At the recent Baptist Hui, we were thrilled to be able to commission back to South Asia, Joel and Lizzie and Charlie and Jo (in absentia). Both of these young couples have been in 

NZ in 2018 as they married, have undertaken study at Carey Baptist College (Joel and Lizzie), and are raising further support. Joel and Lizzie return to The Loyal Workshop in early December to continue their service amongst women at risk. Jo & Charlie are due to depart for Freeset in the first few months of 2019. We celebrate with them.

We also recommissioned to NZ Gary and Heather, Murray, and Colin and Tania with Georgia and Daniel (in absentia), as they completed their service at Dimensions and Freeset respectively.

We are so grateful to all of these folk for their dedicated commitment to the work and to the people in these places. We welcome them back to New Zealand and pray that they resettle to this context smoothly.
