SU Australia Beach Missions are not just events that happen over the school holidays. Each mission is a living community that shines God’s love to people from all backgrounds as they discover life and purpose in his big story.
For Marie* and her daughter, SU’s Stanley Beach Mission in north-western Tasmania has had a life-transforming impact – and your support makes this possible.
Before her first visit to Stanley Beach Mission a few years ago, Marie had been banned from a number of local shops and the caravan park due to her ice addiction and difficulty in controlling her emotions.
Working with the caravan park to get their permission, and following Jesus’ own example, the team welcomed Marie and her daughter.
They became regulars throughout the week, chatting with the team and joining the activities, Stanley Beach MIssion Director, Krissy says.
“We had a supporter donate a Bible with a special request attached – that it goes to ‘someone special’. When our team gathered for our final devotion of the week, we unanimously voted that it would go to Marie,” Krissy recalls.
This was two years ago… Today, Marie has turned her life around, and both she and her daughter continue to attend Stanley Beach Mission every year. Not only that, but Marie is now also in a healthy relationship and has just given birth to a baby boy.
We’re looking forward to catching Marie and her beautiful family at next year’s Stanley Beach Mission.
