Victoria & Tasmania Conference.

July 2015, Victorian Literature Evangelist Sandy Wallis was invited to partner with the Wynyard SDA church in North West Tasmania. Sandy faithfully worked in the surrounding area finding contacts for church members to follow up.

The new contacts were given their first DVD of Beyond the Search as a gift, with further DVDs in the series shared by the Pastor and local members. The on-going visitation opens new friendship opportunities for earnest members to connect with residents in their community. With God’s Spirit moving on hearts with each visit, trust is built and hearts are won to Jesus.

Sandy met Brian (not real name) and there on his doorstep he shared about his life. Brian is an ex professional rugby player from New Zealand that is now suffering with severe back pain. Separated from his wife and missing his children very much. Brian has given up many vices and now realises what alcohol has done to his body and mind. With faithful church member visitation a friendship has developed. Just recently we received an email from Paul Borg, Wynyard church member and Literature Evangelist, saying that Brian came along to church.

Paul wrote, “This is a huge step for him. I don’t think he has ever been to church. I was over joyed when he stepped into the church….. Keep praying as God continues to lead him….. He even brought his son along and walked about 3 kms to church.”
