirming that it was timely and true.

Iris has been telling others that Ian has a gift of healing ~
M (~ a 25yo lad who could not
sleep for weeks) came from one of Iris' client companies for ministry.
27 February 2003 W (From that Company) and Husband R visited us and reported M was healed and slept the night of the ministry, and ever since has been fine.
25 February 2003 - Parañaque
- well ...... she sure found out what deep ministry was (many tears later).
I hope she has a revelation that God is real, and that He gives us a WILL or a WON'T.
10 August 2003 - Parañaque (Sunday)
13-14 Sept 2003 - Parañaque (Weekend)
We had a young family (S, E and I) stay with us after Iris and they returned from a retreat at Laguna
Prayed for the couple and the Lord
revealed some things for them ~ they later testified in church
At church (Word International Ministries - Parañaque) ~ Lord showed Ian that a lady had something wrong with the LHS of her face - when approached she said YES - pray for me! Apparently she had some hearing problem.
18 Sept 2003 - Parañaque (Thursday Evening)
For one lady He showed me something that happened in her childhood (I saw a man sitting beside her as she lay on a bed - I believe that she was inappropriately touched ... ) I believe that she made a vow, even at that age, and that it has held her in bondage ever since. I believe this was the key to her ongoing health and weight problems.

The following testimony appeared in the Sunday church bulletin - somewhat to Ian's embarrassment.
Testimony from the Retreat .... Cold and Detached By: Sis. Sharee Mangundayao
My husband and I gave up our calling with our ministry and focused on our careers. Four months at work, I got pregnant and was diagnosed for threatened abortion, I was bedridden. It was one of the most difficult events of my life ‑ sore back, leg cramps, I was weak and feeling totally incapacitated. We left for Dasmarifias, Cavite after 2 spat living with my sister in law and my aunt. We rented a humble place to make full use of single income and have some peace of mind. Though partitioned by concrete walls, it was the smallest place I ever lived. There, we were still not saving with no church to go, it was the most testing times of our lives indeed.
We missed serving the Lord so much over the years. I, especially since I was left alone always with no one to share my thoughts with. I was lonely and was feeling so pathetic of myself. I so struggled to pick my feet up. I knew I had a business with the Lord left unsettled. I knew my heart was not right with someone in the Church and I knew that was the reason why we cannot go back serving Him.
One night, God answered our 1st prayer. His uncle's `bodega' was made brand new for us. He even had us rent it half of what we paid in the farther Cavite – 2nd answered prayer. He endorsed us to a Church in Alabang but we failed to feel God's prompting to commit there despite both our and that Church's efforts. We were still apprehensive of everything.
One Sunday, we decided to attend Church in BLS. With no worries to seeing the person I was running away from and no care about the controversies, we did not only enjoy being there but we felt so at home, as if we never left. I should say, the inner part of me had jump started again. With the conviction to be used by God in the ministry again, we struggled for answers on how to recommit as other concerns arose. So much worries where to sleep, how to sleep, where to eat and what to eat with the little money we have - we couldn't commit. With our son in mind, we continued to pray about it.
Finally deciding to re-commit completely was by far the most supernatural experience of my 30 year life. The way God addressed our questions were totally amazing! Here it goes.
After attending a 3 day retreat in Majayjay Laguna free of charge, I was in the group with a fair, intelligent woman. "Forgiveness" issues were tackled and exchange of short stories after and just before the discussion ended, I knew I had been released of my "forgiveness" problem with our investor. My attending BLS Church again made me realize that the sting on issues with him had come to pass. It was Sis. Lui Joson's words that made me realize that. That was liberating indeed!
The more awesome thing was that, the night we came home from retreat, Sis. Iris Byfield, also totally unfamiliar to us invited us to sleep over for the night. The following morning before Sunday church service, her husband claimed that God had spoken to him with a message from the Lord. Bro. Ian spoke words never had entered our minds. Words nothing more than precise! It was too exact! Nothing was left to be questioned. We broke into tears, extremely released, relieved ...freed. With all plans surrendered, sense of freedom and no hint of anxiety, our 3rd prayer was answered from Sis. Luis offer. All for free, board and lodging !
Praise the Lord and Glory to God! All those years, my stubbornness had left me in the dark. Cold and detached. I chose to do it the hard way, paid no heed to His calling to forgive and for that we struggled a great deal. Having God in my heart was the only anchor I had left. It was still strong though my boat was lost at sea. I just couldn't let go of Him. I love Him more that my life. And to be His servant and once again be used for His kingdom is the only thing I know I am capable to give.

Ian: I am reminded how lucky Australians really are, as I see the very young children (4- 5 yrs old) heading off to school at 5.00 - 5.30 AM in the morning. They must have been awake since 4.00 AM. I see little children around 5yrs of age carrying 10-20 litre water bottles back to their dwellings in the squatters areas.

Our maid Jocelyn, (who has been attending a church in another suburb for some months) surprises us by telling us that she will be baptized today. She was previously a Catholic, but her mother is Pentecostal.

See September 18th. I chanced to meet Ps Ed's father - asked how he was. He said that he was being healed, previously he had stomach pains and had to get up at least 4 times each night. Now he was much better !

I tell Jamal - a Muslim friend (the guard at the building which houses our church) - he says "IMPOSSIBLE"
Our maid Jocelyn has a friend - Michele, who has been doing
it a bit tough lately.
"Hi ! A pregnant lady @ car garage last Saturday with swollen face and toothache, can not take medication because she's pregnant. Prayed for her. Healed 15mins later, - still healed! God IS Good !"
At 0834 hrs I received a reply from Michele:
... Michele lives just around the corner
from the garage.
Jocelyn and I visit Michele, - guess where she has toothache -
I pray for her - and she too is healed !!! (She's the monkey in the tree Pictures 2004 Page )
I "drag" (Muslim) Jamal to see Faye - she tells him the story in Tagalog
