Recently I had the privilege of travelling to Sydney Australia to spend time with dear friends Quint & Kate Kotze, and their extended family, Grace City Church. The primary intention of our trip was to spend quality time with Quint & Kate, as well as Grace City Church, investing as much courage and faith into them as possible, for their new site plant. Whilst we were there they secured the use of a strategic venue in the suburb of St Ives. They are now currently running weekly meetings in the evening and are confident that they will be rapidly established. As we continue to pray for them, we are expectant and look forward to seeing the fruit of their faith when we return.
A wonderful surprise in the journey, was the meeting of new friends from ‘Regions Beyond’, a movement (family) of churches to whom Grace City Church belong. As I listened in on stories from Dubai, India, UK, Montana USA, UK, Australia and South Africa, it was faith building to see how the Kingdom of God is advancing across the world. I felt deeply refreshed and largely encouraged all at the same time. In our time together some meaningful relationships were formed in a short space of time, which we believe were God orchestrated. We are looking forward to investing into these relationships and are expectant to see how through them, we can together further advance and fulfill His purposes on earth.
Our faith as a result of the trip is more ‘laser-like’, we have a clearer vision of we want to take Keystone forward and we have an increased love for Jesus,…all in all a wonderful journey.
