Last night the Australian Presbyterian World Mission report was presented to the General Assembly of Australia. A highlight of the segment was the signing of a a partnership agreement with the Presbyterian work of Japan by the Moderator the Rev John Wilson, and the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Japan, the Rev Kiyoshi Endo. Visitors from overseas churches — Rev Thang Bwee (Myanmar), Pastor Roy Yosef (Vanuatu), and Rev Hiralel Solanki (India) were all personally acknowledged with a presentation made by the Moderator.
Following the APWM report the Assembly received the report of the Relations With Other Churches committee and some of the other overseas visitors addressed the Assembly — John Nicholls (Moderator Free Church of Scotland) and David Bayne told us about the work of the Free Church and Grace Presbyterian Church of New Zealand respectively.
It was a very encouraging evening!
