After much painting, organising, blood, sweat and at times nearly tears we launched Naenae for Christ Community Church. It was a wonderful morning, with many friends supporting us from both Heretaunga and Riverbend Bible Church. It was also made more wonderful by Joel being baptized. We were able to achieve a lot in the 5 weeks that we had the keys prior to opening. Windows were replaced, new carpet, paint throughout, sound put in and the list goes on and on. We could not have done it without an amazing team of committed people and several working bees. A big thank you to everyone who helped in any way. Thank you also to all those, especially in the States, who have supported us over the last two years to enable us to do this. We praise God for you and for your willingness to support a ministry on the other side of the world.
Following are photos of our first morning.
