Hi Maarten, Nicky and family,
I have just been checking out your website; you have done a wonderful job.
I have heard Maarten share his testimony and would encourage anyone who wants to be inspired to ask him to share at your church also.
Thank you for being who you are, for always having time for people and for always having God at the centre of all that you do.
Take care and stay safe.

Hi Pastor Maarten. Just stopped in to check out your ministry and your beautiful church. Was so awesome to read your testimony. Life with God is so great, I am learning to walk with him guiding me every day, my life has never felt so right and so whole.

Interested in your work at Waihou, having preached there on occasions as a 'fill in'
I would like to know more about the beliefs of your Church.
I am a 'retired' ordained minister of the Church of the Nazarene and would be very interested to hear from you. D.V. will endeavour to visit your church within the next two weeks. I live in Te Aroha attending Crossroads Church Pukete.
Your's in His Service.

Hi Maarten and Fam

Thank you so much for this morning you truly hit a cord with me and it meant so much as you spoke, most the time was as if you were telling my story coming from an abusive family life, without a father figure and truly struggled after military service I too hated the world…drank as if I was paid to drink…caused soo much trouble and yet never got into trouble…always been a question that…till recently when the Lord revealed to me that He was by my side since a young boy and my life has been kept together by an golden thread. I now spend many a glorious hour minding for the broken and sick at Middelmore ER. I too was in tears this morning but mainly in my heart. I have two beautiful daughters I have seen about 20 times in 6 or so years. I am still trying to figure out why the Lord has sent me around the world away from my loved ones doing His work; besides the Lord in my heart here in NZ I walk alone in His glory. Thanks a mill for this morning and you and your family be blessed in abundance with the gift of righteousness.
