The 1st of February, 2022 in Australia marks the second anniversary of the day that four children; Sienna, Antony, Angelina Abdallah and Veronique Sakr lost their lives in horrific circumstances. Their story captured the hearts of our nation as we all witnessed parents Daniel and Leila Abdallah’s immense suffering and grief, and also the way they drew on their deep faith and conviction in Christ and sought to offer forgiveness in the midst of their pain and loss.
As a church community, we stand with them and take this opportunity to acknowledge others who have suffered in a similar way.
Daniel and Leila are marking this day by launching a national campaign ‘i4Give Day’ and ‘i4Give Week’ (1-7 February 2022), recognising the freedom found in forgiveness and encouraging all of us to search our hearts and find someone we can forgive on this day.
“ The more you practice the better you become at it and it allows you to live peacefully and to heal. Forgiveness is more for the forgiver than the forgiven.” – Danny & Leila Abdallah.
