Newcastle life so far...
After waiting ages(!) for my visa, it was finally approved! I arrived in Australia on February 23, 2009; therefore I have been here a little bit more than a month! This month has just zipped on by! After arriving I had about a week to adjust to being back to the YWAM base before having to leave again! Yep, shortly after getting back I found myself packing once more, this time I was only packing for two weeks and I was only going to another YWAM base about 15-20 min away. Now you may be wondering why after being back for a week I was already leaving for another YWAM base, well I can assure you its not because I don’t like this one that I am serving at. It is because I was doing a two-week course, to be more specific the course is called Certificate IV in Training & Assessment (Phase 1). As described by the course leader: Certificate IV in Training & Assessment (Phase 1) is a valuable time of practical equipping for all staff in whatever area they are working in on a base. For school staff I firmly believe that you will come out of this course better equipped to serve the students entrusted to your care, and more confident in your role within a school. By the end of the course I was super excited to get back and really start working on the upcoming DTS that I am staffing! As of right now the school is starting in just under two weeks! We have four students, which is a pretty small school, but I trust God’s working. God is teaching me so many things, I am just trying to take it all in and apply it to my life, its amazing! Oh, before I forget you should totally check out this video on youtube.com its called “Finger of God” it’s a ten part series and is simply awesome! Anyway that is all I have been up to this past month, I would love to hear from you, please contact me!
