As a family we were hugely privileged to travel to Christchurch for Grace Baptist's Sunday service, in which the Rolleston church plant was officially commissioned. How exciting to witness the birth of a new church, born of a need for a church ministry in one of NZ's fastest growing suburbs. Joe Fleener, who was the speaker at our church camp last year, has been called and set apart as the pastor of this new work. We were amazed to see the large number of people they are starting up with already - a few families from Grace Baptist Church are moving over. We pray that the Lord grows and blesses this work and draws many to Himself through this means!

Timaru Christian School was invited to participate in a local Memory Walk to launch an Alzheimer's Awareness campaign. Students had to turn up in their school uniform, march up the main street of town holding helium balloons, then let them go after the speeches.

Here's a pretty awesome way to spend a Saturday morning - in the company of the very talented Vivienne Laursen, being treated to a 40th Birthday photo shoot! We laughed our way through much of it but Viv is so good at keeping the right tone. Thanks Viv!
