Baptism in Victoria

On the Sabbath of the 21st of January 2006, Nikita Reed from the Northern Territory (who will be our first member in the Northern Territory) and Conrad Whitaker, were baptised in the Maribyrnong River, Victoria, in searing 40 degree heat (many wanted to be rebaptised because of the heat), reminiscent of the heat that we experienced at the Youth Conference in Sydney, this last year. Moreover this day, Beatrix Whitaker was accepted through profession of faith, and the Whitaker’s baby…

Victoria Youth Activity Camp 2005

“God’s Heroes” – Our Learning Curve Anglesea, 18-20 November 2005 Faces were lit with excitement when the word was spread: we were to organise and run our own camp. After choosing our theme “God’s Heroes” we began to lay plans. We would need food—very important—also someone to cook it. Sara Boje was elected head chief and given a small army to com-mand. The task: to write a menu, a mouth-watering task if I may say so myself, organise the purchase…

South Australia Health Conference 2005

If you missed the South Australian health conference entitled ‘Home Made Health’ you really missed something wonderful. We all enjoyed such a lovely time together, learning, sharing and having fun! The weather was sunny and warm, the food was delicious and the fellowship rich. On Friday evening we started out with Bro Robles taking the opening message on The Entering Wedge. In very simple practical language he showed us where in the Bible we find each of the eight laws…

We all realise the end is near and the message of Christ’s soon coming needs to go to the world.…
