A New Year dawns
2019 is up and running. The new year’s resolutions are potentially bygone memories!

For the ongoing provision for David and Susie and the children who are in the process of building a partnership team so they can depart Australia in the middle of 2020 to live and work amongst the Yawo people in Malawi. They are seeking opportunities in South Australia and Northern Territory to share their story and what is happening amongst the Yawo.
For what will happen through the ongoing contribution of our cross-cultural workers in their settings. The feedback of provision and transformation continues to stimulate much joy. Rob and Deb report how God is working in a woman they befriended who was barren and feeling ashamed as a consequence. This woman is now expecting a child.
For opportunities to meet and share stories within the Baptist Churches of South Australia in the coming months. The annual Global Inspire event (March 16 at Richmond Baptist), the young adult initiative entitled Unearthed (February 26 at Baptist Centre) and May Missions Month are opportunities to inspire participation and prayer and stir people’s hearts to serve and go.
The State Office looks forward to engaging with you throughout 2019. May you have a rich and rewarding year too as God works through you as you bless others. For more information about our upcoming events, to have Global Interaction share at your church or for any other information, email us firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 8357 1755.
