We had a wonderful eight days with visiting friends, Pastor Tony and Eunice Hallo from Townsville, QU, Australia. We were so pleased when they accepted to come as our Spiritual Emphasis speakers this year. Cyclone Sandra was heading our way and scheduled to hit our island the day before the special meetings were to begin. Thank you to many of you who prayed that we would be spared the storm. The cyclone did turn from its easterly path and headed south away from us and other nearby islands. The Hallos were able to fly in on time and begin a special week of ministry!
Pastor Tony spoke to the students in the morning chapel times and then in public meetings held in the school chapel each night. The crowd grew with each day and people were sitting in chairs outside the door and standing at the open windows. Our hearts were challenged afresh to draw nearer to God. It was a wonderful way to begin a new school year at JBI!
On Sunday, the Hallos were invited to speak in two different city churches before flying home the next day. We are looking forward to their next ministry visit!
