Hope in the face of tragedy

30 October 2016 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we talk to Louisa Hope, Sydney Lindt Café siege survivor. Our band director Craig Gower and Deb Ezzy-Walton perform the song ‘Because He Lives’.

We look at Taylor’s story, a young person who came into contact with Wesley Mission through our Wesley Aunties & Uncles program. It is a program that supports young people who need occasional or weekend care and mentoring.

Special guest: Louisa Hope

Less than two years ago Louisa walked into the Lindt Café to meet her mother for a coffee. As they were having their drinks, a gunman walked in and from that point on Louisa life would never be the same.

Since then, Louisa has forgiven the gunman and started a foundation called Louisa Hope Nursing fund for nurses at Prince of Wales hospital. The fund has raised over $100,000 in the past year.

Guest performer: Craig Gower and Deb Ezzy-Walton

We welcome Craig Gower and Deb Ezzy-Walton from the Wesley Impact band to inspire us with ‘Because He Lives’.

Keith’s message: Rise above the crowd

Rev Keith Garner explores the story of a relatively wealthy person, Zacchaeus, who climbed a tree so that he might rise above the crowd to see Jesus. Salvation is never just a personal matter. When Zacchaeus had his change of heart, Jesus announced salvation had come to Zacchaeus’ house. Everyone was touched by what had happened.
