Nungalinya eNews - September 2016

Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology Graduates

Dear Jude 

We are now in "Graduation Season" , probably our favourite time of the year. We had our first graduation on the 19th August, and will have 2 more graduations in September.  We only had Anglicans and Uniting Church graduates at this graduation so Certificates were presented by Rev Kate Beer representing the Anglican Northern Territory Diocese and Rev Thresi Mauboy, Moderator of the Uniting Church Northern Synod (pictured above). We were greatly encouraged by what students shared about the impact of their studies and their hopes for the future.


On the 16th September we have the Certificate II in Media and Discipleship graduation and film festival. A highlight of the media graduations is we view the short film each student produced about their own story. These are often then available of YouTube and also screened on ICTV.

On the 30th September we will have our second Certificate III in Christian Ministry and Theology graduation. We are expecting quite a large group of students for this intensive as a number could not make it for the last intensive. It should also be a wonderful celebration.

During this time we will also have our last Foundation Studies block for the year and also offering our last block of creche.

It will no doubt be a very busy month and we are expecting a full house of students, so please pray for staff as we manage all the challenges that will bring. 
 

Prayer Points

If you are short on time:

  • Continue to pray for the children in creche with a new group arriving this weekend. Pray the children will settle well and staffing will be consistent.
  • Pray for the residential services staff as we will have a full house of students for the rest of the term
  • Pray for a new Uniting Church Dean to take over from Felicity Amery at the end of the year.
If you have a bit longer:
  • Pray that the new Territory government will make good decisions to care for people in remote communities.Pray  also that changes of government will not affect our funding for next year.
  • Pray for Warwick and Wangarr as they teach the Media Studies course
  • Pray that our application to become a Public Benevolent Institution will be successful
Pass it on!

From the Bible

John 14:6

New International Version (NIV) 
Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 

Denis Duncan
My name is Dennis Duncan. I have lived at Urapunga Community since my childhood. My language is Ngandi, my clan group is Nundjipi, and I speak Kriol.
 
I read the Bible in Kriol and English, pray for healing, and help in the church services and fellowship. I help others get together to pray and worship God.
 
It was good to come to Nungalinya College because  this is where  I  found  the Lord  was working  in my life through all  the good teaching from  the teachers. And all the support staff as well. Praise God for the wonderful care they showed us.
 
As I go back I want to show love and care to my family and all the people in Urapunga. I want to do the things I learned at college. I want to keep going by assisting and encouraging our church leader.
 
I would like to come back to college to continue to learn to follow Jesus by doing Cert IV.
Kylinda Brown
 
My name is Kylinda Brown.
I come from the West Arnhem community called Warruwi.
My language is Maung.
 
My activities at my church are teaching the children to know Jesus and doing actions songs, colouring, reading the Bible and singing songs in language.
 
Coming to Nungalinya College I learned more about knowing the Lord.  It has given me more encouragement to go back and teach my people in my community.
 
My next step is I'm going back home to help start a movement to lift my church alive and bring my brothers and sisters into the hands of Christ.
