In our journey with our Care program we see families go through really tough times. And it’s always more evident over the winter season. As temperatures drop it seems like the general mood also takes a dip in the community. Families hide indoors and often feel isolated and vulnerable. This led to us trusting for something special over this time, so that we could bless our community with a little extra surprise and encourage them to engage in fellowship.

Through the collaborate efforts of Julie O’Connell (VP Care), Shantha Nair (Indulgence Cafe) and an anonymous donor we were able to bless 29 families with coffee, movie and fuel vouchers. It came as a real surprise for the families as they came in for their usual visit only to find this little extra gift presented to them. The gifts totalled a value of over $500.

When we respond practically to the needs of others, new doors open for us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Thank you for all your support and prayer as we prepare for the next season of influence. May we see many more of these moments as we enter the future God has for us.
