A Beautiful Harvest - Team Austraila

A Beautiful Harvest - Team Austraila

What an exciting end to the week it has been here in Melton. We partnered with City West church and the amazing pastors here, Mark and Cazz. We began by ministering to  a Christian High School where the teacher in charge of chapel had been very discouraged only having had 6 kids all year come forward for prayer. 

The team kicked it off by allowing the Lord to highlight a few students to prophesy over, then Patrick shared his testimony and gave an altar call. Though hesitant at first, before dismissal we had approximately 25 come forward with 4 led to the Lord through salvation prayer!! The teacher leading was super encouraged and uplifted by the way the Lord moved.  

We were on fire as the Holy Spirit continued to pour out  that night at City West College. We all shared prayer testimonies and prophesied over the students who for the first time ever felt the boldness to do the same, many on our team were blessed by their prophetic words in return. God is so good. 

Before our ministry time Friday, we got to spend time at the Wildlife Park and finally see and pet some Kangaroos!!

Last night the entire team had the privilege of ministering to the youth group here at City West. Once again we began with allowing the Lord to highlight a few to encourage, then Aaron shared his testimony and spoke on the Father’s heart. So many hearts touched as we once again moved in the prophetic ensuring each student a taste of the Father’s heart for them personally. Two more salvations came out of this powerful night! God is so faithful!!

Greetings from Down Under- Team Australia

Greetings from Down Under- Team Australia

Yesterday we flew from Sydney to Melbourne, pronounced “Melbin” by the locals – just say it out loud and you will understand… We met the pastors at Melbourne airport and downed a quick long black (coffee), before heading out to our host homes. Everyone is in awe of the beauty of this country and her people and God’s kindness in sending us to this wonderful place.

On Wednesday night, Shelby Hornbuckle spoke on honor (or, “honour” to our Australian friends) to Salt Community Church in Bomaderry, New South Wales. A woman with Fibromyalgia and severe depression came forward for ministry. She experienced a reconnection with God and began to cry as she felt her pain lessen. Another girl, who originally intended to go to a party instead of church, reported that she had a similar testimony to that of Shelby’s. Two of our team prayed with her. She began to cry as she told them she felt beautiful again, that she felt love for herself, and felt worthy to be honored after a long season of self-hatred and shame.

           Last night, Will Law spoke on healing at a service at Hillview Church for their youth group, Summit Youth. The group is led by our own Nashville natives, Sam and Tink McCloud. We played a hilarious game and ate from giant pile of “chips” in preparation for the service. After worship the team received prophetic words for the teens and sat down to listen to the teaching. 

 After the service the team was released to minister healing for those in the church who needed healing.  A young lady came up the the microphone who had trouble with tightness in her hip after a reconstructive surgery. The girl, a dancer, said that after her surgery she was unable to perform without experiencing at least three days of tightness in her reconstructed hip. She said that during the service her hip tightness was almost completely released in a moment. Another one of the church members was prayed for concerning a lengthy bout with bronchitis. I watched awe and realization wash over his face as his lungs gave up remnants of the bronchitis he had had for three months!

           We spent today cleaning closets and battling Australian Redback spiders as we swept and tidied Hillview church in preparation for tomorrow’s service. Our hearts are being knit together through laughter, Australian cuisine, and the victories that God is giving us in this wonderful place. Jetlag is giving way to sleep, and our hearts are giving way to rest as we enjoy the Aussie culture and the adventure in which we have found ourselves.

Surfing the Lord - Team Australia

Surfing the Lord - Team Australia

Team AUSSOME has arrived! After a testing 24 hours of travel, we landed five days ago. I took the first opportunity to put my feet in the Tasman Sea (part of the South Pacific). So far it feels as if we died and went to paradise.

Time anomalies

A curious oddity of the travel is we will never experience Friday, 4th March. It’s just gone. The timezone shift wiped it from existence. Taken together with wandering beautiful beaches, Aussie accents and the weird time zone anomaly, it feels as if we’re living in our very own episode of Lost.

What’s happening

Since we landed five days ago at Sydney, we travelled south to Nowra. We’re based here until Friday, then we fly to Melbourne for the remainder of the trip. So far we’ve spent time connecting with churches and speaking about the father’s heart. One church we visited was on the edge of the beach. We can learn so much from them… Church. On a beach. Heaven. On. Earth.

In fact, this morning we surfed the Lord at another beach. We’ll be sharing on honour later with the a local youth ministry, and tomorrow we’ll be working with a homeless ministry. Some of our other plans are to launch a short school, further outreaches to different communities, as well as sharing what we’ve been learning with local churches, more youth ministries and schools.

Salt Ministries

I want to mention Peter and Meg Dover, pastors of Salt Ministries in Nowra, to you. They have tirelessly served us and enabled us to do everything here. They opened up their church, their home, they fed us, they taught how to surf and they’ve shown us what it looks like to be full of character and grace. These two have paid a huge price to be where they are today and we feel so privileged to spend our time with them. I’m hard pressed to think of two kinder, more down-to-earth people.

Revealing the father

One quick testimony. On Sunday, one of our team, Kerri, spoke on the father’s heart. During the ministry time we forgave our earthly fathers for how they fell short of revealing our heavenly father. Afterwards, Kerri spoke with a girl of about ten years, and her step father. It transpired that Julie’s [not her real name] biological father was abusive, threatening her and her family through early childhood. Later a family friend filled in some of the gaps. Not only was her father abusive, but he took his life in front of Julie. After a hellish childhood and a life through the foster care system, Julie had known very little of what a good father looks like. She chose to forgive her dad, and after some prayer she experienced something she’d not felt before: freedom from her pain and trauma. She said she felt a lot better now, actually happy now — a far cry from how she experienced life before.

Follow the adventure

Follow our photos on Instagram with #teamAUSSOME and keep your eyes posted on our school blog for more updates from our team. You can pray for us that the father’s love would be powerfully poured out through our time here. Nothing would be better.

Outreach 2016

Outreach 2016

What does Outreach look like for the School of Supernatural Life?

 

It looks like our students taking the LOVE that they have experienced and their lives which have been transformed in the last months, to churches and ministries around the world. They will be encouraging leaders and communities through teaching, ministry, prophecy and mostly just by being carriers of the goodness of a loving Father. It isn't as much about what they do, but who they are and who they bring with them. Trips this year range from 10-21 days and are in  5 countries (including 3 in the US).

 
Two-thirds of God’s name is GO...
— Lyle Phillips

71 students and leaders are now literally around the world and since God is not bound by time or space, we get to enter into the synergy of our body of students hugging the world with the kindness, love and mercy of Father God. They are in Iceland, South Africa, United Kingdom, Australia, Jackson, MS, Auburn, AL and right here in Nashville.

You can follow along on this blog to read more about their trips in the upcoming weeks and follow Instagram for more amazing pictures.
