JUNIOR/TEEN CAMP 2018

Junior and Teen camps are always fun and a great way to make new friends and grow spiritually. 2018’s camps were
no exception. For the first time in many years JET camp split into a Junior and a Teen camp with Junior camp
running first followed by Teens. Junior camp started on Tuesday afternoon the 17th of April and ran through the first
week of the school holidays. It was preceded by a Staff camp to prepare and train the staff which started on Sunday
night the 15th of April. Junior camp was well supported with a total of 37 Junior campers and 20 staff coming from
the Coast, Orange, Bathurst, Narromine, Wagga Wagga, Griffith, Albury, Tumut, Southern Highlands and Canberra
Activities included mountain bikes, Go-Karts, Water sports, Laser force, a Service Activity and two special activities;
Reptiles and a Helicopter Joy Flight. All of the activities were enjoyed by the campers with many campers trying new
activities for the first time and some conquering their fear of flying in the helicopter.
Pastor Brendan Pratt was the guest speaker for the week and did a fabulous job of helping the campers understand
what God is really like. The theme was “Encounter” and the bible text was Jeremiah 29:13. On Friday night Pastor
Brendan gave each of the campers and staff a chance to make a commitment for Jesus by hanging a peg somewhere
on a long piece of string. The place they put the peg represented where they were up to in their journey with God,
from just starting out, bible studies, baptism and being fully committed and wanting to tell others about Jesus. It was
great to see that 3 campers committed their life to Jesus, 15 requested Bible Studies, 15 requested Baptism sometime
in the future, 8 wanted to help lead others to Jesus, 14 wanted to join a Pathfinder Club and 16 wanted to find a church
After a couple of days break Teen camp started on Tuesday the 24th of April. Again, campers came from all across
the conference as well as some new staff. In total there were 53 campers who enjoyed the fun, fellowship and spiritual
focus. Activities included: Horse Riding, Street Art, Go-Karts, Mountain Bikes, Rock Climbing, White Water Rafting,
Water Sports, a Service Activity and a Helicopter ride. As part of ANZAC day commemorations, a large group of teens
attended the dawn service in Jindabyne. It was sobering for the campers to hear the names of young people from the
local area who lost their lives fighting for their country.

The guest speaker at Teen camp was Pastor Christos Spero. The theme was “Definitive” and the key text was Romans
12:2. On Friday night Pastor Christos challenged the teens and staff to make a decision for Jesus and to exchange the
red ribbon they had been given for a white ribbon which was hanging on the cross at the front. 18 campers requested
bible studies,16 campers requested baptism, 16 campers wanted to help lead others to Jesus, 3 campers wanted to
find a church to attend and 7 campers wanted to join a Pathfinder club.
One special feature and a highlight of Teen camp was the baptism on Sabbath afternoon. 5 people publicly committed
their lives to Jesus and were baptised by Pr. Justin Lawman and Pr. Phil Yates in a sunset baptism in Lake Jindabyne.
Congratulations to Jasmine and Johanna Tooby, Malachi and Chaya Wells and Kayla Walkom.
To finish the day off the teens had a bonfire and a talent night with many great acts that included singing, cultural
dances, skits and the Haka.
Junior and Teen camps in 2018 were awesome! A big thank you to all the people who volunteered as staff giving of
their time, energy and resources to make the camps run. Special thanks Stan and Bron and all the AAV staff and the bus
drivers all of whom went above and beyond the call of duty. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Junior and
Teen camps in the 2019 Easter school holidays!

On Sabbath, April 14 Pr Owen Ellis was ordained at Bowral Church and what a wonderful service it was. Many had
come from the surrounding churches to celebrate this special day in Pr Owen’s life.
The church had been beautifully decorated with a table on the platform displaying the spiritual gifts of Pastor Ellis as
recognised by his church members.
Bowral Church had been thinking of many creative ways to make the ordination service very special. A number of
musical items were presented and for the prayer of ordination by Pr Mike Faber (the President of our Conference) the
church family was invited to surround the pastoral couple in order to show their support and appreciation.
Later in the service Pr Faber and Pr Brendan Pratt (AUC Ministerial Secretary who took the sermon) each lit a
candle and passed the light on to the candle Pr Ellis was holding who then lit the candles of different church members
representing various groups of the church from children to the elderly. This was a lovely idea showing that we all need
each other and if we each light our candle, together we can light the world and make a difference in our church and in
the community around us.
We wish Pastor Owen Ellis and his family God’s richest blessings as they continue their ministry in our Conference.

