Airlie Beach Outreach Week

This past week was our first mini outreach week!!! It was so exciting and went really well! We left as a school (58 of us) on Wednesday, Nov. 17th at about 2:30pm. Our destination was Airlie Beach. The drive was 17 hours long. We took two buses that carried about 25 people and one van - we headed north! We drove 5 hours to Harvey Bay. We arrived in Harvey Bay around dinner time and stayed in an old YWAM house. This house is very small, one level, a few rooms. The boys set up tents outside and the girls crammed in the house side by side on the floors in each room. Talk about an experience. It's like having a family of 58 people. Not even kidding - we made pasta and garlic toast and salad. Used plastic plates and small plastic forks and ate as one big family. After dinner I walked down to the beach. The house is literally one street away from the beach. The moon was bright and there was a light breeze. I walked on the beach for a long time. It was high tide so the water splashed on my feet. I love the beach day or night. I love it at night because there are no lights out, only the moon shining above me and as I looked into the distance I could see a few twinkles on the horizon. I assumed they were light houses for boats or little islands. After my peaceful walk on the shore I walked back to the house and found my sleeping bag. It was on the wooden floor against a brick wall. There were 4 other girls in this 5x11 ft room. I had so much on my mind. Sometimes late late at night I like to just lay there in silence...I like to wait until everyone is asleep - because maybe then I can meet a quiet moment. When you live with 58 people there is never silence.

The morning came quickly and in my mind I think it would fit perfectly next to a morning at the zoo. There is so much to learn when living in community. The loud conversation and pounding feet all around the house woke me up at 6am. You know how when you wake up at your house and right when you open your eyes you're most likely alone. You have time to go to the bathroom alone and wash your face in a bathroom alone. You do all these things before you meet the world or any person for that matter...well in my world that is never possible. Right when I wake up I'm surrounded by people. It can be awesome if you look at that way! Definitely something to adjust to. We packed up at Harvey Bay and left at 8:30ish. Today was the long hall, 12 hours. Again with 58 people all traveling together bathroom breaks happen so often, so every 2 hours or so we would stop and take a break to get coffee and use the toilet. I'm a quiet traveler. I didn't really talk much, I personally like to stare out the window and just be still. Even though I'm still surrounded by people I'm in a car, sitting in a seat. I don't have to be anywhere or do anything - it can be restful. Long story short we arrived in Airlie Beach 12 hours later!

We all thought we would be staying in tents for 10 days but the Airlie Base was so kind and let us stay on their property. Lisa, the Schoolies (I'll explain what this is in a second) Leader for the week was so gracious and let the girl staff stay on the floor in her bedroom! What a blessing!

The outreach was Schoolies. Schoolies in Australia is the few weeks after High School graduation. Basically, parents (not all but most) pay about 145$ for their kid to stay in a hotel for a week on the beach and buy alcohol, party, sleep around, basically be completely free with access to drugs, sex, alcohol. America doesn't have anything like this, but here is Australia its a huge thing this time of year. And remember their season are backwards to ours so its coming now into Summer. Back to Schoolies...so what we did was this: YWAM Brisbane has this amazing thing called the Chai Tent. This tent is huge, like way big. Inside the tent we set up a kitchen area in one corner, with a sink and 3 serving/making drinks tables. In the middle/back was a stage with speakers on either end. In the middle there was carpet laid out, with about 12 small square coffee like tables close to the ground. Each table had 4 cushions surrounding it with a candle in the middle of the table. In the back of the tent near the entrance was a gigantic blow up jumpy strip thing. There were lights and music. In the kitchen we served chai and made slushies. I was in charge of the kitchen along with Niesje, another staff member. I was so happy when I found out I was in charge of the kitchen - I thought it fit perfectly for me...working at Starbucks and all :) I just love that type of thing!

Our daily schedule: Wake up at 10am. Breakfast till 10:30. Shower run at 11. Lunch at 1pm. Staff meeting at 2pm. I was in charge of instructing the house cleaning jobs for the team of students at the house each day from 3-5pm. Dinner was at 5:30. Everyone who had roles at the tent left at 6pm. We had worship and a short message at the tent (just us as a school) from 6:30-7:45. The 15 minutes before 8 o'clock the different teams in the tent prayed together and then at 8 o'clock we opened the tent! The tent was open from 8-1am every single night.

