Mandurah Youth

a Biblical thought...
Anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (Matthew 10:38-39)

a Book thought...
You have been gifted for greatness - in service, not status. (p50)
a Dave thought...
Last night Kylie, Nikki (DYS) & myself went down to Mandurah to visit the corps ably run by Captain Michael & Erica Cossington. Thursday night youth group was on with over twenty present including many local Sudanese teens. This week was a little different as John Marion, and his six interns from Perth ran the night. The theme of messy games was in full force as everyone ended the night with anything from shaving cream, chocolate, and water covering them. Afterwards all the leaders went back to Elaine, the local youth workers house for a debrief and food. Youth Group is still a successful program all over the territory and the way it gathers so many young people on a regular basis is encouraging. The idea of a low cost, fun time which not only develops community but where gospel ideas are shared has been around for over forty years & if the fruit is still there why not continue it for another forty.

Just a thought.
