Our new Team (L-R): Vanessa, Marina (Christian’s mother), Margarita and Christian.
We have been in conversation with the Barrionuevo family (see above) for many months. They are very excited about the work of LoveIsrael.org and have expressed their desire to participate with us. After discussion of many points and goals, they have officially been named our Australaisia Team. Australaisia is a region of Oceania, which is comprised of Australia, New Zealand, neighbouring islands in the Pacific Ocean.
In this volunteer role, they will coordinate Baruch’s speaking engagements and seek out ways of promotion of LoveIsrael.org through television, radio, collaboration and print media. They presented us with some great strategy ideas to broaden our reach in that area of the world.
The Barrionuevos coordinated every aspect of our trip to Sydney. They arranged meetings with various people, a one hour radio interview, the LoveIsrael.org conference in conjunction with Derek Prince Ministries and CVM Group, Baruch speaking at a congregation on Sunday Morning and a Pastors’ Conference/Luncheon. They also took us to the Wildlife park to see the koalas and wallabies. It was a very important (and enjoyable) trip, as we branch out into Australia.
We look forward to working with Christian, Margarita and Vanessa and feel very blessed by their desire to serve the L-rd with LoveIsrael.org.
Thursday night, August 23, we had the pleasure of attending a dinner where leaders from Derek Prince Ministries, Shalom Australia, and a local Congregation. This gave us a great opportunity to fellowship with some local leaders as well as hear about the spiritual condition and outreach work being done in Australia.
One of the comments we heard over and over on this trip is that Australia needs to hear proper Biblical teaching. There was excitement about Baruch’s teaching and expanding LoveIsrael.org in this region. We look forward to working with them in the future.
