A very enthusiastic group of 16 Jump Start Literature Evangelists, MAGAbook Literature Evangelists and interested church members canvassed in the surrounds of Avondale College for four weeks during June and July. We spent the first week at Singleton Church with Pr Miroslav, two weeks at Maitland Church with Pr Lyle Southwell and Associate Pr Braeden Entermann and their three Bible workers, and the final week staying at Wallsend Polish church with Pr Michael Lilikakis.
We spent almost 700 hours on the doors, distributing almost 8500 letterbox cards, praying with 149 people, establishing 69 contacts who are expecting a church member or a bible worker to follow up and the best news is that almost 70% of the books sold or given away were spiritual!
One teenage Jump Start Literature Evangelist from Queensland, Franco Olak, sold and gave away 37 copies of The Great Controversy Ended in a single day!
We worked in one territory, out of one van, with one mission, to reach as many people as possible with life-saving literature.
It was an absolute pleasure to serve such a godly, committed and converted group of mostly young people. There were very many happy times, singing, praying, canvassing, cooking and eating together.
Plans are being laid for a bigger and better outreach next winter, as well as a summer holiday canvassing program. Avondale College Theology students, Harley Southwell and Fine Paiaaua took advantage of a pilot scholarship offered by Avondale College.
We praise God for the souls that we were able to touch with God’s truth… truly, His word will not return to Him void.
