I went to a premier showing of a documentary on the Intervention in the NT on 22nd  October. I wasn’t surprised by what I heard and saw. This DVD, called Our Generation, is told from the view of our Mob in Elcho Island and I recommend it you.
 There were 500 people that attended the Capitol Theatre in Melbourne and everybody who came were concerned about what has occurred since the Intervention has come into being, but what the rest of the Australia is not hearing is the story of the people who are involved.
 Rev Dr Djinyiyinni Gondarra (former National Chairperson of Uniting Aboriginal & Islander Christian Congress) is featured in this DVD, compelling and very informative, that traces the lives of those to whom the Intervention has had an impact on.
 You can get more information, watch the trailer and order a copy from the following site:

Hope you are challenged to do something.

Christian Teams in National Indigenous Basketball Competition
Please pray for the 40 or so members of the ECCIYN (East Coast Christian Indigenous Youth Network ) Basketball teams as they begin to travel to Melbourne from various states of Australia to compete and be a witness to Christ at the National Indigenous Basketball Competition.  
They will arrive Sunday afternoon, November 14, at Footscray Church of Christ (Gordon St) where they will lead the worship service at 7pm. They will also be 'camping' there in the church hall.  
The Basketball Competition will be held at MSAC, Albert Park and runs from Monday, November 15 to Wednesday, November 17.
Wednesday night the ECCIYN teams are inviting all players in the comp to a BBQ and singalong @ Footscray Church of Christ!  A generous act of hospitality to reach out with God's love to all the other teams.
Please pray for: Tony and Francine Richies, Denis and Maureen Atkinson, Nick and Anita Wight and others as they provide support (and food!) for the young people. Also for Milton and Pam Wynne as they bring a team up from Narana [Geelong].
