Well-Being Australia chairman Mark and Delma Tronson headed off to the Whitsundays on Sunday 28th November and returned to Tweed Heads, December 3.
He was the Australian cricket team chaplain for 17 years and in 2001 established Life After Cricket which produces the Retired Australian Cricketers Bi-Annual Newsletter which is published 30 November and 30 March each year.
He has developed athlete respite facilities sponsored by Mr Basil Sellers AM, businessman and philanthropist, in both Moruya and Tweed Heads.
On CTT's Mark Tronson speaks to community groups on his cricket ministry and as the Footplate Padre, a ministry to railway people. He writes the monthly Footplate Padre article for the On Track railway e-magazine.
The Midge Point part of the CTT was hosted by Gary Poole who has a property on this southern mainland area of the Whitsundays, not that far from the golfing resort, Laguna Quays.
Gary Poole has a light aircraft airstrip and has been in negotiations with Mackay Council for sub-divisions of his significant land holdings which has received 'some pleasing approvals'.
The Midge Point community is small, while the surrounding areas to Bloomsbury to the south and Prosperine to the north, have many small acreage holdings.
Well-Being Australia has been discussing Christian ministry in various forms in the Midge Point area with Gary Poole for eight years as part of his developments.
Mark and Delma Tronson then headed to Mackay on December 1 and 2 where they had three meetings. It rained the entire time they were away, everything was green and lush.
2010 has been a busy year for Well-Being Australia's Country Town Tours (CTT) with trips to Western Australia (May), Northern Territory (June), Victoria (August), Tasmania (September) and then Midge Point and Mackay in Queensland (November-December).
