Noah found grace!

One of my favourite people in the Bible is Noah. I remember as a child learning about Noah and the flood, and being amazed.
There are a number of aspects of the story that are so unique. God spoke to Noah about events that had never happened before. Right up until Noah’s time it had never rained on the earth. God tells Noah that because of men’s endless wickedness He is going to destro …


People are watching!

Ever noticed how people are so different?
One of my mother’s favourite activities was people watching. She would often sit by her front room window and look at people passing by her house. She enjoyed how people looked so different. I’m sure the saying, “variety is the spice of life,” must have originated with God! Look at all the diverse people He has made; the earth formations, animals and pl …

 Christ is our message!  We preach to awaken hearts and bring every person into the full understanding of truth.  It has become our inspiration and passion in ministry to labour with a tireless intensity, with His power flowing through us, to present to every believer the revelation of being His perfect one in Jesus Christ.

This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24:14


Rebecca Kristensen

‘Becs’ missionary work is under His Heart Ministries in Baguio City, Philippines. She has served among the poorest of the poor for 9 years, introducing Jesus and the Holy Spirit to women & children and the homeless through street outreaches & 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.  You can support Rebecca Kristensen’s amazing work.  See her on her facebook page.  Just type in her name!



Christmas season is the best time of year to share the good news of Jesus Christ to Buddhists and Unbelievers.  So on Sunday 23rd December 2018 Pastor Henry Maa held a special celebration service and invited all the local community.  50 people came and heard the gospel and later enjoyed a lovely lunch cooked by church members.

The previous week Pastor Siang Ban Mang and Senior Pastor Pau Khan Thwan had come from Yangon, and encouraged Pastor Henry and his flock with the Word of God, and prayed for them that they would be strengthened in their faith.  They gave Christmas gifts to 15 families of small bags of rice and a little cooking oil.  These gifts were exceedingly precious as everyone is desperately poor and in great need of daily survival.

Our family connection with the church in Yangon: 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 home for Pastor Henry Maa and his family, as well as a haircutting salon.  Ps Henry’s little flock is too poor to financially support him – but in spiritual reality they are rich according to Revelation 2:9 – so Henry doubles as pastor and barber/hair stylist in their community.  We support Ps Henry as well as two students from an affiliated Bible College.

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.



God’s grace to give and forgive is now publicised everywhere.  Salvation is available for everyone!  God’s word teaches us how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honouring life.
