Thankful

We can't believe it. It is only literally weeks before we
arrive back home to begin a new church in Brisbane!

As I look back over the last year there is one word that best describes my feelings: THANKFULNESS. I am moved with thankfulness to God for this time of growth as a person, leader and as a family. I am thankful to Pastors' David Putman and Shawn Lovejoy for investing in me and this new church. I am thankful for the people who are Mountain Lake Church, for their love and generosity to my family. I'm thankful for the vision and generosity of the Presbyterian Church of Qld, Australia and the relationships forged with various other churches and organisations who are encouraging this new church. I am also deeply thankful to God for the grace and generosity that YOU our friends and family have shown by supporting us during this time of training. Your prayers, letters, cards and support have been so encouraging to my family and I. They have been God's grace at work in our lives. Thank you.

God Bless in the next chapter of your journey mate.

It was great connecting in the USA.

Hey it was great to meet you too and I look forward to keeping in touch and seeing what God continues to do in and through you - don't forget Australia, we need men like you to keep leading forward.

Will we have loved having you with us for the last year. I am sad to see you go but it is a GREAT thing that our church has something to do with the marvelous work that will be done in Brisbane! We can't wait to see what God does there through you! The Majeruses are your friends for life. Maybe we'll see you down under sometime in the NEXT year! Love to you, Nerida and the boys from me, Randy and the girls!

Pam - you and Randy, Molly and Maggie ROCK! We will miss you dearly, but never forget the way you have welcomed and loved our family so well this past year.
