JESUS. All About Life.

This campaign started in Tasmania yesterday. It is a series of adds on the television, on the radio and on billboards etc. There are three adds on the television, one aimed at youth, one aimed at parents and one aimed at baby boomers. Basically they are to get people thinking about Jesus and ringing the number or visiting the website for more info and to get a booklet, which is one of the gospels, as well as helping churches to connect with people who do not attend regularly.

This is the first time that it has been done on a state wide scale, in the past it has been done in Canberra and Adelaide, it was originally going to be just Hobart or something, but due to the lack of people in tassie they decided to do it for the whole state. I believe that sometime next year it will be run in WA but i am not sure if that is the whole state or just Perth.

Pray for this campaign, that it will get people interested and attending local churches, that churches will get behind the campaign, pray for the call centre, that the staff working there will have good relationships, and be friendly etc, especially pray for that because the call centre is at the college.

There's a bear in there

We recently took the kids to see the Play School concert. It was so much fun, for us adults as well as for the kids. They have it balanced so well plenty of funny stuff that the kids will get and also a sprinkling of stuff for the adults as well. The children were talking about it for days afterwards it is an experience to remember. The one thing that is amazing is that Benita is still doing the concerts, I remember watching her as a little kid on the tv. She still does it so well, she should still be on the tv. Teo was also good but he didn't hold the same memories that Benita did for me. It was a fantastic time.


Well it was a very sad time recently, not only did my grandfather died, but some very good friends of mine who were students here at the college, returned to England because the husband was unwell and was not improving. I will miss them so much, they were such good friends to me, so generous and welcoming. I will also miss there two little girls who were such a pleasure to have in the play centre, so happy and fun to be with.
Goodbye, God bless you.
