In May FOI-New Zealand and Australia Ministry Representatives, together with our wives, travelled to the US for the FOI International Staff Conference held at Sandy Cove Ministries Centre in Maryland just outside Philadelphia.

There we met our colleagues from across the globe, many whom we hadn't seen in six years since the last conference, and many new staff who have joined the mission since that time. The theme of the conference was "All Our Heart" and challenged us to continue what the Lord has called us to personally and as a mission. This was a good opportunity to reaffirm our own convictions as individuals and a collective to proclaim biblical truth about Israel & The Messiah and bringing comfort to Jewish people at every opportunity in these last days.


In the days just prior to our staff conference the International Ministries team received training to raise personal support as we shift to a funding model like most other mission organisations. Currently our staff support is mostly from US and international donations with a small portion from within New Zealand. Our Ministry Representative positions are funded through "earmarked" gifts and our adminstrative staff are funded through general funds all provided by our faithful and generous supporters.

We are looking to the the Lord to continue to provide for our ministry workers and continue to trust Him to send additional financial partners in the days ahead as we remain committed wholeheartedly to what we have been called to do.

So we especially give thanks for those who regularly and faithfully give and pray for our work already.

Will you join us as we prayerfully seek the Lord to increase our financial partnerships with those led by the Lord who with all their hearts would be willing to share in our mission here in New Zealand?

Finally, if you would like to either give for the first time, increase your giving or find out more ways to give, especially to help support our Ministry Representatives, then please contact our Auckland Office or go online to our giving page

“We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers,”

(1 Thessalonians 1:2, ESV)
