God has expanded the work in a big way ...

Advent Books was established in 1994 by Jonathan Bennett at the age of 16 from these early days God has expanded the work in a big way, reaching millions of homes, sending out thousands of books and Bible Studies.

In 1996 our first bulk mailing went out to 3,518 homes. At the time it was a great leap for Advent Books but now 10 years later it looks like a small step in comparison with over 1 Million being sent out in 2013.

We always believe in getting the right tools to do the job at Advent Books; this is why in 1997 we bought our first printing machine and as we expanded and sent out more leaflets, we bought more printing machines until we now have a total of 5.

At first we ordered copies of The Great Controversy books from the local Seventh-day Adventist printing house in quantities of hundreds then in thousands. Nowadays we order at one time 50,000 copies of The Great Controversy books to be printed.  It is grand to see them being sent out to people requesting them after reading the Great Controversy leaflet.

From the small beginning until now, over 21 million homes have now been reached and 31,000 copies of The Great Controversy have been sent out. Praise God for this. A great work has been done but so many more souls need to receive the truth.

By April 2013 nearly 79% of Great Britain will have been covered. To put that in perspective, that is as if the whole of Australia has received a leaflet or as if every home in Denmark had received a leaflet 5 times. We thank God that now over 15,600 people have also requested the postal Bible lessons which are sent out by another ministry. Praise God for this but keep praying for the work.

People are coming to the truth. The Holy Spirit is convicting people and they are being baptised.

You may be reading this and thinking God is certainly moving the work forward in Great Britain and this is true but as the saying goes we have only just seen the tip of the iceberg in front of us.

God increases (to God be the glory)Back in the summer of 1994, Jonathan Bennett from England (aged 16) was invited to go to a camping weekend to distribute literature in a nearby town. Once all was organised for this weekend and all packed, Jonathan's friend dropped him and 2 other friends at the camp organiser's house for the weekend to begin. The camp organiser drove the three boys to the camp site with the car packed with all the essentials...

Lessons from the Folding Machine Do you remember what was the most often used way that Jesus taught the multitude - parables. The people could remember Jesus' words every time they saw the everyday things that Jesus spoke about. (I can well remember one parable from years ago, about fruit picking)...

An Impressive Scene In the visions of the night a very impressive scene passed before me. I saw an immense ball of fire fall among some beautiful mansions, causing their instant destruction. I heard someone say: "We knew that the judgments of God were coming upon the earth, but we did not know that they would come so soon." Others, with agonized voices, said: "You knew! Why then did you not tell us? We did not know." On every side I heard similar words of reproach spoken.

From Rags to... Better Rags For many of us when it comes to finances and the Lords' work we think however will enough money come in to finish the Lords work. But rarely do we think what more can I do to help sacrifice for my Lord and raise more finances to save souls in the Kingdom of heaven. If Christ could have this attitude:- "Jesus did not count heaven a place to be desired while we were lost." DA416 then how much more can we do for our Lord?
