Dr. Irene Faulkes was born into one of the earliest Pentecostal families in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Her father was reared in Estonia in the Russian Orthodox Church. He fought with the British Army in France in World War I where he was converted under the preaching of Gypsy Smith from England. Her mother had a Methodist background, going back some generations.
Irene has been ministering for Christ for over forty years, beginning in her teen-age years. She and her first husband, Cecil Bonney, pastored Assemblies of God churches in Australia for some years and were also involved in pioneering, Christian education and children's work. Her ministry of the baptism of the Spirit began to develop during those years. They became involved in the early Charismatic Move in the mid-sixties.
In answer to the Spirit's call they went to Indonesia where they ministered in thousands of Churches seeing virtually everyone revived with hundreds of thousands of believers baptised in the Holy Ghost, miracles of healing and a dead babe in the womb born alive. For over thirty years this ministry saw God "confirm the Word with signs and wonders and gifts of the Holy Ghost". The book of Acts lives again! On some occasions, people at death's door were miraculously raised to life and health. On one occasion a child dying of stomach cancer was instantly healed on a Word of Knowledge. When his mother returned home she found him well. Irene stayed with them four years later. The child was thriving. The lame walked. Deaf and dumb were healed. Irene also ran a Bible School there.
Once in a denominational church 100 years old, in the meetings the first altar calls ever were given. One night, 1,200 came forward to accept Christ, weeping as they came. A mad girl, who barked like a dog continually, also deaf and dumb, was healed. Many miracles took place. Such was the case wherever they went.
They had to return to Brisbane, Australia due to Cecil's heart trouble. Invited to become involved as Pastors with the growing Christian Outreach Centre, they were used in seeing many thousands baptized in the Spirit, speaking in tongues. This was an important feature of the move of God in Brisbane that affected much of Australia in the late seventies, where she also taught in their first Bible School.
She and Cecil left Australia and began to minister all over Singapore and Malaysia in the early years of the move of God there. This was in an Anglican Cathedral and churches, Methodist churches and seminars, Full Gospel Businessmen's meetings, home meetings, Mainline and Pentecostal churches. Often miracles and healings took place and hundreds were baptized in the Holy Spirit. Also, they ministered in Thailand, where a reported healing of cancer occurred. Also they visited the Philippines for ministry amongst the Episcopalians, A Bishop requested teaching on "How to be born again" for his people. Hundreds received the experience and all, including the Bishop, were baptized in the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues. On a visit to England, they conducted a healing campaign in a London church, For the first time, the people saw many healings. This church embraced healing and was a few years later featured on Australian Television for its ministry. In 1987, Cecil went to be with the Lord. Their ministry had been to the super rich and famous, politician, well-educated and well-positioned in life and on the opposite end of the pole to the multitudes of the poor.
Cecil went to be with the Lord. Irene remarried, Peter Faulkes. In her ministry in Asia, healings, from cancer, heart trouble, madness and other diseases have been recorded. A child and a young girl raised from the dead. Once two gang leaders, murderers of many and rapists of hundreds of women made a stand for Christ. Crowds of people from all denominations in one meeting are filled with the Holy spirit, receive prophecies and some even begin to prophesy and the people are led into worship. She has ministered on Television. In all the ministry there is a major emphasis on the in-depth preaching and teaching of the gospel and the Word of God and manifestation of the nine gifts of the Holy Ghost. Peter involves himself in the Video, Writing and Audio Tape ministry. He also handles the extensive computer work after Irene types her writings. He is the organizer of the printing program for Irene's authorship. She has written books on, They Speak With Tongues, The Promise of The Father and Upon All Flesh, into its fourth edition, and many other writings.
They minister inter-denominationally in churches, sometimes seminars for Pastors, youth and women, in campaigns for the unsaved and those needing the baptism in the Spirit, Holy Ghost worship, Gifts of the Spirit, healing, deliverance, victory over sin or revival. Often Bible Schools or Seminaries request teaching ministry.
They do not solicit funds, being sent out by God on a basis of faith. Sometimes Jehovah-Jireh acts through His people who wish to give. Peter and Irene use their minimal pensions to go.
