Pastor Anton Salavyov visited our Church in Marshlands Road Christchurch 31 July – 2 August.
During this time, there was a blessed Sabbath meetings. Friday evening, at the beginning of the Sabbath, there was a good opportunity for all of us. The evening service naturally continued with serious conversations in regards to Christ coming in relation to the church and individual preparation for this forthcoming event.
The Sabbath morning service was joyful time for us with many friends of our church and friends of Br. Salavyov as well. After the service and at the lunch it was a special time for Br. Salavyov and for us to experience the gladness of our nice communion together. This glad experience make us to forget to make a picture of all of us together.
The following day at a Church meeting brother Viliami Pulu was accepted into membership of the Church. Brother Viliami and Brother Ernie Gale have been actively involved in missionary work in Christchurch. Church members were very pleased to have Viliami become a member of the Christchurch Congregation.
Following acceptance of brother Viliami as a member Pastor Salavyov celebrated communion with us.
On Sunday, members of the New Zealand Mission Field took part in the reorganization of the New Zealand Mission Field. The meeting was chaired by Pastor Salavyov.
We give thanks to the Lord for His guidance and blessing.
