Rev Kant Visits Kiwis

Bryce Turner - 16 August 2019

Following the Solomon Islands and Australia, Rev Cornelis Kant was able to fit in a brief but busy three-days in New Zealand. Arriving in Auckland late on Monday 22 July, Cornelis had a solid day of meetings and engagements on Tuesday with the team from Christians for Israel NZ. While modern technology allows almost effortless communication; it is quite different to be able to meet with people in person. Meeting with the Christians for Israel NZ Board gave Cornelis a great opportunity to see firsthand how the NZ affiliate operates, to share in the plans and projects for the future, and to gain an even deeper understanding of the Christians for Israel branches throughout the South Pacific. The work of Christians for Israel is growing steadily in the Pacific Islands with a wonderful team of dedicated local leaders in each island nation, who are supported by the New Zealand office. Cornelis also met with the team who, together with an international editorial panel, produce Israel and Christians Today. Having regularly communicated via email, managing editor Cathy Coldicutt in person. After a gruelling schedule of meetings, Cornelis then joined the entire Christians for Israel NZ team and their families for dinner on Auckland’s spectacular waterfront.

Cornelis’ final day in NZ included a visit to the Chief Rabbi of the Auckland Hebrew Centre, and coffee with Perry and Sheree Trotter, directors of Shadows of Shoah. A time of great encouragement to the New Zealand team, it was great to have Rev Cornelis come to visit us.
