At Katoomba Easter Convention we believe when God’s word is preached, lives are changed. For this reason, we ask gifted preachers to join us each year to proclaim the life-changing message of the gospel for our good and God’s glory.
We are thrilled to have Matt Fuller (Christ Church, Mayfair, UK) and Daniel I. Block (Wheaton College, Illinois, USA) on the platform at KEC in 2020.
There are many along the way who have inspired me at different times in different ways by their godly example or a word in season. "The wise in heart are called discerning, and gracious words promote instruction." Proverbs 16: 21
Most recently, my dear friend Sam died of a thyroid cancer she had been fighting for 11 years. The cancer finally out ran the drugs. She loved the Lord Jesus and longed to die well. And she did.
"For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" completely summed up her last years. Her desire to share the gospel with her family and friends right till her last breath really challenged my apathy and reticence in my own personal evangelism. She was a Head teacher who was loud, funny and confident but eventually she lost her voice through invasive surgery so she learnt to sign so that she could continue to sing the Lord's praises.
