hi archyive

Dear Friends and partners,

I really hope and pray that you are all going well and you are prospering in every area of life!
The year is flying and I can’t believe how fast it is going. There are many wonderful things happening and I wanted to share them with you.

As we have been praying for open doors to the Nations of Singapore and Philippines – Doors are opening – Praise God!

Singapore – Heart Revolution healing seminar has been brought forward to 19th of October 2013.

Only 8 weeks away! This being our first one day healing seminar in Singapore but praying God will make a way for more in the future as we take the word of healing to the people. (The seminar is open for men and women and we pray for the young people also to attend.)

This is a great blessing and the team there are doing a wonderful job, preparing the way for the seminar and for the Lord!

Especially both Poh Lin and Pastor Dianna, have been an amazing blessing to Graeme and I as they have worked hard to secure a good venue, good prices and all inclusive of wonderful food menu for the day, Singaporeans’ love their food so this is a huge bonus! Healthy hearts and healthy food.

Gem’s Ministry (S) Pte LTD has enabled us to do the healing seminar under their banner which is an amazing blessing. Pastors Richard and Lilian Tng have generously given us help and support for the seminar with their team and their ministry in Singapore covering the seminar.

Great partnerships in the kingdom are such a blessing, we are blessed by them and appreciate all their support and love and labour for the Lord. We pray for them also to be blessed abundantly!

*Please keep the Singapore Heart revolution seminar in your prayers this month and next month, as we believe God to bring healing to hearts in this wonderful place.

*Pray also for finances to come in to cover every aspect of the seminar from venue to food to bringing a team and the worship team and production equipment etc…

UPCOMING – ministry to DARWIN September – 5th to 8th

How exciting just next week we go to Darwin to spend some time with the indigenous women and hold their first women’s event called Heart Life! We will be with Pastors Roger and Vivienne Latham who do an amazing work in Darwin! God is opening amazing doors and we are excited to GO in His name. Graeme and myself, Stephanie Cecil and Ellie our daughter will embark on this journey to Darwin, please pray for us, health and strength (and to cope with the hot weather.)

Pray for the women of Darwin healing in their hearts, healing in their land. They are a people who love their home land, and we are praying for healing in the hearts of the women in this time we are together. I really believe it will be a strategic time of healing for these beautiful people.

We will also be ministering at a church in Darwin with Pastor John Russo.

We would love you to Keep us in your prayer for this trip.

Singapore visit – 10th to 13th September/ Philippines 13th to 18th Sept.

Directly after Darwin I will be flying to Singapore to meet with the team and go over plans for October seminar, then onto Philippines for some missions work with Global freedom church, along with Pastor Chris Hope and his team, sharing and preaching in Manila with various church ministries.

It’s a busy couple of months but the Lord is making the way and we are excited to see what God will do in these places as we Go! in His strength and anointing.

Without Him we are nothing but with Him and in Him all things are possible!

Philippines – sponsoring a Pastor – from our trip in February we have been in contact with Pastors Gordon and Emie Kalich of Eternal Life Ministries in Tacloban Philippines. We were so touched and blessed by the work there of the pastors who lay down their lives for their communities, we have decided to set up a sponsor a pastor. For approx $80 (aud) you can sponsor a pastor and family helping them support their work in their local church. Many of them don’t receive much for pastoring, so this is a great help to them. What they do have they give to their people to buy food, they are always giving to their people before themselves and often go without. This touched our hearts and we were stirred to do something for them. We have received emails of thanks from the pastors and photos which we will attach to the newsletter. They are so happy!

We intend to go back in 2014 for more ministry and heart revolution seminars across the islands.

Cambodia 2013 –

It has been in my heart for some time to visit Cambodia and as we have made contact with some ministries we are getting closer to planning this very special trip. Praying to work with families and children’s work in Cambodia, we will have more information soon, dates TBA but hoping to go in October after the Singapore conference.

If you would like to attend or be part of the team on any of the ministry or missions trips please contact me I am setting up teams now – either call me 0438563918 or email for any information or costs on the trips.

Graeme and I appreciate all the people, friends and supporters of our ministry to the nations; we are blessed by so many of you and pray for you also that God will bless you in your work for Him.

We would love to hear from you also and if you would like to be involved let us know.

If you would like to support or sponsor any of the ministry events, you can go to our website or email for more information on needs, costs of the seminars, or to sponsor a pastor or help in the Philippines.

Philippians 4:13 I have strength for all things in Christ who strengthens me! This is the word of God to our hearts, whatever we are doing He is our strength, He is our joy! We can do all things in Him, not in our own strength but in His. I pray this word speaks to your heart as it has mine.

We appreciate very much the prayers of our dear friends and partners with us in this journey of faith. Please continue to pray in these healing meetings and open doors to the nations.

We are praying for you also Gods favour and blessings be poured out, keep us posted with how you are going and if you would like to be part of any of the trips we would love you to come and share in this healing ministry across the nations and here in Australia AND Asia.

Much Love and Blessings,

3 John 2

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.

To prosper means to become strong and flourishing, it also means to succeed and thrive.

