In the Office
Over the last few months we have been blessed to be able to continue to serve in the varied capacities of ministry.
New Staff: We have been blessed to have Michelle Payne from Palmerston North come down to join our team in the role of video editor. Michelle has studied information technology and has been adapting quickly to her role here. With video becoming a vital way to reach people, this has enabled us to continue producing video content. She has stepped straight into editing an evangelistic series which is now almost complete.
Post, Parcels & Pallets: With fuel and freight pricing increasing again in July, we've reviewed our courier options to find better pricing to continue to get resources to you at reasonable prices. We're very happy to advise that we have found some good solutions. Some parcels may still have a slight increase in cost but some parcels will even be a lower price and faster to get to you than previously. We have also found a better solution than we've had for many years for sending multiple boxes to the same address. This was put to the test with a recent pallet order going to the New Plymouth area with a saving of $215!
Pallet shipment: Our next pallet shipment in from the United States is due around the end of August. We aim to bring bulk and non-urgent stock this way to keep costs down. This will replenish stocks and we'll also have some great new options for sharing Jesus.
Second Hand Books: With winter coming on we're making an effort to process boxes of second hand books at the moment. We've received a number of high quality Spirit of Prophecy books and DVDs recently, so look out on email or our website for these in the near future. Many times there are only one copy of each title and you can also sign up to receive emails of the latest second hand items as they become available.
Building Project: The building has begun on site for this project. All of the siteworks are complete and the foundation is currently being laid! The next major goal is to raise the funds for the building itself. This faith project has been funded by many donors as each step has progressed, and now the progress will be happening faster. Be sure to view our building project web page and read the latest update sheet. www.autumnleaves.co.nz/projects/building/
Video Camera Upgrade: We intend to upgrade our existing video cameras as soon as funds allow. These new cameras will update our current equipment we purchased used a number of years ago. Technology has developed in the meantime and we look forward to making the most of these improvements to present better video productions as we share the Gospel.
"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."
