So hey everyone,
It’s been about 3-4 weeks since I traded the comforts and familiarity of home for a completely new environment and way of life. It’s a temporary season, but I can’t help but feel like I could be doing this for the rest of my life, standing in the gap and ministering to God every day from 12am-6am when the rest of the community is asleep. A majority of injustice and dark deeds are performed in the dark and cover of the night and it is such an honour (a scary honour) to be doing this with a bunch of like-minded people who are equally passionate about pulling heaven onto earth and to partner with God and His heart to bring justice.
To be honest, it’s only been a few weeks and I can hardly recognize myself in the mirror. My thoughts are different, the deep-seated strongholds in my life are quickly losing their foothold, and I’ve never felt so alive. Like, really alive. I love reading the bible now (which is a miracle in itself), I’m more fascinated with God than ever, and I love it. My roommates are amazing – they are such gems and there are so many international students too which is so encouraging because I don’t feel so alone when I encounter something I don’t know about American culture (and there is so much I don’t know). It’s been an eye-opener but I LOVE IT! It’s so pretty here in Kansas City too and it’s been amazing, going on walks with newfound friends and bonding over coffee and birthday cake Oreos.
I do miss my friends in Perth and the culture and the food, but yet I don’t miss it at the same time? It’s a weird sensation but I’m okay with it. 🙂
I’m looking forward to see how God is going to work in the next few weeks.
Love you all,
