Dear Praying friends,
We woke up last week and the temperature was 24 degrees! How wonderfully cool the dry season is here. We praise God for 578 applications to study this year, which is another large increase over 2014. However there are only 375 places in our five courses so 200 students will miss out this year.
Terry is Dean for Anglican, Lutheran, Baptist and Pentecostal students. He is arranging for students to come for the first time from 9 new communities as well as the 16 existing communities. It is wonderful to hear the positive feedback that these new students give about their experience of studying among other Aboriginal people in a Christian college. They will go back and spread the word in their communities and our experience has been that more students will apply from these new communities next year.
The Katherine Christian Convention has now been running for 48 years and this year the speaker was Rob Haynes (former CMS missionary) speaking on Living Water telling the story from creation to new creation. We took 14 of our students to Katherine in the college bus and troopie. They came from the Anglican, Catholic and Pentecostal traditions. Most of them had never been before but were able to meet family there and share a Nungalinya item with everyone on Sunday evening. They then shared in chapel on their return that it had been a good experience for them.
- For Rob Haynes’ talks at KCC
- For our new assistant teachers
- Reconciliation and healing of relationships especially between church members in community
- Liz and the other theology teachers as they prepare new Cert. III and IV courses for 2016
Thanks you for your prayers.
Liz and Terry
