Birthday Blog Competition Winners!

James Preston Reply 8:11 AM

When performing competitions, it is never easy to know that some people will miss out even though they were really, really keen.  Unfortunately, I only had 3 items I could give away for my birthday, so 3 winners it had to be.  Sorry to those of you who didn't win this time around, but remember that we will have more competitions throughout the year.  Plus you can order any of the materials on this blog my emailing me direct on sonicsubstance @ gmail . com

Congratulations to our winners!  They are:

Elize Friend
Jean Pomeroy-Ward
Adam Cruikshank

Well done guys and thanks for all of you who entered!

You guys can email me which item you would like to select from the list in the previous blog, and you can come and pick it up from my office in Pinetown!  Congratulations again!

Win A Life-Changing Book, CD or DVD on My Birthday!

James Preston 8 8:56 AM
Don't you love birthdays?  I know many people see it as another day, but I am the sentimental type, I really enjoy celebrating the day and I appreciate all the love one tends to get.  I think it's a good opportunity for people to honour one another.  We don't do it often enough in this society of ours, and so at least we make up for it a bit once a year in people's lives.

Ok, so considering today is my birthday, I want to give YOU something today!  For those that don't know, I run the bookshop at my local church in Durban (Highway Christian Community) and also have the privilege of being the primary distributor of New Nature Publication's material here in Southern Africa (We are still working on getting these powerful materials into mainline bookstores, so your prayers are appreciated!)

And so, I want to give 3 lucky (and hungry) people each a book from the selection we have in our bookshop.  Our vision is to provide material that reveals the Goodness, Grace and Love of God and equip the children of God to be everything God has qualified and made them to be and to walk in their inheritance.  To do that, we have some powerful books available!

Now, I am going to show you what we have available in our bookshop, and then I'm going to give you the chance to win.  It's really simple to win!  There are three outlets that I will be giving the book away through...  Blogger, Facebook, and Twitter.  I will choose 1 winner per platform.

In order to win, here's what you have to do for the various platforms:

Blogger:  Comment on this blog post telling me which book you want, why you want it, and how much you want it.  The most creative, inspirational, hungry comment will win the book!  You will have to keep an eye on the comments section to see if you are a winner!

Twitter:  Tweet about my blog using the link below, mentioning me (my profile link is also below) and the person with the most creative or inspirational Tweet will win!  You must use the following 2 links below:
My Twitter Profile:    @JamesPrest0n
The shortened link to my blog:

(You need to copy it exact!)

Facebook:  Post a status linking to my blog (link below) and tag me (James Preston) in the post and again, the most creative or inspirational status will win!

Don't forget to tag me in the status post, or else I won't know you've entered!

So that's how you enter!  I will announce the winners at 8am (Central African Time) tomorrow (8 February).  So good luck!

I will post the prizes to the winners wherever they may be in the world!

The winners will be able to choose any one of the following materials:
