In Australia

Dear friends,

We deeply appreciate your prayers and support in so many ways.

The last 3 weeks have gone very quickly. It has been very refreshing spending time in Australia. We have travelled a lot to see family. We were very glad to have made the trip out to Condobolin to see Daniel’s Nan who was very sick. We spent time with Nan (90) and Pop (92!). We had a good chat with Pop while there and have heard this morning that he died in his sleep last night. We travel out to Condo tomorrow (Tuesday) for his funeral.

Daniel's mother's father (Pop)We would really appreciate prayer for the family, especially Daniel’s mother (Pop was her father), and for his wife ‘Nan’ who is still very unwell in hospital.

We are very thankful to be in our own house for the 5 months we are in Australia… and so thankful to many family and friends who have given so much of their time and resources to help us settle in.

During our 5 months at home, we will have a chance to report back to those who support us and those who are interested. We expect to be travelling most weekends. This break will also give us time to rest and unwind, debrief, catch up with family and friends, catch up with medical needs, give the children an experience of real school, and refresh our own medical and pharmacy skills.

We pray you have a happy and safe Christmas, resting in the peace which only Emmanuel can bring.

‘Be not afraid. I go before you always. Come follow me… and I will give you rest.’ (Hymn)

Daniel, Tammy, Tom, Rosie and Sam
