South Australia News
Sabbath 5th March 2016, we enjoyed a rather typical once a month nursing home outreach, followed by church members’ and friends’ social get-together!
A great time was had by all. We in South Australia are generally a happy little company who need a little ‘stoking up’ as it were to get the missionary spirits ‘fired up’, but, thank the Lord, He has given us little opportunities to start ‘spreading the ‘Reform message’ here in Adelaide by simple letterboxing using the new, fresh, colourful leaflets advertising for free our main outreach books, Great Controversy, Desire of Ages, and from Carnivore to Herbivore.
We usually attend nursing homes about once every month or two, to exercise our vocal talents and bring some joy and eternal hope to those who are in their last days of life in this world. Just this last weekend we managed to bring some joy to the residents of Hahndorf Nursing Home (about 60 in our audience). We also have our weekly prayer groups, both at home and at church, and our monthly social get-togethers, usually at church, but, sometimes, as we did this last weekend, at our member’s homes. This last weekend we shared a light fruit meal together, along with interesting discussion about how to improve our personal and church life and outreach methods. This last weekend was a ‘House-warming’ get-together at Br Csongi and Kaylene Matyas’ new place in Meadows, a beautiful country town just slightly South-east of Adelaide (about 30 kms away). In attendance we had about 26 friends and church members.
Let’s ask the Lord the Lord to ‘fire us up’ even more, that our talents may be used to quickly gather His people from all the confused Christian groups and other belief systems out in the world today.
