Increase in Careline Callers
There has been a 20% increase in callers (ie number of unique people) calling the Careline during October. People called about their relationships with partner, friends or family as well as calling for general prayer.
Can you spare some time or money to help provide care for these people?
Careline Connections at Connect 23
Andrew and Gary attended the annual CMAA conference Connect 23 on the Gold Coast. The Conference included an Awards night which recognised those associated with Christian media who had made a valuable contribution in the past. The awards night also recognised great work of those currently in media organisations. The music of Riley Clements was a highlight. The Conference include guest speakers and panel discussions on issues facing Christian media today.
Andrew and Gary spoke to over 20 of the Careline media partners and spent time with supporters of Careline from a number of organisations across Australia. You can read a full report of Conect 23 at here.
