Missionary Training Program 2008

Full Report Reports from Students: Br Amos Thiel Question: Please share one of your impressive experiences from the Missionary Training Program. Answer: As a student at the Missionary Training Program, there was one thing that I noticed happening over and over, something that I call divine appointments. This I find to be the most encouraging and exciting thing to see that God is working and you have the privilege of cooperating with Him. Let me give you an example. It was…

Moreover this day, Beatrix Whitaker was accepted through profession of faith, and the Whitaker’s baby…

Western Australia Kalgoorlie Youth Camp 2005

On Friday morning we (Damien, Johnny and Catherine) arrived early at Ben's house. After some rather humorous packing ventures and after Naomi very sadly put away her blow-up boat due to no room in the car, we had a later than expected start to Rowles Lagoon near Kalgoorlie for a weekend camp-out, a 6 1/2; hour drive from Perth. After a very long trip we arrived safely. We set up camp and lit the fires just in time for Sabbath…

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.

The task: to write a menu, a mouth-watering task if I may say so myself, organise the purchase…

Jindabyne Trip

Well as for sight seeing, it was great, and what a wonder it is to see God’s creation! I saw each tree, flower and various plants. You can see the way that each one grows, and there are no two the same, and let us remember who was the Creator of it all. If we go back to the first book of the Bible, in Genesis 1:11-12 we read, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb…

New Zealand Field Spiritual Camp 2005

Our dear Saviour often taught in parables, to help all to see truth in a clearer light. "…Many failed of grasping at once the meaning of his parables; but as they day by day came in contact with the objects with which the Great Teacher had associated spiritual truths, some discerned the lessons of divine truth he had sought to impress, and these were convinced of the truth of his mission and converted to the gospel." (SSW, 1 Dec 1909)…
