7 Days and Counting!!!!

It’s been almost three months since I hopped on the plane to Perth. And now it’s only one more week in lecture phase. 7 day and counting until I leave for my first outreach location in India.!! Wow it’s gone so quick! These past weeks have been truly amazing, life changing, thought-provoking, the most challenging and fun time of my life!

My school have been working hard to sort out funds for the outreach phase by fundraising, including car wash and selling baked goods.  My school and I have been blown away by the insane generosity of family, friends and even people we hardly know. Thank you to everyone who have been praying over our finances and to those who supported me financially, it means so much. Through this, ALL of our finance have been paid in and flights are booked!

This is my family for the next 3 months and beyond. We leave for outreach in 7 days.

This past week was Missions Conference here at YWAM Perth. All day everyday was spent worshiping, praying, fellowshipping, dancing, and hearing from various speakers from YWAM. It was an incredible week with a focus on hearing God’s call on our life. Various speakers spoke about what it really means to be a missionary, what a true joy and privilege it is serving God. We also had some great Bible studies about Abram, discussed where the Gospel shows up in media, what true victory is and how easy it can be achieved with Christ, and so much more. We ended the Missions Conference having a dance party. So it was a pretty amazing, God filled week. A lot of revelations and decisions being made about the future. 

Thank you for reading my blog during the lecture phase. I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to blog while I’m overseas as I won’t have as much internet access. I don’t know if I will be able to post next week, so if I do not get the opportunity, please keep my team and me in your prayers.It's going to be so good but so intense as well We would really love and appreciate prayer for safe travels, team unity, and that we will see the Holy Spirit move through healings, salvations and breakthroughs.  

I am so grateful for every person who has reached out to me with their support since I’ve been here. It means the world to me and I love hearing news from home!

Also yesterday my Dad flew over just to come and visit me. I was beyond surprised! I'm so glad He's now able to come and visit me before I leave.

Thanks for reading! Until next time!

The day in YWAM (Vlog)

Exciting News!!!!

All our school finances came in Friday... Praise the Lord!! It was amazing seeing God provide the money in so many different ways. By praying and seeking His face we really started to see breakthrough. 

I just want to thank those who have been praying and supporting me along the way. Your donations are really going to bless people as you are sending me out to reach the nations. I'm so looking forward to reaching people with the love of Jesus and really seeing the way God is going to use me. 
Only 2 weeks to go and I'll be out of this country. Oh my goodness!!! It's gone extremely quickly!
India and Philippines here I come!!!!

Car wash Fundraiser we did even though it rained we still raised $200

This week I thought I would post up a video of a few of the things I get up to at YWAM (Well at least this week) for my friends and Family. So here it is!!!

Thanks for watching!!
God bless!

Walking in Authority

This week we had the topic spiritual warfare with Dean Shearman. He wrote a book on the same topic which I actually ended up reading for one of my book reports. Dean talked on such simple stuff but at the same time it was such a new revelation. I enjoyed it so much, being really challenged and reminded about how we do live in a world where we are getting attacked. Spiritual warfare is REAL.

Everything we do affects the spirit world. We need to submit to the Holy Spirit. Stand firm in our faith and in who God is. Put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-20) everyday. And walk in the authority that you have been given through the cross.

Top points from this week

  • You don’t have to become a nothing for God to become a something. He is already something, He is everything!” I found this point so true as so many times in life I find we lower ourselves or put ourselves down to bring God higher. 
  • We have all authority in the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • “Spirit power moves to and through humans according to their amount of yielding”
  • It’s your authority we have in prayer by the way we live”
  • “Quit putting yourself down because you’ve done stupid stuff in your past, that’s selfish behaviour. 
  • God created humans to reflect the image of God, and to rule over sin, Satan, and death.
  • Death and darkness are not real. Death is only the absence of life. Darkness is only the absence of light. Life and light are reality. Death and darkness are the absence of reality. Death comes from the enemy. Jesus is the resurrection and the life (John 11:25).

So how do we do warfare? 

  • Through Prayer and Relationships (with God and with others)
  • Repent quickly & continuously - don't let sin remain to give any opportunity to the devil. 
  • ALWAYS exercise faith
  • Forgive quickly & continuously towards others 
  • ALWAYS exercise humility.

My team is still in need of fiances so if you feel to donate please donate at:

3 more weeks to go.......

Photo update - 4 more weeks to go!!!

We had Evangelism as the topic last week, which was so inspiring and challenging at the same time.  We went out to the city and performed a few songs on that Thursday morning. It brought a crowd and through that we were able to talk to a bunch of school kids from high school who were in the city for an assignment. It was really cool talking to them about having a relationship with Jesus and that God is our Father, as they all came from a catholic school. We were able to just hang out with them, encourage them and pray for them. It was amazing watching God work in their lives and seeing how engaged they were when we talked about God and shared our testimony.

Last week was a pretty hectic week with all the band practices we had, getting ready for our concert Saturday night. It was a great night full of music, dance and just a whole lot of fun! The place was full of singing a laughter as we entertained a few hundred people.

Meet my outreach team!!! Minus the staff as they forgot that we were taking outreach team photos, but don't tell them I said that... haha..... We've been praying a lot about outreach last week and this week as we come into week 9 of lectures. Praying about India and the Philippines, for safety, for what we specifically need to pray for over the nations, also praying to see fiances come through as many on my team are still trusting God for money.

Top to bottom, left to right: Hunter, Sydney, ME, Sarah, Jonny, Alaina, Sophia, Laurine, Shanelle and Lexi. Our outreach leaders will be Heaseung and Josh.

Hello from my school!!! 

I love these guys! I'm so blessed to have such an awesome, crazy group who are all so passionate for God. 

Meet Sophia (Front) from California and Sierra from Colorado. Top is Hunter From the GREAT nation of Texas, so he would say! As a band we would meet a couple times a week and practice our songs. We had to do two covers and write one song about either God's love or how He sees us. We did a cover to Fix you mashed up with Stay with me and we did Ed Sheeran's song I see fire.  

Getting ready for concert in 228 was a little crazy. Luckily our mirror is big enough for us, well most the time...

My girls!! This photo was taken on the concert night, as you may notice we are dressed up. These girls are gifted and amazing singers and I was so blessed to have them as part of my band members.

Thanks for Reading my blog. I hope you enjoyed these photos!!! 
God bless!!

Please keep me in your prayers also!!!
