I’m reflecting that I was in Indonesia this time last year and following there Christmas traditions, I must admit I like the weather in Indonesia better but, there is nothing better than being home for Christmas. I’ve managed to see my family and share what the last year has brought which is why I’m thankful.

Why do we all cry out for more of God when were not even following some of the basic Christian values we teach our children! Love God first and love your neighbour as yourself!

I have witnessed over the past few years more people coming into the church with broken hearts, with deep anguish in their hearts and spirits. I was one of those people and hopefully one day I will be able to share my testimony.

The last month hasn’t been easy. I’ve lost an uncle who funeral it is today and I’m still in Papua, Indonesia. In my heart I’m there with my family as they bury my Uncle. I’ve wept with them as they have dealt with this sudden loss.

I like most people had an idea in my heart how I wanted my future to look. I would have a family, be married and have at least one child. I would have a certain job earning a certain amount of money and living in a certain house. I wanted to have the life I had pictured in my heart. I kept asking and praying for this to happen and it hasn’t happened yet.
