“My wife and two daughters and I are feeling really settled and enjoying Toowoomba,” said Ps Andrew.
While at his first Christian Leaders Network prayer meeting last month, the New Zealand-born Samoan raised in Australia was an instant hit with his sense of humour and relaxed nature.
“They call us mixed Aussies – Mozzies,” said Ps Andrew.
Previously at Deception Bay, north of Brisbane, Ps Andrew said he was “blown away” by the number of Pastors and Christian Leaders who gather for weekly prayer and fellowship at CLN every Thursday morning.
“Where I was before, we tried to get together with other Pastors, but it was a lot smaller than this, and it was hard to get people to come along,” he said.
“I’ve never seen anything like CLN. God has been doing something special here for a long time and I’m looking forward to getting to know the Pastors here.”
Ps Andrew said it was very evident that the Pastors of Toowoomba really enjoy getting together every week for prayer and that this kind of unity means a lot to him.
“God made us all different,” he said. “And we are to celebrate that. But we all fit into His plan somewhere, so it’s important that we can come alongside each other.”
He said he was passionate about young people and seeing churches grow.
“I want to see people getting involved in the community and living out God's purpose for their lives,” said Ps. Andrew.
