What a great event this was as a dedicated team worked for a couple of months to prepare for this special day which included a morning service, a Missionsfest of 15 organizations displaying their work, and an evening service. Here is David at our Canberra Declaration stand. The children in the photo are collecting jigsaw pieces to make a puzzle as they discover new things at different stands. Most people joined in the spirit of the day by wearing international clothes.
The focus was on the missionaries of our church. We have 9 different singles or families serving in a variety of ways. The church spent 39% of the budget last year on missions.
