Interview: Rita Karraz

Rita Karraz is Youth Services Manager with Wesley KickStart, a unique transitional program that supports young people from foster care into independent living and adulthood.

Rev Keith Garner speaks to Rita about this empowering program, that provides young people access to affordable housing with ongoing support to achieve their goals in an encouraging environment.

Rita says the transition to adult life can be daunting for many, but it gets easier with the right help.

“[As you] become an adult, there's a lot of skills that you have to learn along the way. And for young people in foster care some of those skills just get missed. They can get missed for all sorts of different reasons. And our program just makes sure that we can just check that they've learned all the skills that they need to learn.”

Guest performer: Maybelle Galuvao

Maybelle Galuvao is a former contestant on The Voice Australia, and in today’s episode, she performs a joyful and inspiring rendition of the song ’Say The Word’.

Keith's message: Growing

In the lead up to Easter, Rev Keith Garner continues working his way through the book of Luke. In today’s message, he reveals how Jesus responded in the face of increasing opposition from the religious and political leaders of his day.

Rev Garner says for those who follow Jesus, we shouldn’t be surprised when we face opposition, but should see it as an opportunity to grow.

“If we are to experience the life of God, then we need to be prepared to face up to the challenges that will come to us.”
