Hi – I am Coral, National Commissioner for Girls’ Brigade Australia. I live with my husband and family in Perth, on the west coast of Australia, venue for the next ICGB and I am looking forward to meeting many of you here in July 2014!
At a Billy Graham crusade in Melbourne I clearly heard God calling me to go forward as an outward sign of my decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ. Since then He has worked in my life transforming it bit by bit (and there is still a long, long way to go!) into His image.
This verse in the Bible constantly reminds me that God has started His transforming work in me and will continue until He is finished, He will not give up, no matter what:
There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.
As God works in my life, there are tough times, lonely times, as well as mountaintop times and ordinary, everyday times.
I believe that God does not expect us to travel alone, he will journey with us, and he gives us amazing people to journey with. There are some very wonderful, Godly women around my life, and they help me so much.
Throughout my years in Girls’ Brigade, first as a girl, then as a leader, Girls’ Brigade friends have been there to laugh with and cry with. We have worshipped together and prayed for each other, we share the good times and the hard times. They have been my mentors, those to whom I am accountable, and my friends. None of us are perfect, yet God has brought us together to share life and encourage each other in our journey following him.
This is a story about Girls' Brigade Pacific
Girls’ Brigade Pacific is represented in 10 countries in the Pacific, each with their own unique culture. As a Christian Organisation we provide activities that will provide the girls with values and life skills, as they develop spiritually, physically, educationally and socially.
