Sunday 31st March 2019

In the year 1606 a Portuguese sea Naval Officer - Captain Fernandez de Quiros proclaimed:

 Let the heavens, the earth, the waters with all their creatures and all those present witness that I, Captain Pedro Fernandez de Quiros .... in the name of Jesus Christ .... hoist this emblem of the Holy Cross on which His (Jesus Christ’s) person was crucified and whereon He gave His life for the ransom and remedy of all the human race .... on this Day of Pentecost, 14 May 1606 .... I, take possession of all this part of the South as far as the pole in the name of Jesus .... Which from now on shall be called the Southern land of the Holy Ghost .... and this always and forever .... to the end that to all natives, in the said lands, the holy, sacred evangel may be preached zealously and openly.".

New Zealand is included in the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit too. Here are some of the words in our National Anthem:

"Let our love for Thee increase
May Thy blessings never cease
Give us plenty, give us peace
God defend our Free Land"

I will extol You, my God, O king; and I will bless Your name for ever and ever.  Every day will I bless You, and I will praise Your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable.  Psalm 45:1-3

God bless you – have a wonderful day.

May the Lord bless you mightly today. The Bible makes it very clear inActs 4:12 (CEV) Only Jesus has the power to save! His name is the only one in all the world that can save anyone.  ...

The NKJV puts it this way: Acts 4:12 (NKJV) Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. ...

We are told in Luke 4:8(b)  for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. ...

The words of the following old hymn came to mind as I was thinking about the above scriptures: ...

More about Jesus would I know

More of His grace to others show

More of His saving fulness see

More of His love

Who died for me. ...

So as we come together here today, let's put aside the cares of the week and give honour, praise and worship to our Mighty God. !!! Hallelujah!!!

Sunday 17th March 2019

Last Friday afternoon New Zealand witnessed the mass killing of 49 people in the city of Christchurch, by the hand of a demonic gunman.

We are told in Romans 12.15(b) to "weep with them weep."

This morning we will pray together for those who are wounded and for the families of those who have lost loved ones from the shooting.

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.

And let's call on God for Revival in the church and a Great Awakening across the country of New Zealand. It is time for us as a nation to get back to God. Let revival begin in us this morning.

May the bless you and keep you

Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides.  Psalm 119:8..

It was so refreshing to have Michael and Desma Cook with us last Sunday morning from Creation Ministries International sharing the truths of the Bible from the Book of Genesis.

Former All Black Eroni Clark delivered an outstanding message at the “Day of Blessing” hosted by the Combined Churches of Te Awamutu last Wednesday afternoon at the Rugby Club Rooms. The lunch time event was well supported by town's folk and church members alike, where prayers of blessing and support were offered for the various community organisations of the town.

We have finally set Friday 10th and Saturday 11th of May as the dates for the Tokoroa Outreach. We will post more details of the proposed outreach over the next few weeks. .

May the Lord richly bless you, today and always.

Sunday 3rd March 2019

We are pleased to welcome Michael Cook from Creation Ministries International to the Te Awamutu Christian Centre this morning. We have been looking forward to this presentation for some time now.

And we also welcome all visitors with us today too, it's great to see you here. We trust that you really feel at home.

Never in modern history has the teaching of Creation Ministries International been so necessary, as the current secular culture falls further and further towards the abyss of satanic debauchery and depravity.

We have been called to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

I believe that what Michael has for us this morning (from the Bible and from science), will help to shatter and destroy many of the lies that have been embedded in our minds from childhood and beyond, releasing true faith and belief towards God in all of our hearts..

The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:30 Hallelujah!!!

May the Lord richly bless you

Sunday 24th February 2019..

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Psalm 122:1

For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Psalm 149:4

It was wonderful to hear the sound of the rain falling on the roof yesterday watering the ground and allowing the grass in the Waipa to get a new lease of life.

May the refreshing rain of heaven fall upon us as we centre our affection on our precious Lord and Saviour this morning.

Next Sunday morning Michael Cook from Creation Ministries International will be with us. This will give you the opportunity to bring along a friend or loved one to discover what are the “Foundations of the Gospel.”

We would encourage you to seek the Lord with all your heart because he will answer you.  That way you will  develop a real and personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

May the Lord richly bless you all – you are awesome!!!

With love and appreciation

Sunday 27th January 2019..

One of the names of Jehovah God is Jehovah Rapha, which in English means "I AM THE LORD WHO HEAL YOU." Over recent years we have seen pockets of the church world wide move in amazing miracles, but in general the majority have surcomed to the false teachings floating around - that the day of miracles has past.

