Hey!!

Almost now with mixed feelings… My last post!!

Just wanted to say thank-you!

From the bottom of my heart, for your love, support, and just Generally being Interested, in my life over the past 7 months!!

So grateful to God, for all He has done, for the time He has afforded me to seek His face, Serve in a beautfiul country with laid down lovers, all eager to pursue Him no matter what the cost… Kind of reminds me of some of you!! 😉

Much Love to each and every single one of you!!

Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is!!

Having a great time in Pemba, Looking forward to being home soon.

Led a couple outreaches lately, and am looking at doing another one next week, potentially with Heidi, which, from what I have heard, can be kind of hectic – so any prayers – Appreciated!!

Has been a great season, of getting Vision of what is to come, and also the excitement of coming home in a couple weeks!!

Praise Points
Beautiful time of Rest Yesterday!
Incredible opportunity to be here, and exciting to look to what the future holds too!!

Shack on Outreach

Outreach last weekend!

Got to go on outreach again!

Yep – Supporting the wonderful Kristina Farmer, and the Pink colour group, and a bunch of visitors, went for one of the most confronting (ie in terms of my own heart, the gospel etc), outreaches this year!!

Met a beautiful older man, and realised that loving him, without the Gospel, is not what someone in their later years needs to hear!

Either way – Hoping to learn from this mistake, and am pressing in to know the Father’s heart even more!

Got further challenged by two young brothers, deaf & mute, – one experienced healing, and one not so much! Real people, real lives, and real situations – In your face!!

God is definitely doing some Heart Surgery.

Praying that it continues!!

Much Love!!

Simon

Joy is a Weapon.

Amazing time in the bush. At least two people that I heard of were healed of being deaf (one in one ear, one in both). (Also a couple guys turning to Jesus and asking Him to set them free of addiction, as well as probably countless healings, salvations etc)!

It was radical good fun, and seeing Pastor Nazarene (local Mozambican leader) preach with such fire, and demonstrate such joy in his character was a real inspiration for me!!

Seeing the team today, and as some recounted weeping what God had done in their hearts, was by far one of the most exciting, and encouraging things!!

Just freaks me out that people could not want to know how good He is!!

Thanks also for rocking the prayer. Absolutely seemless interaction with the Mozambicans! Saw a number of people healed and saved, His compassion in action and so on!! Also just felt super carried by Him, so thanks for prayers!!

Learning!?

Realised how last school I learnt to be organised, not due to strict guidelines etc, but from being offered complete freedom to do things as I saw fit, and that within timelines that ultimately were not as tight (Africa Time), as at home!!

Not sure if that translates, but am pretty much saying that have learnt a lot about being organised, simply by being in an environment that offers me the opportunity, to succeed or fail, as I see fit!

Also been learning that relationships are often the lifeblood through which God pours His love!!

Have made some beautiful friends here, that am going to miss heaps when I leave in 6 weeks or so!!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!!

Much Much Love,

Simon

Week 4 – Harvest School 19!

Hey all,

Having a great time on Harvest School 19, and am finding it a lot smoother than 18 (ie after learning some of the ins & outs of staffing!!).

Blood infection is unfortunately still around, but thankfully, due to some good doctoring, I am anticipating to be dealt with soon (ie on a stronger round of antibiotics, and some quality bandage!!).

Thanks again for your friendship, & support!

Looking forward to being in touch / seeing you in December!

Outreach this weekend – Leading a team of 16 or so Harvest School students, and 10 or so Mozambican Bible students into the Bush Bush for another freakin legit time of seeing the Love of God made manifest in this country, with signs wonders miracles and salvations following!! 🙂

More intimacy.

Thanks again for being incredible!!
