By the grace of God, Penguin congregation witnessed a very special adult Baptism on Sunday. Praise the Lord.
The Penguin Stars exceeded their target of 10,000 by July 2017 – a total of 13,500 stars were taken to Brisbane by Bill and Jeanne Koetsier. On the way, 500 stars were collected from the Glen Waverley Uniting Church and in Sydney 2000 stars were added to the total by the Galston Uniting church. A total of 18,000 stars were handed in to the Human Ventures headquarters in Brisbane. These will be sent to the Brisbane Museum where the installation of one million stars will be created for the Commonwealth Games in 2018. Maryann Talia Pau, the initiator of this project was delighted to receive the stars from Tasmania and sent this message to all Penguin Stars weavers – Thank you for all your love and support. You have blessed this movement! Lots of love Maryann XX
