We attend a great international church about 1/2 hour drive away from Kangaroo Ground. It's in a little suburb called Watsonia. Here are some pictures from various things we've been involved in there. Pastor and his wife are great at making everyone feel welcome and loved. We've been invited as a big group over to their place for lunch every so often after church and are impressed with her ability to cook for a huge crowd. They are church planters from the States and have two children of high school and college age.

The church meets in an elementary school so there is quite a bit of set-up and tear-down each week but it is a good size space for the group and is a fairly established church plant. Just this month an Arabic service was started for the large Lebonese population in the church. There are quite a few Philippino attendees and others from other countries so we enjoy the diversity there.

In an earlier post I mentioned the VBS-ish day we were involved in. Every so often we sing or play as a small group or in a choir. We've been practicing for Christmas for some choir pieces and also some songs using chimes, a first for me. We help with nursery and children's church from time-to-time.

In a week or so I'll post pictures from the missions conference. Videos will soon be coming your way that we showed for the missions conference and that show some updates from this last year that we've been away. The missions conference ended with an international dinner. Who can say no to trying all kinds of new foods!
