I've got a job!

Thanks to those of you who have been praying. I will be starting work this Saturday as campus director with the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (AFES), based on the Cumberland Campus of Sydney University.

The AFES group I'll be associated with is the Evangelical Christian Union. I consider it a great privilege and honour to be invited to work with these friends.

Basically it's the same job that I did at Melbourne University from 1989-1999. In God's grace, I also had a hand in starting the Cumberland University Church, which has now become a part of Berala Anglican church within the St Paul's Carlingford Group of churches.

Fifi and I couldn't be happier, and the girls are excited too.

Congrats, Gordo, just sorry we won't see more of you, but you'll be glad not to move states again! God's blessings on your ministry.

Well done Gordon. I'm glad (for our sakes) that you're still in Sydney. Now I need to tell all the uni students I know to enroll in Cumbo.

Praise God indeed Gordon. AFES is truly blessed to have you!

[Rather oddly, I'll probably see you more, now that you are working with AFES, then when you were working upstairs! :)]
