After many sad goodbyes, frantic packing, 42+ travel hours and 5 airports...we have made it!! We finally landed in Copenhagen on Friday afternoon and are so happy to be on European soil (It's only about 30 degrees colder than what we left in Brisbane). Thanks to everyone who has supported us through this crazy process, it has been the biggest faith journey we've ever embarked on but we have seen God's faithfulness at work like never before. Even though we are in need of many more breakthroughs, so many things have fallen into place to the whole move possible. Often, when you step out on a word from God and start to walk in the faith and miracle zone it can be quite intimidating but Isaiah 55:11 says "It is the same with my word. I will send it out, and it will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it". Our situation was full on financial impossibilities (sorting out cars, apartments, visa's, moving budgets etc.) But God is making a way! It's not over yet, but we are on the right path.
I'd like to honour Ps Paul and Jo Geerling, Senior Pastors of iSEE Church for such an amazing last 10 years of ministry in Australia! The immeasurable growth, wisdom and blessing we received from them and our iSEE church family is truly humbling. We are so thankful for you and you'll be sorely missed, though we know family is always family and we'll be seeing you soon.
It's with great excitement that we set our full attention now to the exciting around that God has for us to minister in. At the moment we are taking a short break in Northern Jutland with our family for Christmas but we won't waste anytime getting straight into into it. Before January is finished, we will have ministered in Northern and Central Denmark, at the Jesus Saves conference in Kirchheim, FCG Frankfurt, Germany and also in Wales. God is opening some exciting doors as we seek to resource youth and church leaders to raise the next generation.
Please continue to pray for us as we establish ourselves as a family and also as a ministry.
We would be honoured if you'd join us in praying for the following:
- A suitable, permanent house to move into around the Copenhagen area.
- Wisdom and insight about how to build Lift Leaders.
- The ministry opportunities that we have, to see God change lives and see people activated in their purpose.
- More, right ministries opportunities and relationships to come along.
- Financial resources
Our prayer is that you and your family have a wonderfully restful Christmas and a blessed New Year!
