Hear what girls and their parents say about Girls’ Brigade!
Letters from parents:
Would you pass on my excitement from last weeks State GB event! It was so lovely to come along and see so many girls and parents there. It’s amazing for me to think that I’m coming along as a parent now! Thankyou all so much for putting on a great night. It was really relaxed and my daughter had a ball! It’s wonderful to be part of something that is bigger than what it feels like week to week, and it’s great that you all put the effort into holding State events like the BBQ and Games night. Thankyou!
How exciting it was to see girls (who were just girls only 8 years ago) now living grown-up lives committed to seeking, serving and following Jesus through the ministry of Girls’ Brigade! It was a real spin out so see those grown up girls! It’s okay for me to grow up, but it’s always a shock when other people do! 🙂 Thankyou for continuing to serve the girls of Canberra through Girls’ Brigade and let me encourage you (now as a parent of a girl), to keep going, look to Jesus for strength, inspiration and perseverance, and live lives of blessing to the girls you serve and the parents who watch on. Girls’ Brigade is a great opportunity to share the saving message of Jesus to our broken world, and I love how so many girls come along from such a variety of backgrounds and are exposed to the Bible and its teachings. Thanks again for a wonderful night, and know that you’re all in my prayers as you serve God in this way! Wendy ——————————-
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the other leaders of the Girls Brigade. Emilie has had a tough few years, moving from New Zealand and having a difficult experience of bullying at school. In the last year her father was seriously ill after heart surgery for a congenital problem.
Girls Brigade has been a constant buffer for her. She told me last week that she “loves it” and that it is her favourite part of her week. When I come home from work she is ready in her uniform. It has been a solid place for her where she has felt a sense of belonging. She has found friends and enjoys helping the younger girls. She looks forward to the trips for the “senior” girls and is excited about leadership training coming up in the next few months.
She is proud to bear the flag when it is her turn in the church services and feels honoured to be involved in the ANZAC day service as her grandfather is a returned Australian soldier. Our thanks, Blessings to you,Cherie and Wayne
