Raw obedience

Raw obedience

One 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.

Though it will be different for each of us, God wants to entrust us with something or someone. Jesus said, “It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” (Luke 12:32). Our Father wants to give us the entire Kingdom! The process of learning obedience makes us trustworthy to receive our Father’s purposes for us.

The only way we could ever be trusted with growing numbers of church plants to develop, students to teach, infants to feed and prisoners to love in a nation, we have learned to stick with obedience which means walking in unbroken loyalty to His voice. We know that obedience is our only hope of survival and nothing fuels your passion for trusting and obeying God like a walk through the dark. Not seeing, but believing.

It is with great respect that I want to mention those who obeyed; trusting God in leaving their own country on a long term period, knowing that they might have earned a Ph.D in “what not to do” in the field of obedience, mercifully God are strengthening them in loyalty to His voice and God is showing Himself as faithful. It is our “what not to do” experiences that are particularly valuable because they unlock the treasure hidden in Heb 5:8 “Although Jesus was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered.”

Let’s invite Jesus to encounter us with His love and awaken our passion for Him. Invite Him to give you His very own heart to always do what pleases the Father. You were worth Jesus obedience, and He is worth yours. He really did it all for us, and when such love overtakes our life, it leaves no contenders; and the surest way to be overtaken by His love is to pursue His voice above all others.



National Crowd Funding Day

Thank you to all who helped make National Crowd Funding Day such a great success.

More than R10 000.00 was added to our campaign as we rally to raise the last few Rands needed to finish our school.

We are still many facebook shares and donations short of our target. Remember, this is crowd funding at its best, and every contribution helps, no matter how small.

So visit our page and start sharing our story with your friends, family and collegues.

Last thoughts on 2015

Not much has changed since we left South Africa for the first time on the 5th of March. Coffee is about R3.50 more expensive per 250g and the Stormsrivier toll gate has increased to R40. 26-inch mountain bikes are almost phased out completely, which means by this stage everyone has a 29-inch to brag with.

Some people got married, others got engaged and the rest are still single. Some people have also been oversees, some got new jobs or a raise in their salary and a few have property on their name for the first time. But apart from these material things, everything is still the same. Everyone still talks about what they usually talked about and get joy out of the same things that gave them joy a year ago.

I look at these things and at the people and notice I am the one that have changed. The way I perceive things have changed. The way I relate to people have changed. One of the most frequently asked questions is: ''In what area have you grown the most this year?'' I am speechless at this type of question because I do not know where to begin or where to end. I do not even know what words to use.

This year pulled back the curtain that was over my eyes and gave me a staggering view of my Saviour. A view that boggles my mind and enraptures my heart. A view that leaves me breathless and speechless. A view that no false doctrine can stand in the presence of. The Holy Spirit opened my eyes to see the incomparable Christ. And this has wiped everything else off the table. Especially those things that used to compete with Him in my life. I no longer have to try to love Him. The love is ignited naturally at the sight of His matchless worth. You can say He has found the secret stairway into my heart, conquered it, and made it burn with joy.

I used to think about Jesus as our Saviour and Lord, but now I know He is so much more.

He is: our Shepherd, our Advocate, our Mediator, our Bridegroom, our Conqueror, our Lion, our Lamb, our smitten Rock, our living water, our food, our drink, our good and abundant land, our dwelling place, our new wine, our aroma, our anchor, our wisdom, our peace, our comfort, our shelter, our Healer, our joy, our glory, our power, our strength, our wealth, our victory, our redemption, our Prophet, our Priest, our kinsman redeemer, our teacher, our guide, our liberator, our deliverer, our Prince, our Captain, our vision, our sight, our beloved, our way, our truth, our life, our author, our finisher, our beginning, our end, our eternity - our all and all. He is the same yesterday, today and forever; yet He is new every morning. But beyond all of this He is our King, our judge and the True Witness.

May God have a people on this earth who are of Christ, through Christ and for Christ. A people of the cross. A people consumed with an unvarnished vision of God’s eternal passion: to make Christ preeminent, supreme, and the head over all things visible and invisible. A people who are searching His immeasurable depths, exploring His unfathomable heights, discovering His unsearchable riches, encountering His abundant life, receiving His infinite love, and making Him known to others.

– Frank Viola, Jesus Manifesto

Colossians 1:27

To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

2015. WHAT AN ADVENTURE. What an amazing privilege. Would I recommend Global Challenge? Definitely. Without a doubt in my mind. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat


Progress Update on our School Construction

on Thursday, 10 September 2015 14:12.

Ask any one of the Global Challenge participants, and they will all tell you that there is no challenge like a Global Challenge! Ask that same question to any of the Global Challenge locals in Jeffreys Bay, and they will tell you that there is no challenge, like a Building Challenge!

We thought it a good idea to update all of you, through a few interesting pictures, on the progress made in the constrcution of the new school buildings for Global Leadership Academy.
