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.”

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.

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!’

With your help, this is just a glimpse of what Steer has been able to achieve in the 2016/2017 financial year.
Steer took a phone call this morning and it was a thank you call. We really appreciate the efforts of our Ministry Partners to take the time and acknowledge our efforts in trying to make a difference. All of us at Steer thrive on encouragement like the simple act of a thank you. It fuels our prayers to help doing the best we can do to help others.
