Safety and Snags

On Wednesday a few of us had a great time helping a Safety Group of the Maroondah City Counsel do a survey about the perceived safety in Croydon.  They put on a free barbie and asked passers-by to complete a survey.  For the barbie bit they had asked us whether we could lend them our barbie that we use every Friday at the 'corner house' and maybe also be around and help with the survey.  We had a real fun time mingling with and getting to know people that we normally don't spend much time with, because they like offices and we like fresh air. ;)  People that are part of our 'family' or we would hang out with on Croydon Main St. would come over and start a conversation with the nice policeman or other safety people that normally they would have nothing to do with, or would run away from for that matter.  We are continuing to see walls come down in our community and are very excited to be apart of it.  We now have a wonderful relationship with The Shire, the local Police, and many of the Traders, thankyou to all that make up our special community and to those that continue to support us and pray for us.  It was just beautiful to see such a variety of people mingling and having fellowship together.  And the snags were 1st class.  Thank you Father.  Ulf

Farewell Chris!

On Saturday, 17th April, we gathered to farewell Chris, who has been living in the guys' house, supporting and encouraging them, for the past year. He leaves us for an adventure with God, to Samoa.  We have been incredibly blessed to have him be part of our lives, getting alongside others and sharing Jesus around.

Right: Chris shows us where he's going...!

Right: We gather to pray for him.

Bye Chris, we'll all miss you!
