Despite the negative stories of remote community closures, substance abuse, suicides and crime that are all too commonplace in the news… There is still so much good going on in the Kimberley region of Australia. The churches and mission organisations serving these isolated areas are actively doing great work in the lives of people. Indigenous leaders like Gerard Killah are champions of the faith and steadfastly keep fighting the good fight for the tribal people’s of the west Kimberley. He’s one of my heroes of the faith along with his brother Joey who I first met on my first ever visit to the Kimberley back in the winter of ’91. These men have honoured God, their families and communities so faithfully over the years and continue to put Christ first in their lives and lead the way in humility. I get inspired for life hanging around men like Gerard and Joey and their families.
