For the last few weeks, YWAM Canberra has operated on a smaller level due to it being summer and Christmas time. The kids and I have enjoyed our time and God grew our hearts through some trials.
During the last few weeks, you would find my kids and I doing some work duties around the base that consisted of caring for the floors, the front village, and the boutique. YWAMers love the boutique, it is a ...Read Full Post »

We have moved from the main guest corridor to a little demountable behind the YWAM base. It has three rooms, 1 bath, a kitchenette, and a living room. I have spent the last week changing out furniture with other furniture around the base to make it fit our needs as a family. I really want to spruce it up for the next family that will be coming in here after I leave just like the sweet family before me did. So I am praying about and need permission for possibly painting the walls, permission t...Read Full Post »

Let me talk to you about Uncle Christmas, I mean Uncle Chris. Don’t mind his new nickname, our youngest missionary would call him Uncle Christmas and It has just stuck. Chris bravery to trust God and join our team and take part in leading (assistant to Tim and Desiree) and training our little missionaries is inspiring. He really embraced the title of Uncle and Assistant leader. It was great to see God grow him in his leadership skills and other areas of his life. He gained much wisdom...Read Full Post »

All 13 of us woke up with work on our mind Monday morning. There was painting and gardening on the horizon and we spent time training the younger Missionaries. There were several trails that came and went that gave us five adults the privilege to lead these young ones down the path of righteousness. The verses from Deuteronomy 6:5-9 comes to mind. God tells us here to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your Strength. These comm...Read Full Post »

From the moment we left Calvary Chapel Oceanside till we arrived at YWAM Canberra it was about 24 hours of Travel. It is God’s Grace that it went so well. I think about how long it took for us to buy the tickets and how all the other tickets we tried to buy didn’t work out but these tickets for this flight were the ones that worked for us. In the past we had to take two planes to get to Sydney but this time...Read Full Post »

I love watching God work and leave HIS fingerprints on all HIS amazing events through history and present day. Bringing this current team together has been fascinating to say the least. I feel like a child about to open the biggest gift ever as I look at this team with 5 adults and 8 children. What does God have up HIS sleeve? I am patiently waiting on the edge of my seat....
The count down begins... 24Read Full Post »

God gave this little lady a burden for those that do not know the Lord, a burden to lay down her comforts so she can be a missionary. She has a holy confidence as she speaks to people about the love of Jesus. Compassion for the unsaved pours from her. Even after 30+ hours of travel, canceled flights, and other traveling issues, she still went to the fellow Aussies and talked to them about Jesus.
This little lady has inspired not only me but our whole Australia team t...Read Full Post »

There is a special emotion that comes over you when you serve the Lord on a short-term mission trip. It is however difficult to capture and articulate. God is stretching, teaching, and moving in the hearts of every member of our team and shaking us to the core and using this to mold our hearts to be more like HIM.
I have found it fascinating to see scripture come alive before my eyes in a whole new way. It is comical how often God does this to me, and why I am surprised. I know that sc...Read Full Post »

Our first work day started on Monday the 29th of April. The team was edger to get started. Tim Maciejewski and Miss Valerie started work at 7 am in the morning. Andrew Pryor jumped in a short time later to help. These were some go getters for our team because we were not expected to start working until after morning worship and tea time which starts at 9:00 am. Except for our cooks, they spend all day in the kitchen preparing nourishing food for us to stay strong and have endurance.
