My recent trip to Australia was filled with rich and blessed times of reunion, reengagement and opportunities to meet with a number of supporters, as well as sharing about the work of Bright Solutions with new faces. If I met you, it was a real privilege to participate once again in warm fellowship and gracious hospitality. Spiritual fellowship and the encouragement of sharing with God’s family, is not taken lightly, especially when it is much less available where I serve.
Travelling to four states, sharing and participating in different events ranging from running mission workshops during CrossCulture’s Global Missions Convention, Life Groups, community gatherings to church services in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Toowoomba North and Bundaberg. Highlights included meeting with faithful supporters in Waikerie Church of Christ, Happy Valley Church of Christ, Empower Fairtrade Shop in Melbourne, amongst many others. Particularly encouraging to me were times to reconnect with those who have visited Bright Solutions in Vietnam, recalling people and encounters that impacted both visitors and team.
The team has been active in my absence, working consistently and capably; thank you for upholding them in prayer. Please continue to pray with me that during this coming month God will lead us in the decisions needed, particularly as new staff are acquired. Bright Solutions’ continuing purpose is to provide an environment where life-changing and enriching relationships nurture women towards dignity, acceptance and financial independence.
