Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.
— Zechariah 4:10

In recent weeks I’ve had the privilege to stand on the stages of the largest concert venues in Australia, before over 45,000 people. I’ve sung my songs in Darwin, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney serving the Graham Tour with Franklin Graham and artists from the USA. Trentan Kruger and I got to fly on planes and stay in motels and turn up at the backstage entrance of stadiums with ALL ACCESS tags around our necks. We got to take part in the morning prayer and Bible studies with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association team. We got to do sound check with a world class production team and look out at the thousands of empty seats ready to be filled. It was an incredible experience. Watching as hundreds came forward in response to Franklin’s invitation every night and counsellors assisting in prayer and encouragement.

And then when its all over…. Its back on the road doing what I’ve loved doing for 34 years. About 45 people turned up the the Two Rivers Aboriginal Church last Sunday night ready to lift the roof off with worship and praise!!! Pastor Joey Day welcomed us and the presence of the Holy Spirit filled the small historic church. Nearly everyone in the place came forward for prayer. People hungry for more of God’s love and grace in their lives. It was a great night of ministry.

From big city stadium crusades to little country churches… the message never changes. What an honour it is to see people reconciled to the Father’s love through faith in Jesus.

Never despise your day of small beginnings. Always be willing to go to the smallest of places to tell people they are important to God… Just as they are.

Thanks so much for your support.

Godspeed.
