This is JOHN QUAY celebrating his 40 years (Tuesday 14th February 2017) as a staff member of MAF and Steer Incorporated, at the Court Street offices.
Up to 8 Christian missions use the premises where John helps Steer Incorporated each day and others as needed. His desire is to serve God, through a generous use of his time.
“Every mission in our building benefits from John’s friendly assistance and fellowship, especially through his habit of bringing me Irish jokes and the rest of us treats – chocolate and potato chips are the favourites!!”, said Tony Crook, CEO of Steer Incorporated.
Now in his seventies, John challenges all of us to remain healthy in body and spirit. To John, goes our equivalent of the Gold Logie.

David Williams, present CMS Regional Director SA/NT, encourages all CMS supporters to consider the “Steer option” at the CMS summer conference in Adelaide this weekend (19 – 21st Jan 2017).
Also attending at the CMS conference is Steer CEO, Tony Crook. Tony explained and encouraged a couple of hundred people who are committed to CrossCultural mission ways, to use Steer to support more effectively. There’s been a good level of interest.
Pray that there will be even more action as a result.
Mostly the world is a great place, mostly people live in harmony. One place that is troubled and often forgotten is South Sudan. Born in conflict and bloodshed. Now they are booting out peaceful people who most of all would like to help. For example, take a look at SIM Australia’s facebook post/blog on Jan 3 2017.
It’s really easy at Christmas and New Year to find that all the hype, the TV, email and social media has numbed your generosity impulses. Then there’s the misused gifts, the waste and the relentless pictures of people in genuine need. The danger is that, feeling overwhelmed we switch off our generosity.
