“Bryan did a training that was practical and reproducible.
“First and foremost, he demonstrated the love of Christ toward our neighbours. As a result, many participants came to understanding that they didn’t love these neighbours and repented of this. Several churches began praying each week for their neighbours. A nation-wide association of fellowships started fasting and praying for these people on the first Friday of the month.
“After the training, several participants reported they had started using the pracitcal sharing techniques Bryan taught, beginning from the things our neighbours and Christians hold in common.
“A number of us have decided to invite Bryan to a gathering (perhaps next year) where regional leaders from all parts of the country, from various denominations, will get this training.
“Bryan did more than just teach and train. He went further and, with many examples, encouraged us to see that our neighbours can be reached with the Gospel. He shared his vision that the Holy Spirit is working in this part of the world, and that we may see a movement take off.
“Thanks again for contributing into the lives of our people, Bryan! May God bless your ministry. We hope to see you again and minister together to the unreached in this region.”

“We have been blessed by the input of Asia Pacific Discipleship Trust to GraceWay Church. The FFF ministry has been an effective vehicle for reaching out to immigrants in our city, and their various outreach publications have been excellent resources in this regard. Bryan’s passionate vision has also been a real inspiration. I unreservedly commend this organization.”
Pastor Graham Wilson
“The APDT is a credible Christian ministry and at the Tabernacle we have greatly valued our partnership with the ‘Our Neighbours’ movement and the input and ministry of Bryan Johnson and the FFF initiative in particular. This has been of significant support to us as we continue to grow as a community in reaching out in love to our Muslim neighbours here in NZ. Thank you!”
Senior Pastor, Auckland Baptist Tabernacle
“Bryan, I am writing to sincerely thank you for conducting the X-Cultural Workshop for the churches of Hawera at our Baptist Church recently.
“You and your whole team were a joy to work with. No tension, great team work, high standard of presentation. It was an undoubted success for the approximately 50 people who attended from the various churches. We look forward to you continuing this journey with us in Hawera.
“An unexpected benefit for our small Baptist Church (35 members) was the fillip it has given to our people. There is a definite sense of expectation now, as to what the Lord might do through us. From the teaching and testimonies you and the team brought, I believe the church is lifting. We are sensing more of God’s spirit and look forward to continuing the relationship with you.
“We have a real desire to connect with people of other faiths and ethnicities and look forward to getting to know them in a deeper way. We are keen to show God’s love and trust the saving power of Jesus will have an eternal impact, as you have given us the tools to talk deeply with and love our “neighbours” here in Hawera.
“May the Lord continue to watch over your life and ministry.”
Pastor Paul Grant
“Hey brother Bryan, and Enoch, Tonight as I was going bed the Lord told me today’s meeting was to get me ready to pray for the Muslims in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Lord, said to me, ‘you are an ex-Muslim, and what are you going to do about the free gift that I’ve given you?’ I said, ‘Lord, I was going to be an evangelist and stand with your brother, and come along to the prayer event to help pray for a vision for Muslims to see Jesus and come to him, because many years have gone by now since I met the Lord.
So I was on my knees, and wow I spoke in tongues, and then found myself sharing the gospel with a Muslim brother in Auckland on skype, and I sent a book to him. I hope you got my 2 dollars for that book. If not I’ll bring it along to the prayer event…. thank you Lord for the word you shared that sparked a fire in my spirit so tonight I’m praying in the realm of glory.
God bless you. I hope to sort out a taxi for that prayer event for me to attend. My cellphone number is 02X XXX XXXX – keep in touch. I’m free all this week so bless you Jesus name. I stand at the ready with you my brother.

“Dear Bryan, God bless you and your wife and family for 2021! The best is yet to come, and you will go from glory to glory. We often share your testimony. You are an inspiration for us all.
After meeting you late last year we prayed that God would hear our prayers, and give us Muslim friends.
We started the year great, and met a Muslim family from HXXXX, (originally from Iraq). They came on the farm to buy something and we get along well together. We visited them last week and they visited us too. Their oldest son (who is born in NZ) loves talking about spiritual things, and is even reading books about other religions as he started doubting his own faith. They were quite impressed when my husband ‘H’ showed them the Quran we received from you.
What a perfect timing.
The son expressed a keenness to become friends with us (i quote his words) and states that he loves it that we are people of faith. They all speak Arabic and the son also speaks English.
So what a brilliant start. God is so mighty and faithful.
We will be in touch soon to seek some more advise!

“Dear R and M
Reading all your wonderful adventures in Christ is both uplifting and sad too—it’s so sad to read about what Muslims do to family members who come to Christ. It is very, very upsetting. I know of some other cases thru’ a friend who ministers among Muslims here in NZ.
The APDT have developed a range of teaching materials mainly based on the many times Jesus is mentioned in the Koran. I can get them to send these resources to you if you’d like to have them for your dear friends.
Very Best Regards,
