My personal hero. My dad! It’s hard to believe he was only 18 years old when he left the comforts of home and family to go serve in Korea. He told me he was scared to death. They all were. They were kids whose mothers were making them dinner and doing their laundry a few weeks earlier. He said it never occurred to him to not go. This was the beginning of my father’s life of service. When he came home he continued serving. His wife and children. His neighbors. His church community. Anyone who needed help. He was always a glass half full kind a guy. He had the daily practice of gratitude long before mindfulness was in vogue. It’s just how he lived. Even with seven children and always trying to make ends meet, he felt he was the luckiest man on earth. He would see a sad story on the news and remark “poor bastard.” He truly took to heart other people’s sorrows. My dad had so many sayings. (“We’re going broke on bargains” “if the good Lord made anything better than an artichoke, he kept it to himself.”) The one I remember the most is, “there but for the grace of God go I.“ He never judged. Another adage he was fond of was, “Is this a great country or what?” He loved seeing people’s hard work pay off and dreams come true. December 8 will be the four year anniversary of losing him to heaven. He was just a pilgrim here living a life of love and service until God called him home. I miss him every moment of every day but he taught me so many lessons... not with words but simply in the way he lived. #mydadhero #lifewelllived #goodandfaithfulservant #veterandad #missyoueveryday

A year ago we opened the doors for those who wanted to be a part of different ministries:
1. Sunday School
2. Evangelism
3. Ushers
4. Cleaning
5. Youth Ministry
6. Music/Praise
And the newly added ministry: Celebration Team.
Today, we have the honor to serve and thank the Servants of God! Everyone of them, all 60, have true Servant’s Heart. They all L🧡VE the work of God.
We are truly blessed us with the best! •

Forever GRATEFUL for the mentorship...and friendship ...of @kathyhelou who is one month away from retirement at @marykayus . My 28 yrs with this Co. would have had a different look and DNA without her influence, love, support, encouragement. Her legacy will live on in each one of us. ❤️ #goodandfaithfulservant #nsdsummit2018 #mymklife #legacysisters

Parting Words of Wisdom: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.. we are all meant to shine as children do it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. As we let our light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same." #coachcarter #limitededition

What's next for AJ?? 🤔
After a couple weeks in Brisbane/on the Gold Coast (she hopes to hold a koala and/or feed a kangaroo! 😱), AJ's going home for the Christmas holidays and her 21st birthday 🎈🍰 #happyhappy
She's looking forward to the quick break, and then she's back here in Brisbane with NET Ministries.
However, come February, NET is sending AJ and her (new) team over to Cape Town, South Africa as the FIRST EVER NET Team to ever be there. She's pumped and privileged to be a part of this team and making history in this way #pilotteam
Parting Words of Wisdom:
"What a year. Thank you to everyone for an amazing year. It was weird coming into an all-boys school, but you guys welcomed us in and we couldn’t be more grateful. If I have to leave you with something it would be this:
Don’t settle. If you think you deserve better, you probably do. This rings true in relationships, friendships, and faith.
I’m not saying this because I’m a NETTER, I’m saying this because it’s true for me and I believe it’s true for you. Give God a chance. Seriously. What’s the worst that could happen?"
#longpost #shesnotsorry #welldone #goodandfaithfulservant
It’s Arla Jean, by the way

What's next for Parker?? 🤔
After travelling around the east coast of Australia and then bits of New Zealand with his fam (and celebrating his 20th birthday 🎈 🍰 #happyhappy ), Parker is heading back home to Canada 🇨🇦 and spending most of his time with his cat 🐈 Otis.
However, come January, he's flying back to Brisbane for round two of NET!! #secondyearvibes #liveyourlifeonpurpose (probs not Iona #soz )
He's looking forward to what his second year holds, but he'll definitely be missing the Iona community
Parting Words of Wisdom:
"'To truly gain knowledge you must experience new things.'
I want to encourage you guys to learn new things and be open to different possibilities. Live your life on purpose. And I leave you with the words of a wise Old Boy, and I challenge you to think on... 'I suffer therefore I am.'"

