MAF NEWS

FUEL FOR FATHER'S DAY

Father's Day is fast approaching, and again MAF (Missionary Aviation Fellowship) is seeking 'Fuel for Father's Day.' You can purchase a jerry can gift card for your dad, with all funds going to help keep MAF in the air supporting remote communities. Gift cards can be purchased from the MAF desk in the church foyer.


GOD AT WORK IN THE MAF COMMUNITY

Praise God for the ten medevac flights MAF were able to do in the last two weeks. Their youngest patient was a two-day-old baby boy! Praise God for the growth of the church in Timor-Leste. This week, MAF flew the adult children of missionaries who worked here in 1963, when it is believed that there were only four Protestant believers in the whole country. Today there are thousands! Continue to pray for wisdom, creativity and energy for Jason and Kim Job as they serve in Timor-Leste, and as they parent Sam and seek to listen to the Lord’s direction each day.

More From 'Bulletin'

Bulletin I 9th December 2018

PREACHER'S PEN | Graeme Holmes

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.” (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.” - John 21:15-19 ESV

Bulletin I 25th November 2018

PREACHER'S PEN | Ryan Windle

“Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus ), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” - John 21:1-7 NIV

It’s that time of year again when Amy Day is looking for people who would like to sponsor campers to attend the summer camps at CYC El Shaddai. It allows children to go to camp who would otherwise not be able to afford to go.

One of our own young people in our fellowship has been able to attend camp for the past 9 years thanks to the generosity of those who have given throughout the years. She has blossomed in her faith and is now giving back and mentoring other young campers coming through. This is an example of how your giving will have eternal benefits.

If you have a child who would like to go, but you are unable to afford the camp fees, please feel free to contact me to see if we can help send your child to camp.

Bulletin I 11th November 2018

PREACHER'S PEN

After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away his body. Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus[a] by night, came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds in weight. So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. So because of the Jewish day of Preparation, since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there. - John 19:38-42

WELCOME TO THE HARTWICH FAMILY

I had the privilege (as did Leah) of growing up in a Christian family. One aspect that really impacted my Christian journey was learning about creation science in later high school. I was hooked, so hooked I decided to study evolutionary biology at uni. After that I decided it was off to Bible college, including a desire to avoid girls and ignore ‘that topic’.

Leah and I met during our time while studying at ACM, also known as Adelaide College of Marriages. We exchanged rings in December 2012 in a beautiful garden (like the very first marriage, how Christian of us?!). The week of the wedding we both managed to secure jobs in New Zealand, so four weeks later we were on the plane.

Our time in NZ has many treasured memories. I worked on an evangelistic video Bible series while Leah was the youth director at our church. Amongst other deep spiritual insights we confirmed that rugby really was an inferior code to Aussie Rules and that due to geotechnical issues NZ sometimes didn’t smell that good, but the place itself is pretty much pristine and in places gorgeously untouched.

In our fourth year our little treasure, Daniel was born in November 2016. Being of high Christian integrity I had hoped our firstborn son would be born in the town of Bethlehem, but we fell one suburb short, and Daniel was born in Tauranga. He is simply a delight and joy. Four weeks (sound familiar?) after his birth we ventured back to our native land.

We now find ourselves a part of the Craigmore family. I have a role in the school to further develop those in Christian schooling in theology, apologetics and a Christian outlook on everything in life. Leah is full time + a half looking after Daniel and preparing for our second child, due in January.

- Sam Hartwich
