Passing the fire stick
WE HAVE BEEN believing for more workers to come into indigenous ministry as part of our vision for the northern territory. Praise God our prayers are being answered! Over the past few years, a few have come to stay and several more have made short-term visits. Recently, another young family has arrived from Victor Harbor. Tim, a member of this family, is serving as a youth worker at Belyuen, our home community. Soon after he arrived, Tim prayed for a local man to receive his sight in one blind eye and praise God, the man said, ‘Now I can see!’
Also, just recently, Roger took three Wadeye men on a ‘glory tour’ down south, visiting many of the folks who have been on short trips to the territory. God’s presence was powerfully touching lives as we travelled about blessing others. This has been part of our dream, that indigenous Australians would take the presence of God like a fire stick to other cultures throughout Australia.
