Busy season ahead: Numerous evangelistic events, debates and church move

The days are getting shorter, the air a little chillier and the end of financial year (in Australia) is rapidly approaching as we move into June.

New Church:

We are excited to announce that we have moved to a new church opportunity. After much prayer, Godly counsel and consideration, our family will be working alongside Pastor Ben Kwok at Rouse Hill Bible Church.

Pray for our role at the church and that we would be able to assist with the growth of the church.
