Autumn Leaves (NZ) Limited is a charitable resource and service organization based in Canterbury, New Zealand with the purpose of scattering God’s message of truth like the leaves of autumn.
In the Office
Over the last few months we have been blessed to be able to continue to serve in the varied capacities of the ministry.
Increased Stock. We receive many of our items for sale and distribution by box lot. With an increase of demand and the quantity of items we provide, the amount and frequency of pallet-lots has increased. We received another large shipment recently with a variety of books, media and other items from various suppliers in the USA. We are starting to coordinate another large shipment now.
Parcels. You may also notice that some of the packages you receive from us are changing. We have been working with different courier services which has made some parcels more economical to send and faster service and the processing is more efficient for us.
Stock Take. At the beginning of this month we were busy with our annual stock take, which not only gives us the opportunity to correct our stock count but also helps us to take stock of the purpose and effect of the items we provide.
Receipts. The end of financial year is also the time that we send out the annual donation receipts for donors who can claim tax back against their income. If you are in New Zealand and have donated to help the work of Autumn Leaves throughout the year you should have already received your receipt. If not, be in touch with us.
Video production. We have continued with producing video content, although with limited capabilities here at home base, we have been able to accomplish more with assistance from editors in the North Island and over in Spain to prepare presentations recorded at our meetings in January for TV, internet and DVD distribution.
Reaching Out. This ministry continues to have most of its effect in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands, but we also reach right around the globe. In particular Kenya and Alaska have been two areas we have been able to reach out to just recently.
Video Camera Upgrade: In January we trialed a potential camera to upgrade our video capabilities. We were disappointed with it’s capabilities for our use and have researched further and discovered a new camera with impressive capabilities. These are about the same purchase cost of around $6000 each and we hope to kit ourselves out with a pair of these cameras in the coming months.

Island Books & Bibles: We have recently supplied a small quantity of Bibles for distribution in Papua New Guinea and have requests for more. Workers in Tonga are also requesting more copies of booklets in the Tongan language.

Building Project: Progress has been steady on this project over the last two months. Building plans have been submitted to the council, and details are currently being worked through. Soon we will be able to physically start the build! The old house has now gone, the south fence replaced, the section cleared and the car park is now being prepared. More available on information sheet.

"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."
