Boreham to Australia

The Boreham’s returned from their visit to England via South Africa and got back into their work at Mosgiel with renewed vigour.

In 1906 Frank was called to the city pulpit of the Hobart Baptist Tabernacle. They left from Bluff (near Invercargill) on the Waikare.

When the ship berthed the church officers all came on board and were surprised that their new pastor was able to greet them all by name.

Interestingly, the Waikare struck a rock in the waters of Fiordland, NZ, in 1909. All 226 passengers were saved.