I hope that makes sense what Schoolies is and what the Chai Tent looks like. I feel like I'm typing so much...but I really want to fill you in on my outreach week. There are heaps of pictures below - I really try to balance my writing and pictures...I'm trying my best!!

Ok so back to explaining...the chai tent was set up on the beach. The students were split up into different teams for the week. The different things they would be doing were Prayer and Worship (for the 10 days we were there we had 24/7 hour prayer and worship in the prayer room downstairs. Anna and Jess, girls on my staff team, were in charge of this) then there was the kitchen area in the tent, 'on the floor' is what we called it, this is the carpet and table section of the tent. Making conversation with the schoolies that comes in, then there is night security, 4 guys that would stay overnight in the tent to watch it, and day security, 4 girls that would watch the tent during the day. Soooo as you can see...many different things going on - super full schedule. That's outreach weeks for ya! But sooo awesome at the same time. Its really incredible what all can be done in just 10 days.

I could go on for ages but I don't think that would be too fun to read. I hope that gives you a good sense of what happened, the different roles, and just an overall picture of our mini outreach week to airlie beach!

For me it was really incredible. Spiritually there was HEAPS of warfare. We were definitely working in a dark place. But God made it so clear that our tent, us, was the LIGHT on the beach! Each night as I stood behind the tables making/serving chai and slushies, I was so amazing by the people that came up. There were thousands of kinds on the beach. Heaps and heaps of young people walking in drunk, wearing close to nothing, you could see the darkness in their eyes...it was heart breaking. After the first night I had such a heart for these kids. I was so passionate about the kitchen each night.


Michael. Such an amazing driver :)

TEAR DOWN THE WALLS

My song for this season. God has completely wrecked my heart with His love!!!!! Listen to this song! GODS LOVE IS ENOUGH! Let your spirit release, let go, jump, free fall INTO THE ARMS OF GOD.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJNYXzzfjvQ

Tear down the walls see the world
Is there something we have missed
Turn from ourselves
Look beyond
There is so much more than this

And I don’t need to see it to believe it
I don’t need to see it to believe it
Cause I can’t shake this
Fire deep inside my heart

Look to the skies hope arise
See His majesty revealed
More than this life there is love
There is hope and this is real

Cause I don’t need to see it to believe it
I don’t need to see it to believe it
Cause I can’t shake this fire burning
Deep inside my heart

This life is Yours and hope is rising
As Your glory floods our hearts
Let love tear down these walls
That all creation would
Come back to You
It’s all for You

Your Name is glorious
Glorious
Your love is changing us
Calling us
To worship in spirit and in truth
As all creation returns to You

Oh for all the sons and daughters
Who are walking in the darkness
You are calling us to lead them back to You
We will see Your spirit rising
As the lost come out of hiding
Every heart will see this hope we have in You

Cause I don’t need to see it to believe it
I don’t need to see it to believe it
Cause I can’t shake this fire burning
Deep inside my heart

This life is Yours and hope is rising
As Your glory floods our hearts
Let love tear down these walls
That all creation would
Come back to You
It’s all for You

Your Name is glorious
Glorious
Your love is changing us
Calling us
To worship in spirit and in truth
As all creation returns to You

Photos!

Thank you Abba for weekends! My days off its just me and the ocean...words can't really describe these photos. They are simply breathtaking. This is the Gold Coast, more specifically Rainbow beach. The eighth picture down - the one picture where you see the city on the horizon..that's Surfers Paradise. From where I was standing, all the way around to Surfers Paradise is the Gold Coast. Rainbow beach is my favorite. I can't believe this is my home. God is so good!









































Hope you enjoyed those. Gives you an idea of where I live :)

Please pray

Prayer is real and powerful! I need your prayers. If you don't know this, I am here with YWAM as a volunteer. God has called me to this place. I know God doesn't call us somewhere, open a door, then close it halfway! He will complete the work He has started.

