"As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.  “Do not get an gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts— no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep.
- Matthew 10:7-10

The prayers, congratulations and best wishes of the members of the Province of Oceania go with each member of the new council
