More than $A6400 was raised at a fundraising event held at Hoxton Park Seventh-day Adventist Church on Saturday night. The event involved a cultural concert and several auctions as well as the selling of food and drinks on the night. It was held to raise funds for the first Hindi-speaking Seventh-day Adventist church in Nadi, Fiji. The team now only has $2000 left to raise until they reach their fundraising goal.
“I am absolutely blown away by the support of our church family,” says Carol Boehm, coordinator of Adventist Volunteer Services. On behalf of the team, she expresses their gratitude to all who have supported and fundraised for the new church. “The team has a new determination to finish the building of this church since we owe its completion to so many that sacrificially gave.”
Pastor Terry Johnson, president of the Greater Sydney Conference, was MC on the night and said it was a true privilege for him to be there. “There’s nothing better than bringing so many different cultures together to celebrate mission in a way that’s relevant to each culture,” he commented.
