Thanks again to everyone who came to our thank you party tonight. It was just lovely to see everyone there. Special thanks to all those who helped on the night especially for all the contributions of food. Also a special footnote....Sue was meant to pass on greetings from Benson tonight and it slipped her mind. Benson was praying for a successful evening for us. I think his prayers were answered yet again!

Yesterday was an exciting day as we got the official notification that Fiwagoh Mission Orphanage is now a registered charity in Queensland. This means that we have been able to open a bank account and can issue receipts and make payments to Fiwagoh, all of which will be audited annually. We plan to support the orphanage by making financial contributions to help with important projects. The first priority is to help them establish a watering system for their garden. By getting water from their bore onto the garden they will be well on their way to being self sufficient with regards to food. This is so exciting as it will alleviate some of the pressure on their budget allowing for money to be spent on other things.
