Saturday, LOGOS held a quiz evening at the Logos Centre to raise money for the Ranong Mission.
About 250 people attended.
As well as being a lot of fun the event raised about $5,000.
Frank Bird, home in New Zealand from the mission in Ranong, southern Thailand, gave a moving presentation of the work that Marists and their supporters do.
In January 2019 Tayla Faaofo will join another LOGOS member, volunteering teaching at the Marist Asia Mission in Ranong.
The fundraiser raised awareness about the Marist Asia Foundation as well as funds to support Tayla’s volunteer costs.
LOGOS leader, Jen Martinez wrote: “We were overwhelmed by the support from Marist groups, families and the wider community”.
Frank Bird returns shortly to the Marist Asia Foundation work in Ranong.
