Tomorrow we launch the annual Red Shield Appeal with the hope that we will attract enough attention for the community to understand that "We're all in this together." I wish I could report that the needs of people have decreased and that TSA is needed less than ever before. It is true for many we have helped through the year. Their needs have decreased, but the reality remains that even more people have critical basic needs.
In the name of God we intend to press on to serve Him by serving people. Not unlike the love of God, we hope to help people unconditionally and uncompromisingly. We do so in His strength and by the resources He provides from the hearts of many people. We're trusting that Australians of all walks of life will join us in this cause. "We're all in this together," and together we will make a huge difference in the lives of Australians.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (MSG)
11 So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you'll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you're already doing this; just keep on doing it.
