For those of you stateside, you should know that Brisbane is 15 hours ahead of Central Standard Time Zone in Kansas City. As I write you now, it is 5:06AM Saturday, but only 2:06PM Friday afternoon for you. Incredible when you think about it!
The very fact I am now experiencing Saturday, nearly a day ahead of you all, gives new meaning to the principle that God is already in our tomorrows. He knows what lies ahead and invites us to lean on him with the uncertainty of our tomorrows.
So, if you are a bit anxious today. . .
"Cast the full weight of your anxiety on him, for he cares for you."
1 Peter 5:7
The past two days our team has been getting acclamated with our wonderful billets (host families) and preparing for ministry through Wild Wacky Week with the kids that will begin full-on on Monday- Thursday. Last night we enjoyed a sport/game night with the youth here in Logan and look forward to spending more time with them at "TOA" youth camp July 4-8. "TOA" is a Maori word loosely translated "warrior". Our youth leader, Reg, has invested much time and energy into preparing the program and curriculum for this camp that will focus on being a warrior for the Lord Jesus Christ and developing strength and resilience from within. Looking forward to it!
Today our team will have a bit of a holiday and head to the Australia Zoo. Yes, this is Steve Irwin's famous zoo! Should be a great day. I hope to post some pics when we return. Love to you all!
