Thank you to all who are involved in making CHH a great outreach team. And thank you to the Emmanuel congregation who respond each time we seek some help. You are wonderful. More HELP is needed later this year. An essential part of the CHH program are the two drivers who take turns alternate weeks to go to Foodbank in Morningside. We are now seeking a volunteer who would be willing to make fortnightly visits to Foodbank in Morningside over the second half of the year when one of our drivers will be with family far away. This important role helps keep our CHH food cupboard stocked with food, and brings the weekly box of bananas for Chappy Sarah at Enoggera School. We really need some help in this matter so please keep this important volunteer need for CHH in your prayers. Please contact R. Gepp if this seems a likely opportunity for you.
