YWAM Mendoza

Sadly, Argentine Airlines cancelled Friday's flight(!!!) and so I am unable to visit and see for myself the way YWAM Mendoza ( Youth with a mission - a young people's missionary model originating in the USA) and reliant upon their website which speaks of various engagement strands including:

Counselling Ministry

¨Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.  It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.¨   Revelation 22:1-2

Our vision is to form, equip and train leaders and counselors in the healing and restoration of people, families, communities and areas of society.  We make known God´s heart for counseling through giving from what we have received and experienced through Him.

Areas of society that we aim to affect are:  hospitals, prisons, rehabilitation centers, children´s homes, homes for the elderly, people living on the streets, mental health institutions, neighborhoods, churches, communities, and families.

Our ministry offers:

External and internal seminars- 1st, 2nd, 3rd levels

Training and Prevention workshops

Discipleship Training School (DTS) with Counseling focus

External Counseling School

Internal Counseling School

A project that we would like to see in the future is establishing a home to accompany those suffering from violence and abuse, those who are coming out of prostitution, addictions, families with severe dysfunctional issues, single mothers, etc.

Sabbatical in summary...

My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’ 
Oh God, can those words be for me too?
How I long to hear them!
I’m not Moses, but I’m also on a journey – trying to follow Jesus.Some days, life seems like an unmarked wilderness,
and I’m not sure which way to go.
‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I hear you Lord. Help me to trust.Other days, I’m so busy that I don’t stop to listen.
I’m stressed and distracted and frazzled.
‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I hear you Lord. Help me to pause and take time for you.Then there are the days when I do remember.
I walk restfully in your presence.
How different those days are.‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I believe you Lord. Those words are for me. 
Your presence does go with me and give me rest.
Thank you Lord!Amen
Richard England

Sabbath rest....

As I reflect on my sabbath rest - my sabbatical - these questions from Peter Mead ( Scripture Union daily bible study) got me thinking....When you stop to think about what is on your to-do list, what are the first things that come to mind? Do you trust God with these things?
Do you trust God enough to take a day off?Are you striving to please God for salvation? Rest in what Christ has done.
Are you stressed as you strive in your work, even in your work for God?
Resting can be the ultimate declaration of trust! Let rest remind you of God’s goodness towards you and trust God's faithful provision!Peter Mead

Beginnings...

A journey begins with one step and (with some trepidation) I start my sabbatical.
The hope?
To rest, have time out to reflect on calling,  ministry and what it might look like in the future - personally and within the context of Ruthin....
So, a prayer:
Loving God, in my journeying and my resting, in my listening and or reflecting please guide me and lead me afresh to the light of your truth, Jesus.
For I ask in His name...
AMEN.
