Settling in to the base after the team has left

Posted by modayjo on November 18, 2018 at 6:55 AM

19 days ago the October team left while the kids and I stayed here at YWAM Canberra. We have been adjusting to our new way of life and still getting the hang of things around the base. Communal living is adventurous and a learning curve. We share our kitchen with everyone on the base and 2 of my children are not allowed in it because of their age. Working around that has been a challenge at times but doable and really not a big deal. We also share bathrooms with the rest of the base too.

The YWAMers all have responsibilities to help keep the base running smoothly and it creates a team atmosphere. This team effort has been a great example to my children because as mission builders we too have to help with the daily responsibilities. The base consists of YWAMers, mission builders, and borders. Some of the borders like to help with the base too.

The kids and I have been staying in 3 separate rooms downstairs in the main corridor. We will be moving into a new home this week and will be able to have our own kitchen and bathroom. We have also been given permission to use the preschool for us to homeschool in. All of this has been way more than we anticipated and we feel so spoiled and thankful.

Prayer request:

*Pray for my children, for when they miss their daddy who is serving in California on Camp Pendleton as a U.S. Marine.

*Pray for us to be able to get a bus pass and that I have more confidence in driving.

*Pray for funds to come in for us to continue to live here and buy food for my family.

*Pray for our hearts to have good soil so we can learn everything that God wants to teach us.

*Pray for us to have wisdom and clear direction from God on what he wants us to do.
