A: AFES South Pacific Regional Training Event ("SPRTE").
No, I'm not exaggerating. I really think that SPRTE will make a big impact for Christ - probably the biggest impact of any event in the country this year. That's because we'll have a bunch of keen, young, ministry-minded people, from all over Australia, and Fiji, PNG, New Zealand and Vanuatu, studying the Bible together. I expect it to be a life-changing week for many of them. I expect them to Biblical, theological and ministry foundations in place that will serve them for the rest of their life. And because they're bright young leaders, I expect them to influence many, many people in the future. Many of them will go on to be ministers or elders or other significant church leaders. Others will hold influential positions in business, government, education, and community organisations. And because they come from all over the south pacific, this will impact the whole region. The friendships that come out of this conference could lead to a new wave of co-operation and ministry sharing all across the region.
So, please pray for SPRTE. It's the biggest event for Christ this year. Let's make the most of it.
