God’s work

The Northland Age - - Opinion -

When I heard way back then that our beau­ti­ful, spir­i­tual town, Kaitaia, was known as the mur­der cap­i­tal of New Zealand I im­me­di­ately got down on my knees and asked my Lord to help.

God an­swered my prayer, telling me, ‘Por­line, I want to you to get into your nana car and drive through­out your home town and pray ev­ery day, and bless my peo­ple as you go.

‘Rest on Sun­days; go forth and pre­pare my way, for I am here in your town.’

For three and a half years I have driven for God, do­ing His will and know­ing God does not give up on His peo­ple, who he loves so much.

Ev­ery church, and church fam­ily, within our com­mu­nity pray and pray to our Lord, as we want ev­ery­one to have a good life, a happy life, with­out the suf­fer­ing that does not come from our God.

God is real. God is love. God is life.

I heard on the news that North­land has been ex­posed as hav­ing the high­est read­ing of

the evil drug P. I want to thank our Lord for open­ing up the sewer doors and re­veal­ing the truth.

Ev­ery day our com­mu­ni­ties are faced with the dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects this evil drug has upon our wha¯ nau, the suf­fer­ing of our tamariki of all ages and mokop­una starv­ing, un­happy, bro­ken wha¯ nau be­ing ripped apart, all be­cause of this evil, evil drug P.

I know now, Lord, your an­gels will be sent forth to erad­i­cate this de­struc­tive drug, and I thank you so very much Lord that you are at the helm.

God go with your an­gels in force, be­cause your love conquers over evil.

God bless our town and God

bless you for be­ing here with us all. POR­LINE GINTY


lis­tened to by our gov­ern­ment.’

Well Ivan, have these words come true for you or the tens of thou­sands of men and women over the years who have served in many bat­tles, with great loss of life and in­juries? Let’s not for­get the in­no­cent who also suf­fered.

Our politi­cians, judges etc award them­selves the ti­tle Hon­ourable, but I am of the view that they are noth­ing other than hyp­ocrites, as there is only one who can claim such a ti­tle, and that is the Cre­ator Heav­enly Fa­ther.

Sad as it is, the woman Juliet and her hus­band are only a num­ber, just like you were in the ser­vice, along with the many

el­derly need­ing care in their last years, months or days of their lives as their fi­nal walk through his­tory comes to an end while politi­cians carry on their merry game, as has been the case for thou­sands of years.

Where is the Chris­tian and com­mu­nity sup­port for our el­derly in care, and for an hon­est, hard-work­ing, re­spected nurse tak­ing such won­der­ful care of them? Both these peo­ple have given years of ser­vice to our com­mu­nity and coun­try.

What was the re­sponse to my let­ter many months ago re­gard­ing Juliet’s plight, when I asked the com­mu­nity to show its love and con­cern for our el­derly in care and the harsh treat­ment of a ded­i­cated woman?

Only one phone call in sup­port of a protest march in sup­port of this won­der­ful woman, from Cr Mate Radich. Hard to be­lieve, but true, con­sid­er­ing the num­ber of peo­ple who have passed on from this life in our won­der­ful Switzer Home. I ask, where are the fam­i­lies and friends of these peo­ple who have passed on?

Is the Switzer Care Unit just a place to dump our rub­bish when we no longer want it? It would ap­pear so by the re­sponse, leav­ing me to be­lieve that our Chris­tian and moral values are dead. Just as the Bi­ble says, we have be­come lovers of our­selves and money.

Who knows when it could be our turn to re­quire care in the Switzer Home? Do we not want the best of care? I say yes, so let’s stand up and be counted by sup­port­ing Juliet and the won­der­ful sup­port she has given to those in their time of need.

Thanks, Ivan, for your let­ter of sup­port for Juliet. The words of the song ‘We don’t know what we’ve got till it’s gone’ ring so true in my ears.

Leave it to the politi­cians and we will end up with noth­ing. I be­lieve the Bi­ble ad­vises us of that. JOHN BAS­SETT
