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
