Northern Team Unite

The ‘Northern Team’ are rearing to go after a wonderful training day where evryone felt they had known each other for years! Team is Front: Mary Davies, Avila Allsop. Back: Graeme Mitchell, Keith & Lynnette Dobbie, Bruce & Catherine Mackereth. Absent: Peter Jamieson.

The first training gathering of the ‘Northern Team’ for the Golden-Oldies Mission was like a School Reunion! Avila, one of our Auckland team members billeted an out-of-town couple, Keith and Lynnette Dobbie, and along with Mary from down the road, they all had a wonderful dinner and evening together on the Friday night.

By the time Andrea and I arrived from Christchurch on the Saturday morning the ‘school reunion-like atmosphere’ was well under way…and it didn’t stop for the rest of the day.

The team quickly gelled and everyone sensed that God had definitely hand-picked each person to come on this mission. Such was the warmth and bonds of friendship that developed. The team are now even more inspired and excited about the forthcoming mission, believing their collective wisdom and experiences can contribute to mission projects in our Pacific neighbourhood.
