News from Australia
Whilst on holiday visiting relatives and friends in New Zealand and Australia, we had the pleasure of staying with Kevin and Anne Stone, in Canberra, for three days. It was great to build on the friendship that was made during their time in Marden and to exchange news. Kevin and Anne send their fond wishes to everyone in Marden.
Brian and Ann
From Marden's Only Aussie Vicar
It's been a real pleasure to have Ann and Brian Woodgate stay with us during their overseas trip. We had also had them stay with us in Crookwell some time ago. This time we were able to show off more of Canberra such as our last Parish before retiring - St Luke's Deakin; also the High Court of Australia; the National War Memorial and Museum, the National Arboretum; as well as visiting and worshiping with us at St John's Canberra which existed well before the National Capital was proclaimed.
And of course we caught up with all the news of Marden and to find out how you are all growing in the Lord.
Since Ann and Brian were with us we have been north to Boggabri to witness the Induction of our youngest son, Nicholas as Vicar of St Barnabas' Boggabri. What a grand occasion it was. With his wife Caroline and three little children it will be a busy time as Nick also has responsibility for promoting the work of the Church Missionary Society in northern NSW.
With our love,
Kevin and Anne
