But he said, "I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent."
As we depart for our final country towns tour for the year we have grateful hearts and a renewed vision for 2018. Thank you for standing with us over the past year as we’ve travelled throughout Australia encouraging local churches and communities in the bush. 31 years ago Kerrie and I both saw the great need for evangelism in remote and rural regions but never imagined back then that God was calling us to a lifetime of serving through music and missions. Three decades later we see the significance of travelling those long distances just to tell people how important they are to God. We constantly meet people who have come to faith in Christ through a humble concert in the town hall many years ago. It is inspiring.
Our vision for 2018 is ‘Hope for Hurting Towns’ and we plan to once again go wherever we get invited. Whether its regions devastated by droughts, cyclones, bushfires, floods, the ice epidemic, unemployment or depression…. we know that the message of hope that comes through the Gospel always brings revival to people.
In Luke chapter 4 Jesus spoke out these words.
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free".
We are all called to this magnificent mission, to bring good news, to help people find freedom and help them see the way. We value your prayers and support as we begin to make plans for the coming season.
