Man of the match Thurston turned the game early in the second half, scoring a key try before laying on an inch-perfect kick for Dane Gagai to seal the result on Friday night in front of 20,241 fans at McDonald Jones Stadium.After Mel Meninga’s World team scored two tries in the shadows of half-time to make a game of it at 16-8, the Indigenous side found another gear.First, Parramatta speedster Bevan French, who looks set to build on his standout rookie year, put in a curling chip off the side of his boot which bounced up for Thurston.Thurston then outshone his younger teammate with an even better kick, putting the ball in between two defenders for Gagai.The Indigenous side had plenty of standouts including Gold Coast half Ash Taylor and Cronulla pair Andrew Fifita – who ran for 175m – and Wade Graham.The game was played in 33-degree heat with the likes of Blake Ferguson and Mitchell Moses coming off in the second half after the stifling conditions took their toll.Canberra are facing a nervous wait after skipper Jarrod Croker was taken from the field in the 50th minute with what appeared to be a left knee injury after having his leg pinned under him in a three-man tackle.He cried out in pain and slapped the turf in frustration before being taken up the tunnel with what is believed to be a medial ligament injury.The Indigenous All Stars shot out of the blocks to a 16-0 lead at the quarter-time break before the World side reeled them back in with a dubious four-pointer to David Mead and a Nene MacDonald try in the shadows of the break.However, the Indigenous side proved too strong in the second half.Greg Inglis provided the highlight of the game when he received a hand off from Fifita and went on a bulldozing run downfield, flattening three defenders including Tepai Moeroa.AAP
Prepared by CARP RomaniaWe organized the weekly HoonDokHae meeting in our Peace Center in Bucharest on March 3rd, 2017. This week we watched the movie “Have a little faith” which is based on the book with the same name written by Mitch Albom. The movie and the book presents how the author got back in touch with his faith. On this journey, he is helped by his Rabi form childhood and a former drugs dealer that found God and became a Christian pastor.“This is a story about believing in something and the two very different men who taught me how. It took a long time to write. It took me to churches and synagogues, to the suburbs and the city, to the “us” versus “them” that divides faith around the world. And finally, it took me home, to a sanctuary filled with people, to a casket made of pine, to a pulpit that was empty.” – Mitch AlbomAfter the movie, we sit together and everybody said what was his favorite part of the movie or answered to the question “what is your glory?”, a question that appeared in movie and refers to what is valuable in your life. Many people liked from the movie that people from different faiths (Jewish and Christian, in this case) could work together. Also, many of our gest said for them is important to try to do their best and family is an important aspect of their life.We hope that our guest got inspired from this movie and they will search more and will be more open to the relationship with Heavenly Parent.Thank you so much Heavenly Parent and True Parents!
