Incredible times in Australia

Ladies meeting at Taigum Gardens In May I had the privilege of sharing a PowerPoint presentation of the orphans we support in Latvia and Ukraine, with the ladies’ prayer group led by Beth Irvine & Olwyn Westbrook at Taigum Gardens, Brisbane. What a powerhouse for God these ladies are, who are committed to praying for God’s servants and His work. I believe that Mary Queen of Scots would have said regarding these ladies, what she said about John Knox the great Scottish reformer. “I fear the prayers of John Knox more than I fear the armies my cousin, Elizabeth of [...]

Amazing Ministry in Western Australia ~ August 2018

2018-10-17T11:49:59+11:00October 15th, 2018|

In August, I had an amazingly fruitful week of ministry in the Wagin/Narrogin farming region of Western Australia. Arriving on Wednesday evening I had an amazing meeting to 120 students of the Narrogin Agricultural High School (near Wagin) arranged by the School Chaplain. I had supper with the students and staff and shared one of my seminars “Don’t Quit when life gets tough” – with a visual PPT presentation. There was a wonderful response. The next day I was at the Dumbleyung Primary School (near Wagin) where I showed them a Power- Point presentation of the Orphans of Eastern Europe, [...]

Special Ministry in Australia

2018-08-02T08:45:28+10:00August 4th, 2018|

In May I enjoyed a weekend of amazing ministry at Peace International Church, Rockhampton Qld, where there were two fabulous youth rallies and a Sunday morning church service. This was a "déjà vu time" of ministry, with a bit of time lapse activity. In 1989 - 1990 I was privileged to speak at church and youth camps in Rockhampton. So many teenagers came to the Lord in that ministry. Those young people are now adults in the church, and I was now ministering to and counselling their teenagers. There was one big man in the church, came up and reminded [...]

Fruitful Ministry in Australia

2018-05-02T10:05:54+10:00May 2nd, 2018|

On the Sunday after arriving back in Australia I had the joy of ministering to a very alive congregation at the LiveCity Church in Redbank Plains QLD. They see people come to the Lord almost every Sunday, and it was no different this Sunday, where I taught them how to lead their friends and colleagues to Christ. In that service 3 people came to Lord. It was again a great privilege to minister to the wonderful Salvation Church in Pymble, Sydney, where the worship was out- standing. This noble congregation responded so well to the theme of "Recover & Rise Up [...]

Paralympics 2000. Part 3

2016-10-14T11:49:36+11:00August 27th, 2000|

One morning, as I entered the Village, I realised I hadn't met anyone from Lebanon. I prayed a quick prayer, "Lord please lead me to the Lebanese team." Then in the day's busyness I forgot about it. Later having lunch I decided to fly the desert, which I normally didn't do. I then sat in a different place to enjoy the desert. I noticed an attractive middle-aged lady sitting about three tables away. She smiled. picked up her food and came and sat at my table. I thought, "Dear Lord, I hope this is not a 'pick up'. I can [...]

Paralympics 2000. Part 2

2015-10-07T16:52:50+11:00August 26th, 2000|

Riding the shuttle bus one day, I met the Kenyan team. They asked me to help them off with their wheelchairs. I ended up wheeling them to the dining hall. Someone took this photo which they all asked for. They ended up committing their lives to Jesus. One day I watched an athlete trying out a new artificial running leg. He was running very fast. Then I noticed he had only one arm as well. You know, your whole centre of gravity and balance changes with a leg and an arm missing. His coach told me that before he lost [...]