I need financial sponsors! Please pray for financial provision. I've been asking Abba, "Lord what is your financial plan for my life?" When I'm in the secret place with Him, He gives me so much peace. I don't know where the money will come from but I hear Him say so clearly, "Who am I, Alicia? Who am I? I will provide. It will come. Do you trust me?" He is the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out. He created the earth and everything in it. He gives breath to everyone. Isaiah 42 And for right now He has laid this on my heart to ask for sponsorship. So I'm sharing my heart and doing what Abba tells me to do. Please pray. Even if that's all you can do, prayer is powerful! I know prayers go in the dwelling place with God. If Abba leads you to sponsor me financially I will be eternally grateful! I have a $2,000 outreach fee due on November 17. That is the first huge deadline. Pray pray!

Please contact me if Abba leads you in anyway. If He leads you to sponsor me in anyway you can mail a check to the address on the left hand side column.

Don't hesitate to email me with questions, etc!

May Abba bless you in big ways!

Abba

Wow. I don't know where to begin. God has really got my attention. I know He wants all of me. He's showing me that He is my Abba. I belong to Him. I know that anything is possible with Him. Even though I can't really understand much of what's going on in my life right now, He understands. He holds it all. He holds the dreams I haven't dreamed yet. He holds all the desires of my heart. He holds me. And He wants me to abide in Him. I can't put into words how precious the secret place with Him is. It's in this secret place that I find perfect peace. In this secret place with Abba, when I look to Him with both eyes wide open and my heart searching...I find Alicia. I find who I really am. Dear self, die. I want to live for Abba. Dear self, I want to love like God. "Who am I?" God says to me. You are God, You hold the universe. Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts. Your ways are higher than my ways. Nothing is an accident. "Alicia I want you to fly with me. Keep your focus on me." I can't get enough of His presence. I am my own person. I am Alicia. I know I am special. I know I was created with purpose. These are things that Abba tells me in the secret place with Him. My heart is so overflowing with Him I couldn't help but write about it. I'm so excited about what Abba has in store. God has great things in store, great things.

You should listen to the video below. Let God's love wreck your heart.

