Auckland NZ Rally – Contending for the Faith

On the last weekend of October members from the six assemblies from the North and South Islands of New Zealand, a good representation from Australia, and Pastor Apenisa from Sigatoka, Fiji, met in Auckland. This annual gathering took on a different approach this year by being held at the Waipuna Conference Centre. With most visitors staying at the venue, which included some first-class catering and meeting arrangements all under the same roof – it was wall to wall convenience.

On Saturday Morning after being baptised, she got a healing, able to walk by herself. God is so wonderful!...

Melbourne Youngies Launch Camp

Over the Australia Day weekend the Melbourne Youngies made their way to Freshwater Creek for the annual launch camp. The weather turned it on with warm days so we could spend our afternoons frolicking in the sun at rivers and beaches and spending some quality time with our fellow brethren. There was plenty to do with people joining in on Finska, beach cricket, water frisbee, back of the bus and much sunscreening. Each morning started with breakfast prepared by some of our young people and the last day Eddy Vanderstadt graciously filled......

With the coffee overflowing and banana bread by the bucket load, the “Say Something” outreach highlighted Newcastle as place to be over the long weekend.

In a refreshing format, workshops and group exercises were run on Saturday morning to discuss how to talk to others about our personal experience in receiving the Holy Spirit.......
