The Local Congregation of North Brisbane and the Caboolture Group Worship Service, both under the supervision of the Ecclesiastical District of Australia East, hosted on May 8, 2022 an evangelical mission at the Woodford Memorial Hall, 103 Archer St., Woodford, Moreton Bay Region, Queensland, followed shortly afterwards with an Aid to Humanity event.
Most of the guest-beneficiaries were migrants from the Solomon Islands, a sovereign country in Oceania, over 2,230 kilometers northeast of Queensland.
Brother Seth Gutierrez, assistant district supervising minister, taught a lesson based on the words of God written in the Bible. He expounded on the proper way of preparing for the future, most of all for the impending Judgment Day, to be assured of salvation—that is by joining the true Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ).
“We found many here who really are in need, most of whom are migrants. Through the leadership of our district supervising minister, Brother Felix Santos, we held this evangelical mission and Aid to Humanity hoping we’d be of help to them,” Brother Gutierrez said.
“Many people here who are from the Solomon Islands are interested in becoming Bible students,” North Brisbane Congregation’s resident minister Brother Mark Vasquez remarked. “It is our hope that they eventually become members of the Church Of Christ.”
It was Bronson Tanaqu, a Solomon Islander, at the time a doctrinal instructee, who invited his countrymen to attend the propagational event after sharing with them what he observed about the Church Of Christ. “For the questions I had in mind, the answer came straight from the Bible. That’s the difference [from] other religions,” he said. After the Bible study, the guests were given relief packages. — With reports from INC News Section
