Nick-Vinitha-AndrewWe are delighted and praising God to let you know that all three Aussie OMers involved in the accident in Botswana on 6 August have returned home safely and are now continuing their process of healing and recovery at home; Andrew in WA and Nick and Vinitha in Victoria. There have been miracles along the way…no doubt about it! But the journey continues towards full healing and recovery! The three South Africans also injured in the accident, Heinrich, Gerhard and Sibusiso also continue to recover well. A memorial service for Donovan, the South African also involved in the accident was held on 16 August.

We invite you to continue to pray for all involved. We already have seen God answer the many prayers of His people.

Again, we invite you to give to the Recovery Fund, especially set up to help OM and the families cover the costs resulting from the accident. Any gifts received for the Recovery Fund that are not needed by the families of Andrew, Nick and Vinitha will be offered to offset expenses of the others in the accident and/or to a ministry that was on Donovan’s heart in his memory.

We look forward to reporting back to you on how your donation has been able to help.

Thank you for your prayers and your partnership at this difficult time.

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.
