The Power of a Testimony

The Power of a Testimony

Our stories are the secrets of who we are. They are beneath the normal level of conversation, buried deep within ourselves. In the first week of DTS, we are encouraged to share our life stories – the joys, pains, deep wounds, nothing left out. Not in smaller groups, not in gender mixed groups but everyone…

Real Prayers get Real Answers

Real Prayers get Real Answers

Real prayers get real answers. God always answers our prayers. Whether we realise it or not He hears them and acts on them, however, often His answer is something we are not always expecting. For quite sometime now my prayers have been prayers of asking God to take me deeper into his heart, to grow…

Not Just Dust

Not Just Dust

I had been praying for revelation. Why had so many others had these huge encounters with God and I was still feeling stuck, motionless, at an impasse with my relationship with God? Was I not hungry enough? Was I not pure in heart? All of these questions began a cycle of doubt. I used to…

Changing our perspective

Everything changes. There is not one thing that isn’t affected by change on this earth. The weather changes, people change, seasons change, circumstances change, attitudes change, everything changes. The only thing in the entire universe that doesn’t change is God. We always hear that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, but do we…

Prepare The Way

During a recent outreach, Medical Compassion team 2 had the opportunity to go to the Island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu. The name of the island translated from Spanish is Holy Spirit. When Captain Pedro Fernandes de Quiros discovered Vanuatu and landed on the island, he claimed it in the name of Jesus Christ. The…

Endless Hunger – A Poem

Endless Hunger – A Poem

My weary, dry bones cry out for your covering, For the life they in their own power could never birth. Flesh on my bones, Breath in my lungs, My exhale a cry for more, My inhale a suffocated man’s freedom. Wrap yourself around me as a covering, As a tunic pure as snow for me,…

Humility

Humility

Proverbs 22:4 “Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life.” Pride is a sneaky thing. When I was confronted with the fact that I had some seriously deep-rooted habits and mindsets of pride during my first week of the lecture phase, I decided to attack it head on…

Becoming a Family

Becoming a Family

Night has fallen on Mount Maunganui. As I gaze down upon the warm glow of distant streetlights, I am captivated by the mysterious emptiness of the ocean below, and I reflect on the greatness of God and His powerful stirring in the lives of the young believers across New Zealand. The Marine Reach July DTS has been active…

Consumed by the Flames of Glory, Himself

In photo: Shmuel Stadtlander The afternoon sun drenches Gideon’s Valley in cloths of light and gentle shade; there are precious days when the sun sits just above the waterfall and reveal near-whimsical waters that shimmer like a crystalline kaleidoscope. Walking along the shin-high waters upon a algae-smoothed rock shelf, all at the top of the waterfall,…
