Well, after both my flights getting delayed, arriving to New Zealand after the rental car place had closed and with my bag still in Asia, Olli and I set off on our adventure.

We had an incredible time having lunch and playing pool with the local young adults after sharing a communion message and teaching the kids about baptism on Sunday morning. Then we hopped in the car, took a pit stop at Hobbiton, and headed down to the conference. Our time here has been great.

This afternoon we had a key conversation with the Youth and Young Adult Director of this movement. He and his wife were so supportive of what we are doing and we are already planning how we can share at their youth camps in April to see more workers raised up and sent out!

Thank you so much for your prayers! God has been so faithful and we have been so encouraged in so many ways so far.

Things to thank God for:

  • We had an awesome time on Sunday, June 14 as we shared at a local church.
  • We have been able to have some crucial conversations with key leaders. They are excited to continue partnering with us in even greater ways.
  • So far driving on the other side of the road has been a pretty easy transition.
  • We’ve had some great connections with Wayne, the guy joining us in August.
