Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.
Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.
He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.
Our Lord died on Good Friday,
But the cross did not destroy
His resurrection on Easter morn
Now we know our earthly death,
Like His is just a rest.
We’ll be forever with Him In heaven,
where life is best.
So we live our lives for Jesus,
Think of Him in all we do.
Thank you Saviour;
Thank you, Lord.
Help us love like you!
Sylvia H, welcomed 13 members & 7 visitors, with a special welcome to our guest speak er, Rodney Reid. We received 1 apology.
The Devotional theme was ”HOPE”. Jesus Christ Hope for the World! As Christians we can look back on the past and know we are forgiven; we cope with the problems of the present because we have HOPE for the future.
The Governor of SA came to Australia as a refugee, with a strong Faith in God &
”Hope for a better future”. He and his wife arrived in Darwin with nothing but an in visible suitcase filled with dreams. A dream & hope to live in a peaceful, safe and free country and to live a meaningful & fulfilling life, this he has certainly achieved.
Rodney Reid (Mayor of the Wakefield Regional Council), offered to tell us of his stay in Government House over-night , as a guest of the Governor. Itwas in June 2019 the night of the Citizen Presentation Awards , where 250 guests were gathered for the event, between the hours of 6-30pm & 8-15pm
Rodney ‘s, invitation arrival time was 2pm, with his entry card he was able to drive into
the grounds to park his car. He was met by the Butler and shown to his room, the Corn wall Room named after the Duke in 1901. We viewed photos of the room and he also had a map of the upstairs layout, which was interesting. Dinner was in the Dining room, with the Governor Hieu Van Le & his wife Lan, also 5 other Mayors & partners as guests, (this was a Dinner Jacket & black Tie affair). Dinner was great. Coffee & Chocolates were served in the Drawing Room After a good night’s sleep, a hot Break fast was served with silver service. Mrs Le visited the guests & thanked them for corning to stay.
