Sunday 28th August 2011

Monday 29 August, 2011

Sunday 28th August was a special day for us here in Cairns!

 

We were able to celebrate Lord's Supper and once again remember Christ's redeeming work on the cross...what a blessing! 

Also we were also able to celebrate Rev & Mrs Huizinga's 40th Wedding anniversary!  While for them it would have been a different anniversary having none of their own children/family around...for us it was special to be able to help them celebrate.  It was also their last Sunday with us....after 3 months it is time for them to return home to Western Australia. 

We have felt very blessed to have Rev Huizinga's guidance and leadership for 3 months and we thank God for allowing such an opportunity.  Rev Huizinga will probably need to have a good rest once he is home again because we took full advantage of  his wisdom and knowledge while he was here!  I think, though, that we may see him back again one day...so it is not 'goodbye' for us...it is 'see you soon'!  Thank-you Rev & Mrs Huizinga for the all the work you have done here, we pray you have a safe  trip home and look forward to seeing you back in Cairns one day.

Here are some photo's from Sunday:

 

The delicious.....huge.....anniversary cake one of our members organised!

Lunch time.

 

We have been having beautiful weather here in Cairns which has been bringing a steady flow of visitors which we have been thoroughly enjoying. 

However, we have also been having a few 'bugs' floating around and causing illnesses.  We pray everyone may regain their health over the next few weeks so we may, once again, have a 'healthy' group!

There have been no new members lately but we have had a few new people join us on a regular basis and we pray the Holy Spirit will continue to work in their hearts that they may join us in a more 'permanent' way in due time.

Regards
