Peter and Belinda Letchford live in Kununurra - and though that is in Western Australia - there is a attitude of the North being an identity of its own - the Top End! And with that in mind we would like to support and encourage families; families who are often isolated either by location or just simply a long way from family.

Contact Mums for the NT
The Contact Mums Ministry is a volunteer network of Christian mums available to encourage and support families who desire to implement the principles set forth in the Growing Families International parenting curricula from Preparation for Parenting through the Reaching the Heart of Your Teens, as well as the On Becoming series of books. A Contact Mum understands and experiences the same challenges that come from the responsibility of being a mum and the consistency that biblical training of our children requires.
We have Contact Mums in the following areas and specialised experiences:
Kununurra - Belinda - top_end_leaders[at]gfi.org.au - Harvest all ages up to 18+ and indigenous families and sick or disabled children
Darwin - Janie - Ph: 0402 233 670 - Harvest all ages up to 18 +
To be put in touch with a Contact Mum for other enquiries, please email contact_mums[at]gfi.org.au.
