GRACE GROUPS

God has rescued us completely from the tyrannical rule of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom realm of His beloved Son.  For in the Son all our sins are cancelled and we have the release of redemption through His very blood.

MISSIONS

NEPAL
 

For I long to visit you that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to help you grow strong in the Lord.  Romans 1:11

In the first half of 2018, Paul Saunders, and Marian & William Than embarked on separate missions of love to Nepal.

Paul preached at a Pastors and Leaders conference in Pokhara where hundreds were refreshed and strengthened in their faith.

Marian and William had a full and fruitful itinerary teaching at a bible college; ministering at youth services and a women’s seminar; and preaching in churches and evangelistic outreaches.

PHILIPPINES

Rebecca Kristensen

‘Becs’ works under His Heart Ministries in Baguio City, Philippines. Her work among the poorest of the poor focuses on introducing Jesus and the Holy Spirit to women & children and the homeless through outreach & house church planting.  They see a constant flow of miracles and the evidence of God’s amazing grace at work.

We support Becs every month.  To support Rebecca Kristensen’s amazing work you can contact her directly at her facebook page.  Just type in her name!

 

MYANMAR

In 2013 Grace Auckland purchased a piece of land in Yangon, Myanmar.  Financial giving in Auckland enabled and supported the construction of a small, multipurpose building that functions as a church and accommodation for Pastor Henry Maa and his family, as well as a haircutting salon.

Ps Henry Maa is both shepherd & ‘tentmaker’.  Much like the apostle Paul of Acts 18:1-4, Ps Henry works as barber/hair stylist to support his family because his congregation is financially poor (but they are rich according to Revelation 2:9).  We prayerfully & financially support Grace Church as well as two students from an affiliated Bible College.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA

Graeme & Sharon Lepper

A vitally important building is under construction at Christian Leaders’ Training College in the highlands of Papua New Guinea – an ablution block!  Graeme & Sharon, retired builder and teacher respectively, continue to put their talents to use.  They fundraised to purchase and import a block-cutting machine from China, and are now providing on the job construction training to local adult students.  After the ablution block is operational Graeme & Sharon plan to gift the block-cutting machine to CLTC, a wonderful interdenominational ministry.

PASTOR’S BLOG

By Pastor Bob Scroggins

The Lord is my Director

Ever heard someone use this statement “I don’t know which end is up?” People who use this term mean they have lost their sense of direction. Others may put it like this “I feel like I’m walking around in a fog.” What a person means is I’m not seeing what’s up ahead.
 
Some of us as children played a game where people would spin us around very quickly. After they had spun us around in circles we w …

God the Builder!

Life isn’t all plain sailing. We all go through times when we are needing clarity and direction. We have times when direction and decisions in life are clear and we are moving forward. Then there are other times when it seems like we are walking around in a fog or waiting for a red light to turn green that seems to be taking forever.
 
When we don’t have clarity we can sometimes have a tendency t …

New Zealand has the best national anthem in the world and we are ever grateful to God who gave it to us!  New Zealand is the first country in the world to see the light of every new day so it is quite literally the land of God’s new zeal!  “God defend New Zealand” is the nation’s prayer sung at every major event in which New Zealand is involved.
 
GOD DEFEND NEW ZEALAND
 
1. God of Nations at Thy feet,
In the bonds of love we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our free land.
Guard Pacific’s triple star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God defend New Zealand.
 
2. Men of every creed and race,
Gather here before Thy face,
Asking Thee to bless this place,
God defend our free land.
From dissension, envy, hate,
And corruption guard our state,
Make our country good and great,
God defend New Zealand.
 
3. Peace, not war, shall be our boast,
But, should foes assail our coast,
Make us then a mighty host,
God defend our free land.
Lord of battles in Thy might,
Put our enemies to flight,
Let our cause be just and right,
God defend New Zealand.
 
4. Let our love for Thee increase,
May Thy blessings never cease,
Give us plenty, give us peace,
God defend our free land.
From dishonour and from shame,
Guard our country’s spotless name,
Crown her with immortal fame,
God defend New Zealand.
 
5. May our mountains ever be
Freedom’s ramparts on the sea,
Make us faithful unto Thee,
God defend our free land.
Guide her in the nations’ van,
Preaching love and truth to man,
Working out Thy glorious plan,
God defend New Zealand.
