Last weekend Michael and I experienced ‘One Good Day’ with David and Angela Armstrong, their family and the families they serve. These guys believe that every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander should have ‘One Good Day’ – they are determined to make it happen.
We arrived at the Shalvey, NSW venue mid morning and were greeted by David’s daughter Elizabeth lapping up the sunshine while Bible College student Watson, was rocking on the verandah. The kettle had just boiled which is always welcoming and there were a couple of families sitting on the lawn. David and Angela were still out picking up families around the region and the church would start when everyone arrived.
David arrived first with his pick-ups, others arrived independently and finally Angela arrived with her final carload. There were lots of children, lots of noise, mums and aunties, and one aunty who stood out to me as a shining light; Aunty Margaret. She was in her seventies, beaming from ear to ear and carried a song in her heart. She was passionate about Jesus.
