Morie became a Christian in his early twenties. A fortnight later his sweetheart made a commitment as well. After a trip to Condamine for their wedding, they moved to Marian to work on a cane farm. It was a blessing to start married life as believers. It was at Marian that Morie and Christine started going to bible study at Chris and Hesta’s home. Morie could not get enough of the Bible and was not afraid to ask questions. It did not take him long to become involved with Sunday School, then presenting the short course of ‘Christianity Explained’, as well as leading bible studies and sharing God’s Word in sermons. Morie’s favourite pastime is sitting down and having a cuppa with people. Morie and Christine feel blessed to be in fellowship with Beaches Baptist Church.
