THE VISION 

To see waves of missionaries, evangelists, intercessors and resources flowing out to encourage and empower our rural churches.

We spent the majority of our time working with Generosity church. The pastors have a vision to open up a community space that is a safe place for people to gather. So for the week, we did heaps of work projects around their church & community centre—e.g. painting, flooring, treating wood, etc. We also spent time helping out the Baptist Church with small service projects in the community. We had a blast building relationships with our contacts and their teams. They expressed that YWAM has been a great encouragement to them. Please continue to pray with these amazing local leaders that the churches' influence in town will grow!

We mainly worked with Liberty Church. We did a variety of different things including: digging up new walk paths, helping to lay a cement form, working at the Food Care, different forms of children’s ministry, etc. One highlight from the week was an event that we facilitated at the Baptist Church called Crossroads, which is where a community of people with varying disabilities get together to fellowship and hang out. During the evening, Marcus led a time of worship in which a lot of people felt led to sing and speak out. One of the attendees felt led to share about some grief she had in her life and two members from our team immediately jumped up to pray for her. It ended up being a really impactful time for her and the rest of us. We’re hoping to see and be led by the Lord into more intentional, relational moments with people as we continue to serve in the coming weeks.

Our ministry this week was working mainly with Riverside Church, helping them with renovations. We also got opportunities to do worship for our accommodation hosts, help around the pastors’ home, & be a part of three youth/young adult groups on Friday night. A cool testimony from this week was that we two ex-YWAMers. One of these is a woman who did her DTS in Kona in 1977–her work duty was helping to clear the grounds for what is now the Kona base. The other was a younger guy who did his DTS in Nigeria in 2008 & hasn’t met any other YWAMers since he moved to Oz—yesterday was his first Sunday back in church & we just happened to be there! Continue praying for Dubbo & that the enthusiasm the people there have for Jesus will spread.
