We were very privileged to have Evert-Jan Ouwaneel join us on Sunday! Evert-Jan is a Dutch philosopher and speaker (with a background in Christian public engagement and faith & development) who works with World Vision, helping inform people in secular societies about the need for 'faith literacy' (understanding people of other faiths) and the importance of collaborating with religious leaders when building towards a more peaceful and prosperous world.
This week we welcomed Melinda Harvey to speak with us about Justice. Melinda is the Operations Manager for one of our Partners in Mission, International Justice Mission.
IJM exists to protect the poor from violence in the developing world, by partnering with local authorities to see captives set free, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems. Recently, IJM Australia has been focusing on the incredibly important work of combatting cyber-sex trafficking in the Philippines, and we stand with them with prayer and support.
