Jesus (Alan John Miller) who became a director of the company in the last part of this financial year. Besides his moral and spiritual development, Jesus gifts to the company his expertise in areas of engineering, electronics, information technology and network systems, project management, and teaching. He is generous and passionate in his leadership and in his contributions. So far, his efforts more than any other individual have kept God’s Way Ltd operational. He is instrumental in the planning and implementation of every project within the organisation. No job is too big or small for Jesus. His attitude and emotions reflect the company constitution and as such he is the company’s greatest friend and asset.

Eloisa Sparks (formerly Eloisa Lytton-Hitchins) who, acts as secretary, treasurer and operations manager for the company. Eloisa demonstrates the benefits of living in harmony with God’s Way and provides an example to anyone who interacts with the company, as volunteer, probation volunteer, tradesperson or event participant, of what it means to uphold the company constitution. She manages environment and infrastructure projects and deals with ordering and equipment trials for the company. God’s Way Ltd benefits from her physical efforts and her lived example.

We also extend our ongoing thanks to Catherine Spence (director from September 2016 to June 2022) for her continuing support in the form of monetary donations, loan of equipment and machinery and belief in the company objectives. Catherine moved away from the local area this year and while she is no longer involved in the day to day operations of God’s Way Ltd she remains a keen supporter of the organisation’s vision and attends regular members meetings.

Volunteers & Probation Volunteers

Volunteers and probation volunteers mainly provide assistance in the areas of invasive species management. Most participants still require close management due to their resistance to following direction and remaining humble and loving throughout activity days. However God’s Way Ltd and the board is very grateful for their physical efforts.

We extend particular thanks to those specific volunteers and probation volunteers who demonstrate dedication to attend consistently, who take time to learn principles involved in jobs and who take responsibility for set up and clean up on volunteer days.

Special thanks is given to Kate Eckersall, volunteer, who has worked under Jesus direction this year to program various applications which will improve efficiency and consistency with data storage within the organisation. She is also working under Jesus to redesign the God’s Way Ltd website.

Her efforts are invaluable as she is able to complete some tasks that would otherwise be left solely to Jesus to undertake.

Kate, December 2021.

Activity Report: April & May, 2020

Welcome to the Activity Report for April & May 2020.

God’s Way Ltd volunteers continue to chip away at various projects. It is currently a small team doing the physical activities in Wilkesdale Queensland, with five members volunteering full time, and two casual volunteers assisting for a day or two each work week. God’s Way Ltd also has overseas volunteers who contribute time to Environmental Branch projects, currently they are doing research for the seed database, and interstate volunteers (in Australia) who collect, sort and send seed via mail for the terrace project.

While the team is currently still small, the directors have faith that continuing to work in harmony with God’s Way and coming to fully embrace the company constitution ourselves, will benefit the organisation exponentially as time goes on. We believe that in future the company adherence with God’s Laws will attract many new volunteers to the organisation who are passionate about completing the many projects God’s Way Ltd would like to create, develop and implement. Thus the directors have been focusing on volunteer attitudes, and the desire for those involved in the organisation to bring their lives into harmony with the Organisations Constitution and God’s Way. These qualities are essential for the future success of the organisation and in order that projects run smoothly. With fewer volunteers to manage the directors and founding members have prioritised projects that will support the organisation in the future e.g. water management systems, environmental and construction projects.

During April and May God’s Way Ltd has been engaged in the following projects.

Activity Report: February & March, 2020

Greetings and welcome to the God’s Way Ltd Activity Report covering work periods during February and March 2020.

As usual there has been a hive of activity and what is shared in this post is only a brief overview of the project-based activities during these work periods. Please keep in mind that there are many other things going on simultaneously, such as personal interactions, discoveries, experiences and feedback, which are not always reported but often take up the time of the Founding Members and Directors, and are essential to upholding love and the Company Constitution.

Activity Report: Work Period Beginning January 13, 2020

Hello & welcome to the God’s Way Ltd Activity Report for the work period January 13th – 24th, 2020.

Since mid-2019, God’s Way organisation has worked on a fortnightly rotation work schedule. This means that most “full time” volunteers work on God’s Way projects for 12 days per month and have 16 days for spiritual development and working on personal projects. The directors and founding members often work longer than the 12 days, depending on what projects are happening at the time. And there are more casual volunteers who give their time for one or two days a week or fortnight.

While this arrangement has worked reasonably well, the directors have recently decided to trial a new work schedule for company volunteers commencing in March 2020.

Scientific Research: Compelling Evidence in Support of Plant-Based Diet

A scientific journal article published in 2018 contained compelling scientific evidence that eating a plant-based diet, which excludes meat and animal products, is better for the environment.

The study, Reducing food’s environmental impacts through producers and consumers, conducted by Joesph Poore & Thomas Nemecek, gathered data on the environmental impacts of food produced on farms (primary producers of meat, fish, grains, fruit & vegetables), processors (food manufacturers and processing plants), food packaging plants and retailers.

Research Article Abstract

“Food’s environmental impacts are created by millions of diverse producers. To identify solutions that are effective under this heterogeneity, we consolidated data covering five environmental indicators; 38,700 farms; and 1600 processors, packaging types, and retailers. Impact can vary 50-fold among producers of the same product, creating substantial mitigation opportunities. However, mitigation is complicated by trade-offs, multiple ways for producers to achieve low impacts, and interactions throughout the supply chain. Producers have limits on how far they can reduce impacts. Most strikingly, impacts of the lowest-impact animal products typically exceed those of vegetable substitutes, providing new evidence for the importance of dietary change. Cumulatively, our findings support an approach where producers monitor their own impacts, flexibly meet environmental targets by choosing from multiple practices, and communicate their impacts to consumers.”