What a wonderful spot, scenery fantastic - all agreed we will come back
at another time and explore more of the surrounding area.
Unexpectedly we had a change of speaker: Akhil Ashtaputre, a young
man who is very enthusiastic about spreading the “Good News.” Akhil is
currently working as bible worker with Pastor Justin Lawman at Canberra
National Church. We thoroughly enjoyed his presentations and wish him
well in his plans for the future.

We particularly liked Akhil’s Sunday morning worship where he presented 7
steps to assist in the resistance of temptation. One of the ladies kindly took
notes and I have the details. If anyone would like a copy just send a request

We had a number of new faces from Wagga, Parkes, Bathurst, Canberra,
Yass, Albury, Southern Illawarra, and familiar faces from Sydney joining us
once again as well as faithful attendees from SNSW.
Views from “The Lookout”, spectacular. Grounds of the Holiday Park
are also wonderful being on the Lake Edge and trees surrounding this
facility. The outdoor fully equipped kitchen with balcony eating area was a
fantastic venue for our Sabbath afternoon discussion/snack time and later our
evening BBQ. We had several cabins and 2 bungalows one of which we
used for the morning meetings on Sabbath and later Sabbath night for the
entertaining items after our BBQ.

Evangelisitic series in India
In February/March 2018 my wife and I conducted an evangelistic series in India. This was the 4th mission we run in
Andhra Pradesh, and it was the most rewarding by far. We had been invited by the Secretary for NEAS (North East
Andhra Section), Pr MG Rao, whom we worked with in 2015.
We financed the evangelistic series which was held in a village about 45 minutes’ drive from Parvatipuram where we
stayed with Pr MG and his wife. The meetings were held outdoors alongside the SDA church in the village – matting
was spread out and most people sat on the ground though there were chairs at the rear for the older folk. As it was not
the monsoon time there was little risk of rain.
Nine villages having a SDA presence were invited to the meetings which ran for 15 consecutive nights. We arranged for auto
rickshaws to transport the people to the location. One of the wonders of “incredible India” is how they manage to pack
so many people into these small vehicles. We were led to believe there would be around 400 people attending each
night but including those listening in the village a count revealed an attendance of 700 – 750 each meeting.
Life in India is not easy. The village people work in the fields from 6am to 6pm then go home to bathe and eat. In order
to get to the meetings which started at around 7.15pm and finished around 9.45pm, they then had to take a 30 minute
to 1-hour ride. It never ceases to amaze and inspire us to witness the enthusiasm both young and old have for hearing
the great truths of the Bible.
Each night my wife Angela started the meetings with a children’s story power point (on the theme of the message to the
adults) followed by a short health talk. Then an offering was taken up while a (usually long) special item was featured.
The Christians in the villages love to sing and make a joyful noise unto the Lord. We had power point presentations
that were in the Telegu language and my words were translated, which meant I had to keep the messages short and
“waffle-free”. We had very good feedback indicating that the people understood what was presented. One Science
teacher came to me after one meeting and thanked me – in good English – for making the messages so clear that he
could now explain them to his Sunday-keeping friends.
Page 6 | 7 - IMPRINT - to be and grow flourishing followers of Jesus
Toward the end of the evangelistic series the pastors
baptized 102 people – male and female, young and
not so young. My wife and I were happy to present the
candidates Bibles in their Telegu language.
On the last night the President of the
Conference made a gracious speech, thanking us for
coming such a long way to bring such clear messages
to the people. He also thanked us for making the
financial sacrifice. Then he made this amazing statement
– “We Indians believe that the white people from
Australia have a much closer walk with God than we
do. We covet that relationship with Jesus.”
In my reply speech I tried to put things in their
correct bearings. I said – “In fact we are the ones
who are blessed by being with the village people as
we can learn how to have a walk with Jesus that is as
strong as yours.” I expressed the view that we were
so fortunate to be with a people that Jesus would
call “the salt of the earth”. As the President spoke
I thought of the Beatitudes – “blessed are they that
hunger and thirst after righteousness”, “blessed are
the pure in heart” etc.
Roger Kerr presenting a bible after the baptism
We left India refreshed and humbled –
and in wonder that a people who have so
little of the “things” of this world are so blessed
(happy, fortunate). Yes, we can explain the Bible
to the people and make His message clear and
simple - but we have much to learn when it comes to
having “the peace that passes understanding” that is
evident in the lives of these dear people. They asked
us “when will you come back”? Well, God-willing
we will come back – because we “covet” their walk
with the Lord and we can learn much from them!

