I have come that you may have LIFE …

On Sunday, BBC jumped on busses (provided by Mackay PCYC) and emptied out at the whalebones at Forgan Bridge.  The leaders believed that Jesus had challenged us to put our own preferences and desires for Sunday Worship aside and to go to where the hurting people are.

Sunday 10 September was the Survivors of Suicide – suicide prevention walk. The event raises awareness and allows people to identify with the many Mackay residents who have been effected by suicide.

30 or so BBC’ers, met, walked, talked with  and prayed for the 200 or so people who participated in the walk.

Isaiah 1:17 tells us to “Learn to do good;  seek justice, reprove the ruthless, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.

The lord has opened opportunities for us to connect with some of the most hurting in our city.  Where will it lead ? we don’t know, but what we do know is this… to obey is better than sacrifice.  Thanks for stepping out with us. Please pray for the Lord to continue to use us in the lives of these people and our community.