Mrs. Audrey

It was about 5:30 pm and I decided to go for a walk with Abba. At this time of day the breeze is cool and the sun is down. It's the perfect time of day to walk. I headed down our street and took the first left. I like to go sit at this one bench at the end of the street to just pray and look at the moon and gorgeous clouds. I had my ipod in and Hillsong 'You' was playing. I was enjoying Daddy's Presence and His perfect love found in the wind that surrounded me. I found myself smiling up at the rich blanket of blue, so thankful for His perfect peace. I was almost at the bench and to my right across the street I see this elderly woman with a walker. She had a blue dress on and was walking extremely slow. Each step was a lot of work. She was walking on the grass away from the sidewalk and she was looking at the flowers in the yard she was near. I immediately thought, "Ooh, I want to go talk to her." I have such a passion for elderly people. They are so dear to my heart. So I sit down and kept thinking how I wanted to go say hi. In that moment as I was watching her walk directly across the street from my bench, the Lord said to my heart, "Go talk to her." I go, "But what do I say?" and He goes, "I'll give you the words." So I sit there for about ten more seconds. I stand up and cross the street in faith. There were no cars so I peacefully cross with a smile. At this time I had taken my ipod out of my ears and wrapped the cords in a bundle. As I'm nearing the sidewalk she sees me and raises her precious face and says, "Well hello darling." She stands still and I go, "Hiii! I live just around the corner up the road, and I wanted to say hello. I'm Alicia." She goes, "Aww, well I'm Audrey." I said, "I was just walking and saw you and wanted to come say hi." She goes, "Well I'm glad you did!" With the biggest smile on her face she continues to talk. "Yes I love walking at this time of day, the sun is down so its nice and cool for me. I try to walk everyday or else...well I can't, you know I have to keep moving...because I'm old..and I've had trouble recently crossing over drains so I have to walk on the grass part. And you know you'll see a lot of us kind out at this time of day..you know, old people like me. In fact, there's a nursing home just there (and she points across the street directly behind the bench I sit at - which I think is a total God thing because I love elderly people so much, and the fact that I live just a street away...wow. Daddy is so incredible) she continues...that's a nursing home, the red building there. So you could go over there anytime and meet people or you'll see them out walking just here - we all need love. I hope I never get in there (She smiles real big)" I listen and smile, my eyes are wide, I feel so happy I could cry at this point, my face is lit up and my heart feels like its overflowing with sooo much joy...and I say "Aww yea, wow thats amazing. I'd love to come see you and go for walks together. Could we walk together?..and yes I enjoy this time of the day as well. Walking is such a lovely thing for me. Its my time alone." She then says, "Why yes of course we can dear...So did you just get off work or something, what do you do here?" I said, "Oh no, have you heard of YWAM just up the road a bit?" She goes, "Why yes, I certainly have. I am familiar with those lovely people. You know, I am a christian myself, yes I love Jesus...and I think its amazing work you do up there." I go, "Wow, yay...well yes, I am a leader over there. I've been here for just two months and this is going to be my home for a while...however long God wants me here...so I love meeting people in the neighborhood...making this feel more like home. I know this is exactly where God wants me to be...and in that I find peace." She goes, "That's good dear, thats good. Where are you from dear?" I go, "I'm from Tennessee." She goes, "Oooh American, how lovely." Chuckles a bit. She goes, "So have you made good friends where you are?" I go, "Yes I have. There are over 50 people that live at the base so it can be hard to find alone time. That's why I walk, because its just me and God. His presence is amazing. So yes, relationships are still forming slowly, and yea I just love walking with my ipod up and down this bit." We continued to talk for a while and I found out that the house she was walking in front of was hers. I will take pictures...She lives there with her two granddaughters. They work from 6 am-6 pm so she's alone all day. She has been living there in that little darling blue house with flowers surrounding it for 30 years. She says walking helps her day, it gets her out of the house. She went on and on about how great the Holy Spirit is for her and how she is in her house all the time by herself, so she's alone but not lonely, do you know what I mean? I agreed with her and we just talked about how amazing God is. She walks at 4 or 5 pm every day. I told her I wanted to see her again and how it made my day to meet her. I said, "I'm so glad I came to say hi." She goes, "Me too, dear. Me too. And you are welcome in my home at anytime if you want to just rest or sit in my garden here. I sit in that room just there, (she pointed to the house), just go knock on that window and I will know its you. And you can come in." I wanted to cry! God is sooooo good!!!!! What an incredible moment. Talk about a divine appointment. I wish you could meet her she was so precious. So yes! I'm going to see her next week! And hopefully every week. We are going to go walking together. She said she would love company. I can't wait to see her again - God is so good and He always provides. What a blessing - Thank you Abba for Mrs. Audrey. All glory to you Daddy.

Thankful



Where to begin...

I'm listening to Angus & Julia Stone
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMUJpdj4fV8&feature=related
I love this song so much. You should listen to it!

My current moment is extremely lovely. I'm sitting at my night stand/desk in a green chair. My four windows are wide open - a cool breeze is dancing in across my face and filling up my room. My floor is clean and my clothes are folded nicely. My little lamp is on and the big light is off. My Jesus Calling is to the right of my computer next to my cup of tea. The pages are moving up and down ever so delicately due to the wind and my ceiling fan. If I close my eyes its as if its only me, the wind, Daddy, and my music. The strings to the blinds are swaying. The water in my water bottle is completely still. My tea cup however is extremely hot - tonight I'm sipping green tea with peach. It's been my favorite this week. If I look up into the deep black sky out my window I can't see any stars - but I know they are shining bright beyond my lamp. I feel like this is the first time I've sat down all day. As I sit and process the days events, my heart is so thankful. Daddy is so incredibly good. I'm thankful for this moment. I'm thankful for the wind. I'm thankful for a roof over my head. I'm thankful for tea and music. I'm thankful for a computer. I'm thankful for functioning hands to type these words. I'm thankful for God's never-ending love. I'm thankful I serve a God who is constant and unchanging.

