An invitation to you!

But let me first tell you!

I have finally been to Namaqualand, and that in the correct month!

So, where and what is Namaqualand? It is an arid region of Namibia and South Africa, extending along the west coast over 1,000 kilometers (600 mi) and covering a total area of 440,000 square kilometers (170,000 sq mi). It is divided by the lower course of the Orange River into two portions – Little Namaqualand to the south and Great Namaqualand to the north.

It was a great privilege to celebrate mom and dad's 45th by hitting the road to the land of flowers during the auspicious month of August. They were blessed by a good old friend and I was lucky enough to tag along (mostly to open rusty farm gates for the oldies!)

Well done Mom & Dad for sticking it out! You have shown this generation that marriage is still sacred and it is possible to stay one! I appreciate it so much.

"It will be a new day for us when we put away false notions and foolish fears and allow the Holy Spirit to fellowship with us as intimately as He wants to do, to talk to us as Christ talked to His disciples by the Sea of Galilee. After that there can be no more loneliness only the glory of the never-failing Presence. A.W. Tozer

I have been counseling children and couples online the last few weeks. I so appreciate the quote from Tozer above. It is a very deep truth that few really enjoy. I had incredible breakthrough with one of the kids. After another 90 minute session today with a couple in trouble, I realized something afresh.

To say 'I cannot forgive myself' is to rob myself of the wonderful freedom in Christ that comes from his invitation through conviction to me.


Dear family, friends & sponsors

YWAM will be praying together this month of September. Many of us will gather, fast and pray 1, 2 & 3 September.

As the invitation to us from the Global Prayer Initiative stated:

"God has positioned us across the nations through the past 60 years in an extraordinary way. Despite current circumstances, doors are open to us everywhere both physically where we are and online.

The Holy Spirit has continually been speaking to us as YWAM over the past decade to prepare for great harvest, multiplication and meeting the needs of multitudes. We are grateful for those who have initiated prayer on social media platforms during this time. May this continue and multiply as the Holy Spirit leads in diverse ways and forms across the world so eventually, we have every time zone continually covered in 24/7 prayer.

We believe this is a season of global intercession for us to align and deepen our understanding of God and His Character and to receive fresh assignments and anointing for the days ahead.

The Founders Circle elders together with other YWAM senior elders across the world have sensed an urgency for a global time of prayer with fasting.

Would you join us?

YWAM will follow suggested guidelines named


Not a YWAM'er?

I invite you and your church, to join as 20 000+ Missionaries come together in prayer in nearly every nation on this planet.

- Pray for them that they will HEAR GOD clearly.

- I invite you to pray with zeal for the missionary you support. Don't know what to pray?

Ephesians 1 is a good place to start!

- I ask that, seeing that you are on my newsletter, that you will pray for me too.

As you know, much changed for me in the recent past. With the fact that I cannot go back to Thailand, and lets throw in Covid for a moment too - it is change all the time. I know that Stilbaai is the correct place in this COVID season. I am working on a project and it REALLY helps to be here while doing it (online).

- Pray that we RE-TAP into the Missions Heart of God as we seek His face together for the sake of the world and how we can play a part in the great commission to make disciples of all nations. May God confirm your call. May you hear Him speak with great clarity as He perhaps reveal NEW THINGS in this NEW SEASON seeing that we as a global church have entered a new era in our generation.
