Australian Camp and Meetings
June was a very busy month in Australia. Sabbath June 1 we were at a church in New South Wales and took a service and shared a lunch afterwards, the following week we were preparing for the Youth and Family Bible Convention at Wyee from Thursday June 6 through to Monday June 10. Numbers were down on other years, but those who attended very much enjoyed the messages shared by Tim Rumsey and David Salazaar as well as some local presenters.
We bid David farewell back to USA on the Tuesday, Tim flew across to Western Australia where we joined him for a camp in Busselton from Thursday June 13 through Sunday June 16, organised by folk at Albany. A wonderful opportunity to meet new people and good friendships were made.
Tim continued to stay in Perth for an outreach programme in one of the churches, to close off on Sabbath June 22.
From the Busselton camp, we also stayed in Perth area to spend the next couple of days visiting with people, then we flew back to New South Wales, to share the Service at another church group in Newcastle area.
We returned home Monday June 24 to a bright and sunny day, although cool. Can't say Australia was very tropical at all on both sides of the country, but June is winter and we don't expect high temperatures.

North Summer Camp & South Bible Convention 2019
The Summer Camp and Bible Convention run in January were both well attended and much appreciated. It is interesting that this year’s events were perhaps the most criticized by some who didn’t attend and yet the most appreciated by those that did. The guest speakers complimented each other well.
Perhaps one of the most impacting presentations was a series by Oscar Sande entitled The Atheist God, which answers time-aged questions of how God can be loving while our world, and the Bible itself, is full of stories of death and destruction. This series will not only help those who struggle with the concept of God, but will also lead those who already know Him to have a deeper understanding and respect for the God of Love.
Jeff Wehr, David Salazar and Robert Pannekoek also presented many interesting and uplifting presentations.
Basic recordings are now available on DVD and we will be producing many of these for broadcast, online sharing and DVD distribution.
Canterbury A & P Show 2018
The Canterbury Agricultural Show has a much greater attendance than the Vegan expo but a much more diverse type of attendee. At both these events we had the opportunity to meet a lot of people and through our healthbites paper we will be able to have ongoing contact with many.
Christchurch Vegan Expo 2018
At the eleventh annual Vegetarian/Vegan Expo in Christchurch , Sunday October 28, we were able to reach thousands of people who have an interest in health and diet.
Australian Meetings - October 2018
Doug and Angela visited Australia in October. They traveled some long distances, calling in on friends, and of course shared meetings in both church and camp settings. At the camp meetings they shared five messages on the Battle of Armageddon, one on the importance of doctrine and one on the greater and lesser light.
The interest at the Neville camp was so keen, that a dear couple from Queensland are set on organising a similar camp to share these messages in North Queensland early next year.

Youth & Family Bible Convention 2018
Australian Queen's Birthday Weekend - June 7-11
The Youth & Family Bible Convention is a 4 day convention for committed people who are seeking to demonstrate God's call in their life and to share and learn different methods of sharing Christ.
The convention aims to provide people with a sense of God's call and a deeper understanding of His Word in order to equip them to share Christ in their homes and places of work.
This is an opportunity for each person to open their Bible and gain knowledge, vision, motivation, and fellowship. In an effort to aid the young, their families and acquaintances also must share in the experience!
