St Ives

St. Ives, what a great place to start. Getting trained and using the training practically has been great for the team. We as a team have been able to see how we can use our different gifts in ministry, what a blessing that has been. The church has welcomed us with open arms to make us feel right at home.

Some of the ways that we have been able to help the church out has been through kids clubs and school assemblies. We have also had the opportunity to talk to people in or around there homes and share with them the Word of God. We are looking forward to doing BBQ on the beach, kids club, visiting schools, and an international night. Our team has bonded with the youth of St. Ives and were really excited to see them get on fire for the Lord. God is truly showing us his grace and mercy!

When in Rome

Our first night together as a team.  We bonded over gelato :)
Hanging out at the Transform conference.

We ate A LOT of pasta.

Team time.

We got a day to explore/get lost.  BUT we had time to see a few amazing sites.

Worshiping on the streets of Rome. 
No worlds can describe how perfect life was at this moment.

Bewildered at the train station.

  On the road again.  Next stop, St. Ives!!!

Here we go...

Representing 5 countries from 5 different continents, 7 people in a Ford Transit Van named Mr Chunkers. (the girls named it, sorry). An experience of a lifetime. God help us. We have 2 Americans, 2 Australians, a South African, South Korean and then someone that says she is from Trinidad and Tobago but no one actually knows where this is or if it possible to find on a map.
Each individual brings something different to the team, we are yet to discover what that actually is, but with time this will all be revealed.
We have seen how God has blessed our team with unity and the ability to deal with any conflict by 'hugging it out'.
So let's introduce the team:
Anna from the Lost Country of Trinindad and Tobago, Krista from the USA, Sara from Australia, Carrie from the USA. That's the girls.
From the guys side we have Sungkwang Doo from South Korea, Jaco from South Africa and Quentin from Down Under (Tasmania, Australia).
