As you would be aware, the farming community in many areas across our nation is currently facing extreme hardship due to an intense and worsening drought. As a result, many farmers have been forced to sell off stock, many have lost livestock due to poor health and in addition, mental health issues among farmers has increased by 70%.
Last Sunday we prayed for and gave for our farmers. If you didnt get the chance to give and would like to you can find details below. Funds donated will be forwarded from C3 Australia on to C3 Churches in affected areas, in order to assist those that are most most in need. The financial support we provide will go towards IGA cards for food, petrol cards, hampers, and salt blocks to provide minerals and nutrients for cattle.
‘Don’t be afraid, you animals of the field, for the wilderness pastures will soon be green. The trees will again be filled with fruit; fig trees and grapevines will be loaded down once more. Rejoice, you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice in the Lord your God! For the rain he sends demonstrates his faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as the rains of spring. The threshing floors will again be piled high with grain, and the presses will overflow with new wine and olive oil.’ – Joel 2:22-24 NLT
