Dear family and friends,

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1-2 ESV

In the last two weeks I taught through the first two verses of Romans 12 and continued to move through Romans with comprehension checking. There is a lot in those first two verses in Romans 12 so I have taking it slowly giving some practical teaching in what it means to give ourselves as sacrifices to God. Do our lives belong to us to do as we wish or to God to do as He wishes? Only then can God begin changing us through the renewing of our minds. The phone tower at Kafonaga has been out the last two times I was up there so I have had to drive back along the road to ring Wendy.

We have been making our plans for when we leave here in July. We plan to stay in Cairns for two weeks to walk the beaches😊. We will then head down to Townsville and overnight there. Then on down to Mackay for a couple of nights, then arriving at Bundaberg. We will be in Maryborough over a weekend where we have been invited to speak in the Maryborough Gospel Chapel Sunday morning. We will visit some of Wendy’s family on the way to Brisbane arriving there around the end of the month.

We will speak at the Mission Interest Evening held at the Peninsula Palms Retirement Village in Redcliffe. We will spend a couple of weeks in Brisbane visiting our friends and family there then  begin heading home via Toowoomba, Biloela and Emerald. We have been invited to speak in the Eiser St Baptist church in Toowoomba. We should arrive home mid-late August😊. We will spend the night in Emerald then head home, 80km west of Emerald.

Pray for us as we prepare the believers for our leaving. Pray too that the Lord will raise up people of His choice to continue the work here.

With Christian love from

David and Wendy
