Western Australia Missionary News

  For some time it had been in my mind to visit those individuals who had ordered a copy of, “The Great Controversy” from the leaflets letterboxed.  Although I have no problem going on my own to do this, I do not think it is wise for a sister these days to do so, I shared my desire with Sr. Maureen Parkes and we decided on a day that would suit us both. Tuesday morning came, and after much prayer, we set…

Stratham Church Building Dedication

  On Sunday, 2 December 2001, the Stratham Church was dedicated.  After much preparation, and many invitations, the little church was completely full as the congregation rose to sing Samuel Wesley’s great hymn, “The Church has One Foundation”. The Bible reading was taken from John 4:5-15, and Br. Southwell gave his address based on that incident in Jesus’ life where He met the woman at the well and discussed many great things with her. After being questioned on the best place to…

Fortunately, we managed to retrieve most of the runaway pamphlets. We thank God…

Carnarvon Missionary Trip

  On the long weekend of the January 27, the youth from the Perth church all made the long and tiring trip to Carnarvon, a town approximately 10 hours drive from Perth, to respond to an invitation to sing and take the services at the Adventist and Church of Christ congregations there. We had originally planned to leave by 1 pm on Friday afternoon from the church, the agreed meeting place, but after a delay of an hour and a…

Trainee Bible Workers Seminar

  Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, Greetings from cloudy Melbourne with a verse of light, "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee." Isaiah 60:1 I want to write about the time we spent in Sydney after the close of the Youth Convention. It was a time of fire, both literal and spiritual. Billows of smoke continually surrounded the Elim Heights Youth Camp where we were staying, and we…
