    Today we will be doing some work at the church like painting and some other much needed maintenance and cleaning.

    Today is the amazing race in Gorre – with a purpose! Find your way through the city, completing tasks like praying for people, sharing the gospel and finding out about the local culture. Oh, and you’re on dinner duty tonight so you’ll also have to do the shopping!

  • Sat 30 Nov Cultural Night

    This evening you’ll be the hosts at an Culture Exchange Night. The guests will be the teenagers (and their parents) that you’ve met during the week. So be prepared to share about life in Australia – maybe via a kahoot quiz, sharing a song or some other creative way to introduce them to Aussie culture. During the evening you will also have a chance to share your testimony and a short gospel presentation.
