Training in a word: Renovation!

on Wednesday, 25 January 2017 10:42.

But a word would not suffice, to give maximum glory to God, so I will expand a bit.

Starting with a strong theme of us being under construction, and Jesus being the master builder, the students stepped into a teachable humility. Being faced with cracked and wrecking balled foundations, the students have taken massive strides towards the fullness of Truth.
The students' transformation, came clearly and inescapably. Put in situations where they had no other option but to believe they had the capability to go on and to believe that Jesus will come through. Difficult challenges such as the Luke 10 from the Transkei to Jeffreys Bay, grew their faith and though it was hard, it created a platform for Jesus to prove Himself worth the risk. They came back exhausted and yet more on fire than before! Jesus showed up and He is faithful!
They very quickly became like family and one could taste the sweet flavor of unity in their midst. A unity, birthed in a space of being totally willing to let their walls come down and foundations be renewed. Like the original church, they had everything in common. Some things had to be broken down, for renovation.
It was beautiful to see such a willing group. They worked hard and often went a mile further than our expectations. This was evident during building week when they insisted to finish the job they have started. So after a hard working day of assisting with GLA's athletics, the group volunteered to finish the building project and they did so with flying colors! 
Altogether a teachable and passionate group of people who want to lead a God-seeking life style.
We are excited to hear more about our lovely construction sites!

I am not a dentist...

on Monday, 19 September 2016 11:29.

For the first time in almost a year I thought of how I got to this place in my life. It has been 15months since I started pursuing God with everything I am; just to find that He has been pursuing me my whole life. Back then I was standing at the beginning of a bright and promising career in Dentistry with an unparalleled ambition to make a difference. I was going to conquer the world, alone, one smile at a time! Now, many months later, I find myself on the other side of the world, hardly recognizing that person.

I traded my white coat for a Global Challenge jacket, thinking that after a few months I would just reverse the transaction and get a full refund on my life. This changes nothing. The 20year plan is still in motion but just on hold for a year. But then I started making more trades. At first it was small things that seemed similar: latex gloves for work gloves, mirrors and syringes for note books and blogs, veggies for starch, individual patients for crowds and my car for the privilege of walking.

Raw obedience

on Tuesday, 10 May 2016 13:31.

Raw obedienceOne of the central themes that began to emerge in the last few months in our Global family locally and abroad was the importance of obedience; of listening to the Lord’s voice at all cost.

Counting people that responded to the Lord’s voice in going short term, medium term and long term I can’t help but believe that God is speaking; He is definitely speaking!

When God tells us to minister to someone on the street or go to Jordan, He is asking to trust Him and His word above human threats or personal fears. What we not fully understand is that faith is not one-sided; God is asking us to trust Him because He trusts us.