That sounds like life to me, the God kind of life Jesus came to give us – body, soul and spirit. Our inner life and our outer life, both are to prosper. Prosperity in the worlds system focuses on money and material wealth but God promises us prosperity and a flourishing life in all areas. Now that may seem like a challenge but it’s a promise!

In and throughout our whole being, we are to flourish and be in good health. In our physical bodies, emotional and mental capacities and in our spirits prosperity is God’s plan for our lives. Even in all our needs physical and spiritual. As we keep our eyes fixed on the Lord Jesus and our hearts before Him, He will take care of all our needs physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

If you need healing today take these words and meditate upon them. Believe on God’s word today for your complete healing and health.

Prayer: Thank You Jesus for giving me prosperity in every area of my life – body, soul and spirit. Thank you that you keep me well and whole in Jesus Name.

Proverbs 4:20-22

My son attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the centre of your heart. For they are life to those who find them healing and health to all their flesh.

The word of God is life and health to all our flesh, what a wonderful promise. As we keep our eyes on the word and keep the word in the centre of our hearts, God promises health and healing.

The key is to keep our focus on the word, not on our problems, or on the mountain’s we face in life. Trials will come to us, Jesus said be of good cheer He has overcome this world – John 16:33.The key is to keep our eyes on Him for He is the answer and His word is the answer for our health and healing.

To keep the word in the centre of our hearts is to believe what the word of God says over and above our circumstances. As we attend to the Word, we are deliberately putting it into our hearts and minds and in doing this we are being transformed from the inside out.

Prayer: Dear Jesus, help me to keep my eyes on You and Your word today. Thank You that your word is my health and healing in all my flesh today.

Proverbs 4:23

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.

Above all else we are to keep and guard our hearts.

The heart here is described as the wellspring of life this actually means it is the source of where life begins. Just like a well or spring it’s important to keep that source free from contamination; otherwise where it flows into will also become contaminated.

So it is with our hearts, being the source from where all things flow through. Our thoughts, beliefs, hopes and dreams our feelings and emotions are all filtered through our hearts.

The key is to guard our hearts from the negative sources of the enemy. Things like worry, fear, un-forgiveness, hurts, bitterness, doubt and unbelief, these are just some of the negative sources the enemy tries to put into our hearts and minds.

Is there anything inside your heart today that is stopping you from moving forward or having peace?

As we open our hearts and invite the Lord in, He will come and make His home within our hearts. He is just to forgive us and make us whole. Jesus longs to be the healer of our hearts.

Luke 6:45

The upright man out of the good treasure stored in his heart produces what is upright (honourable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil) for out the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.

What’s inside of us will eventually come out. What do we believe in our hearts? What are we speaking from our mouths? Do they line up with the word of God and Truth? Do we honour God with our lips but our hearts are far away? It’s good to examine our words and our hearts so that we are speaking words of life over our situations and over our everyday life.

What is the abundance and overflow of our hearts – Is it love, joy peace, words of hope and confession of faith or worry, negativity and fear. We can either be speaking life or death over our own lives.

Our mouths reveal our hearts are we filling our mouths with Praise and worship or worry and anxiety.

Psalm 34:1 says I will bless the Lord; His praise shall be continually in my mouth. Let our words be words of praise and thanksgiving, this is the best way to lift our hearts out of depression or anxiety, just by giving thanks in everything with a grateful heart.

Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but an encouraging word makes it glad.

Proverbs 13:12

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire is fulfilled it is a tree of life

Proverbs 14:30

A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy jealousy and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.

Proverbs 17:22

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

As you reflect upon these powerful thoughts in proverbs consider their wisdom. If we leave our hearts unguarded the issues of life can burden our hearts but as we allow the Lord to work in our hearts the result is a tree of life. A happy heart is good medicine!

Ephesians 3:16-17

May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].

May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love.

Jesus wants to take up residency in our hearts He promises to be with us always. To strengthen us in our inner man and ground us in His love. What a beautiful promise for our hearts.

He gives us the power to live our lives in the fullness of His grace and not in our own strength. With His help we can be all He has called us to be, most of all to know His love deeply in our hearts.

When we abide in His love we become secure in who we are in Him. Knowing the love of Christ is a powerful key to living a life of freedom and healing. Jesus first loved us and nothing will change that.  His grace and love make all the difference in our lives.

Prayer: Jesus I receive your strength and grace in my life today. Help me to not rely upon my own strength or my own way of doing things. I give you my heart, come and take up residence and dwell in me. Let your love be deeper within my heart today and always.

1 Corinthians 4:6-7

For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as [to beam forth] the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God [as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed] in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves.

What an amazing word – that Jesus considers us to be wholly filled and flooded with Himself – His light, His life. As we realize who lives in us and what we possess we are able to live out of this Truth and nothing by any means will persuade us.

This treasure we possess is Jesus! He is the way, the life and the Truth. Our joy is in knowing we are not on our own, He has not left us as orphans but He has come to reside in us and with us.

The power we possess is from God it is not of ourselves, this is a great comfort knowing that we can call on Him and He empowers us through our spirit man. It’s our part to rely upon Him to trust in Him with all our hearts, to believe that truly what we possess is treasure and to draw upon Him daily for all our strength.
