“Gatecrashing” by Brian Heasley
A really interesting read, with a powerful message to challenge all Christians to pray more and the importance of praying out loud. Brian and his team head out on to the streets, nightclubs, bars of Ibiza to offer prayer, practical help and kindness to mostly young people who are there to have the best holiday of their life, which generally meant getting a bit messed up. There are some great stories and lots more about the 24/7 Prayer movement to be discovered on line if you feel you want to know more. It’s an inspiring book about prayer and mission in truly difficult circumstances.
"Is that really you God?" by Loren Cunningham, Janice Rogers
This book is the story of Loren Cunningham and his family and their calling to missionary work all over the world. He had a vision which led him to start YWAM (Youth With A Mission), but not only that it’s about taking time to really listen to God.
‘We can hear His voice once but still miss His best if we don’t keep listening’
‘We can hear the Lord more clearly if we come to him with a clean heart’
I really enjoying this book, an amazing testimony of God’s faithfulness when we bow to Him.
