DAY THREE // To All Generations
Our third day of mission* gave us opportunities to speak to those from all generations. Here are some highlights:
We were delighted to be at both Caringbah and Cronulla playgroups. We brought our own donkey along to Caringbah (pictured) and were extremely encouraged by the large presence of new people at the Cronulla playgroup.
The Moore team was able to be at Cronulla and Kurnell schools teaching SRE. It was so encouraging to see that the whole of Cronulla public were present at the assembly run by our team which spoke loudly of the gospel.
In the evening, there was also an SRE supporters night. It was attended by about 50 people, all gathered to help raise finances for a local missionary working in public schools in the Shire East region. Please keep Jesse in your prayers as he hopes to raise $2200 per month to live off as he does this work.
Zack was one of our team members who went along to the night. Here’s what he looks like:
And here’s some more info about him:
What I love about college: That I get time set aside to grow in God’s word to be able to prepare for full time ministry after graduating college.
We were also able to join in fellowship at a Book of Common Prayer service with lunch that ran at Cronulla, as well as a chapel service at Goodhew Gardens Retirement Home. At Goodhew, we were particularly encouraged by the intentionality of the residents in sharing the gospel with those in care who don’t know Jesus. One woman, living in independent living, shared that she had entered Goodhew with a mission focus. She spoke of the opportunity that she had had of leading another resident with severe dementia to Christ. Those working at Goodhew were eager to pray for us, not only during the service, but continually as we train for various ministries.
* While Wednesday was technically our third day of mission, some of us actually started mission a day early. We attended an art show put on by St Andrew’s Cronulla. While it was run by the church, it encouraged local artists to showcase their work. Here are some bonus photos from that day:
