Today we are planning; dreaming; thinking; praying for the work of 24-7 Ibiza.

'If we always do what we've always done, we'll always have what we always had.' That's the quote currently knocking about in all of our heads.

We want to 'Fully' proclaim the Gospel of Jesus, and figuring out new ways to do this.

Another day to check what apartments are out there and to go looking at a few.

Am currently listening lots to Switchfoot and Jars of Clay.

Wished i was at the final ever Delirious? gig too. That would have been immense!

Flat Hunting

So, just bringing you up to speed with what i'm doing at the moment. I'm still living at the Anglican House in the mean time, until i find somewhere else more suitable. I need to find somewhere for the beginning of January.

Saw four different places yesterday that were to rent, all around the Bay in San Antonio. A mixture of bedsits and apartments. Am hoping for a 2 bed flat, close to the Heasleys, and not too far away from the hustle and bustle of San Antonio. Am learning new words in spanish too, as many of the people i ring can't speak English, so i'm just making it up as i go...which tends to make for some awkward moments. All good though.

Cinematic Orchestra

When i was in LDN a few weeks ago, a friend of mine treated me to a ticket to see the mighty Cinematic Orchestra and it was such a great gig. I wasn't dissapointed. I think there's about 7 or so members, and they are so musically talented like you've never heard or seen. They had an orchestra there too, which, as you might not have guessed, are not part of the main group - it's just their name.

Here's a link on Youtube to see one of there songs 'All that you give'. It's an awesome song.

They finished with thier amazing song 'All things to all men'. UK rapper Roots Manuva sings on it and he was the special guest that night! Flipping awesome!

Elderly Prayers

I've been wondering recently at why it seems, in my opinion, that all the really amazing prayer warriors are the elderly? How many times have you heard it said...'Old people are amazing at praying, really faithful. They have all the time in the world to pray, so let's get them on board.'

I've heard that many times, and sad to say that i've used that line myself too during the run up to some important work or event.

But i wonder what we can learn from the older, more wiser generation of prayer warriors? What drives them? What motivates them? Does prayer become easier as you get older? Are they answered quicker?

I just sense the call to prayer even deeper...I think i'd like to 'get on it' in prayer NOW, rather than when i'm 70!

Tonight i will be living in my new, temporary 'home', just on the outskirts of San Antonio. I will be living in the downstairs annex of the Anglican Vicarage with a couple called Bob and Clare. They run the English speaking Church in Ibiza.

I finished all my packing today about 4pm and moved my stuff to my new abode. There are 2 bedrooms, a large living room, a small kitchen and a bathroom. It's just right and what i need.

It's strange being somewhere new, that isn't quite 'home' yet. I will be here until the first week of January, giving me both time to look for a place to live, and giving me time to save some money towards deposits and rent etc. I am hoping to obtain either an apartment or a studio flat somewhere around the bay in San Antonio. I really don't want to be so isolated as before, and much closer to the hustle and bustle that is San An.

I've been thinking alot about 'home' recently - not my home back in the UK (as i don't have one) but just the idea of having a place to call 'home'. Having responded to God's call to serve Him, i am learning to trust in God to provide for me the place that He wants me to live in.

My thoughts are that when it comes to following and serving God, you must learn to make your 'home' in God. This was a thought i had during the summer whilst living in community, but one that i've not explored deeper enough. Yet i sense God speaking to me about this whilst in this transition period. I think that one must know that ultimately, our home is in God and with God, and that He provides and gives us a place to live for a time that He sets. You see, when you know that your home is in God and with Him, the call to move becomes easier; you don't worry about owning somewhere; you learn to trust God when He asks you to move.

Ah, these are just thoughts as i begin a fresh part of this adventure.

It is exciting though.

Who will answer the Call to prayer?

Am hearing the Call to prayer ring in my I've never heard before. But it's a call to be part of an army; a military call. At least that is what i am hearing.

Your country DOES need you...and it needs you to pray like you've never prayed before!

I read this quote about the definition of the task of priestly intercession (from The Prophetic Intercessor by James W. Goll) and it's based from Isaiah 62:6-7

"An intercessor is one who reminds the Lord of promises and appointments not yet fulfilled."
"On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; all day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves; and give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem praise in the earth."

Isn't that amazing? We're to be God's secretary, reminding God to fulfil His Word to us. Wow! Are you hearing His call to prayer? For your country or for another country?
