Two weeks? Seriously! I cant believe i've only been here two weeks it honestly feels like a month! We have been so busy! A typical day here is 6am morning excersise then 8am cleaning(for 20 min)then at 8:30 we either have worship or prayer, then around 10:30 we have lectures until 12:30(which is lunch) then almost everyone has work duties where i dont have work duties till 5. So i have a little break (usually i take a nap haha 6am just doesnt work out so well for me) Then i have work duties ..the kitchen until 7:30 and then another set of lectures and then bed. So yes Very busy..weekends are free for the most part which is fun! Anyways the first week we heard from Peter Brownhill on the character/nature of God..REALLY GOOD teaching. Peter brownhill started YWAM-perth. Hes an amazing guy! Then we heard from another leader here at the base Ari Sloot on Repentense and Forgivness. Which was also very intense and good! This week is intercession...which is lead by my leader Anders. Should be amazing! Anyways things have been going super well met some awesome girls that i'm absolutly in love with they are soo great!! Everyone here is so nice and so down to far my favorite part (besides the beach) is Base worship..its basically everyone on base worships monday morning..its always incredible!!

I'm really missing everyone already! Gah and its only been two weeks!!!!! This is definantly going to be a long 6 months!! OH my goodness i cant believe i'm here for months!! WOW i think it just finally hit me! ANyways God is good and i know i'm suppose to be here! Soo I'd love if you could all keep me in your prayers and i'm still trying to raise money for outreach. So prayers would be soo wonderful! I miss you all very much!

The 6 months will fly by and be over with before you know it....besides....Josh now lives in your room!!!! :-) Glad to hear all is going well. What an exciting time for you. Enjoy it and blessings. We had desert and coffee at your parents house on a little wine. They were watching old "puddin toes" for the afternoon.

You are in my heart and prayers all the time dear one. What amazing things the Lord has in store for you. So very proud of how brave and fearless you are in Him!
I can't wait to hear how your week of intercession goes?

Way to go Jena! I have a dot on my visitors map from the west coast of Australia. You are da'woman! Thanks. Ann and I think about you often. Charge on!

Jenna love!

I just randomly thought of our fake eyelashes. HA. You are too much fun, "If you just realize, what I just realized." (Man Voice)


I miss you sweetie! I can't believe I won't get to see your beautiful face for a very long time! :(

Love you!

Jenna, your teachings already sound powerful. Boy does this schedule remind me of Tim's at Bethel "WarCry", well I guess it's because Tim and June are old YWAMers from way back when. Ha! 'Work Duties' sure sounds very familar too, ask Josh!

I hope you get "Paul Hawkins" to lecture, he's from CO, but is one of the main teachers in YWAM and travels to most bases, he's huge in the ministry and is so amazing Jenna.

Bless you and enjoy the rest of your week.

Oh ya, Strider gets a dot on his visiter's map before the Auntie does, hey what's up with that?? :(

I'm jealous, I want a hit from Perth too, that Strider thinks he's so cool... ha! ;)

Strider said...

Wow....negative vibes from your Auntie! By the way, thanks for the ping. I'm looking good on the world map!!!!!!
