On Monday, David Alsford received a PAPANUI-INNES COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD 2019. These Council Community Service Awards are a way to acknowledge people who make our local neighbourhoods a better place to live. This is well-deserved recognition for David who is dedicated and passionate in how he seeks to participate in Jesus’ redemptive work through serving in so many different places. Congratulations David!

This Sunday Elliot and I are at our annual year-group retreat with pastors who are peers from Carey. This is a time where we seek Jesus together, pray for and encourage one another. In our absence, Andrew Meek who is the Associate Pastor from Carey will be preaching.

Elliot and I announced on Sunday that we are 10 weeks pregnant and are rather excited! Baby is due around the 25th of January 2020.

Ngā mihi nui,
Sarah & Elliot
