A personal history of MCF-A, book purchase available
About the book
From the author: I joined the OCU within three years of its commencement, so it is likely that only I am left to recount the early years … I have tried to deal fairly with the difficult issues which I felt needed to be covered so that lessons might be learnt and similar situations avoided. I found great encouragement as I looked back over the past 62 years seeing what God has done through the OCU/MCF and I pray that the reader too will tell the next generation the
praiseworthy deeds of the Lord. The title is meant to reflect the desire of MCF members to be faithful followers of Christ while providing faithful service to the nation.
From the foreword by MAJGEN Sue Graham, current MCF-A Patron:
Few know the history of MCF-A as well as Russell Bielenberg, who together with his wife Helen, have been faithful stalwarts from the early days of the Officers’ Christian Union (OCU) … This is a comprehensive personal account which through the stories recounted shows God’s continued faithfulness to this ministry. From small beginnings, lean membership periods, financial challenges and, at times, personal tensions, the ministry has grown and continues to support members to faithfully ‘Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have’ (1 Peter 3:15).
