What others are saying about the ministry of 
Howard Sands and 
Beautiful Feet Task Force

I have known Pastor Howard Sands for the past 30 years. Howard is a man who has seen an open door from God to serve as a missions facilitator and has "stepped out of the boat" at Jesus' command and established Beautiful Feet Task Force, an organization that has introduced many lay Christians to the thrill of serving God on a short-term mission adventure. Those who go have not only had an opportunity to win souls overseas, but have returned with a passion to continue to support missions both in prayer and finances. May I warmly commend pastor Howard Sands to you.

I have been privileged to observe this extraordinary ministry from its very roots to what God has made it today and find Howard’s ministry reaching more and more people in Australia and especially the sub-continent building up people, starting churches and holding seminars to equip the Saints for the work of the Ministry. I highly recommend this ministry to you.

I have known Howard Sands for the past 17 years, as a friend, and associate. Howard pioneered and pastored a church in Canberra, which is going strong today.  I have been to India with Howard three times on short-term outreaches, teaching on church planting, leadership, and miracle crusades. Howard, through his ministry of Beautiful Feet Task Force, has been going to India for the last 20 years, as well as other countries.  These trips have seen countless thousands saved, people healed through the miraculous power of God, churches planted, and leaders trained.  I can assure anyone that Howard is very accountable with all he does on these outreaches, always aiming at an outcome, and fruit for the kingdom.  Howard is an excellent preacher, and motivator, always full of enthusiasm for the Lord.  He is a good man, full of the Holy Ghost, with a great family.  His wife, Joy, and his two children all love Jesus and are a credit to Howard.  It is not uncommon for signs and wonders, healings, etc., to follow the preaching of God's Word through Howard.  I highly recommend my friend Howard to anyone wanting to use his services for the Kingdom.

Rev Sands has a very unique ministry to train the grass root level ministers and those who want to live a victorious life. We have watched him for years ministering to our ministers in the pioneer stations of North India and also to the new believers who have come to the faith from other faiths - and he simply helps each one to grow to be a matured Christian to do what God wants a believer to do  - do His work on earth. He is very fruitful and powerful.

In 1988 I came into contact with Brother Howard Sands of Australia and found him to be a young man of total commitment to the proclamation of the Good News, that Jesus sets free men and women from the bondage of sin and sickness and enables them to live as witnesses in this world for Him.  In him I discovered leadership qualities, with administrative abilities.  Ever since, he keeps visiting India with a team of like-minded brothers, helping various churches of different denominations resulting in the planting and growth of new churches.  Their preaching of the Word was always confirmed with signs following.  With all this he was quite a humble person, always careful to give glory and honour to God alone. I wish him all success in the days to come and his Ministries growing from strength to strength.

"On the  two occasions that I accompanied Pastor Howard Sands as leader of two separate teams to India, I am pleased that I experienced Howard as a man desiring to minister life to lost people through faith in Jesus Christ. His actions were bathed in prayerful guidance by the Holy Spirit with a genuine passion for saving souls, that the kingdom of God be increased through effective ministry of the gospel to those without hope. He also had a signs and wonders ministry as he flowed in the gifts. I am sure that Howard will always make a real impact on the lives of many, both inside and outside the church of Jesus Christ as he accepts opportunity in any field of ministry."

My name is Marcel Tap, and I am writing a reference for Ps Howard Sands and family. In their visit to Romania, Ps Howard traveled from Bucharest to Oradea, the city where me and my wife Jennifer live. We had a great time learning from him, and many students were encouraged when Ps Howard spoke at the Christian college, and in a couple of churches as well. Ps Howard is a great speaker and enjoys being around youth making them laugh and teaching them.

Yours sincerely,
Marcel & Jennifer Tap,

Dear Friends,

I have known brother Howard Sands from his trips to India and his ongoing good friendship with my dad. I have to say, that Howard has also visited my church here in the United Kingdom.

Howard has always shown a passion for the things of God, what ever it maybe for that particular time. This zeal has taken him around the world and I would have to add on top of this that I have only heard good testimonies from around the world of what God had done through His servant. He visited us a couple of years ago and preached in our church and gave us a real hunger for the lost!

Howard is multi faceted! He has trained leaders, equipped evangelists, evangelised in town and cities, stirred up the church and I can go on and on, (most what I have seen in India).

Anyways praying for him earnestly and recognising his anointing I give my whole hearted endorsement.
