Thoughts from your President, Maxine Paul…. Well, I can’t believe I’m back already and Easter is but days away. What a lovely time I had though… After my last newsletter we visited two more ports in Australia – Cairns and Port Douglas, an Indonesian island, Manila in the Philippines and Hong Kong briefly during a stop-over on the flight home. A totally different experience in each place. The Great Barrier Reef and its amazing corals to just wonder at; the friendliness of the awe-struck people of Sulawesi who spent the whole day on the dockside (mostly in pouring rain) singing and dancing for us and with us, posing with us for their photo albums and even asking for autographs; the stunning sunrise in Manila Bay and the opulence of the roaring twenties-style Manila Hotel followed by the joy of being reunited with our son for Mothering Sunday and seeing the naïve artistry of the petroglyphs (cave etchings) made by some of the earliest peoples of SE Asia dating back to before 2000BC; the huge crowds of central Hong Kong piling onto the world’s longest escalator and the extravagance of the newest shopping mall. I have experienced God’s goodness in so many ways from the sights, sounds and smells of the natural world to the sheer ability to be able to see it all. So, as Easter approaches, we turn our eyes to The Cross and wonder, yet again, at the miracle of Easter as a testament to God's love and power. I pray that you may experience this mighty love in your life. With love. Maxine x I’ve just heard from Kathryn that you have placed your confidence in me for a second term of three years and that Bishop Guli has also approved. Thank you, so much. I feel truly humbled and blessed to be able to continue to serve you xx
