WEST MORETON ZONE RALLY REPORT 2016

On the 19th April  Women from the West Moreton Zone received a warm welcome  from the Peace Woman’s Fellowship Gatton for Rally Day 2016. Attending were 44 people including Bishop Paul Smith, Marilyn Barber (LWA Ex) Karen Bryce, Heather Kleidon and Ros Vonhof (LWQ Ex). The theme was “ Love one another”

The host Pastor, James Haak ‘s devotion was from 1 John 4.  God is love. Love is the greatest thing. Because of God’s love  he sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Because God loves us we should also love one another.

The speaker was Karyn Rosenthal.  She spoke of the work that is being done at Mary & Marthas. The offering of $534 was given as a donation to this cause.