Jesus told his disciples to "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons: freely you received, freely give."  Matthew 10:8.   But how many Christians are actually doing what Jesus said we could do?

God wants to show himself strong here in New Zealand and He is continually calling on his people to be courageous and get out there and let the POWER of God flow through them to a hurting world.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.  John 3:16-17.

Pastor Bruce will be travelling over to California next week to meet up with his eldest son Andrew and together they will attend the School of Healing and Impartation with Pastors Randy Clark and Bill Johnson in the city of Redding.

You can see a video clip of Pastor Randy Clark's testimony if you  CLICK HERE 

Enjoy these beautiful summer days while I'm away.

May God richly bless you.

Wow – what a wonderful time we had together last Sunday morning as Sandra ministered God's word to us all. What amazing life changing power there is in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Today we will take a look at just 3 verses from Scripture which show the importance of leading people to the Lord Jesus.

Proverbs 11:30  The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

Daniel 12:3  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

James 5:20  Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Never forget that God loves you.  You were the reason Jesus came to this earth to show us what God the Father was really like.  “God is love.”

God bless you and have a great day.

Happy New Year!!! Trust you have enjoyed your time over the past few weeks of the Christmas holidays, celebrating with family and friends. 

Isn't it amazing that for over two thousand years people have continued to celebrate Christmas as Jesus Birthday, and people all over the world are overcome with a spirit of giving at this time of the year. And it all began because God so loved us that he GAVE us his most precious gift. 

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."  John 3:16.

As we step into the first few days of 2019 - God desires that we shine brighter and brighter for Him each day.

“You are the light of the world.  A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."  Matthew 5:14-16.

Note:  Our first day of fellowship for the year is Sunday 13th January 2019.

Pastor Sandra Roberts will be our guest speaker at the 10am service only. She has a compassionate and powerful ministry.  Some of the results of her personal prayers over people (for physical and emotional healing) are astounding. You will have opportunity to be prayed for at this one meeting if you so desire.

God bless you and have a great day

Sunday 16th December 2018..

As we gather together today, let's put aside the distractions of life and apply the instruction of this old hymn to our lives:

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,

Look full in His wonderful face,

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,

In the light of His glory and grace.

And the Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

The neat thing about Jesus is that He imparts His nature to all those who receive him. (see John 1:12) So as you find opportunity to share your testimony with folks over the holiday season, expect God to use your story to touch their lives with the love and power of the Lord.

Next Sunday will be our final church fellowship day for the year, and we will hold the first church service of the New Year on Sunday 13th January 2019. To start the New Year - Sandra Roberts will be with us for one special meeting on the 13th January.

God bless you and have a great day

If you have ever wondered what you would find 820 meters above sea level up Mount Pirongia, this is what you would see - the sign for Wharauroa lookout.   ((Click here))

Signs usually point to or discribe something. "And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book."  John 20:30

Over the years people in our fellowship have received gold dust from heaven. Also in a meeting in Auckland we saw gems that had come from heaven and had the privilege of actually holding some in his hands. These unusual things happening are marvellous signs and wonders. The signs point to God and the wonders make you wonder! Jesus said "The kingdom of God is near..."

We belong to the glorious kingdom of heaven where the streets are made of gold and the multicoloured walls of the city are layers of precious gemstone.

Over the last decade or so God has been revealing amazing signs and wonders both to and through His children around the world.  ((Click here))

God is getting ready to call us home to glory very soon but in the mean time He's giving His people a glimpse of where we are going. --- see Revelation 21:18-21

God bless you and keep you

We are so blessed to be living in this beautiful country of New Zealand. This morning we will be focusing on our brothers and sisters around the world who are living in countries where christians are being persecuted for having the courage to speak out for the Lord.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Matthew 5:11

A big "thank you" to all those who worked tirelessly serving the public at Selwyn Park and helping to make the 2018 Light Party the best ever.

It's such an honour to be able to bless the people of our community in such a way. Watching families having fun together and not having to worry about paying for anything is wonderful.

Jesus said: … Freely you have received, freely give. Matthew 10:8

Psalm 133:1,3.  Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! ... For there the Lord commanded the blessing - Life forevermore.

May God richly bless you.

May you experience a visitation of the Holy Spirit of the Living God to inspire and encourage you today. The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock and let the God of my salvation be exalted.  Psalm 18:46

Let's take a look at the a look at a few basic healing scriptures in preparation for our upcoming outreach in Tokoroa.  The study today will help to equip you for everyday life as well.  If you are able to compare a number of Bible translations in your study - that would be most helpful.

