Good News from Dareton

Wednesday, 4 November 2020

Ilker Deli from Dareton Youth and Community Centre, NSW, has some good news! The centre officially re-opened after the lockdown period and is now following COVID-safe practices. In other exciting news, GMP has secured the long-term use of the property for ministry and the community with the purchase now complete. Ilker says, “Kids can come here and be themselves and be safe.” Brendon Garlett, who is pioneering culturally relevant and relational outreach in Dareton, has been connecting with the community since 2017. For example, he helps young guys fix their bikes, builds relationships through golf, and recently started a youth church service at the Dareton Youth and Community Centre. Brendon reflects that it has taken some time to meet people and settle into the Dareton community, but God continues to encourage him to “be patient”. Brendon says, “It takes time to get into community – I’m just continuing to be there for people.” In more recent good news, Brendon and Amy have welcomed the birth of their sixth child, a healthy son – with all doing well. Congratulations!
