I’ve now been here a month and I would say I am more than settled in! Friends, the work that God is doing in YWAM Townsville is amazing. They are currently moving from their old base to a new one, which is located in the middle of the city! As the new properties are up for sale, we were lacking accommodation on base so we are living on their Medical Ship! The ship is an old Japanese fishing boat turned into a medical relief ship. It brings medical information and resources to Papua New Guinea (PNG). It ranges from basic dental work to optical surgeries and much more. The people here who have a heart for PNG share stories of incredible miracles. When I learned of this, God woke a part of my heart just for PNG and specifically the children there.
Which brings me to my outreach location being revealed; my outreach team has been chosen to go to the Gold Coast of Australia for a few weeks then to PAPUA NEW GUINEA for approximately 7 weeks! I could not be more excited for what God has in store for me. Since being here God has done wonders in my life; freeing me from things that have had a strong hold on my life. I do not know how well you know me or about my life but, as the weeks go on I update my father (who is not Christian) about what God has brought up and helped me through as well as what I have learned. I am happy to report, slowly my father is starting to see the happiness and breakthrough my relationship with God is giving me. It is but a seed of something in him but with every question he asks and every story I share he opens up a little more. Friends, please help me in praying for him! My journey here is saving not only my life but my father’s as well!
I cannot express my gratitude for all the prayer and support that you all have given me. My appreciation for the family (you all) God has blessed me with in Regina is of immense proportions! My final report back to you is this… GOD IS AMAZING. Feel free to email me questions and follow my blog to hear about my adventure Down Under!
