Mt. Gambier, SA

God has given us a fantastic weekend in Mount Gambier, South Australia. It is the occasion of their 125th anniversary and they are on their way to scale new heights in the next 125 years. Majors Chris and Steve Black with their effective team of local officers prepared celebration after celebration to the glory of God. He has been at work in and through this corps for 125 years. Hallelujah!

From the moment we arrived to our departure this afternoon we observed the movement of the Spirit of God. He led us in worship, caring and consecration. This is a great corps following our Lord with complete hopefulness. Bless the Lord.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

When I was in College I campaigned and then out-trained at Mt Gambier and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Wonderful, godly people.

WOW! What a weekend Commissioners Jim & Carolyn Knaggs were awesome as they blended with our Corps folks & shared their expression of Jesus with our congregation. It is certainly a privilege for us being given the opportunity to be the spiritual leaders of this Corps & Community where we pray the footprints of Christ will be embedded in the hearts & lives of those who live in the Limestone Coast.
