What a privilege to serve! To minister to people in their homes and on the doorstep. To bring good news of salvation through the printed page to many that would not otherwise come to our church or seek out our literature. Only eternity will reveal the full impact of our visits with people.

Last week I had the joy of working along-side our Hobart Pastors. After a time of worship, prayer and a wholesome breakfast, we set out to meet our neighbours around the Glenorchy and New Norfolk churches, offering our freshly reprinted classic book,The Desire of Ages as a special gift from the Seventh Day Adventist church.

Conference president Pr Gary Webster wrote, “I was able to get all my Desire of Ages into homes…. a great blessing. We need to do it again…” It was also good working with our team of LE’s and then to meet together for our end of year dinner, enjoying a time of reflection and fellowship. Once again Paul Borg was awarded Tasmanian LE of the Year. Congratulations Paul! And congratulations to Geoff and Sylvia Wall who received the Victorian LE of the year award.

Year 2018 was full of many opportunities to share the story of Jesus and His soon coming through our many excellent books and media. We will continue to share such good news into the coming new year.
