week 6- I think

Hello everyone! I know it has been a while since my last update, so I thank you all for your patience. These last few weeks have been so awesome and challenging for me. I last left off on hearing the voice of God, which was amazing and I learned so much on communication and how it works between not only other people but with God. We then went on with lectures on evangelism which were very inspiring and encouraging. We so often put sharing our faith into a box and we tend to use formulas and techniques to reach people which aren’t necessarily bad, but are not always the most effective way to share Jesus with someone. We only had a few days of these lectures because we then traveled to Airlie Beach which is 16 hours north of our base. The purpose of the trip was to minister to “schoolies” which are graduation high schoolers that party for a week straight. This is a thing that happens all across Australia.
Our team set up a large tent and we provided a safe place where they could come and hang out and engage in meaningful conversation while enjoying chai tea and slushies. My specific team was mainly involved in prayer and intercession which was such a blessing. The Lord showed me so much during those times. Our group also did a few of our dances while there which was very challenging due to the amount of spiritual warfare going on. Anyways, when we came back, our lecture was on relationships. These lectures were so eye opening and helpful to all of us. The speaker (on DVD) not only spoke on relationships of the opposite sex, but how to relate in general and how the whole of christianity is based on being a good relator. I am still processing this information, but I have also put it into practice with some of my fellow brothers and sisters which has been such a blessing. The Lord has been showing me so much about Himself, life and others and I am so excited for what this week has to offer. Thank you so much for your prayers. Oh, and please be praying for my team that is going to India, there are a few people that don’t have their funds to go. I would also like prayer for perseverance in dance. We are dancing a lot, and I don’t want to miss the heart of dancing, so any prayers would be much appreciated. Thank you so much again!
