Nungalinya eNews - June 2016

AuSIL Moving to Nungalinya College Site
Co-location, Shared vision
 

Dear <<First Name>>
I am pleased to announce that AuSIL (the Australian Society for Indigenous Languages) are moving their offices from Palmerston to Nungalinya College. They will be renting the lot of land  and building that was the Resource Centre and Textile Art Workshop as well as the two story house on campus. Not only will this be a financial assistance to the College, but we have many shared goals. AuSIL will run a Resource Centre (replacing our own) making available Indigenous language and English Bibles and resources for students and people in Darwin. They already come and put language Bibles on students phones and will be able to continue this service from the new convenient location. Both Nungalinya College and AuSIL are committed to assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people gain access to the Scriptures in their own languages, and also to continue to develop resources for education.  We are looking forward to the opportunities this closer physical location with each other will bring. The volunteers pictured above are hard at work renovating the building for AuSIL.

Prayer Points

If you are short on time:

  • Pray for Jude Long as she teaches the first subject of the Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology in Alice Springs from 13-17 June. Pray for wisdom as we experiment with offering the course in the Centre.
  • Give thanks for the volunteers who come and work at the college. Pray for safety and productivity for volunteers arriving over the next month.
  • Pray for the staff as we finish off another very busy term - for good health, energy and enthusiasm for their work.
If you have a bit longer:
  • Pray for the move of AuSIL to the Nungalinya site that the renovations will be completed in time and the move take place smoothly.
  • Give thanks we have found weekend hosts from Term 3. Continue to pray for a new Development Officer and for Jude Long as she juggles the additional load until one is appointed.
  • Pray for students who have now completed their first intensives that they will be able to complete their homework and prepare to return next term.
Katherine Christian Convention
Nungalinya College was the featured mission at the Katherine Christian Convention held at the start of May. It is estimated that over 1,000 Indigenous and Non-Indigenous people gathered to hear God's word, sing and pray together over the long weekend. On the Saturday night, the Principal, Dr Jude Long invited any of the people there who were current or past students or staff to come to the front. It was immensely encouraging to see how many came forward - and many more were there as well.
