We enclosed our testimony for the glory of God. We have been in the fellowship for a short while now after leaving you and the fellowship in 1997. I want to thank God for bringing us back to the fellowship.
We believe God gave us a message of restoration to His Word through a godly man, Bro. Bill Branham, who knew the Lord and loved His Word. But sad to say that many followers of his have created a “movement” that no longer looks to the Lord but to him (the prophet Branham) and his sermon messages and quotes. This resulted in chaos and strife among the groups. That’s the reason why we have decided to leave “this movement”, a "school of chaos", where only the sermon messages are being taught and believed, and because of the stand and position the people have taken which are unrealistic. We felt, after staying too long in “this movement”, we had begun to slavishly imitate or parrot some well-known quotes or phrases of Bro. Branham in agreement and in taking side with the people so that we would be accepted within the group. By God's grace, Wendy and I have been always looking around to see where the anointing of God is resting at this present moment and we want to fellowship with all who walks in the light (1John 1:7). Please forgive us for all the foolishness and blindness that happen to us because of disobedience to God. Pray that God gives us wisdom to understand and know His ways.
Thank the Lord for bringing us back in fellowship and for the prayers of the brothers and sisters.
God bless you and all at home.

Greetings in Jesus wonderful Name,
My name is Wendy. I come from a family who worships idols and embraces Taoism. Even though I studied in a mission school, Christianity never struck my mind. I was working in Kuala Lumpur when a colleague of mine witnessed to me about the Lord Jesus. I accepted the Lord and was baptized in a Baptist Church in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In September 1988, I decided a change in my career and I made my way to Singapore to work in a Japanese MNC and got my permanent resident status in January 1989 and decided to stay put here. I found a nearby A.o.G. Church to worship. Later I was trained in evangelism and had gone to mission trips in North Thailand and Indonesia. Working with a group of Mandarin speaking colleagues, I desired to reach out to them by bringing them to the Chinese Fellowship outings. It was through one of these outings that a dear sister introduced me to Bro. Lawrence, and from there everything’s history as the saying goes.
I followed my husband to fellowship at Prophetic Revelation Bible Study Fellowship and was rebaptised in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ by Bro. Gan in 1994. We had our son, Nathanael in December 1995. I thanked God for giving us a healthy baby (named Nathanael), even though the doctor was worried for me because of my age.
In December 1997, at a time when my husband, Lawrence, was very low in spirit because of the passing away of his father, that a minister from Sydney, Australia, came to invite us to a convention that was being held in Malaysia. This was the beginning of many ills and we soon left Bro. Gan’s fellowship. Later the same minister came to us and encouraged us to “just stay home on Sunday and listen to Bro. Branham’s message and there’s no need to fellowship.” He even told Bro. Lawrence “to be responsible for his wife where he brings her to fellowship”. We believed all these and really stayed away from fellowship. He gave us books that were not edifying to read. By and by our walk with the Lord eventually started to drift further and further away. We continued going for a few years but only when there was a convention. Sometime later the believers there were split into two groups. People started calling us to attend their conventions and we went from one to the other. Soon we stopped going entirely as we have grown weary by the whole of "this movement".
All this time, God was teaching us something. The LORD led us into learning some important truth in the Word and He encouraged us and gave us a direction and purpose to our life. We stayed home for a while until we were invited to a convention here in Singapore. After going for two conventions and months of fellowshipping, we told ourselves this was not the place. We stayed away again. We asked God for a place to worship where the Word of God is preached without compromise. We had this feeling of rejection but we do not want to be branded as message-believers, where the prophet is being highly elevated and exalted, that is what denominations have termed such “message-believers” “Branhamites”. We’ll rather be Bible-believers, staying true to the Scriptures.
One night I had a dream that I was traveling in a moving train, sitting all alone by myself. Then came Bro. Gan and his wife to the same carriage. I was too shy and embarrassed to look at him at first. Then he started speaking to me, “I heard that you have left the other side.” Replying, I said, “I thought of going back to your fellowship.” “Oh! In that case, I will plan something for you,” he said. Then I woke up from my dream.
Some weeks after the Chinese New Year of this year 2006, we plucked up our courage to return to the fellowship that we had wandered off. From now on we just want to get right with God, walk close to Him and wait patiently for His coming. Thank God for his loving kindness and faithfulness for guiding us back to His path. We had learned a lesson through our own mistakes and we had failed repeatedly in our attempts to please God. We know God has a glorious purpose to fulfill whatever maybe the failures of His children. Therefore, we are learning from our failures, which may have been a part of God’s perfect plan to teach us a few unforgettable lessons as we walk with Him and always readily acknowledged our failures before Him.
It’s truly wonderful to be a child of God and never again can we doubt the love of God who has faithfully saved us by his mercy and grace.
We give God the Glory due to His Name.
