Back to Pemba…! :) – 30.09.13

South Africa

He was so faithful to really bless the girls & me with some amazing ministry opportunties (open doors in council, hospital, orphanage, school, as well as getting to minister to local farmers, ministers etc – More open doors than you can poke a stick at!!).

Perhaps my favourite, was connecting with a group of young people (ie around my age), and doing outreach on Saturday (healing and outreach ministry, with very similar heart to Iris – Ie stopping for the one, expecting Miracles & Loving people!!)!!

Roberston is also a beautiful place, and being in the midst of gorgeous scenery, etc, was beautiful!!

Loved it!!

Pemba

Back in Pemba now, I am enjoying a day off, at Pamela’s request (What a crazy blessing!! :)), and am enjoying some quiet time at their place!!

Has been great to re-connect with the staff, and also to meet some new ones!!

They rock!!

Praise Points:
An absolutely beautiful time in South Africa!!
God’s love being made so much more real, again, on this trip!!
He is so faithful.

Prayer Points:
Blood infection have had since Bush Bush to rack off.
That I would really be able to pray into & invest with all the capacity that God gives me for this school!
That we would all love like Jesus does!!

Lots of Love,

Simon

Love, Love, Love

So, it’s been a while,

But I thought, that considering the end of another 3 months of pouring out our lives for Jesus, what’s He done!?

Some of the stuff I have learnt, I have already detailed on this blog, so I won’t go back over old ground.

He taught me about Rest.

How do you find out about rest!?

You ask Him to show you how much He loves you, without you having had to do anything to earn it!!

The other thing I really feel as though He’s been teaching me,

Is that He loves me.

Haha – How good is that!? 🙂

In other news,

I’m on my way to South Africa (even as I write this to you!! :)),

Where I’ll be spending a few days in Cape Town, before heading out to the Breede Valley, and leading a small outreach there, at a new Iris Base, run by Johann & Marie, a beautiful couple I was privileged to spend time with at the start of the previous school!!

I love you all, and am forever grateful, for the fact that you have been willing to pour out your lives to Him, and taken an interest in what He is doing in my little life, and praying into that! May God reward you richly!!

Love you guys!!

Simon!

Praise Points:
Fully engaging, in a season of seeing 300 world changers, come into, receive, and go out from, a beautiful missions school in Mozambique
Being able to go to South Africa for some rest, good food, and hot showers in a cooler climate!!
Just having a great time!! 🙂

Prayer Points:
Health, and an injection of supernatural refreshment!!
Time with Him!
That the students would be wrecked forever by His love!

Love you all lots!!

10 Day Bush Outreach!

Hey all,

Just had a great time on 10 Day Bush Outreach. As you would expect, the blind saw, the deaf heard, and many received Jesus as Lord & Saviour.

Some potential highlights?!

– Crowd Surfing on Mozambican Kids (See below!! :)),
– Seeing a young guy get his hearing back after prayer a couple days ago (prayed for him where we were camping, and then later on he brought a young girl – also deaf, to get prayer – and God healed her too!! He is so good!! :)).
– Spending time with the team, and really getting to know them personally!!

I think that one of the definitive highlights for me, was spending time with, the Harvest School students!! It was great fun, and they really are a great bunch of people who are going to change the world for Jesus!!

Thank-you so much for praying!! He definitely went before us, and I think it was only his Grace that made it so chill, fun, fire-filled brilliance! Loved it!

Heading to South Africa in two weeks, where I’ll be having a break before leading an outreach in the Breede Valley at a farm owned by a beautiful couple who staffed the first five weeks of this school!

Am looking forward to chillaxing at the beach, playing guitar, and perhaps even reading some books before then!! Yes!! 🙂

Love you all lots.
