Seeds of Change Appeal 2020

There are many factors that go into running Mustard, and at the beginning of 2020 we saw a lot of them change. A few long serving staff members departed to continue their journeys, a new Director started, and a global pandemic hit meaning our student lunchtime groups could no longer meet in person and we couldn’t go into schools with our live presentations. Needless to say, this is A LOT of change in a short amount of time. However, in spite of all this, we know that God continues to work to bring about life-giving change and it this change that we sought to focus on in our Seeds of Change Appeal.

This June we hosted a Mustard Zoom Extravaganza consisting of trivia, updates from the team, and an interview with one of our very own Lunchtime Group leaders which was the highlight of the evening. Even though we couldn’t meet in person to celebrate all things Mustard, it was wonderful to bring everyone together across the internet, even from the other side of the world!

This year we had five main goals being:

  1. A new Mustard Live Coordinator
  2. Continuing to resource and mentor our Lunchtime Groups
  3. A new video series on the COVID Pandemic
  4. Mustard Web App updates
  5. The development of our regional and interstate network

I am delighted to say that with the help of all our supporters we raised $41,013!

This is an incredible achievement in these difficult times, and it means we’ll be able to put funding towards all of our goals. Because of this, Mustard will be able to continue changing and adapting to these new circumstances, and keep supporting our lunchtime groups better than ever before. I’d like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who was a part of this year’s appeal, whether it be through donations, prayers, or words of encouragement. We at Mustard are incredibly grateful and can’t wait to share new stories of lives being transformed with you soon!

God bless,
