Thank you

Things have been moving at whirlwind pace. Yesterday was my last day at Matthias Media, today I am about to go on a planning weekend for the Cumberland Evangelical Christian Union, getting ready for the year.

Thank you so much to the many people who have offered their good wishes, prayers and support. Some of you I've responded to, others not (and I'm sorry about that, but still thankful). I am very aware of the kindness of friends and of the great God, the Lord Jesus, who stands behind all. This weekend with Tracey Gowing and the staff and student leaders of Cumberland ECU is going to be a great time, and I'm looking forward to new friendships, reading the Bible and praying, and whatever else the year may hold.

To be honest I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment, but also very confident that the God who led me in this new direction, as many prayed, will continue to lead me and those around me into the good works he has planned in advance for us to do.

Before I can formally begin employment I need to have a certain amount of financial support pledged (30% of the year's salary needs to be in the bank, and 50% needs to be pledged), so I need to turn my attention to this without losing sight of the gospel ministry that we are trying to work out on campus this year. If you are in the habit of praying, would you please pray that I can get on with this?

If you want information on how you can support me or the work at Cumberland, the best thing I can advise just at the moment is to contact the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students and leave your details with them so that a member of the Cumberland Support Raising group can get in contact with you.

Thank you again to those who have prayed and made contact.

Yes I will pray. Probably not in a financial position to pledge anything just now due to present overheads and commitments, but will have a look at the webpage for possible future reference.
