Step Towards Transformation
A.Can you have a close, personal, real relationship with God? After all, since He is our Father, shouldn’t we get to know Him well?
Every relationship begins with an introduction. Some people intimidate us when we first meet, perhaps because of their powerful reputation or strength of personality. But as we get to know them and embrace mutual thoughts and principles, our acquaintance blossoms into friendship.
Prayer, fasting and meditation, along with Bible study, are major keys for communicating with God and understanding His will. It’s important to know how to use them!
Through studying His Word, God introduces Himself so you can understand His character, love and mercy. But then, as King David did, we respond to Him through prayer, fasting and meditation, especially focusing on how we will relate to Him. For example, although David found great beauty in God’s laws, many people today reject them as burdensome or irrelevant. Yet David, called “a man after God’s own heart,” came to know God through his prayer,fasting and meditation. Likewise, as we grow in our relationship with God we can come to identify with David, and with the words of John, “By this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments!”

In 1999, the Lord touched Br. Melwyn in an unique-miraculous way. Br. Melwyn was paralysed and during this illness, he was witnessed by a believer, about the Word of God, which stirred up his faith to receive complete- miraculous healing. In 2000, Br. Melwyn gave his life to Jesus. In 2002, After graduating from RHEMA (INDIA), Br. Melwyn knew by experience the impact of understanding and acting upon the principles in the Bible. One of the simple but impacting truth that he discovered in his Bible study at RHEMA (INDIA) was that God wants us to be a witness in every area of our life. God put on his heart to witness this life changing truth of the Word of God to different sections of people and also to raise up witnesses for Christ. Thus Witness Ministries was founded. Br. Melwyn is basically called to teach the body of christ. He is now pastoring churches at Navi Mumbai and Thane District along with his wife Pastor Ruth [Hazel] Misquitta who is also a worship leader and walks in the calling of a prophet.
