Transfer in Doha

We’ve arrived safely in Doha and now sit and wait for our next flight. I really enjoyed the first flight – the Boeing 787 is a beautiful aircraft and a pleasant flight. Our next flight is aboard the Airbus A380, an aircraft I’ve wanted to fly aboard for many years now. The geek in me…

London Bound…Again!

Once again I’m off to London! A few hours ago I climbed aboard my Qatar flight toward London with the primary purpose of attending my friend’s (Taryn’s) wedding. While in the UK I will also be visiting other friends (Dean and Carmen) and having a bit of a holiday alone. Further more, I’m accompanying Gaby…

Outside In

We had a great prayer meeting at the Renown Church, Edenvale Campus on Wednesday morning (2015-05-27.) We prayed about a number of things, but there was something that really stood out to me. It was something that Matt said while he was praying – I can’t remember his exact wording – and a thought really…

An Idol in My Life

Last week Matt preached an incredibly challenging and inspiring message entitled “My Plus One is Different From Me”. If you haven’t heard it, I’d suggest that you give it a listen. And if you have heard it, just listen again – it’s great! Although I paid close attention to the message in both the morning…

Life is unfair. We all know that. And I’ve actually had enough of being put down by the unfairness that is inherent of life! Life’s unfair, get used to it! That’s an expression I’ve head far too often. But how much does this help when you’re in the situation? Nothing at all. Why do we…

For many years now I’ve wanted to go on a mission trip with my church, Highway Church. A few years ago I had planned to go and started the process, but ultimately could not go. My desire to go sort of ebbed and flowed since then. This year was one of the years where I…

Travel Technology

My friends were scheduled to land at 06:35, but their flight was running about 20 minutes early. Not a problem though – my bus was due to arrive early and I was at the airport just a bit after 06:25. As I was coming up the escalator to the terminal I got a text to…

But He loves them anyway

On Friday night (Good Friday, 18/04/2014) we held a stay awake for the youth of Highway Church; Double Impact. One of our late-night activities was to hold a Tenebrae service. The service moved through the different things that Jesus had to endure on His way to the cross. Not the physical things, but the emotional…

Does God always give back?

A little while ago God challenged me to start giving more money as an offering to Him. It started with one project’s wage, but God soon prompted me to give Him a whole lot more – basically everything that wasn’t my regular, base income was to go to God. My response was: “That’s fine, but…
