Finke River Mission
Wilbur and Monika Klein normally live and work at Tjuntjuntjara, 660km east of Kalgoorlie WA. They decided to use their long service leave volunteering with FRM for the first six months of 2015.
Lutheran Community Care worker Wendy-Lea Lechleitner has deep roots in the Lutheran Church so when a position came up for a Money Worker on the ‘Mission Block’, she jumped at the chance.
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church at Areyonga is a fine example of a strong and proud congregation. On 22 February, the community celebrated the first baptism in their newly renovated church.
On Saturday 7th March 2015, the new church at Tara was officially opened by Finke River Mission Pastor Darryl Mattner and local pastors Christopher Tjanima and Michael Tjapiard.
Pastor Darryl Mattner was installed to work in the Anmatjere and Alyawarr region. The area is about three hours north-west, three hours north and about four hours north-east from Alice Springs.
