This is the final entry in our ‘Jungle Drum’ series (for now). Belinda returned to Australia in mid March 2016 – earlier than planned – due to visa issues. Please pray that she will return to her field assignment in South East Asia in God’s perfect timing.
‘What sort of voice are you looking for?’ My friend asked. ‘I don’t know, it’s hard to explain. Just one that, when you hear it, you can imagine it’s Jesus speaking’.

‘Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.’ The words of the old hymn are ringing true as I write this. After a weekend of goodbyes with many good friends and faithful supporters, the reality of leaving had finally begun to sink in. ‘What am I doing?’ ‘Why am I choosing to lose all these wonderful people from my life, all at once?’CONTINUE READING
