In the Office
Camp Meetings: January is a very busy month for us every year. The first week back at work involves final preparations for the camps. There is packing of books and office equipment, preparing camp programmes, accommodation lists, preparing and packing video equipment, then packing the vehicle and trailer with all the backdrops and camp equipment. Destination: Rotorua North Island Summer Camp.
Straight after the north camp, everything is packed up again, loaded into our vehicle and trailer. We bring the speakers and all our equipment home, to set up again for the South Island Bible Convention. Again, a lot of work but well worth it. Yes, it does involve a lot of work and full effort of all staff, but is it worth it? Yes, every bit of it. This year was no exception. Many people sincerely appreciated the messages presented by all four presenters.
A young lady who came to our combined exhibit at the Christchurch A&P Show, was very impressed and as a result, also came to the Bible Convention and brought along her mother. Both were impressed with the messages presented. Another man who has been watching Firstlight TV, was impressed to attend. He met people there he had previously worked with and struck up new contacts and has decided to join in fellowship each Sabbath. These are a sample of the results that make the whole effort worth while.
Media: Presentations from both events were recorded and an order sheet is enclosed with this newsletter. They are available on CD, MP3, DVD, Mp4.
The meetings were also live streamed and can be viewed on our You Tube channel at www.youtube.com/autumnleavesnz
We will now work on preparing many of the presentations for broadcast and DVD distribution.
Post Camps: During February we have been busy following up and catching up from the holiday time and the Summer Camp and Bible Convention. There is unpacking of the equipment and books, sorting accounts for people, back orders of books and media and orders coming in for recordings of meetings. There is also a newsletter to prepare and publish along with the day-to-day ministry work and projects to keep working on.
"The truth must be scattered from city to city, from street to street, from family to family... The truth must be carried from province to province, from kingdom to kingdom. The highways and byways must be thoroughly gleaned, and the message must spread from continent to continent until the whole earth is belted with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ."