Canberra National is sponsoring two Bible workers this year who are working with the pastoral
team in the community studying the bible.
Akhil, born in India, grew up in USA and has spent the last 7 years living in Australia. He has
joined us from Kingscliff/Tweeds area where he has been working as a Bible Worker for the
last two years. Akhil has quickly integrated himself into the Canberra
National Community sharing his passion for people and sharing his
love of Jesus and has been networking across the community working
with the pastors and elders in visiting and studying with people.
Akhil is planning to stay in Canberra for a few years as he studies
Theology via distance education.
Ruth, born in Buenos Aires in Argentina, has graduated from a Theology Degree as well as a
degree in Medicine. Ruth, though shy, has a passion for sharing Jesus, loves being here and
is studying with people in the local community. God speaks to Ruth through nature and she
enjoys spending time in the great outdoors.
At present the Pastoral team together with the Bible Workers have approximately 53 people that they are studying with.
Exciting things are happening at Canberra National.

Ride 4 Rescue
Registrations now open
Thirty six charity riders conquered their fears and ate courage for breakfast
by riding from Parliament House in Canberra to Mt Kosciuszko which was
over 420 kms for the ‘Guns’ with plenty of elevations between. The causes,
firstly the ADRA Blossom Project for teenage girls in Vanuatu to help with education
and services to prevent early pregnancy and provide support services
for teens who get pregnant so they can finish their education. The second
charity involved in the ride is Restore One which seeks to break the cycle of
poverty in Cambodia through housing, education, employment and health
initiatives. As a team the goal was to raise $50,000 for the Charities ($25,000
per Charity) which was reached just a week after the ride with money still
Jared Bentley was new to Ride4Rescue this year. Jared is an experienced
mountain biker who has participated in many previous charity rides and yet he
found this to be one of the most enjoyable and challenging rides he has experienced. Jared Bentley says “The comradery was
second to none, heaps of fun, fantastic scenery, everyone is there for a common cause, and the organisers are not only passionate
about the cause but also passionate about riding and having fun as a group. The support crew made you feel like a sponsored rider
and this is a seriously challenging ride so be well prepared.”
Day one of the ride is 94 kms and 1,631m climbs and includes a team photo at Parliament House in Canberra, morning tea at
Stromlo Mountain Bike Park before heading out of mobile service range to Cotter Dam for lunch. Then there was the killer climb up
to Piccadilly Circus which was anything but a circus, but the afternoon tea at the top was worth it. Dinner, bed & breakfast was at a
private 100+ year old homestead and property in the beautiful Brindabella Ranges.
Day two was 65 kms with 1,601m climb and took us through National Parks all day with lunch at the historical Cooinbil Hut on
Long Plain Road with plenty of wild Brumies along the way before heading for a luxurious overnight stay in the newly renovated
Yarrangobilily Caves House. Day three was 98kms and 1,892m climb starting on Long Plain Road, lunch at the Murrumbidgee River
Trail before riding into Angler’s Reach on the Lake Eucumbene. Dinner was with the locals in the friendly small town of Adaminaby
near the base of Mt Selwyn.
Day four was 98 km and 1,556m climb around Lake Eucumbene Dam with a long haul up to Eucumbene Lookout for morning tea.
A nice ride downhill to lunch at Eucumbene Dam Observation Point before riding into Jindabyne to test out the new mountain bike
tracks around Jindabyne Lake all the way into town. There is one last killer hill on Tinworth Drive as you head into the Adventist
Alpine Village functioning as a cool down after a very long day. The riders said this was the toughest day. Riders always had the
option of jumping on the faithful school bus provided by Avondale School with the trusty driver of Mr Graham Head also towing the
Central Coast Adventist School bike trailer.
Our hosts at the Adventist Alpine Village in Jindabyne had the chalets prepared for everyone, delicious food with a large comfortable
lounge room for debriefing and fun after dinner. The ride organisers acknowledge the generous support of the Adventist
Alpine Village in their support of this ride.
Day five was the last day of the ride including a 64km ride, 1,631m climb. Morning tea at Spencers Creek, ride through Charlotte’s
Pass and onto Rawson’s Pass before leaving the bikes there for the last 1.6 walk to the top of Mount Kosciuszko. Celebrations at the
top and remembering how God had protected the group and given strength to everyone on the team. Then for the long ride back
down to the Adventist Alpine Village which was anything but cruisy. Lara Hawkins aged 14 rode all the way back to the village from
the summit and arrived back with a big smile, after enjoying some sweeping downhill runs and feeling ecstatic at the accomplishment
of the week.
Nathaniel Ginn did the very first Ride4Rescue with his Mum back in 2015 when they rode over 1,000 kms for the ADRA Blossom
project in Vanuatu. Now after the 3rd Ride4Rescue which is now a joint charity ride between Restore One (Cambodia) and the
Blossom Project of Vanuatu, Nathaniel Ginn says “It started with just Mum & I, now Ride4Rescue is an annual event that has grown
rapidly into 36 riders that range in abilities from young enthusiasts to the some super experienced mountain bike riders.” Evidence
again that God’s ideas may start small but they grow bigger and better than we ever could imagine.
A very big thank you to Sanitarium Health & Wellbeing who have been Ride4Rescue’s main sponsor with all 3 events. Registration
is now open for Ride4Rescue in 2019. www.ride4rescue.org/ This is set to be an unforgettable experience. Each rider commits to
fundraising $1,500 each prior to the ride commencing.