How am I doing? I'm really good. Daddy reminds me daily that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. This afternoon the staff team had a crazy amazing powerful intense worship/prayer time. So much freedom in His presence! I'm learning to rest in Daddy's Presence more and more and more and more! I may be weak but I know my Daddy is strong enough to hold me tight - and that makes everything okay. It just takes me focusing on Him completely and receiving His perfect love. The same God that holds the heavens holds me, and you. Why should I doubt for one second that He can't hold me together? I'm learning that everything points back to God. It's all about Him. It's all about Him. IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

I hope you are finding peace, as always - I don't know who reads my blog but if you do thank you from the bottom of my heart - it truly means the world. Writing brings me so much peace - I know my posts are all over the place and sometimes long but I try to write from my heart and share what God is doing - It really is all about Him. I hope you are encouraged precious ones!

I send a big hug across the stars and over the moon! Speaking of the moon, if you see it say hello - We may see different stars since I'm on the other side of the world (depending on where you are) - but we all see the same moon.

Music I've been listening to this week...sorry it's not a link or video on here, I tried to make it that way but it wouldn't work for some reason. You can just copy and paste it :)

Living a life of influence

If you know anything about me you know that honesty is important to me. And if you don't know that, well now you do. I won't sit here and tell you everything is jolly when I'm actually being stretched more than I've ever been. I try to be real. I'm just me, that's all I can be. I embrace where I am and what comes to me, and I try to run to God with everything I have. At the end of the day, it's not about how great I can be or what I'm doing. It's about what God's doing in my life, its all about Him.








My darling Snickerdoodle. Has so much love to give :)


The beautiful sky from my window

To be honest, the past few days have been really hard. If you see the first picture of my night stand - if I'm learning anything I am learning things about myself. I love organization. Keeping things tidy and clean is important to me. (Just a little thing about me) So as you can see, I try to keep my night stand somewhat organized. If you notice the purple container on the blue felt square, the one with tick-tacks? Do you see it? It's two simple objects that describe how I'm feeling right now and how I see God. In all honestly, I feel like I'm falling apart. I feel like I'm in a million pieces - like the tick-tacks scattered everywhere. Completely still. They can't pick themselves up. They just rest in the container. The container represents God. He is holding me together. When God gave me that picture, those objects, He also gave me a verse. 'Micah 7:7,8 As for me, I look to the Lord for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemies! I will rise again. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.' I love that verse. You may be thinking, woah she feels like she's falling apart. Man, that's hard. She must be having a great time because she's in Australia? Or because she's in YWAM. Yes, I'm apart of YWAM living in Australia. But YWAM is just a system. The system isn't the ultimate deal. I'm living life where God wants me to live right now in this season but ultimately its about how I live my life, not about where I am. Let me tell you dear friends, it has nothing to do with where you are in the world or what you're apart of - where you are and what you're apart of won't make you happy. God is the foundation for joy, peace, love, strength... on and on. It's found in Him - at the end of the day its about your heart. Its about what God's trying to say to you. What is He speaking to you? What is His heart for you? Are you running to Him with all that you have? Are you being real about what you're going through and where you are? These are all questions I'm currently asking myself. Right now even. Maybe you feel like you're falling apart too, I don't have answers because I'm in that same place - the only answer I have is to run to God and seek His face. Ask Him hard questions, don't be afraid to really tell Him how you feel. Maybe you're reading this and you feel a bit weird as you're reading. Maybe you didn't expect this or you aren't used to people throwing out how they are really doing. I find beauty in being real about you're feeling and how you're doing. Yes it may be hard and uncomfortable but I'd rather be real with people and tell you that man, I don't have it all together, but let me tell you who is Perfect, let me tell you about the most amazing person that holds me together and loves me completely, thats JESUS. God's love is perfect. At the end of the day its about my God - and how is my life influencing those around me? How is God shining through my life? Can people see His love? Are you living a life of influence? Whether you're in a University, working, you have a job or don't have a job, maybe you're still in high school, you live at home or away from home, you're in America or outside the States - wherever you are...are you living a life that influences the people around you? Are you being real with how you're feeling? Do you know that you can't carry everything on your own? You are supposed to be weak - so God can be strong. Man I feel like I just wrote a novel. Sorry this is so long, but then again I'm not sorry because I love being real! So I don't have to apologize for that! I realize its not the most fun thing to read a super long blog - but if you are reading this I pray God speaks to you. He is the only good thing in me. And in all honesty as I've shared, that's what I'm learning and that's how I'm doing.

