The South Pacific House of Prayer to be established at Langley Hall
Jenny's great grandfather Bishop Henry Langley outside Langley Hall just after it was built in 1904.
The righteous man shall live by faith - Romans 1:17
We are praising the Lord that the owners of Langley Hall have given us extended time to raise the money to purchase the property. They recognize our difficulties with first the bushfires and then the coronavirus. Thank you to those who have donated since we launched the appeal for $2.47M. It is not possible for me to write to each one of you personally, but I have been deeply moved by your sacrificial giving. Trevor Radbone our Financial Administrator, has faithfully sent tax-deductible receipts and thanked you on our behalf. He has had difficulty tracing a few of you, so if you have not received your receipt, please email Trevor at firstname.lastname@example.org. While we have been waiting on the Lord for the release of the further $2M, He has been greatly encouraging us. We have been given further understanding of His purposes for the establishment of the South Pacific House of Prayer at Langley Hall. We have also been having discussions with our Advisory Council; Jamie Pryor, Roy Funu, Dexter Low and Glenn Rowbotham (see our brochure here) and are making preliminary plans as to the role we will have in Langley Hall. We appreciate the input that Ruth Webb, Ps Graham and Lois Barker and Rev John Steele, all from Bendigo, have given us, and have been supported by Sue Tinworth in Melbourne who has helped us see the important link between Bendigo and Melbourne. There is no doubt that the Lord is gathering a convergence of apostolic and prophetic giftings for His future plans in the South Pacific region.
Bendigo: The spiritual battle over Bendigo has been intense for many years. Not only is a mosque being built, but the Buddhists have built the largest temple in the southern hemisphere there, based on a stupa in Tibet. According to the agent for Langley Hall, the Buddhists regularly visited the property with the intent to purchase. Suddenly they felt not to proceed and when we enquired as to the timing of this, we found that it was about the same time the Lord spoke to us at the Watchmen Gathering on Kangaroo Island last October, that we were to take possession. Had the Lord not intervened, Langley Hall would probably now be a Buddhist centre. Noah: In the late 1980s the Lord spoke to me prophetically:'Revival will come to Australia and with it will come a great outpouring to the nations. You are to build like Noah, believing for rain you have never seen.' Noah was a man of strong faith and perseverance who heard and obeyed the voice of God. He was used by God at a time when the earth was filled with such wickedness, that the Lord said "Behold, I, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven, everything that is on the earth shall perish" - Genesis 6:17 Imagine receiving a word from the Lord like that! The Bible records 'But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord' - Genesis 6:8 Jesus referred to Noah when He spoke about His return. 'As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.' - Matthew 24:37-44 Last month a prophet spoke over me the exact words the Lord gave me in the late 1980s. It was a reminder that Jesus links the story of Noah and his ark to the certainty of coming prophetic events. This Passover all around the globe we are shut up in our houses, with a sense that we are waiting at the Mercy Seat, interceding for those suffering in the current global pandemic. Israel is in lockdown; nobody can go out. It has not been like that since Passover in Exodus! At the same time, some of us have been participating on Zoom in the Passover Perfume of Nations led by Watchmen for the Nations - the largest Passover gathering in history - 148 nations and 26 languages! We live in incredible times. Like Noah, we need to trust God, who despite persecution from the wicked generation in which he lived, obeyed God even though he did not understand. He had never seen rain, yet he spent 120 years preparing for it. At AHOPFAN we sense we are building for a day that has yet to come - a mighty outpouring of the rain of the Spirit. The Lord has now asked us to take up the mandate to buy Langley Hall and with others to establish the South Pacific House of Prayer. We don't understand it all, but we are obeying. Thank you for standing with us. Jenny Hagger AM Director AHOPFAN Inc.
