Provincial Mothers' Union of the Anglican Church of Melanesia welcomes the arrival of Reverend Libbib Crossman to Solomon Islands.
Rev Crossman is President of the Mothers' Union in Australia. She opened the Provincial Mothers' Union Council meeting at All Saints this morning and will be meeting with Archbishop David Vunagi and local general secretary before starting her outdoor visits tomorrow.
The Vice president of Provincial Mothers' Union, Catherine Lamani said this was the first time a woman leader of an Anglican Church in Australia visits them, and that this is a good opportunity for them to showcase the work Mothers' Union has been doing in the Solomon Islands. “[Revd. Crossman] will help boost the spiritual side of [people's] lives and also see the work of the Mothers' Union here”, she said.
Rev Crossman preached to hundreds of people yesterday morning at the Cathedral church on the story of the feeding of the five thousand. “I am very happy to come here and see for myself the progress of Mothers' Union in this country,” she said. “What I want to communicate to women here is the importance of leadership. I will talk about the passion of leadership and give them a sense of direction.”
Rev Crossman will visit the Diocease of Central Solomon Islands in Gela on Tuesday; Gueora Parish, Tasimboko Ilanga Parish (including members of Mothers' Union at Guadalcanal plains) and Christian Outreach Centre on Wednesday; and visit Sahalu Parish including Bishop Patterson Theological College at Kohimarama and Tabalia on Thursday. She returns to Brisbane, Australia on Friday.
