Kununurra is a mining and agricultural town in north-west Australia, part of the Diocese of 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' February Prayer Points

  • Pray that as school/work starts back that God would provide members of St. James lots of opportunities for being Jesus light in the community and to share the good news of the gospel.
  • For our church, pray that we grow in our Christian maturity and that we’d be intentional about seeking godliness.
  • Pray for wisdom as our church elects a new Parish Council & Wardens at our AGM at the end of February.
  • Give thanks for a good restful holiday in Perth. We’re thankful for all the parks we could visit.
  • Pray for our family as we adapt back into the school routine, especially for Jess who will be going to school every day for the first time.
