Vietnam: Merry Christmas













Merry Christmas
How we saw 2017
VIETNAM
Combating sexual abuse is something we are passionate about. This year we were able to partner with our local Women's Union to begin training in Sexual Abuse Awareness with children as well as parents in several communities. We know this training will give children tools in their hands to help them avoid being taken advantaged of. 
Prevention of trafficking is also something we are addressing. Again this year, we ran a Life Skills camp with a local high school. These students experience 5 sessions throughout the day. Education on the ploy of traffickers, understanding of their own personal self worth, a lesson in the English language, practical health practices and road safety. Our desire is to see these youth thrive in all areas of their life.
Outreach - Merry Christmas Da Nang
What an incredible opportunity we have as an International Fellowship. Each year we get to present the Christmas message to the city of Da Nang. This our 6th year, saw over 1000 people came along from all walks of life. We are grateful for the favour we have to do this so other's will know the 'Reason for the Season.' 
SRI LANKA
WOMEN'S CONFERNCE

1000 women leaning in.

Again this year we had the opportunity to join hands with Sri Lanka. Deb was asked to speak at Alison Atkinson's Alokaya Women's Conference where around 1000 women came and leaned in to hear from God. What a privilege it was for Deb to be asked to speak at this Conference where women received a powerful touch from our Father.

AUSTRALIA
ACC STATE CONFERENCES

Representing our ACCI mission

Again this year, we were blessed to champion missions at several ACC State Conferences by engaging with many who came to our Australian Christian Churches International (ACCI) promotion stand. Missions is something we are passionate about and we love to encourage others to get on board with what is happening around the world or step into their own call for overseas mission. 

CALVARY MISSIONS CONFERENCE
HAWAII
We were blessed to be asked to speak at Calvary AOG Missions Conference this year. Pastors Terry and Vicky Wong and their church are passionate about seeing the lost saved around the world. We love their hearts for mission and our long term partnership.
MERRY CHRISTMAS
FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS
Have a blessed and safe Christmas and may 2018 be your best year yet. 
Love Paul, Deb and family
