On Sunday 9th June 2013 Br Luke, his wife Sr Jade and Josiah left Sydney for Samoa.  Jade shared…

Pacific Islands Leaders Meetings – Port Vila, Vanuatu

  The Word of God is clear that the Gospel will be preached in all nations before the second coming of Christ in the clouds of heaven. It is of interest that the work of God in the island regions gets a special mention in Isaiah. 42:10-12  “Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants…

Fly-n-Build Vanuatu Project Update

All I could hear was my heart thumping The emotions of several months were finally coming to an end. The culmination of planning and phone calls was finally coming to a landing on the small runway of Malekula Island. I had been here one time before in preparation of the Church building program.

Fly and Build Project – Vanuatu (Update from the AUC YPD)

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Matt. 28:19. Many times I ask myself if it is worth investing and spending a lot of money to do missionary work in the islands. I know that this money could be spent here, locally… but while reading the book “Faith  I Live By” I came across THE answer. “Christ gave His disciples their commission. He…

By God’s grace most of the money to purchase the property was raised in local donations, and a loan was taken for the remainder. The church…
