So if you read my last blog you would know that I am back in Australia, it all happened so fast! I got my visa granted friday morning, sorted out my flights friday afternoon and was on an airplane back to Australia saturday night!
It has been awesome being back and basically just jumping right into things again as if I was never gone. So aside from catching up on three weeks worth of lectures (topics include: Holy Spirit, World View, Communications), this week's topic was Communications and our very own school leader Fred af Petersens was the speaker! We talked a lot about communicating the gospel and the different aspects that go into actually making that happen. Some of the key points I learned were; thinking about the structure of your message as a whole (intro, body, conclusion) and also finding things that other people can relate to and connect with.
As far as life here on the YWAM base, we have been cranking away with the construction down at the Youth Street warehouse. We recently had a team from Maui, Hawaii come and serve in the warehouse. The performance room/ future auditorium is almost complete! I definitely want to put up some photos so keep your eye out for them in the next week or so.
We the SOE (school of evangelism) are coming to a mark of about two weeks till outreach! We are going to South America and will be doing ministry focused around youth (12-17)...God has already been directing us in some of the many things we will be doing, its amazing! Some of the things we heard from God to do are: building foundations- spiritual, physical, possibly coffee house nights, prison ministry, and we will bring lots of laughter.
Please continue praying for our finances, as a team we are still needing to see quite a bit of money come in, I still need about $7,000 AUD, please pray about partnering with me to see these funds come in!!!
Heaps O' Love!
P.S. I have posted some new pics so check 'em out!
