Take a look at an excerpt from a recent letter from our director

“Whilst it is a great relief to know that this matter is resolved, the result has placed a heavy burden on the funds of AIM. There will be a requirement to sell our Humpty Doo property near Darwin to meet the commitment. In addition AIM has had to meet legal costs of $97,000 up to the time of writing.

For those genuinely injured and abused whilst at the Retta Dixon Home we must offer heartfelt sorrow and be prepared to do what we are able to help alleviate the hurt and continue to pray for their spiritual well-being. We need to be before the throne of grace seeking the will and blessing of the One who is totally just and righteous, yet full of grace and mercy.

The words of Jesus seem appropriate to our circumstances: In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus says: “If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.” (Matthew 5:40). In another place, speaking of the cost of discipleship Jesus says: “Suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Won’t he first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace. In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.” (Luke 14:31-33)

AIM can face the future with confidence knowing that this matter is finally put behind us. We are thankful for the prayers of the Lord’s people and ask that you continue with us in prayer and support as we look to the Lord for his guidance and direction into the future.”
