Walking home … to heaven

Stanthorpe has lost one of its finest sons. On Sunday morning of the 9th of October 2016, Andrew Sav, aged 54, completed his journey home.

O.M. is an interdenominational organisation which brings aid and Christian ministry and care to developing world countries via ocean going ships equipped to bring help and hope to all.
