In the Office
The Day’s of Noah Documentaries: When Doug and Damon were in the USA in 2015, they called to visit one of our long time friends and suppliers in Idaho. Jeff Reich and his team at Laymen Ministries were at that time part way through the production of a documentary series comparing the days of Noah with the end times, with an emphasis on the three angels’ messages. This four part series was recently completed and we obtained copies as soon as we were able. After viewing the final product we realised it was very well made and had great potential to reach many people. We coordinated with Firstlight TV to help promote the broadcast of this series NZ wide during the month of October.
This triggered a large interest in the DVDs and our initial supply sold out. The price was initially quite high but after discussion with Laymen Ministries we were able to have them on hand here at the reasonable price of $65 for our second shipment which sold out before it arrived. We doubled the quantity for the third shipment. These presentations are now also being screened in churches and events in various places in New Zealand and around the world. If you haven’t yet watched this series we recommend it as it will give you the big picture of Bible teachings in a easy to understand way and it is also great for sharing!
Second-hand Books: We have recently received and processed a large number of second hand books and other items. This includes a wide variety of topics and authors, and many out-of-print books. These are available to view online or you can contact us for a listing via email or post.
Shipment to Tonga: We were recently asked to print hundreds of Bible Study guides in the Tongan language for a person who had created them. They also wanted them shipped to Tonga. We grasped this opportunity to share the cost of the pallet shipping and printed 700 copies of the Tongan Steps to Christ books we had previously produced as one of our projects. These along with other English resources were recently shipped and we know they will be a blessing to those who are able to read and learn from them in this Pacific nation.
Website Updates: We are continuing to rebuild our websites to tune them for a more public audience. We are reaching to a wider variety of different people and with our new ministry resource centre being built, it is already attracting public interest. We want to be better able to address queries and reach people more effectively using online resources. Changes will be seen in the coming months.
Media Production: We recently completed the video series of a 24-part evangelistic series presented in Christchurch area. The Ancient Mysteries series uses archaeology to show the authenticity of the Bible and reveals what it shows for our future. The excellent sharing series is intended to be broadcast on TV and is now also available on DVD. Contact us for details.
We have also recently been working on a Testimony in Song Concert for broadcast and DVD, and another of our current projects is a series of videos presented by Doug in Australia on the topic of Armageddon. These will be available soon.
Building Project: Another milestone has just been reached with the progress of building the new ministry resource centre reaching lockup stage. This means the building is essentially completed outside, with the roof, doors/windows and cladding in place. We are currently painting the outside and plumbing pipework has been completed and we will begin the electrical wiring very soon.
Video Camera Upgrade: We are very pleased to report we now have two new cameras. With a great amount of research, we have settled on the Panasonic AG-CX350. These are a great improvement on our retired cameras, giving much better performance in low light. They will be a boost to our video production, events and in our new studio. We thank the family who donated to make this possible.

"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."
