NEW ZEALAND—A diversity of nationalities, cultures, and races united and gathered in multiple venues as the Ecclesiastical District of New Zealand conducted evangelical missions and Aid to Humanity activities on March 30 to 31, 2019.
Kiwis, Asians, Tongans, Samoans, Tukelauans, Kiribatis, and Maoris were among those who received the good news of salvation.
Brother Dennis Dahunan, district supervising minister, led the undertaking of the activities. Ministers and ministerial workers assigned in the district preached in their respective houses of worship.
In preparing for these events, the brethren invited and brought with them their loved ones, friends, and acquaintances to listen to the teachings of the Bible upheld by the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ).
Brother Marco Mangune, minister of the gospel, shared, “With the help of our Lord God, it was a great success. There came many visitors and had a positive response. Hopefully, we can again invite them to continue listening to the teachings of our Lord God.”
Bwena Maunaia, a Kiribati who invited her family members and friends, shared, “The word of God and the message that were shared with us, with all the videos that were showed to us, gave a wider thinking of what God is expecting from us. I know that my friends have their own beliefs but I want them to come and know more about spiritual life.”
Families and individual guests alike whom the brethren accompanied to the evangelical missions received goodwill packages containing various goods and commodities at the conclusion of the activity. — With reports from INC News Section