Exodus 15:26,  Exodus 23:25,  Psalm 103:1-5,  Psalm 107:19-20,  Isaiah 53:4-5,      Matthew 8:17,  Mark 16:15-18,  Acts 10:38,  1 John 3:8.

The Apostle Paul makes things clear when he says: "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."  Romans 10:17.

Moses was instructed by God to follow the pattern when building the Tabernacle “For when Moses began to construct the tabernacle God warned him and said,You must precisely follow the pattern I revealed to you on Mt. Sinai.”  Hebrews 8:5

We may not always get things 100% right, when ministering divine healing but we have been gently instructed by the Lord to press on for the 'High Calling of God.' Sometimes in life – practice makes perfect.

May the Lord richly bless you

We hope you were able to get outdoors to enjoy the warm sunny days we had last week. Many of the trees and vines around the Waipa are bursting back to life, bright green for the coming summer season.

The seasons continue much the same as when they first began the day God set them in motion.  There is still “a time to plant and a time to harvest.” Song of Solomon 3:2b (NLT) and will continue until the end of time.

As we gather together today let's praise and exalt the Lord with all of our might. King Solomon prayed to the Lord and cried: “Let your priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let your saints rejoice in goodness. (see 2 Chronicles 6:41)

Let's make a faith exchange to day - the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3), because the Lord has made us kings and priests unto our God. (Revelation 1:6which gives us the priviledge of worshipping the Father in spirit and in truth. (John 4:23-24)

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!  Psalm 8:1&9. (ESV)

May the Lord richly bless you

Yesterday morning I looked out the kitchen window and saw a Magpie standing on the lawn. As I watched he looked up for a second then took aim, and in one direct hit pecked out an earthworm from the lawn.

After watching him successfully do this several few times, I noticed that he was listening for the sound (in the ground) of the earthworm moving – then without hesitation, with perfect skill, aimed directly for the sound and collected his breakfast.

Luke 12:24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds?

God has made the birds hearing so good, that they an hear the sound of their breakfast moving in the soil and peck it out – without even looking.

How great is our God !!!

Seven times in the book of Revelation we are told to “hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

God is speaking, we need to be constantly listening to His still small voice. Elijah heard the voice of God. 

The Lord God said to Elijah and said (1 Kings 19:11-13)

“Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake;  and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.  So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

May the Lord richly bless you

Yes - Happy Father's Day to all the dads with us today.

Be blessed in Jesus name !!!

King David set us a great example in Psalm 34:3 when he wrote these words: “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” As we go through the first few verses of the Psalm today, notice that it was at a time when David was going through one of the worst periods of his life that he said those words: “Let us exalt His name together.”

The Apostle Paul also wrote similar words in 1Thesalonians 5:18 (AMPC)
“Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].”

If we would just make the decision to exalt the Lord every day (on purpose), we'd find that our whole outlook on life would change for the better.

Song of Solomon 2:12 (TLB) "The flowers are springing up and the time
of the singing of birds has come. Yes, spring is here."

Have a great day.

Sunday 26th August 2018

Winter is almost over as we approach the beginning of spring. First the natural then the spiritual (see 1 Corinthians 15:46) – I believe all of us are about to enter a new season in God.

For lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
                                            The time of singing of the birds has come.... 
 Song of Solomon 2:11

The other day we were listening to an online Counsellor chatting with his client, and bringing out the truth of the situation. He mentioned to her that the truth would set her free. He was right, because as the truth was acknowledged the client recognized that she was free.

John 8:32   “And you shall know thetruth, and the truth shall make you free.”

God's Word is more powerful than we realize. For the word of God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective].....  ”Hebrews 4:12a (AMPC)

Hallelujah

And as Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”  They immediately left their nets and followed Him.  (Mark 1:16-18).

We heard of another way to “Go fishing” for souls. In Portugal a church got the idea of sending the choir down town to sing in the Plaza.

They sang hymns for a half hour then said,  “He's coming.”..

Who's coming?” asked the people

Somebody.” they replied.

So word got out and a crowd began to gather.  “He's coming,”  they were saying  “but we don't know who.”  The choir sang on for another half hour...

Then the preacher arrived and preached the gospel straight to the hearts of the people now gathered in a large crowd...

Up until that time Portugal had never had a revival but on this day there was a great in-gathering of souls!..

If you really want to be a soul winner - earnestly pray about it.  God can give you an inspired idea like the church in Portugal.  Even one soul's salvation is worth the effort.

God bless you and have a great day.

This article was printed in the Te Awamute Courier on page 6 on July 12th 2018 .

