Throughout the Bible is a wonderful theme: freedom. From God rescuing His people from slavery all the way through to Jesus declaring that He has come to set captives free, we see that God is interested in bringing us freedom. The first chapter of Matthew outlines the lineage of Christ and reminds us that God chose to redeem fallen people through injecting the bloodline of Jesus. God is in the business of using His Son to transform lives and communities in order to bring freedom through His love and grace! 


Because of Jesus I am filled with hope for our world and pray that God will use all of us to bring justice and freedom. One of the biggest injustices in our world today is seen in India. The caste system is still imbedded within Indian society and people are oppressed through a religious system that teaches that god Brahma created people in their castes according to his people within the lowest caste (the untouchables or Dalits) is 300 million.

This is one of the leading forms of slavery in our world today as the untouchables are made to live outside the city centres in surrounding villages and participate in degrading work such as dealing with dead bodies and the removal of human waste. Ironically, although being called “untouchable” they are also the most commonly trafficked people into the sex industry in India due to their vulnerability.

Happy New Year! I hope you have had a great start to the year! 

One of our family traditions which signifies the start of a new year is an annual pilgrimage to the Australian Open tennis tournament. The world’s best tennis players on our shores to battle it out for one of the Grand Slams! 

2014 feb 1A few years ago after a long hot day at the tennis, we were on our way to catch a train home when my lovely mother-in-law (who happens to be sport mad), spotted Peter McNamara standing near an outside court in mid conversation with someone. Excitedly, she opened her Australian Open magazine, found a photo of a young Peter McNamara and asked us, “Do you think he would sign this for me?”  We said that we were sure he would if she asked him.

freedom-climb-2013On Saturday November 16th 2013, 43 climbers and 5 Marshalls met at the base of Huon Hill, Wodonga to hold the Inaugural Australian Freedom Climb.

As a result, over $6,500 was raised to equip training centres in India for women to learn tailoring skills so that they can have income and a future and greater prospects for the next generation. You're invited to join the Freedom Climb facebook page and share with others so that more people will learn about these issues, where next year's climbs will be and how you can make a difference.

This year 2014 we are planning a number of climbs around Australia and a 'signature' international Freedom Climb in South Africa in October. For information about any of these climbs of how you can learn more about Freedom Climb, please go to the Freedom Climb website or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
