At church on Sunday night we heard from Ian Coutts about how significant it was for him to be ‘adopted’ by a family from church when he arrived in Lismore to study at SCU some years back. It was a big part of getting connected with our wider church family and being encouraged in following Jesus.
Perhaps it was also Ian’s mention of three-course meals but the interview had the effect of prompting 8 more students to ‘sign-up’ to be adopted. That’s great, because there are many families in the church ready and waiting to adopt! If there are any more students interested in being adopted (or families in adopting), do let us know soon because we’ll shortly be finishing all the matching up so the meals can begin and the and friendships grow, as we grab this opportunity to spur one another on in Christ.
