Trains or ... Planes
Graham McDonald says they're thankful for Divine protection at Wyandra, in the far west of Queensland, on their recent patrol. They were nearly hit by a goods train at the railway crossing! The driver got out of the ute' shaking and said: "We don't normally have trains running on Wednesdays!"
Their Patrol plane took them to Merriwagga, Ivanhoe, Eulo, Brewarrina and Mungindi where 240 children and 18 teachers took part in the Scripture classes. At Hay; Cobar, Cunnamulla, St. George and Narrabri they trained 26 of the Lord's special people plus 16 at Cornerstone College in Children's evangelism.
It was at Louth they discovered a school of only boys, then Wyandra, only girls. Why is it so?
Graham, who works with Children for the World, a part of Campus Crusade, has led teams on a dozen patrols outback since the 1980's and returns again in 2003 and 2004 with new teams to train, and new people to contact. And the'll be on the lookout for trains on Wednesday, too....
Pray for them.
"Large asking and expectation on our part honours God."
