Fun Run

We are half way through our 3 week visit in Australia.  Cynthia has been enjoying being able to use the internet.  She has been researching products for her sewing project.  She also had a great talk with a group of ladies who were very supportive of what she is doing.  Samuel has been working hard on a building site in Lismore. 

We have just visited Tweed Heads Salvation Army who are sending a team over with us for 2 weeks.  Its amazing to see a whole church get excited about helping people in East Timor.  On Sunday afternoon they arranged a fun run as a fundraiser for the team’s project and also to raise awareness of the work in East Timor.

Every sponsored entrant had to carry 2 litres of water! to experience a little of what it is like for the poorer members of our world. 
Some youth supporting the cause!
Cynthia  and Leanne, getting to know each other.  Leanne is one of the women coming over with the team.

Sylvia - the other intrepid woman brave enough to visit East Timor!
We look forward to getting back to our home church in Grafton next week before heading back to East Timor with the team.   We plan to take them to Los Palos to put a roof on the Training Centre.
