Geraldton is one of the more remote corps in the Australia Territory, situated in the Mid West region of Western Australia, 420km north of Perth. Majors Peter and Wendy Spindler are the corps officers in Geraldton, where Peter recently brought a Christmas message to his community via the Geraldton Guardian newspaper.



Christmas can mean many different things to many people.

For some, it is a time of joy, holidays, catching up with family and friends, but for others, it can be a lonely and isolating experience.

While some enjoy being able to have presents and food on the table, others struggle just to eat on the day.

The real reason for the season is that Jesus Christ came as a babe, and then grew into adulthood to give people hope, joy, love and peace.

This means that as a community we are to embrace Christ’s example to others and share these four keys with others.

When we give out hope, joy, love and peace to others then we find a change happening in their lives. To put a smile on someone’s face at Christmas time is a humbling experience and can show them what genuine care is all about.

May we each find it in our hearts to consider others this Christmas time and how we all can make a difference in someone’s life.

Peace and blessings to all.
