Music Camp Report – Day 5

Wednesday 26th December, 2017 We woke up to a promising day of sunshine and warmth, which we had been praying for. With the rain clearing out and the sun smiling down on us, we began our day with worship, then breakfast and then prepared ourselves to leave for white water rafting at Penrith. I was really excited because this was the first time I had ever done anything like this. We had been told that we would leave camp at 10am, but…

Music Camp Report – Day 4

Tuesday 26th December, 2017 Tuesday was another big day of the 2017 Music Camp entitled, “Light the Way”, which started with the usual exercise routine at 6am sharp, and some early risers made it there. This was followed by the youth mentor groups meeting at 7am. In my group, led by Br. Nathan Tyler, we were discussing the Lord’s Prayer and how each phrase has a deeper meaning than what we read on the surface. “Thy Kingdom Come” was discussed…

Music Camp Report – Day 3

Monday 25th December, 2017 Monday morning dawned cool and wet, a contrast from the heat of the last couple of days.  Despite the weather, a few brave people met at 6am for exercise.  At 7am the young people met with their respective mentor groups, followed by worship, which was taken by Br Larry Ah-ching.  Worship was entitled “Shine the Light,” and we were reminded that ALL who receive the light of Christ are ordained to work for the salvation of…

Music Camp Report – Day 1

Sabbath 23 Dec 2017 We awoke this morning to a beautiful, warm day.  Br Luke Kneebone led worship with a very encouraging message entitled, “Trust in the Lord.”  He reminded us how easy it is for us as humans to place our trust in ourselves or others around us and how important it is to shift our trust completely to God.  Anxiety comes when we take responsibility upon ourselves for things we have no answers or solutions for.  Worrying cannot…

Scripture passages were read from the 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 11. Br.

Amen!

Cooking Demonstrations Victoria

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 2 By God’s grace, this year 2017 was a blessing to the Victorian/Tasmanian Field. We had seven cooking demos at 20 Dornoch Dr, Sunbury, running from May to December. They took place every second Thursday of the month, and about 18 people generally attended the presentations. It was nice to see these people coming along every single month, being active and asking…
