Skilled Trades Helper Needed

In several places of the Bible, we read how the people of Israel gladly served the Lord by building, cleaning, or repairing the temple. Sometimes people think serving the Lord is only about preaching or giving Bible studies, but there are physical needs that are also important. Without a secure building and basic maintenance, Amazing Discoveries' staff would not be able to function efficiently and the three angels' messages would not be able to be proclaimed through this ministry. We are looking for someone with experience in maintaining, renovating, and repairing our buildings on an on-going basis to keep them functional for our staff, guests, and speakers, so that they can continue to do their work of warning the world of Jesus' soon coming. Are you willing to "hold up our hands" by providing this critical and useful assistance? Our limited staff in this department are tired and worn out from all the work.

If you have experience in construction of any kind (including as cabinet maker, are hard-working, dedicated, and would like to use your talents and skills for the Lord, there may be a place available for you if you are a Canadian citizen or are able to work in Canada. You must have your own vehicle and a driver's license. Please contact us if you think you could help, so we can let you know about the various projects we need help with.

Nature Footage Donation Needed

Are you a photographer or videographer? Do you have a collection of professional nature clips that you would be willing to donate to Amazing Discoveries? We may be interested in using your work in some of our nature fillers on our TV channel. A donation of your high quality nature videos and pictures would be a significant way to contribute to AD's work.

Since we have supporters worldwide, we'd love to see nature footage from around the globe. For example, we would like to inform people about the plant Goldenseal, but because of our climate we are unable to film any at our location. But if you are in a position where you can film or photograph this and many other things in nature, we would appreciate your help in educating others.

Primarily we are looking for beautiful nature footage for nature filler. Specifically, we are looking for footage of:

  • Mountains
  • Lakes
  • Valleys
  • Forests
  • Sky
  • Water
  • Animals in their natural habitat.

In addition, we are working on a special project regarding edible plants. If you have footage of edible plants or want to take some footage for us, please contact us to find out which plants we are interested in featuring, to see which of those plants may be accessible in your area, and exactly what kind of footage we’re looking for.

Please note that all footage should be as high quality as possible. There can be no shaky or blurry shots, and there should be good composition and lighting. Also, there should be no residences or people in the footage.

This is a great way to possibly showcase your work. If we like your work and select it for use on Amazing Discoveries, we will credit all the footage and images we choose. If you are interested, please send us an email at hr @ amazingdiscoveries.org (without spaces) with some sample work.
