Queensland Conference was held at Baden Powell Park at Samford Village. We came aside from our busy schedules and enjoyed Christian fellowship in the beautiful hills of Samford. We were spiritually blessed with the messages presented.
Our theme “Two Ways Two Crowns” was thought provoking as we considered our direction, life interests, and the effect of our daily choices.
Yes, we came to bless and be blessed as we contemplate the lessons given in this inspired theme given so many years ago. It was very nice to have our guest speaker Nathan Tyler and his family during camp, also the Brown’s family that came all the way from Coleambally to be the cooks and we all enjoyed the delicious meals.
We had about 60 people attending the Conference and on sabbath we were blessed with many visitors. Here are some beautiful and inspirational quotes read at camp:
“In the vision given me… I was shown this earth, dark and gloomy. Said the angel: ‘Look carefully!’ Then I was shown the people upon the earth. Some were surrounded by angels of God, others were in total darkness, surrounded by evil angels. I saw an arm reached down from heaven, holding a golden scepter. On the top of the scepter was a crown studded with diamonds. Every diamond emitted light, bright, clear, and beautiful. Inscribed upon the crown were these words: ‘All who win me are happy, and shall have everlasting life’.
“Below this crown was another scepter, and upon this also was placed a crown, in the center of which were jewels, gold, and silver, reflecting some light. The inscription upon the crown was: “Earthly treasure. Riches is power. All who win me have honor and fame.” I saw a vast multitude rushing forward to obtain this crown. …” Testimonies for the Church Vol 1, page 347
“. . . I saw the distinction in these roads, also the distinction between the companies traveling these roads. The roads are opposite; one is broad and smooth, the other is narrow and rugged. So the par- ties that travel these roads are opposite in character, in life, in dress, and conversation.” Spiritual Gifts Volume 4b page 13.3
“Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.“ Proverbs 21:2
What did happen?
Activities included: Spiritual meetings, discussion groups, walks, orienteering, water activities and workshops on different topics. It was good to see everyone involved and helping out. We all are looking forward to our next Conference here in Queensland and we thank God for the privilege that everyone has had to be together for a long spiritual weekend.
May God bless you all.
