I am trusting the Lord to fill me with his spirit, to the measure of overflow.

Sounds the call to come together...

When Step Up becomes more than a dance movie

Posted by on

I remember the hopeful goodbye we said to our team leader as we left Malaysia, on our way to a 6 week Australian visit. He had been denied his Australian visa, and therefore he could not enter with us. Global was sending a "temporary" leader to help us start our work on the sheep farms, however after his visit, we were sure that our leader would rejoin the group and lead us further, as planned.

However, as with most things, God's plan was not our plans. Louw never received his visa, and before I knew it, Reinhardt's time with us had come to an end.

I woke up on Thursday morning with a soft whisper in my ear "it's time to step up". The Lord was prompting me to step into my role as leader, which resulted in my head being pushed further under my pillow. I didn't want to take up the responsibility, and knew that past failures were a constant reminder of reasons why I shouldn't take up the position.

Over the following few days, I was surrounded by God's voice, calling and affirming me in the role:

- My best friend from home left me a voice note, assuring me of the equipping that God had already done in me prior to this year.

- A prophetess came to me and said that when I walked through the door, she knew I was a leader. And that I carried a mantel of authority around my neck.

- Our host's daughter came to my bed that evening, telling me that she can see that I'm a leader and that The Lord will help me.

- I received messages from friends and parents who were praying for me regarding leadership.

- At a youth meeting, I heard friends say that they can see me as the leader.

The point is, I couldn't turn left or right without The Lords affirmation around me.

Looking back, I can not believe how privileged I was to lead this team. I loved organizing things, grouping individuals, communicating between the host and the team, making arrangements, praying, encouraging, etc.

The blessing of stepping up instead of stepping away was wonderful. It is about a month later and we are now in Bali. The team structure is back to usual, though I keep the special time in Australia close to my heart. It feels like a "cherry on the cake" type of experience. Praise God for his faithfulness!

Can I call you Raavi?

Posted by on
Israel

We decided to spend a few days in Israel to rest and fill our tanks. We spent 5 days in Jerusalem, Israel. There's a SA missionary who opened her house to us. Her house is a permanent house of prayer and people come and go to pray for the peace of Jerusalem there. She took us to many places in Jerusalem to see where Jesus walked, was crucified, his tomb, where the outpouring of the holy spirit happened in the upper room, mount zion, the mount of olives etc. This was phenomenal, as you can imagine. We also learned from her what is looks like to be an intercessor and experienced the dwelling of the spirit in her home.

Bethlehem, Palestine

Entering into Palestinian territory was scary at first. We were greeted with burning tyres, people wearing gas masks and staring at us with intimidation. But God protected us and brought us safely to a monastery where we served nuns for a week. They are building a garden and therefore we were weeding, cleaning, planting and sorting stuff in their garden.

We had a day off where we felt God lead us to go to the Bethlehem Bible College. There we received a fascinating talk on the history of the Israeli and Palestinian conflict. As well as how God planted that Bible college in the midst of all the religious and political tension. We are praying for God to help solve the conflict as well as to keep sending the workers.

Thereafter, we split into teams and we walked through the Palestinian refugee camps with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We were welcomed into the homes of refugees and again shared stories and learned about the effects of the conflict. It's an intimidating, harsh climate, but we have learned that through these conversations, God is shining his light and bringing hope.

We also learned that the great Apologist, Raavi Zacharious was giving a free talk at the Bible College. I have been a big fan and this couldn't wait to see him.  Therefore we enjoyed a wonderful night listening to his rich insights.

We hiked up to the sea of Galilee where we trusted the holy spirit to guide us in how to get there. Along the way, he also provided food for us. We camped in a few places next to the sea and then made our way to the airport.

Mercy, mercy, mercy

Posted by on

I've recently felt lead to dive into the theme of mercy and to discover what it looks like. For in the passage of the Good Samaritan, a man is shown that his neighbor is the person who he has mercy on. The one that he helps physically, financially and emotionally after being beet up by robbers.
