Australia and back again...
September 2015 Update
We've been back for a week now from our visit to Townsville, Australia and we're still spinning from the trip! We had an incredible time at the conference as we reconnected with friends, were imparted to, had times of honoring our leaders and also being honored for our past service... it was so life-giving for where we are at in our forming stages of a new YWAM ministry.
As we literally revisited the streets of our past, it was a faith building time to remember the words God had spoken for us to move to California all those years ago. Above is a photo of us in front of a house that we were trying to purchase about 7 years ago... this is what the catalyst for us to ask God deep questions about our future which landed us in San Jose starting a YWAM center.
We have not kept it a secret that this last season has been one of the most challenging we've faced since being here. For me, it has been less about trusting God in the climate and circumstances of the place in which we live and has been more about if I REALLY trust Him when I am limited in my capacity and physical ability. I'd like to say that it has been as easy and shutting my eyes really tight and wishing my faith into existence, but it hasn't. I have had to let go of my control and let God reveal His faithfulness in my inability... NOT AN EASY THING TO DO. However, YOU have helped while we've been growing in faith and stepping out as He speaks.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We want to thank you for rallying when we've needed Kingdom family around us.
We feel encouraged and loved on in the times we've needed it most. Please know that we are so grateful for every prayer, every financial gift, every email and every word.
