It was a great honour to be asked to sing and speak at two churches in America for the Memorial Day weekend.
Australia has been a military ally to the USA for 100 years. Memorial Day in America is specifically set apart each year to remember those who paid the supreme sacrifice in conflict, those who gave their lives for the freedom we have today and the pride and patriotism runs deep.
People have migrated from every nation on earth to call America their home and it is amazing to see how the fallen are never forgotten, no matter what skin colour or race they came from. I think that’s what makes America a great nation where people are free to work hard and dream.
The past two weeks have been so encouraging to see the interest in the work we have been doing for the past 30 years in Outback and Rural Australia. As I flew across the continent of the America’s I was also greatly inspired to keep going with the work God has called us to. Every church I sang and spoke in welcomed us back for more ministry in the future.
I must admit while looking out over the vast expanses of American wilderness and deserts I contemplated the challenge of doing an off road Harley Davidson crossing of that nation as well!! But I’ll need to get God’s favour and Kerrie’s approval before embarking on that project. But the concept excites me greatly! I’ve come home dreaming ‘Big Dreams’ and very grateful for the few weeks in America.
