Remote Pastors Gathering

June 6th, 2015|

Baptist Pastors and their families travelled from every remote region in Queensland last weekend simply to be together, worship and pray, and make a few memories.

When I heard they were all getting together near Longreach, I did a dirt road trip on the Harley to spend some quality time around the campfire with them. These […]

Population Zero

June 5th, 2015|

The town of Morella is 70kms north of Longreach. It disappeared a few years back when the trains stopped coming. The town literally ceased to exist as shops and houses were all moved on but the well constructed Country Woman’s Association hall remained. It is now the only gathering place for families living on remote […]

Nashville Bound

June 1st, 2015|

It’s been an amazing year so far, and it’s bringing some new opportunities for us Skypilot boys, both as a band and as individuals. We’re all super excited to see what’s around the corner, and I’ve personally been praying about what these next few months would look like for me, as Jordan and Paige head […]

Longreach, QLD

May 31st, 2015|

The feedback from our recent Droughtland Rain concerts has been such an encouragement. It’s been such an honour to serve local churches and community groups in getting the word out that there is hope and help during one of Queensland’s worst recorded droughts. 80% of the State has been drought declared by the government.

At every […]

The local publican was a bit unsure about a Gospel concert in his pub. But he took the risk and said yes. That night his pub was filled with families and regulars who all loved the event.

Earlier that day Trentan Kruger and I had performed a concert and music workshop at the local State […]

Country Hospitality

May 29th, 2015|

We’ve been wonderfully blessed with some great country hospitality and incredible meals in the past week on a cattle station north of Longreach. Thanks to Ashley and Julie Zischke and the kids for letting us stay.

We had 70 folks turn up on a cold windy night in Aramac for a free BBQ and concert. […]

Reality of Drought

May 28th, 2015|

Times are tough out here. Tough for every living plant and creature. But when you talk to folks who live on the land they’ll tell you they’ve seen it all before.

Some of the keys to surviving are cutting back and living simply. Many have sold or de stocked their land.
Other keys are regular […]

Yeppon Event

May 25th, 2015|

The wind was too fierce to do an outdoor concert on the Yeppoon Beachfront Stage on Sunday afternoon so we ended up packing 200 people into the beer garden of The Strand Hotel, the biggest pub in town.

We finished our concert with a prayer for rain out west and by singing ‘How Great Thou Art’ […]

Chinchilla, QLD

May 24th, 2015|

We love the folks out in Chinchilla and it was privilege to be part of launching the new Cafe and Live Music night at The Purple Bean. Some friends of ours have taken over the existing Koorong Bookstore and now have the best coffee in town, with good food and Steve Grace photography on the […]
