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 a church we’d start the year strong, devoting ourselves to reading God’s word, prayer and service. We have been doing a short series on these things at church. Praise God the response so far has been encouraging.
  • Pray for our ‘share the gospel’ course starting on the 11th of March. Pray that many from our church would come and be equipped to share the gospel.
  • Praise God for the refreshment of holidays. Pray for Rachael as she starts back at school and for Jessica who starts school 2½ days a week. Pray that they’d settle well with their new teachers and gives thanks they have friends in their classes. Praise God for Emily who has just started walking.
  • We’re looking to start another grow group (aka bible study) fortnightly on Sunday afternoons. Pray that there would be some keen families who would commit to this group.
  • Pray for Bec, that God would give her wisdom to know where to invest her time and help her make meaningful connections that would lead to opportunities to share the good news of Jesus.
  • As the year begins with lots happening, pray that we as a family and a church would rely upon God in prayer knowing that we cannot do His kingdom work in our own strength. Give thanks for our heavenly Father who provides us with all things.
