Darwin greetings... the Australian Outback...

Well, it's official - i've now seen Australia... the outback of the Northern Territories is something to behold! Yep, that's me - holding a crocodile! ;-)
This sunday morning there were at least six languages spoken/sung in the meeting at the Northern Territory Congress... reminded me of the complexity of humanity and at the same time we were all able to put aside our cultural differences and fix our eyes on Jesus - celebrating our diversity! Wow! I'm praying God will continue to teach me how to transcend culture through the Cross... this day also reminded me of God's great heart for the whole world... "from every nation and every tribe... oh come to Jesus... His blood cries..."
The world for God.

That's awesome!

Is that final quote a lyric? If so, what song? It's really good.

My perspective from the kids/youth stuff from Darwin is now up at if you're interested or feel like you missed out being stuck with all the grown-ups! Was a privelege jamming some old salvo tunes with you!
