KAPUNA CELLPHONE APPEAL
Communication is a big struggle in Papua New Guinea and Scott & Nikki have a lot of requests for help with cellphones. If you have a cellphone lying around or are upgrading and wouldn’t mind donating your old one, can you please let Scott and Nikki know via email and they will email you. They plan to sell them heavily discounted from their second-hand value and once they cover the cost of shipping and duty charges they will donate the remainder to the Kapuna Church. So, a great opportunity of getting good second hand phones to people who need them and also supporting the Church in Kapuna and the great community building work they do!
CHRISTMAS BOX FOR THE WHEELERS
As the Wheelers are always in need of necessity items which they cannot get in Kapuna, we thought we would send a box to them with items that would beneift their family. If you would like to donate some items for this box, please email Vanessa email@example.com and she will let you know what the Wheeler’s are currently in need of. Or, if you would prefer to donate cash towards these items (or postage) then please arrange a direct payment into the Karori Anglican bank account and note Wheelers as the reference. Thank you!
Many thanks to those who have increased their giving to the church. August was the highest giving month of the year (so far). When you’re considering your donations we encourage you to reflect on how much God is asking you to give.
FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM PAGES
Te Korōria now has its own Facebook and Instagram page. Please click on the links below, follow them, and invite your friends to follow too. The more people who follow us, the better our communication reach for the new build and fundraising.

WOULD YOU LIKE A KARORI ANGLICAN CAP?
We are thinking of getting some caps printed and want to know how many of you might be interested in purchasing them before we place an order. We thought they would be great to wear when we are out in the community working on mission projects (like with Karori Kaitiaki – cleaning up the environment) and we will also be super sun smart! The cap will be a dark navy blue with our Karori Anglican logo on the front. The cost will be $20 per cap. Could you please let Heidi know ASAP if you are interested in purchasing one (or more) – we need a minimum of 30 to place an order.
ST MARY’S CHURCH PEWS
Pews are still available to purchase. Request a pricing schedule via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
