We thank God for 50 years of Tearfund Australia

We are tearfund 4 L1 A7602


Throughout October 2021, Tearfund ran online supporter events across the country, connecting with supporters new and old and taking time to be reminded of God’s faithfulness.

It was real joy and encouragement to spend time sharing, praying together and hearing from Ray Minniecon, Deborah Storie, CB Samuel, Dominique Emery, Steve Bevis and Joel McKerrow.
