    GIVING A FRIENDLY CLONCURRY WELCOME: Mayor Andrew Daniels meets Silvia and Mario Garcia. Mr Garcia is an Agronomist Engineer from Mexico who spoke of his faith at the Mayor’s Community Breakfast on Tuesday.

    But in doing so, he compared the current conditions of the Queensland Outback to a former three-year drought in his home country.

    “It was hard,” Mr Garcia said. “A friend of mine committed suicide because he lost everything.”

    Mr Garcia is a chairman of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International, and said he believed God could bring rain to the North West region.

    He then asked attendees to pray for it.

    “I want to pray for the rain.

    “If you help me and pray for the rain I know something is going to happen.

    “You are going to remember this crazy Mexican.”

    Mr Garcia also highlighted the importance of being with family.

    Years ago, he was more interested in money and ambition, but lost the respect of his children because he did not give them his time and interest.

    “The richness of the city is the family.

    “The future of the city is the family,” he said.

    Cloncurry Mayor Andrew Daniels sympathised with Mr Garcia’s friend who saw no way out of his predicament during drought.

    “A man suffers more than anybody if his child is hungry,” Cr Daniels said.

    Cr Daniels said he was not bothered by the religious theme of the event.

    “If we are praying for rain and praying for the community, I am happy,” he said.
