As I prepare to retire on 1 January I’m glad that one of my last acts as CEO and Superintendent of Wesley Mission is to thank you for the generosity and kindness you have shown to people in need by supporting our important work. It has been my privilege to lead Wesley Mission these past fifteen years.
With generous supporters like you, together we have been able to grow Wesley Mission’s capacity to respond to Australians in desperate need.
As I reflect on all we have been able to do together I want to take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude for your partnership in this work.
Without your financial support many of our innovative programs would have remained as ideas and dreams only.
I commend to you the incoming CEO and Superintendent of Wesley Mission, the Rev Stu Cameron and offer prayers and support as he and his wife Sue settle into life in Sydney.
I hope you will continue to support the vital work of Wesley Mission under Stu’s ministry.
