You know you’re in a multicultural area when within 24 hours you meet an Indonesian couple, an Afghani refugee, a Chilean man, an Italian man, a Samoan woman, and a Greek Orthodox man.

You know you’re in a multicultural area when you go to the shops and they don’t know what Easter Eggs are.

You know you’re in a multicultural area when you chat to a Chilean man in Spanish for half an hour.

Dave O’Mara (Senior Minister) talked to us this morning about cross-cultural ministry in Sydney and reminded us that the demographic of Sydney is changing and if we want to be able to minister effectively in Sydney then we need to be flexible in our approach. He reminded us that we need to be people who are part of the church community and who avoid spending all our time in an office placing ourselves above others. We were also exhorted to not be individualistic in ministry and seeking our best. Pray that we would be people who work in partnership with the church and who are willing to give up our ambitions and goals for those of God.

Andrew’s car broke yesterday and when the NRMA man came they got chatting and Andrew invited him to the Community Dinner tomorrow night. Please pray that he will come.

Today Emma and Kate lead the Women’s Bible Study in a study about sharing your faith. Emma said ‘it was great that they were all so willing to get into it and practice giving their testimonies’. Praise God!
