Everybody likes a good AgQuip. Whether you’re buying a tractor or just window shopping, it’s a much anticipated family day out.
One place you certainly won’t have to spend money is the Lifequip site.
Many came and stayed for hours. And why wouldn’t you.
An array of cafe tables with free coffee and home-made slices. Gentle entertainment from the Praise Puppets and the Salvo Country Band. Story time, doughnuts and sausage sandwiches.
The kids are off getting their faces painted by the Calrossy girls. There’s a sandpit, free books and helium balloons.
As Smarty and Ding climb a ladder and walk a narrow plank high above the crowd, Ian talks about what it’s like to put your trust in Jesus...
But star billing has got to go to the fabulous dog show.
Duri farmer Ian Page has taught his working kelpies to do some amazing things. As Smarty and Ding climb a ladder and walk a narrow plank high above the crowd, Ian talks about what it’s like to put your trust in Jesus and know that you are safe in His hands.
Then, to demonstrate his point, Smarty leaps off the platform into his master’s arms. Ian has also produced a booklet of dog stories which he gives away.
Lifequip exists to serve the agricultural community. It enjoys no grants or concessions, but relies on the co-operative efforts of the churches of Gunnedah and Tamworth and the donations from supporters.
There’s a different theme each year. This year’s message was a reminder that there is one thing more valuable than water and that is “living water”, echoing the words of Jesus in John 4: “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again... But the water I give will be a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
