David Brake

Tribute to David Brake
Shared by Jan Livingstone
Just a few weeks ago now, I attended the Memorial Service for David Brake. David was a personal friend and I know that along with many others I will miss him greatly. The Memorial Service prepared for him was truly God honouring with some wonderful family tributes and a most inspiring sermon from Bishop Peter Dawson.

Many members would know Rita Brake, David’s wife, very well. She was the MU Vice President for Wollongong Region and is currently the Deanery President for the Southern Highlands. David and Rita to my mind, seemed to do most things together. In particular they ministered together and it is hard to think of one without the other.

They served as missionaries with CMS in Darwin then, after some years in Shellharbour, again served with CMS in Tanzania. In fact they were the missionaries we supported in the Parish of Bowral. It was delightful when some years ago they came to live in Bowral and commenced serving in the congregation. Both David and Rita enthusiastically led the Parish Missionary Committee for many years and between them were involved with several bible study and prayer groups as well as encouraging the monthly service at their retirement village, “Annesley”.

David and Rita regularly supported each other and their family; reading the scriptures and praying together and encouraging all of us to do the same. Their shared ministry has profoundly affected me and so many others. Our prayers are with Rita and her family as they grieve and we thank God for the life and witness of David Brake.
