Kununurra is a mining and agricultural town in north-west Australia. It is located in the far east of the Kimberley and is only 37 kilometres from the border with the Northern Territory. There is a population of approximately 7000, about half of whom are North Australian Indigenous peoples. The town is surrounded by irrigated farmland and the main industries of the town are farming, mining and tourism. In land size, the Kununurra Parish is larger than Victoria and many of the Christian programs in the area have an Indigenous focus.

The Faricys' January Prayer Points

  • Give thanks for God’s faithfulness with the Combined Churches Christmas Carols proclaiming the good news of Jesus to 500 people this year. Pray that people in our community will respond in faith.
  • Pray for wisdom in January as Daniel makes plans for ministry in 2018. Pray that our church would grow in every area of Christian maturity.
  • Give thanks, while it was sad to be away from family at Christmas, for the blessing of being with our church family.
  • Pray that in January when everything in town slows down, our family embraces the wet and slower pace of life for a while.
  • Pray for Rachael who starts 'big school' next year (in WA they start a year earlier than NSW, and she’ll go 2½ days a week). Pray that she would make friends quickly and be a light for Jesus there.
  • Pray that 2018 will be a year where God’s kingdom grows in Kununurra. Pray that we can diligently use this ‘down time’ to plan well for the year ahead.