What's next for Wren?? 🤔
When Wren flies home, she's looking forward to working in retail or going to university. She's excited to be home after two years here in Australia 🇦🇺 and can't wait to go back to Chipotle, as well as spending time with her dogs, friends, and family.
Parting Words of Wisdom: "Find me, and I'll tell you.
But if you don't find me...
Thank you for a great year. I'll be praying for all of you. Remember to be the change you want to see, and don't settle for mediocrity because you are made for more. Sign up for what's crack-a-lackin next year ( #igniteconf19 )"

What's next for Cathy?? 🤔

‘Well done, you good and faithful servant!’ said his master. ‘You have been faithful in managing SMALL AMOUNTS, so I will put you in charge of LARGE AMOUNTS. Come on in and SHARE MY HAPPINESS!’ ✨
--Matthew 25:21 / 23

Shoutout to Kuya "Teodoro" who very willingly returned my 'lost' wallet *with coins and IDs*.🔊 Just to tell the story, this was left in a jeepney on a Saturday night. Tried to run and chase for it but still missed it for there's no heavy traffic *didn't really know heavy traffic would be a blessing in disguise *. Tried to convince myself that it would be fine and that I should just do what shall be done with the IDs in it.

Then received a chat message on a Sunday night regarding this 'lost' wallet offering ways to let me have it again.

Finishing the story, he made an EFFORT to GIVE this BACK to me.

Hi ma'am @iamdynaocampo 😁

"Well done good and faithful servant". Words I long to hear when I meet Jesus! How do I know what makes a good and faithful servant? Being in the word daily and allowing the Holy Spirit to teach and speak to me through God's word each day teaches me what Gods truth is and how to learn to live it out and become what God desires. Not all of us have the same gifts or the same opportunities, but God has placed us where we are and given us what we need to serve Him. The parable of the bags of gold in Matthew 25 demonstrates that it doesnt matter what we have but what we do with what God has given us that matters. Our gifts, talents, money, circle of influence...all are given by God and we choose how to use them. .
Lord, give me wisdom to use what you have given me to your glory and honor so that I may be a good and faithful servant with the things you have entrusted to me. I know that it is only through Christ that I can do all things.

Yesterday afternoon, as I was about to leave my parents’ home, we looked up and saw a single, white balloon floating very high in the sky. Who had it belonged to ? Had a child let it go ? Was it released in honor or in memory of someone ? Did it have a message attached to it ? I wondered.

I’m sure this balloon isn’t floating any longer and has already fallen back to the world. But for the minute we watched it pass overhead, it was refreshing to see something pure and gentle in the world. Our gazes were fixed on it.

This morning, I received word about how 25 October 2018 became a day of sad and celebratory tears. For what it’s worth—and to me—the balloon does now carry a message I’ll attribute to it, and because of this picture, it will always float high... purely and gently.

I truly believe that I am (& YOU are) FEARFULLY & WONDERFULLY MADE.
I am “Good Enough” in this moment, not because of what I’ve done, but simply because of WHO I am in Christ Jesus.
And I believe that it is important to savor the moment, to appreciate my blessings & accomplishments, and gain perspective. But I should not park HERE and be satisfied.
*
I believe that I (& YOU) have been uniquely gifted by God, and it is my responsibility to discover my purpose & use these gifts for His glory.
Not that I have it all together, but I strive to be “good & faithful” and continue moving forward. And I hope that, as I share my journey, I can inspire others to do likewise.

When I was in Virginia, considering whether to pursue a D.Min or a PhD, I called Eugene Peterson (whom I had previously met). He said do what kindles my pastoral imagination and perception the most. “Try reading the Russian novelists for a year or another. I once had Dostoyevsky on my calendar for a pastoral appointment every Wednesday. He helped me as much as anyone to understand my people.” Something I had not considered! “Maybe take some courses or get a degree in geology like James Houston (his colleague). Do whatever will stir your pastoral imagination and perception.” He encouraged me to continue reading poetry, and we talked about the poets we both admired, He never directly answered my question, but I learned a lot from him. Eventually I did a DMin though I still think about that geology option. The photo is of one of my favorite bookshelves. #eugenepeterson #goodandfaithfulservant #readpoetry
