A Christmas Prayer Request

Our family wants to wish you all a wonderful Christmas season. As we walk through the city each day during this time it is hard to miss the beauty of the season and the busyness of life in Sydney. 

In amongst the silliness of the season, we want to ask you for your prayers. For the people of Australia to see that this season is not about the presents, decorations and office parties, but something more important. 

The real story behind this season is a rescue mission. A time to celebrate the arrival of the Saviour of the world. Mankind should be rejoicing with the angels who sang the praises of the Jesus’ birth. 

“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”

Please pray with us as we continue to reach out to the people of this land which has been mightily blessed by God. We hope the message of Christmas can break through the plans for holidays at the beach and revelry at the pub to the hearts of the people of Australia. 

Thank you for your prayers and support!
