    Hi Felicia

    Hope it’s OK to send this mail here, and I hope this email finds you all well and happy in the Lord. Shalom blessings from Townsville.

    A friend of mine a beautiful Christian woman, Judy Foote is leaving Wednesday to fly to Port Moresby, she is a midwife, meeting up with YWAM ship and also had planned to do some work up there in the community either side of her joining the YWAM ship.

    She received a text message today from her friend in Port Moresby who was providing her with some accommodation. Unfortunately the lady has had to cancel the arrangement because she had family arrive unexpectedly. Judy is now looking for other accommodation and I was wondering if you you knew anyone who might be able to assist her. Only for a couple of nights. Or if you could recommend somewhere suitable for her to stay. she isn’t quite where would be the best place to start and enquire.

    Love from us all here in Townsville. Can you believe how fast this last year has gone by?

    All the best for Christmas and the New Year from us here as well.

    Bronwyn Vaughan, Townsville Aglow Secretary.
