Dear Friends,

We want to give a grateful thanks to each of A.C.T.S. Volunteer Evangelists and Partners across Australia for their commitment to working with us for a Christlike Australia.

The Bible explains our interdependence in Christ:

“…for we are fellow workers, you are God’s field, God’s building (I Cor 3:9)

“Christ is our Foundation” (Isaiah 28:14-22; 1 Peter 2:4-12)

“By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise master builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one must be careful how he builds. For no one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid which is Jesus Christ” (I Corinthians 10-12)

Please praise Him and pray for the 6 spotlighted below:

Merv & Joie Westbrook’s Darwin Outreach Centre’s 24 hour, 7 days a week hostel ministry to Aboriginal Australia’s sick from Northern Territory, helping with housing, feeding, transporting to hospitals, dialysis units, and back home by car, bus, train and plane. Carol & Fred were flown into the Outback by Merv in August 1991 and have recently been able to stay at the hostel, share Jesus, hand out Bibles, “Life of Jesus comic and coloring books and Christian DVD’s.
