This winter will be the second time for Pastor Joseph Kingal from Papua New Guinea (PNG) to tour the land that hosts the Great Wall of China.
Ps Kingal is the founder and director of the Joseph Kingal Evangelistic Ministries based in Lae, PNG.
Albert Tobby, a student in Beijing and member of the conference organizing committee said in an e-mail that total participants is expected to be more than 250 foreign students from over 40 nationalities studying in China.
“This is an annual conference which is usually held every year around the same time. It is facilitated by a team of Christian student’s leaders known as the Central Steering Committee SCS.”
“SCS is divided into two sections. The northern group is Northern Regional Steering Committee (NRSC), in which a PNG student Jeffers Heptol is the President,,” said Albert.
This conference is the Northern Regions conference.
Pastor Joseph Kingal will be speaking in the main evangelistic night from Wednesday Feb 4th through Friday 6th Feb.
The ministry started in PNG as Christ Ministries back in 1991 by a group of University students at the PNG University of Technology in Lae.
In May 1997, the ministry was then registered as The Word, The Spirit and The Cross Ministries Inc with the registrar of companies.
The ministry now operates world wide as Joseph Kingal Ministries (JKM).
JKM is a soul-winning ministry based in Lae. It has an office in Suracase, New York, USA under Advance the Kingdom Ministries under the leadership of Evangelist Buck Stephens.
JKM plans to extend offices to Australia for the Television Ministries (Australia). JKM exists as a ministry to serve the entire Body of Christ and work in partnership with the existing churches in the harvest field.
Ps Kingal said, “We bring our nets and borrow the boats of the churches and go out fishing together. We gather the wounded (souls) on the streets and bring them to the Inn keepers (pastors) to nurse them. We catch the fish (souls) and give them to the pond keepers (pastors)”.
In 2007, Ps Kingal made his first trip to Shenyang, China. He was invited as a guest speaker by foreign students and workers during their annual summer conference.
TSCF (Tertiary Students Christian Fellowship) brother Jeffers Teargun Heptol who is now the President of International Christian Students in China introduced Ps Kingal to this group.
“It was a blessing to have Ps Kingal as the guest speaker during that time because people were blessed by the message that he brought”, Jeffers recalled.
“We were so grateful that Ps Kingal sowed into the Ministry here to pay himself for the return tickets to come and minister to the people”. Jeffers quoted what Ps Kingal shared on Freedom in Christ.
“God made things possible for the people of Israel to come out of Egypt (bondages of slavery). God was dealing with the people of Israel for the forty years in the wilderness to remove the nature of Egypt out of them”.
“When God leads you in life, He takes you through the pit to prison and then to palace”, Ps. Kingal shared taking biblical example of Joseph in the Bible.
During the visit in 2007, Ps. Kingal ministered to foreign workers and students from 30 different nations of the world in those three-day meetings.
The team in China again has the privilege to invite Ps Kingal for the second time for the annual winter conference in Beijing from Feb 4th to Feb 6th.
He will be ministering on “Living the Power of Love” as the theme.
According to the organizing committee secretary brother Albert Tobby (another TSCF brother) the number of participants are likely to increase and they are from forty different nations attending a single meeting.
Albert said the conference is very much anticipating for the Spirit of God to move mightily during the meetings.
“We have not only organized this meeting but also a Great Wall visitation by Ps Kingal and his team with the PNG students in China”, Albert said.
He said arrangements are already in place for Ps Kingal to have a fellowship with PNG students and workers at the PNG’s Beijing Embassy.
The conferences are hosted twice a year. One in the summer vacation and the other during the winter vacation.
These meetings are facilitated by some dedicated leaders in a team known as the Central Steering Committee.
Due to government regulations, these meetings are strictly open to foreign passport holders only.
Ps. Kingal will also hold prayer and counseling within the days programs. Baptism service will also be conducted by Ps. Kingal according to the availability of believers to be baptized.
The PNG Embassy is also planning to host Ps. Kingal and the students for a fellowship at the Embassy.
In an e-mail dated Jan. 24 2009, Ps. Kingal confirmed his trip to Beijing for the conference.
“According to the Conference Planners, there will be over 40 nations represented in this major conference. I am looking forward to this major conference. I never dreamt that I would speak to 40 nations in one major conference in a country such as China.”
“Susan and I value your prayers as I depart for Hong Kong and China on the 3rd February. I will also be imparting an anointing to all PNG students studying in China. This is the hour for PNG to take the nations with the gospel,” Ps. Kingal said in his email.
“I vividly remember the prophetic Word spoken to me in October 1993 at Unitech " I will take you to nations you never dreamt to go".
“God has never forgotten His Word over our lives. Therefore stay focused and walk in humility before Him daily. He will exalt you in due time.” Ps Kingal said.
This scribe and PNG students in China are looking forward to meeting Ps. Kingal with his team in Beijing and wishing them a safe journey.
