Previous Prayer Point: Where to continue my mission work in 2024.

After much prayer I have decided to return to Australia for 2024 and will be working more closely with The Harvest and Youth For Christ to see more young people come to Christ and more believers equipped to make disciples.

Previous Prayer Point: Find a local church to labour with and invest in.

I found a church! "His Place House of Worship" where I am meeting weekly with one of their pastors, Nathan, and running a weekly disciplemaking group for their members.

Previous Prayer Point: Healing for ongoing migraines and headaches.

Migraines and headaches are almost all gone! Since February I haven't been eating any carbs and it's shown to be very effective, even with a few pieces of bread and sweets here and there. I'll be monitoring the migraines and seeing if certain foods cause them.
