This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet Wesley Mission's Susan Cann and the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores 1 Kings.

Susan’s story
Executive Manager of Wesley Home & Carer Support, Susan Cann, oversees 250 Wesley Mission staff who support more than 1,300 clients across Sydney and beyond. A carer herself, Susan’s own life experience brings a wealth of knowledge and compassion to her role. She talks about some of the programs Wesley Home & Carer Support offers and a typical day in the life of a Wesley Mission Carer. She also shares the challenges and blessings of her job as well as how her faith in Jesus Christ underpins her ability to minister in a challenging yet fulfilling role.
