Yesterday, the 27th of May kicked off National Reconciliation week. Did you know that 90% of Australians do not know an Aboriginal person? GMP is a strong supporter of National Reconciliation Week. NRW is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. During the week we will be posting links to informative articles that will help many of us #standtogether for reconciliation. #GlobalMissionPartners #IndigenousMinistriesAustralia #reconciliation

Well HUGE thank you to eveyone that supported GMP's inaugural Walk For Hope event! You went above and beyond our initial expectations for this brand new initiative raising just over $11,000! Your participation, fundraising and support will help bring hope around the world, giving more people access to Christian ministries. Please watch the video below, it is a personal thank you from our church partners in Fiji.
See you all for next year's Walk For Hope! #GMPWalkForHope #ThisIsWhyWeGive

On International Living Together In Peace Day let's acknowledge that living together in peace is accepting differences and having the ability to listen to, recognise, respect and appreciate others, as well as living in a peaceful and united way. #LiveInPeace #InternationalLivingTogetherInPeaceDay #listen #recognise #respect #appreciate #accept

Today is the International Day of Families.
Although families all over the world have transformed greatly over the past decades in terms of their structure and as a result of global trends and demographic changes, the United Nations still recognises the family as the basic unit of society. When families come under attack by society pressures, poverty, disease, lack of human rights or war the attack is on the fabric of human society. As GMP partners with communities around the world we continue to champion and pray for the local families we encounter. #InternationalDayOfFamilies #GlobalMissionPartners

VANUATU UPDATE:Manaro Voui Volcano continues to spew out ash, rock, sulphurous gas and lava affecting the whole island of Ambae, Vanuatu. Londua Technical College, on the west coast, received official government notification this morning that they need to have everything packed and ready for loading onto a ship to transfer off the island by Monday 15 May (the first day of Term 2). Londua will move to Bombua High School on the island of Santo. They are anticipating that this transfer will be for at least a year and potentially permanently. The staff and students seek our prayers in this challenging time of relocation. #PrayForAmbae
