Vivienne is from the Kamilaroi Tribe of New England area of NSW. In the early years she lived at the Toomelah Community near the NSW/Queensland border. Vivienne shares: ‘I was raised by Christian parents and as a child of 9 years made a commitment to the Lord during a mission at our local A.I.M. Church.’
As a young woman Vivienne had the privilege of completing three years at Bible College in NSW, followed by work with the Australian Indigenous Ministries (A.I.M.) in Darwin, Tennant Creek, Fingal, Karuah, Condobolin and Cherbourg. Today she continues a life long faithful, selfless service for her Lord and to her indigenous people.
When she moved to Logan she was burdened for there to be a church for her people in the Logan area. She is a foundation member of the Church of Christ Aboriginal Community Centre at Logan and continues a deep and active involvement with the Logan Church and the A.I.M. auxillary in Brisbane on the State Council.
So many know and repect ‘Auntie Viv’. She was recently asked to begin a basketball championship weekend by opening in prayer.
Pray for and Praise God for such people who live for their Lord and boldly acknowledge Him right at the ‘ground level’ in the community.