Today I spent a while “walking down memory lane” and came across an old photo of my Grandfather, the photo was taken when he was sitting at the dining room table reading his Bible. (I was 15 years old at the time)

The words of this old chorus we used to sing in Sunday School come to mind:

Yesterday, today, forever

Jesus is the same

All may change but Jesus never

Glory to His name

Glory to His name

Glory to His name

All may change but Jesus never

Glory to His name

We are living in a day when activism and social engineering are beginning to erode away many of the old established norms in our society, and we wonder why depression and suicide are so prevalent out there.

The God of the Bible says:  “For I am the LORD, I change not.”  Malachi 3:6

God loves you – He really does, and He accepts you just as you are when you call out to Him.

In Jeremiah 31:3 God says:  “I will always love you.”

But we have to realise that the God of the Bible is a God of justice as well.

If we insist on disobeying the road rules and choose to drive on the wrong side of the road, eventually we will have a serious accident and get hurt and may cause injury or death to an innocent person as well.

The same goes for the rules God has in place too.

Have you noticed how loud people scream and yell when they are trying to insist that thay are right, when they know deep down they are not?

God has not only put rules in place to protect us not to harm us but has given us an inner voice called conscience.

A friend at a late night party was offered a ride home by her Auntie because all the drivers were “getting tanked up.”

When our young friend declined the offer her inner voice was saying  “Go Now.”

Early in the morning travelling home with her boyfriend there was a serious car accident and our friend severed her spinal cord and lost the use of her legs.

She said later that it was God telling her to go home but she had ignored the inner voice.

Life is full of choices: “I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God's blessing and God's curse, and I call heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life.  Deuteronomy 30:19

Just to add some more information about my Grandfather. He was raised, together with his siblings, by his solo mother and at the age of 18 he dedicated his life to Jesus. He had a very healthy and successful life and died at 94 years of age.

God bless you

Sunday 1st July 2018

On Friday we attended the Christian Schools' Music festival. Waipa, Matamata, Taupo, Hamilton came together in Te Awamutu. We were very impressed by some outstanding musical talent. The programme began singing an invitation to the Holy Spirit and a couple of heartfelt worship songs. There was a real presence of the Lord there.

Having met the local headmaster, we are happy to promote the Waipa Christian School here in Te Awamutu. The school offers high quality education based on the N.Z. Curriculum. More than that they teach the love of God, truth, and godly wisdom for life.

For more information you can view their website which is:  www.waipachristian.school.nz  Please pray protection and blessing over these Christian Schools New Zealand wide.

We have noticed recently that God is encouraging His people to get out into the streets and demonstrate the power of the Holy Spirit - by healing people (in the Name of Jesus) right where they are.  There seems to be a shift from the big evangelistic healing meetings to the one-on-one ministry by children of God to their community. (see our Video Gallery)

The key to success in ministry is "Knowing who you are in Christ," or "Understanding your true identity."

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:  Colossians 2:9-10 

When you understand who you are in Christ, the miracles that Jesus did will become normal for you too !!!

Another scripture that comes to mind is:  Christ in you, the hope of glory.  Colossians 1:27 

Knowing that the moment you were born again - God re-created your spirit and the Spirit of Almighty God took up residence in you, and you became a child of the Living God.

Ephesians 2:10  For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

John 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth...

May our prayer ever be, "Lord please help me understand "who I am in Christ" so that I may release your healing power to people, just as you did when your were here on earth."

God bless you and have a great day.

Let us praise, and worship God today with thankfulness.  Why?  Because He is FAITHFUL .

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations. 

The meaning of the word faithful is that God wants to 'build up, support, and be true to' those who belong to Him.

Jocelyn came home elated after seeing the faithfulness of the Lord in caring for her ninety three year old mother.  Doors were closed and opened by the hand of God, regarding a good place where she can live out her final days in peace and joy. .

2 Thessalonians 3:3   But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

Hebrews 10:23  Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

Matthew 18:19  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

When we take these wonderful promises to heart, and also take their advice, what a lot of worry we are freed from.

Have a great day

Look up at the sky! Who created the stars you see? The one who leads them out like an army, he knows how many there are and calls each one by name! His power is so great - not one of them is ever missing! Isaiah 40:26. As we consider the wonders of God's handiwork this morning, let's just lift up our hearts in praise and adoration to our Mighty Creator.

We are privileged to be living at this time in history when the prophecies spoken about Israel years ago are being fulfilled before our eyes.

