Thee missionary dude!!

Simon Guillebaud, awesome missionary dude in Burundi has been such an inspiration for me (mentioned him two blogs ago). i just read an extract from his first ever news letter and it struck me!! here it is:
‘Disturb me. Lord, when my dreams come true, only because I dreamed too small. Disturb me when I arrive safely, only because I scaled too close to the shore. Disturb me when the things I have gained cause me to lose my thirst for more of you. Disturb me when I have acquired success, only to lose my desire for excellence. Disturb me. Lord, when I give up too soon and settle too far short of the goals you have set for my life. Amen.’

i hope that this christmas time has been a blessing to you all and that God continues to bless you

long time waiting...

first of all im very sorry i havn't blogged for a long time, had a heck of a lot on and blogging hasn't been top on my list of priorities! But just a few notes now on what i've been up to...
i went on an awesome christian camp called lymington rushmore in the summer. Got to meet loads of young christians and was a great faith grower!!
Christian Union at school has been a bit of a struggle i feel this term. It's hard to accomodate for what everybody wants and so we have had quite a lot of "discussions" about what to do in the 40 minutes every friday prep. But prayer will sort it out.
Also been doing the school play for what seems like a lifetime, the four performances were from wednesday to last night and it was awesome stuff! I remember when joe, one of the lead actors almost lost his voice on the second night, 4 of us christians backstage all huddled round and said prayers for him lead by Meegs and it was really cool. It showed me how sometimes im afraid of asking for God in situations like that but really, he's the only one that can help, "just do your best and let God do the rest!". His voice was completely healed last night, prayer works hey!!!
I've also been talking to Simon Guillebaud via email and he is SUCH a legend! He is utterly living alongside Jesus in Burundi and is God's hands and feet out in a really tough part of the world. His work is....
+ Evangelism and discipleship through schools and churches
+ Printing of teaching materials
+ Fighting the AIDS pandemic
+ Supporting a street children’s project
+ Helping to sustain an orphanage
+ Equipping and encouraging informed dialogue between Christians and Muslims
+ Training university students in outreach

Prayer for safety of his family and co-workers and the growth of the church in Burundi would im sure be greatly appreciated.
il leave you now with an awesome verse...
Isaiah 58:11The Lord will guide you continually, watering your life when you are dry and keeping you healthy, too. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.
