Heavenly Father, thank you that though we feel far away from other groups like ours, we are united in the gospel and are partners together in your work. Thank you that we have been made your people through Christ and that no barrier separates us. Help us to draw encouragement from seeing you at work in your kingdom, not only in us but in all those around us. Thank you for the students and staff in Townsville, and the way we can join with them on the ground for so many things. May we be spurred on by them. Thank you too for the chance to hear how you have been working in universities around the country at the National Training Event in December. May many of our students be able to join in with this event this year and be encouraged to keep making the most of Jesus while they are at uni.
