The reminder to look towards the shore as we await the coming of our King was a theme that permeated the sessions and conversations at the PTC Women’s Conference last week. On Saturday 15 October, women from across the state of Victoria gathered together at the Presbyterian Theological College to sit under the teaching of guest speaker, Carmelina Read. Carmelina led the women through the book of 2 Thessalonians, encouraging them to ask themselves how they can best live today in light of the certain and final return of Jesus.
At the Presbyterian Theological College I gained a deeper understanding that I am weak, sinful and helpless, but that our God is glorious, using even unworthy sinners like me to proclaim His gospel which brings about new creation.
From my ministry experience, the biggest thing I've learnt is that it is God who builds the church. He is sovereign over everything, and anything good that happens is His doing, and it is He who deserves the glory.
We would like to preach the gospel not only to Koreans but also to everyone in Melbourne, be they homeless or rich, educated or not, Asian or white. We remember the Australian missionaries' sacrifices, and we in turn would like to sacrifice ourselves for gospel ministry in Australia. Please remember our church and pray for our future ministry journey.