One more thing that's on my mind...
God is sovereign, and has a much bigger picture than I can see. I may feel like I'm falling apart and I'm learning that that's okay. The enemy wants me to believe that I have to act like I'm all put together and have everything figured out. That I should just cover up the things I'm feeling and not be real. But no, God wants me to embrace where I am and know that He is holding me. And through this time, I am growing closer to Him. Which is the ultimate goal. What is God teaching you? Let me know how you're doing? I would love to know what God is doing in your life! If not on a comment, shoot me an email :)

The DTS students arrive in about 3 weeks. I can't believe it! This week is the last week of Basic Leadership School intake phase. Next week we start DTS school prep! Woohoo!

Oh and ps. - no matter what you're going through, be sure to care for yourself. Make sure you look after you. Whether you're falling apart or having the best day of your life. Do something that does make you smile. And remind yourself constantly that God has a much bigger picture than what you can see.

Beautiful day with Jesus

God is soooo good! His love is perfect. Here are a few pictures from Sunday, my day off :)


The weather was lovely. Not too hot, not too cold. The breeze was nice too.


My day started off with some Starbucks. First time treating myself to a drink! Made me miss home so much.


I went to the bookstore and rested there for a bit.


Then I stopped by my favorite little place called The Tea Centre. Its one of the most cozy places to read and write, just to rest and be still, I can't describe in words just how amazing the tea smells are but they are incredible!




Hungry Jacks = Burger King


As I was walking towards the river I passed this beautiful tree tunnel. I love the bush here.


There are so many beautiful buildings.


And the trees are HUGE.






I can't get over the beauty of Brissy. There are incredible modern buildings with color and right next to it there's gorgeous old aged buildings with unique design. Amazing.


I took this while I was walking over the bridge to South Bank.


There are heaps of places where I can find peace and relaxation. Fountains and gardens with grass and benches. Such a blessing.


Cute lego men climbing on this art building.


I spent the day barefoot. So freeing.


Part of South Bank (South Brissy) There's a man made beach in the middle of the city, with fountains and pools.


So many cute kids playing in the water.




JAMES!!!


I sat in a japanese restaurant for a little bit...


This is how they serve water everywhere :)


As you leave South Bank to go back into the city there's this amazingly wonderful ferris wheel. Gorgeous with all the lights shining.


This fresh grassy area right beside the water looking to the city is probably one of the most soothing places. I love Brissy so much. I'll have to take a video sometime when I'm running at night, but its so quiet and peaceful. Yes you can hear cars and such, but there's a stillness about it thats so calming. No horns, no loud noises. Super quiet. And the people are so friendly too, I feel super safe in the city at all times. Even at night when I run, its really safe. There are so many runners out. I love praying at night time.


Sitting on the grass by the water praying over Brissy. (Left view)


(Right view)


Near the grassy patch is a bridge that runs along the water, this is that view. This is where I run, along this long bridge walk thing...the next picture shows the path.


This is the path. I run along here...


I'm headed up to that white shining bridge that goes into the city, right now (when taking this picture), I'm on the South Bank side of Brissy.


I run up a circular ramp leading up to the bridge, cross the bridge...you'd think it'd be loud and noisy at night right now, but its actually so quiet. One of the most breathtaking places I've ever been to. God is so good!!


Stretch break/water break on the bridge.


If I needed help or assistance at anytime I press that button and someone will come.


Almost into the city. From there I run to the train station. (See the shining small half circle on the right side? That's the ferris wheel!)


I made it safely to the train station. Hopped on the train and found a cozy cushioned seat. It was a short, quiet ride home, as you can see its super empty. Felt so good to sit down.

Then it was home sweet home :)

That was my Sunday. Now you have a glimpse into what a day off for me looks like. I hope you understood each picture caption, I tried to make them as clear as possible so you could really understand everything, and get a better overall picture of where I'm living :) God is so incredible! Glory to HIM!!
