Our crew of 50+ students and staff returned from the Annual Outback Mission with incredible experiences, stories, community connections… plus some great images.
About the Mission
During the recent Term 1 holiday, 50-plus students and staff journeyed to the Outback, serving on several remote properties in Western Queensland. Joining Care Outreach for two weeks and serving folks on remote stations. The team did an exceptional job connecting with different properties and engaging in various tasks such as fencing, handling stock, yard work, machinery work, painting and general duties.
The students worked tirelessly with a great attitude and sense of humour, creating unforgettable memories and gaining a deep respect for those living in the Australian Outback. The Outback Mission provides students with physical and emotional challenges that greatly assist in developing their faith, character and learning. This is mainly evident in the relationships that students that are formed between the farming families and their Suncoast coastal cousins.
Inspired by the words of Matthew 20:28: “..just the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
