Brinkworth – Snowtown – Blyth Women’s Guild

It is unusual to be writing a report under the circumstances that Australia now finds itself in. Praise God we still have the freedom to be able to encourage each other by phone, internet, and prayer. Having lost our President, Esma Krieg, in May 2019, our numbers have reduced. But we gained four members from the Blyth congregation, when their Guild closed. Our attendance is now an average of four to eight per meeting. We …
