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' February Prayer Points

  • We praise God for the birth of Emily Grace Faricy on 5th January, weighing 3.4kgs. She is healthy. Please pray with us that her life would be one lived in service of the King Jesus.
  • Pray that God would help our family adapt well to having a newborn and the work/school routine February brings.
  • Pray that our church will be a church that delights in God’s word. Particularly pray that regular Bible reading plans that many have started will help St. James to grow to maturity in Christ.
  • We’re starting a preaching series in 1 Thessalonians – pray that we would be congregation showing faith, hope and love as we await the return of Jesus.
  • Pray that 2019 would be a year of sharing of the gospel with our community for St. James. Ask that God would prepare peoples hearts and minds to respond in repentance and faith as they hear it.
  • Give thanks for ministry partnerships, especially those we have with Slacks in Katherine and the Baines in Broome.
