The Yackandandah Rural Men’s Camp will be on the weekend of July 21, 22 & 23 2017
This year we are excited to have Simon Manchester, Levi McGrath and Rod Hauser as our speakers.
John Anderson describes Simon as one of the greatest bible teachers in Australia today. Currently he serves as the senior pastor at St Thomas’ Anglican church in North Sydney.
Levi is a gifted contemporary Christian musician with a message of justice and God’s grace. He instantly creates a genuine connection with young and old, and inspires with his stories and musicianship.
Rod was an outstanding Rugby Union player with the Australian Wallabies from 1973 – 1979. Presently he works at St Paul’s College at Walla Walla developing sports programs and mentoring students.
We have recently been updated about the good work that has been a result of a bequest.
MAF and CRMF have made a positive difference to lives in Papua New Guinea by being the driving change to support isolated communities in its mission to bring God’s word.
Supplying Bible boxes containing valuable Bible resources to boost learning and literacy in the English language as well as the local language. Boxes provided include a wide range of Bible resources, such as: Book, digital, audio, video and SD cards.
The benefit of reading or hearing God’s Word has transformed lives within their community. Testimonies of young men starting to respect elders, woman and young girls and the property of other villages encourages us to keep such projects going.

In the last 12 months Steer Incorporated through our ministry partner’s generosity was able to boost the funding to all these ministries and more through the $2.78 million we distributed to over 300 missions.
At Steer Incorporated we have some very generous partners in ministry. Above is a graph which shows the broad sweep of where we have been sending funds generated through Steer in the last 12 months. It gives us a boost to see these results and we hope it does the same for you to. We are thankful for God’s provision for making this possible.
Ramez Atallah (General Director of the Bible Society of Egypt) who is a former colleague of mine, shared this with me just recently. Do read the following and watch the brief video, it’s really moving and gives us a new perspective on life. This is a true example of forgiveness which we would do well to follow.
“Social Media is abuzz. In many instances, Muslims who are outraged at the blind and evil hatred of this atrocity, have expressed frustration with Christians in all their talk of love and forgiveness. As with previous attacks, the sense of revenge is minimal as families embrace martyrdom as a gift from and to God. Click on the video below to see the Muslim interviewer’s astonishment with the widow of the gatekeeper who prevented the suicide bomber from entering the Alexandria church yard, thereby saving countless lives. What is happening in Egypt is not a 2000-year-old legend, but a modern, living testimony to the power of the Christian faith.”
