HOPE PROJECT
Have you checked out the 10 Day
Challenge resources? I invite you to do
so, you will be impressed. Go to
www.10daychallenge.co.nz . Down the left
side of the screen you will see a series of
numbers (1-10). Click on those numbers to
look at the subjects covered in the 10 Day
Challenge. They include:
Christian Faith – a relationship with a God you cannot see
The Bible – learning about a God you cannot see
Church – Having friends on the same journey
Faith that triumphs life’s storms
Don’t forget the Q & A section which includes 20 short DVDs which
speak to many of the common questions non-Christians ask about
Christian faith.
Most of all don’t forget to talk to your neighbours, friends, workmates
and ask them what they thought about the material they’ve seen (the TV
ads, the booklet). Perhaps, because we’ve discovered that sections of
Waikanae don’t seem to have received a delivery, you could ask them if
they have a booklet and give them one if they don’t.
I have spoken to the Hope Project Team about this. Non-delivery in
some areas of a town or city seems to be an issue around the country
and they are encouraging churches to plug the gaps by delivering by
hand to areas that don’t seem to have been covered. To that end I have
ordered another 500 booklets for us to deliver in our street or area.
If you don’t think your street has received a delivery why don’t you grab
a handful of booklets from the foyer cupboard next Sunday and deliver
them to every household in the street – bar those that
have ‘no junk mail’ stickers?

MAINLY MUSIC
Mainly Music is a fun time with parents
( Mums Mainly) loving the interaction with
their kids through music. With themes such
as colours, movement and rhythm the
toddlers are adding to their learning
processes.
As relationships are being built between
parents-grandparents, some mums are now
asking for prayer from the leaders. And a couple have come along to
church.
One mum told us how that when she and another mum recently took
their almost 5 year olds to "Kickstart" program at Kapanui School their
girls started singing "Cause Jesus loves me" during mat time. They had
sung this at Mainly Music in the morning. We can but admire their faith.
Please pray for:
1. The ongoing deepening of relationships between parents, grand
parents and the MM team.
2. The God Spot to have a more obvious effect on all the parents.
3. The people coming to continue asking for prayer.
4. Good health and fitness for the MM team.
5. The upcoming special Christmas programme on Dec 8 and the
Zippity Zoo.
6. The parents now starting to come to church will deepen their
relationship with Christ