Church Working Bee
Country Cootamundra church members had a huge surprise mid-week visit in March
from SNSW President, Pr. Michael Faber. The president was coming back from
meetings in Albury and Narromine and thought that he would simply catch up with a
couple of ministers in the area on his way back through to Canberra. It was a surprise
for everyone as Pr. Faber didn’t expect to see the church so busy on a Wednesday
The church members were certainly surprised to have Pr. Faber on the doorstep of
their small country church, but they were happy to see the interest that he had in them
and their church. While members were certainly buoyed by the visit they are doing this
not just for their church but for the love of God. Cootamundra church members over
the last month have been working ‘every week’ to improve their church both inside
and out. Everything is on the hit list from church kitchen to the organ; from the roof to
the floor nothing will escape some attention.
Pr. Mike Faber outside the church
The program has been helped by material donations made by its sister church at Wagga Wagga with a future offer to
help replace some kitchen shelving. Maintenance is good stewardship as we have learned from last quarter’s lessons.
Unlike the story in 2 Chronicles 24 with King Joash rebuilding the temple; everyone is excited to help, and we don’t
have to put a big chest outside the church to fundraise at this stage. Age is no barrier and fortunately their local
Minister is a little younger than Judah’s chief priest Jehoidah was at the time, so he is able to help lend a hand as well.
This is just the first step to improve our church as we look at growing our church. All of the churches in our SNSW
Conference have been developing at the local church level, a 4-year strategic plan in line with the goals that we as
members most felt would benefit each of our churches from the last session. Even the retired Cootamundra members
don’t want to be left behind.

Endless Praise one of Australia’s longest operating Christian
vocal band is celebrating their 34th anniversary by
touring across the country in 2018. On Sabbath, April 21 the group
visited Nowra Seventh-day Adventist Church for a live performance.

along to church to hear a special worship service in music. A buffet
lunch was enjoyed after the service by all who attended.
Over the last 34 years various singers have joined the group - often for 2-year periods. Their performances have also
included concerts internationally. Currently there are 6 members in the group - Mikayla, Hailey, Anthony, Nelson, Steve
& Spencer who come from Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and New Zealand. Their music and shared life
experiences are truly inspirational. Endless Praise offers a variety of Christian music styles including Traditional, Blend
or Contemporary. The group also conducts school music workshops that focus on encouraging a positive behavioural
attitude for all the students.

Children washing cars
Our Children’s Sabbath School Rooms were in need of a bit
of a make-over. So, in March a car washing fundraiser was
organised by the parents and teachers. Adam Blandin de Chalain,
Christine Duff, Samantha Hobson and our Church Pastor Bogdan
Petrovic worked alongside the 10 children.
Light refreshments were provided inside the church cottage for the
car owners by Christine Johnston and Allison Blandin de Chalain while
the children were busy out in the church carpark. It was a very hot
day so the kids got just as wet as the cars while hosing themselves
down at the same time. Over $200 were raised for the much-needed
improvements of our Children’s Sabbath School Rooms. Well done

Chocolate Easter Eggs were donated by church members so that the
children could make up some small sachet gift bags with coloured
designs. Over 80 of these gifts attached with a bible text were taken
to the children’s ward of the local hospital, the women’s refuge centre
and a nearby nursing home.
The nursing home residents and the staff were very happy to have
such a lively young bunch of visitors and were very thankful for the
friendly and caring visit from the children and their parents.

A sad goodbye
George came to live with Paul and Marion Campbell and their family in July
2016. After a short amount of time George Joseph Charles Campbell decided
that he wanted to be baptized. He was very adamant about this. Arrangements
were made for his baptism. He studied with Pr. Dragan Kanazir and was baptized
at Handkerchief Bay, near Narooma in NSW, with other Wallaga Lake people – in
November of 2017. George was a young man for whom being baptized was ‘my
dream come true’ as he said to the pastor on his baptism day. Then not too many
Sabbaths ago George had died.
Just 5 months after his public acknowledgment of his love for Jesus, Jesus love
for him and his desire to let others know about that love. He was a prankster and
tormenter, funny and fun-loving. He was a willing worker and helper around
Wallaga Lake Koori Village. His passing has touched many Aboriginal communities
across NSW. He lived knowing that Jesus was coming soon to take with Him all
who love Jesus. George loved Jesus.
