Tena koutou Papanui Baptist Church!
It’s great to be here with you all again, and we’re so excited we get to
call you our whanau! Since our arrival we’ve hit the ground
running… After a glorious road trip down the country via Nelson Lakes we
joined Y@P for the Southern Easter Camp, and we were blown away by what we
saw – thousands of young people encountering God by his Spirit as they
heard the good news of salvation in Jesus! Couldn’t have asked for a
better start. Be sure to give Matt and the Y@P team a rap for all the hard
work they put into making it such a success. Since then we’ve moved into
the offices, and we’ve begun work on some things to come… Look out for
our first preaching series, Participate, starting April 17th. We’re also
working to start a new midweek email, so please make sure we have your
email address in our database! In the meantime, we’ll be settling into
life in Papanui. Do say hello! And we’ll do our best to learn names, but
our apologies in advance if we introduce ourselves to you more than once!
Looking forward to journeying together.
Kia mau te rāngimarie a te Karaiti ki o tātou ngākau.
The peace of Christ rule in our hearts,
Elliot & Sarah Rice
