Letter's from Phil Edwards and Ian Worby
CEO and Regional Director

Does this sum up what is happening in Australia right now?

Dear friends,

We live in interesting times.

Perhaps you have some of the same feelings as I do—frustration with political correctness, sadness at all the division and name-calling, anger at the broken state of our media.

It would be easy to feel powerless in the midst of it all.

It is most certainly a spiritual battle, but we can approach it with confidence!

Jesus told us:

‘Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.’ (John 16:32 NLT)

The Apostle John explained further when he said:

‘the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.’ (1 John 4:4 NLT)

We are in the midst of a tsunami of social, political and economic upheaval.

‘I just couldn’t imagine not having Vision and I see that God is using you more and more to reach people in these very turbulent times,’ says Jan from Hamilton.

People are looking for answers, they’re looking for what to do next—how to feel and act about things. More people are talking about more emptiness than ever before.

…we don’t need a Sexual Revolution—we need a God Revolution!

Both experience and Scripture tell us that we have the answer. It’s not in changing laws but in changing hearts—in other words, we don’t need a Sexual Revolution—we need a God Revolution! Having the solid rock of Jesus Christ drives us in our mission to reach every Australian with the true hope that comes from knowing God, and gives us the strength to stand firm in the face of strong headwinds.
