Melbourne, Australia 1996 – 16,000 people came to the week long revival.

Revival Ministries International – Australia Meetings

The Australian office commenced operations ten years ago as a result of an amazing outpouring of the Holy Spirit across this nation that was highlighted by meetings which continued to exceed capacity crowds. In May 1996 in Melbourne, we saw history in the making when over 16,000 people registered for a week long time of refreshing and 2600 people made decisions for Christ.

Churches closed their offices and brought all their staff and encouraged their congregations to “soak” in these meetings. People came off the streets, into the venue not knowing what was going on and gave their lives to Jesus. “Changed – never the same again.

On Friday 17th May, over 11,000 people attended the final service of the meetings, with last minute overflow areas set up in the foyer, and 700 people responded to the altar call. The people were shouting at 105db (the Production men informed us that a 727 is 102 db at 100 meters).
The album ‘Revival Down Under’ was recorded at this meeting. Thousands also attended meetings in Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Sydney.

Testimony from Ps Allan Meyer, Careforce Church, Mt Evelyn

Some years ago, Rodney Howard-Browne held a series of meetings at the Melbourne Entertainment Centre. To some the meetings were controversial. For our family they were a turning point. At that time a fascination with the drug scene had claimed my youngest son and he had been gone from our home for two years. We invited him to come and see what was happening. He accepted the invitation. Within 15 minutes of being in the atmosphere of worship his hands were in the air. Later that day one of the visiting Americans spotted him sitting alone in the front row. He was prayed for, spent an hour and a half on the carpet, and within days began moving his stuff back home. He is now married and a successful business man and father, attending Crossway. We will forever be grateful to God for His encounter wtih our family through the Rodney Howard-Browne meetings some years ago.

Ps Allan Meyer, Careforce Church, Mt Evelyn

Rodney has a genuine love for God and people. I am sure his ministry Revival Ministries International will be a tremendous blessing to you.

Good News Vizag • January 10-14, 2006 • Visakhapatnam, India

Good News Vizag • January 10-14, 2006 • Visakhapatnam, India ( 50,000 Decisions for Christ! )
January 10-14, 2006 we ministered in Visakhapatnam, India, for five days in a mass soul-winning crusade called Good News Vizag, organized for us by an American evangelist, Mark Swiger, who hThousands gathered each meeting to hear Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne and his team members from Tampa, Florid. as conducted more than 50 crusades all over India.

It was quite an ordeal just to get there, taking more than 50 hours in all, and included an unscheduled 12-hour wild ride, from about 4:30 PM on Saturday to nearly 5 AM Sunday, from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam with a driver who did not speak English–a 670 kilometer (420 mile) drive that should have taken no more than nine hours–most of it was spent trying to keep our driver awake!

We dodged buses, taxis, trucks, motorbikes, cows, goats, and people with plenty of near-misses! Fortunately, we know that our lives are in God’s hands and the angels are watching over us at all times, until the Lord is done with us here on earth, and so we can afford to walk in peace and joy in almost any circumstance!

The crusade workers stayed up all night to greet us and when we arrived they welcomed us with showers of flower petals and fireworks in the middle of the road, stopping all traffic while they did it! It was certainly an arrival to remember!

When we arrived we found out that there were several Pentecostal churches involved and they held meetings for the Christians in the mornings. We preached a couple of times in the morning and so did Eric Gonyon, our international crusade director.

It was a good opportunity to minister to the Christians on revival and see them impacted by the power of God. Thousands of people felt the anointing of God for the first time ever. They were filled with the Holy Spirit, speaking in other tongues, shaking, cryThe joy on the face of this lady is testimony to healing changing power of God under the ministry of Dr Rodney Howard-Browneing, and laughing. Many children were powerfully touched by God as well. There were even pastors who fell out under the power of God for the first time ever in their lives.

Even though the meeting was scheduled at a bad time, in the middle of a major Hindu festival, we still had a great response, with 50,000 people giving their lives to the Lord. Many people were baptized in the Holy Spirit and many were wonderfully healed and delivered–some of excruciating pain that they had had for many years.

Many, many people reported seeing a light or a ball of fire coming toward them and hitting them at the moment they received their healing!
