Firstly, I would like to thank all the participants who attended the National Conference in Tamworth. The highlights shared with me included the Friday night session where we heard testimonies of encouragement, the excitement of Face to Face and the Emmaus training that helps consolidate our understanding of this marvellous gift that we share across this great country.

As we have come to the end of the Christmas season and move into the new year, it is great to reflect on God's Son coming to earth as a baby and growing up experiencing the things we experience, like being with friends, helping those in need, dealing with unrest, having compassion but always knowing the will of the Father.
