Surprise!….but it’s not that bad really….

For all Steer Ministry Partners who have placed an Interest Free Loan with us to support Christian missions more effectively, we will be introducing changes as of 1st January 2018, as a result of new Australian federal government rules.

Watch out for an action pack explaining what’s involved and why we are making the changes.

We’re making it as straightforward as possible so that the impact on Ministry Partners is minimized.

Hang In There

Do you remember Hurricane Matthew which devastated Haiti in October 2016? Well, we have had many more disasters since with Hurricanes Irma and Maria in the Caribbean wreaking havoc in September 2017.

Natural disasters will always be with us and we are heartened to see the great work that many of the missions Steer supports such as Samaritan’s Purse, spring into action assisting disaster victims. Our Ministry Partners, like Samaritan’s Purse are dedicated to helping others in need. They were there helping those in Haiti in 2016 and again helping now in the Caribbean.

The hard effort, consistency and long term support of our Ministry Partners is unwavering and can only keep going with the encouragement of your support. Please keep the support going via direct charitable donations or through Steer and know that what you do uplifts the lives of others. To contact Steer go to

Death comes to all of us….

And before then, we have the chance to put our time to best use. In the last few weeks, I’ve had the privilege of conducting my father’s funeral in the United Kingdom. It’s an encouragement for me and everyone to make the most of the time we have available. It’s also a reminder of what’s really important. Sorry for the big gap, since last we put up a post, but now you know why?

So to help seniors to use their time wisely, Belgrave Heights are running their first ever Seniors Convention from Fri 17 to Sun 19 Nov 2018. It should be interesting, why don’t you check out their link


Generosity comes in all shapes and sizes. We can all get involve, just in different ways. Here’s one to inspire you.

“During the last month we have seen two major hurricanes hit the southwestern United States. In Houston, TX Jim McIngvale, well known in the area as “Mattress Mack,” owns several large furniture stores. When he saw that many were in need of a safe place to ride out the storm, he opened his stores to the public and allowed them to sleep on his inventory. “We’ve got lots of beds, we’ve got lots of food, we’ve got water and you can even bring your animals.” Many took him up on his offer. He even sent out his large trucks to bring people in. “Mattress Mack” used what he had. It was simple, yes, but a huge gesture to many, maybe even life-saving.”

Samaritan’s Purse – 4 Schools in 3 Days!

Just a couple of weeks ago I met with Jorge Rodrigues, Executive Director of Samaritan’s Purse Australia/New Zealand and toured its operation. It was very impressive, especially when I saw how many of the staff at Samaritan’s Purse are actually volunteering both their time and abilities.

Last month, Samaritan’s Purse opened four brand new school buildings in Cambodia. These replace the four derelict sheds which previously stood. It’s great to hear good news in the middle of so many arguments and insecurities in Australia.

Who Do You Follow?

I’m choosing not to spend my time on Twitter! But I am choosing to follow Jesus! Are you?

John Hingley, co-founder of “Dasheroo” which sells business dashboards, writes about what ‘following’ means for Twitter users. His comments make interesting reading when we consider who we are ‘following’ in life.

He says: “Twitter can be overwhelming if you’re not knee-deep in social media land, can’t it? You’re … not really sure how it all works, who to follow, who is following you, what to post, retweet, or reply to…it’s crazy!” To which we reply ‘Amen!’
