As most of you know, we started a youth
group here in Katherine about 9 months ago.
Well, the numbers have been growing steadily
since we lowered the age to 5 years old.
Every week has seen the blessing
of increased numbers and we have
been excited to see the growth.
But as you know, in our Christian walk,
blessings and burdens go hand in hand.
Fruit and foes, grapes and giants,
opened doors and closed doors.
I Corinthians 16:9
" For a great door and effectual
is opened unto me,
and there are many adversaries"
So, a few weeks back we were told by the council
that we would not be able to use our current
premises anymore and would have to find
another place to meet within 2 weeks.
This came at a time when we were growing
as a Youth Group and things seemed
to be moving along so well.
But the Lord always sees the bigger picture and
we trusted Him to lead and guide us.
After looking around we found a place that
was much more suited to our needs and really
began to pray in earnest.
Long story short, the Lord answered miraculously
and we were able to secure a new meeting place
right in the centre of town with everything
we needed and much better facilities.
Last Friday, we held our first Youth Group there
and we had record numbers.
Most of our children are under 12 with our
girls being the only teenagers, so far.
Our old bus is making itself really useful
and even the cruiser is now busy picking up
kids as well. The kids love riding in the bus
even tho it stalls at times and bounces along
at the most inopportune moments.
We look forward to each week and the challenges
we will face and the souls that can be reached
here in Katherine.
".....Behold, I say unto you,
Lift up your eyes, and look
on the fields; for they are
white already to harvest."
Please pray with us that God would
use this ministry for the furtherance of
the gospel here in Katherine.
