St Peters, Gerogery

Our St Peters, Gerogery Fellowship continued to meet spasmodically last year, despite restrictions. Our numbers remain at ten even though our congregation numbers are not much more.

Pastor Christian Fandrich leads our Bible studies which are taken from Lutheran Women. Pastor makes our studies so interesting, and he encourages discussion.

Our President and Secretary/Treasurer have served in their positions for many years. President, Ros Wilksch, has clocked up thirty-five years while Ann Salzke has passed forty-five years as Treasurer, and twenty-five years as Secretary after taking over from her mother-in-law. Well done ladies. Thank you and may God bless you.

These ladies have had significant milestone birthdays recently, with Ros turning eighty and Ann seventy. Ann, together with husband Noel, also celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

Meanwhile I (Lorna) have been card steward for some thirty-five years, inheriting the position from my mother – keeping it in the family.

Last year we hosted the World Day of Prayer. It was the first time Gerogery fellowship had hosted this event. The morning focused on Vanuatu. Two of our members who have had long associations with Vanuatu gave an interesting account of the indigenous people’s lives and living conditions. Mostly they live in extremely poor circumstances.

It has been an extraordinary couple of years for us. Throughout it all, with reduced activities and fundraising, we have managed to stay together, staying connected and encouraging each other in Christ’s name.
