2020 has been a whirlwind so far and it’s only February! Please see what the Lord has been doing and what is coming next…
Cultivate Summer Programme
In January I had the privilege of being apart of the first Cultivate Summer Programme here in New Zealand. Cultivate is a Youth Discipleship Programme designed to teach young men and women how to cultivate their relationship with God and how to study and understand the Word of God. I am blessed to be a member of the Staff for this programme so I was apart of the organisation and the execution of the programme. I was also able to be a counsellor during the programme this year. It was such a blessing to spend two weeks doing life and sharing the Word of God with the girls I had in my room. We had 40 students and staff this year from all over New Zealand, Australia, Tuvalu and Fiji and it was such a blessing to see the students grasp their position in Christ and the grace He has for them through the teaching of the book of Galatians and how to study and understand the Word of God through the teaching of Inductive Bible Study. We are looking forward to the Winter Retreat in July. The Lord truly worked through the Programme and it is amazing to see how the Lord can use such young lives when they are choosing to give all that they have to the Lord. If you would like to see more and read testimonies from some of the students from Cultivate 2020 Summer Programme here are some photos and links to the Website and a video of the camp:
February 2020 Semester
A few weeks after Cultivate ended we started preparations for Semester. I truly love being apart of CCBI and it is so exciting to be starting a new semester here at the school. We have 30 students from around the world, America, Canada, Germany, Denmark and Fiji are represented in just the students. I am running the coffee shop, girls dorm and doing administration for the school this semester! I love my job and am so blown away when I think on how the Lord has called me and enabled me to be apart of this ministry for this time. In the upcoming months we will have our Speakers Week which is an incredible time for the students and staff to hear from different speakers from various churches around the World! It is a good time for us to focus and set time aside to hear from the Lord. Please be praying for the Speakers as they are all coming from the USA as they travel and as they prepare that the Lord would speak to them so they can speak to us! Also I will be leading an Outreach to Sydney, Australia to come alongside the Refresh Sydney Conference by running a children’s programme. This will be such a blessed time to serve those that are apart of the Churches in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Rim. Please be praying for the preparation for this outreach as we plan and seek the Lord for what to teach the kids and how we can be used over our time in New Zealand. Please pray for financial provision for this trip for myself and for the rest of the team. Please continue to pray for us at CCBI as we start off the semester, for the students that they would settle in to all the new things of being in New Zealand and studying at CCBI and for the Staff to be filled with wisdom and discernment how to best encourage, teach and be examples to the students over there time here. I am still highly involved at Shoreline Calvary in both the Children’s and Youth Ministry, please be praying for us as a church as we seek the Lord for a building of our own.
