On Sunday we heard from Wade & Rachel about their upcoming plans for next year and reminisced about their time with us.
We will definitely miss them but are so excited about their future plans especially with Wade developing resources for children’s ministry. Next year, the Iedema family will be moving to Sydney for two years where Wade will work for Quizworx for 3 days a week and will also be doing some part-time ministry in children’s ministry.
Quizworx is a team of Christians who present the gospel of Jesus to kids in fund and innovative ways. They began in 1998 as a part time ministry, and have been full-time since 2003. Currently they have three full time employees and two working part time. In 2008, they performed 400 shows to approximately 40 000 kids and much of their work is in schools bringing the gospel to children who don’t have opportunities to hear about Jesus. You can check out their website www.quizworx.com.au.
At this stage Wade is committing to one year with Quizworx, with the possibility of a second. Quizworx relies on the generous support of many people – if you would like to partner with Wade and Rachel, Halen & Ben in their new ministry role then please contact the office for further details.
Wade and Rachel have been a big part of our church family and I personally am going to miss them all (especially Wade in the office).
If you have been encouraged by their ministry and would like to leave them a message then please write a comment below…
Goodbye dear friends
We love you. We’ll miss you. But give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord and the cost will not be in vain.
I’ll really miss you iedemas! Love you all very much, and it’s hard to watch you go. Thanks so much for spurring me and many people on for five years. We’ll all be at loss without you.
…but we’ll look forward to some hit songs from Lifetone in the not-too-distant future! – starring who else but (Van) Halen on the drums…
Goodbye iedemas!!! We’ll miss you all (especially Ben in creche!!) I hope you will all enjoy living in sydney!!!

Thankyou espcailly Rachel for your fantastic friendship and your humility and your geniuine desire to know God better.