“The time is coming,” says the Lord, “when all of Jerusalem will be rebuilt as my city .... The city will never again be torn down or destroyed.”    see Jeremiah 31:38-40 

Remember it was the Anzac soldiers who helped liberate Jerusalem in WW1. Please pray that our Government will change its stance which at this time is against Jerusalem being Capital City of the State of Israel. It is shameful for a Christian nation to be against the establishment of Israel.

God bless you

It is good to see you all here today.  We have come to worship the only true God, and to give thanks for His faithfulness and love.  Also we have come to fellowship as brothers and sisters and encourage one another.

Did the Holy Spirit direct you to a special word of scripture to share?  Perhaps you have an inspired piece of music, or a prayer, or word of prophecy which will comfort, encourage, or build up others.

1 Corinthians 14:26 (GW)  So what does this mean, brothers and sisters?  When you gather, each person has a psalm, doctrine, revelation, another language, or an interpretation.  Everything must be done to help each other grow.

Colossians 3:16 (CEV)  Let the message about Christ completely fill your lives, while you use all your wisdom to teach and instruct each other.  With thankful hearts, sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.

Ephesians 5:19 (CEV)  When you meet together, sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, as you praise the Lord with all your heart.

Colossians 3:17 (CEV)  Whatever you say or do should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks to God the Father because of him.

May the Lord bless you more and more as you daily walk and talk with Him.

With love from

As it's Mother's Day - we will not be holding the service at 1.00pm today, however you're welcome to come along at 7.00pm this evening.

This morning we will be learning a new song by Hillsong Music – based on the words of John 3:16.  Known as "the Gospel in a nutshell."  (Click button below for the song)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

We have included copies of the Summer and Autumn editions of the Magazine titled AUTHENTIC in the book shelf. We would be interested in your feedback to help us decide whether to include future editions of the magazine for you.

Jude 1:24-25  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 

To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen...

God bless you

Our God is an awesome God.  He most certainly is the same;  Yesterday, Today and Forever....

There is Power,  Power Wonder Working Power

In the Blood of the Lamb

Jocelyn and I wish to thank all those who came over to Putaruru and helped to make the outreach at the Plaza such a great success.  Although the advertizing was not as successful as we would have liked, we believe that those who came were really blessed and encouraged in the Lord.

I was so proud of you all. Because of your humble and loving attitude, the folks who came were touched by the presence of the Lord – and they stayed at the Plaza long after the service was over to just enjoy the fellowship with you all.

Praise God for His promises. The CEV Translation of the Bible brings out the truths of Psalm 91 very clearly: verse 11  God will command his angels to protect you wherever you go. Verse 15 When you are in trouble, call out to me.   I will answer and be there to protect and honour you.

God is longing to show Himself strong among us.  All we need to do is to truly believe what He says, and we will be amazed.  Jesus said - If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.  Mark 19:23

I believe in miracles,
I've seen a soul set free,
Miraculous the change in one
Redeemed through Calvary;
I've seen the lily push its way
Up through the stubborn soil;
I believe in miracles,
For I believe in God!

You may be wondering why we have a picture of the Putaruru Plaza in the Newsletter today. Well it's because this will be the venue for our Outreach on Friday and Saturday nights of this week.

We have delivered fliers to almost every home in Putaruru and advertised in their local Newspaper – the South Waikato News.

A BIG THANK YOU to all those who delivered fliers to the homes in Putaruru. - God bless you one and all !!!

It is a real privilege to be able to bring the Gospel to the town and trust the Lord to confirm His Word with signs following,  as he promised He would.

This week I (Jocelyn) attended a funeral where there was no mention of God, heaven, or eternity.  I do hope that the deceased had believed in Jesus and gone to be with Him. 

Thinking about eternity for a moment I imagined what would happen to me if I rejected Jesus.  After death I would go down to hell where there is no water and no sunlight.  Later on Judgment Day at the great white throne of God, the Book of Life would be opened so they could find my name.  But my name would not be written there.  Tears would run down the face of Jesus because by rejecting his salvation I chose to go to the darkness and terror of hell forever.

I am so thankful and glad that what I just wrote is not the case!

I have received Jesus and I know I am saved .

Where there is opportunity we must tell others how to get to HEAVEN.

That is why we are going on Outreach to Putaruru.

Will YOU pray daily for the people to respond to the advertising of the meetings, and to come to the Plaza to meet their Saviour, our Lord Jesus?

God save Putaruru!  God save New Zealand!

This afternoon after luncheon, a few of us will be going to Putaruru to deliver Leaflets for the Outreach to be held in about 12 days from today....

Have a great day!!!

With love from .

Bruce and Jocelyn
