Year 9 Student - Great Report
Dear College families,
We just wanted to say a huge thankyou for the way our community lifted up one of our students in prayer and financial generosity through a slice fundraising event at Middle and Secondary campus. We raised over $2000 for his family.
The great report is that through much prayer and God’s hand at work, his family was able to travel from Taiwan to be with their son over the past several weeks. After further medical treatment and fighting for medical clearance the family have all been able to return home.
We are blessed to be a part of this community here at Brisbane Christian College. The family express their deepest gratitude for your prayers and support. Thank you for joining with us for this amazing young man.
