December wrap

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

Dear Beloved,

Greetings in the Lord, I trust you are well. Our December outreaches presented many opportunities to shine the light, to be the light, as commissioned by Jesus. We were able to travel to Goondiwindi, Chinchilla, Morvan and Charleville for various forms of evangelism and outreach.

Preaching the Gospel in Goondiwindi

Goondiwindi is a beautiful town situated QLD/NSW boarder. Home to some 10,000 residents, Goondiwindi presents scope for further prayer, outreach and evangelistic activity. During the outreach we set up our stage and, despite the rain, were able to bless the community, praying for the sick, preaching the gospel and sharing in the message of the kingdom of heaven. It's always good, I find, to remember the 'one'. I met a dear gentlemen who had been mixed up in drugs, relationship breakdown and a torrent of struggles. He encountered the love of Jesus and surrendered his life. A day later I met his grandmother in the main street who said she'd praying for him for years - this is Kingdom! Still, this dear man needs prayer and further healing, please pray for him individually and as a representative for so many Jesus wants to encounter. I also had the pleasure of meeting with pastors Ivan and Ros Waldock of Goondiwindi AOG, sharing vision for mission and fellowship. Bless you, Goondiwindi.

After returning home for a brief few days, catching up with some of our crew and other fellow ministers of the gospel, we had the privilege of embarking on a short trip to Charleville via Chinchilla and Morvan. As an aside, (by no means less significant) I am encouraged by what the Lord is doing in our home town amongst the body of believers, growing character and gifting daily - from glory to glory.
