Mothers’ Union September Meeting

mothersunionlogoTuesday 27th September 7.45/8.00pm

Speaker: Rev Duku Wolikare

Duku is a refugee from Sth Sudan who lives and ministers in the Hoppers Crossing area. Duku was ordained deacon earlier this year.

He says – “God spared my life, one evil after another, in the midst of deep poverty, refugee and orphanage life. I cannot explain why I am not among the 2 million, or 1 of my 7 siblings who lost their lives as a result of war. Only God knows why I am alive today and why of all refugees I am one of the few who was allowed to come to Australia. I am compelled to believe God wants me to serve Him. He has miraculously turned a great evil for good. He has turned my hopeless situation into a hopeful one.”

A lovely man with an inspiring story to share. Why not come along and enjoy the fellowship – you’ll be made most welcome. Info 9578 1154.
