Beaney's Newsletter (August)

Greetings from Perth!!

You will all be pleased to know that we have been having very English weather - lots of showers!!  We awoke one night at 3am with water literally dripping on us from the ceiling, the roof was leaking!  Mark's answer was to grab a bucket and go back to sleep!!!  Someone said to me the next morning that it was all good practise for outreach!!!

Life here in YWAM never has a dull moment.  As a family we have settled in a bit more to some sort of routine, if that is possible - I am learning that in YWAM you need to be able to adapt at any time!!  The children are really doing well and enjoying making new friends and loving all the wildlife here in Perth, we even saw some dolphins the other day at Swan River!!  We have all at different times felt homesick, but really know that where we are is where God is wanting us at this time.   The lectures are all very challenging - each weeks topic I think 'I should be ok with this one' and each time God brings new revelation and challenges to go with it!  We have both really met and seen more of our Father and its been great to study scriptures and learn more about His character.  We meditated on the scripture 1 Chronicles 28v9, this really spoke to both of us about being wholehearted and God searches our heart, serving Him with everything!

David Chambers put us in contact with someone he knew at Bethel, California and we have been going along weekly to his church.  Its been a great place to meet other Christians outside of YWAM and hear their journeys, they have made us feel very welcome and prayed with us, which has been really encouraging.

We now know where we are going for outreach…………Tazmania, Vanuatu and Samoa.  We will be working with the YWAM bases there, will let you know more details when we find out!!

Thanks again for all your messages, financial and prayer support, it really does mean a lot to us!

Lots of love from the Beaney family

We have been learning a lot about perseverance this year!!  In all that is going on around us, to keep focused on Jesus and allow Him to be our strength and our peace.  It has been a journey that has been very humbling and leaning more into God and trusting Him.

It was a sad day.... Mark was welding on the roof of a YWAM bus and a spark caught alight the interior and the bus went up in flames in seconds!

Taking Every Thought Captive

Monday 13th October 2014

Recently I've been having waves of fear and anxiety attacks that have been lasting for days on end.

I find myself thinking "I don't want to feel like this but I can't seem to shake these thoughts and feelings."
I mean seriously who wants to live a life full of crippling fear and anxiety? Not me!

You can listen to Matthew's testimony here too...
