There are some things that I NEVER thought I would do in my lifetime.
1: be a missionary
2: live in a foreign country
3: work with young people
… and I definitely never imagined that I would pioneer a missionary training base in the Kimberley region of Western Australia…. but God is so good to me that He has called me into this adventure with Him!
THIS IS A BIG YEAR!
Story Time from Papua!
I spent the month of August in the island of Papua, Indonesia. I was part of a Discipleship Training School team where we were leading the students on a missions outreach to the island. And I just wanted to share a story of God’s faithfulness and of something miraculous that happened while I was there!
Hello everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I’ve written a blog post here. I am going to start writing more regularly now!
Recently I got back from 3 weeks in Papua, Indonesia and 9 weeks in the Aboriginal communities in North Western Australia. There are so many funny and amazing stories from my time there, from getting sick during travel to eating dog meat for the first time to God healing hearts and physical bodies… It was incredible and I will be writing a brief overview of that time so start looking out for that!
“Be available” is the what God spoke to me when i first joined staff for ywam perth in March.
And now he is reminding me of it again. Working with Aboriginal people requires a great amount of flexibility and willingness to learn and change so this has been a major challenge and privilege for me over the last two weeks!
What makes up the characteristics of any society? Its individuals! If individuals in a society value family, then the society as a whole tends to value families as well. The choices of individuals dictate the characteristics and values of the society they are in.
