    Learn, Pray, Act Welcome to In Partnership. In this edition John Gilmore (GMP Executive Director) offers an insight into how we participate in global mission. "If we were making a film about some basic aspects of Christian mission what would the title be? A film focused on a woman’s search for meaning had a three word title ‘Eat, Pray, Love’.

The Gandep Project will provide improved access via air and road to support emergency medical, educational and trade outcomes.

    8 October, 2015

    This is the sixth year a team from Armidale, NSW has visited Pentecost Island in Vanuatu. The most recent team was led by Warren and Linda Agnew from Fresh Hope Armidale Church of Christ. A team of fourteen also included three young people and two staff members from Pathfinders, a not-for-profit organisation that operates a number of programs and services promoting youth and family welfare. The partnership was very rewarding for all involved. The team undertook a range of activities including re-building the workshop at Ranwadi College, leading devotions and craft activities at the College, assisting in classes at both Ranmawat Primary School and Melsisi Secondary School as well as conducting wound clinics and providing supplies and training for a new first-aid post at Waterfall Village. The diversity of projects enabled the team to interact with a wide range of community members and serve in many different areas! Linda Agnew, Fresh Hope, Armidale, NSW LEFT: Re-building… Read More
