GROW [NYC 9]

We realised on our last day, we had made no plans but had a good 8 hours to fill before heading to JFK. Both Jo and I had wanted to go to Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and had not made it. So we thought we these few hours to spare we would have a walk around….

Hipster [NYC 7]

Hipster: A mutating, Transatlantic Melting Pot of Styles Taste and Behaviour Today we moved venues and found ourselves down in Lower East Side. I really like this area, though the area seems to be a blend of hipster, low economy and Chinatown. Very different to Central Manhatten, much slower pace of life, a melting pot…

#CROSSEQUALSLOVE [NYC 6]

The Love You are Looking For   This morning Jo and I raised ourselves out of bed to get down to Hillsong NYC. I really felt Jesus set the message in my heart even as it was being spoken. Pastor @carllentzNYC spoke a message on ‘The Love You are Looking For’. I took no notes…

Of Rollercoasters, Velvetines & Impatience [NYC 5]

   Today we went down to Coney Island with the thought that we’d explore Brooklyn. Before we got there I introduced Jojo to Max Brenners.          The man has a vision, he knows what he wants to do.  Each day I have been here, I have had a vision of what I’d like…

 PROMOTION [NYC 3]

I feel today that God is speaking to me about the word PROMOTION, it just kept coming to mind as I walked around East Village/Union Square area. I absolutely loved this area of NYC. I guess not everyone’s cup of tea but felt like home to me. We’ve been having some great times here in…

Land of broken dreams [NYC 2]

We took a boat tour to Staton Island today. Our tour guide Joey spoke about how the immigrants had come to Ellis Island, full of hope but for some, it became a place of broken dreams. during the day, I stumbled across The Julliard School. It made me think of my dreams when I was…

I woke up like this [NYC 1]

6am. Park Lane Hotel I sat reading Isaiah 43 over and again, thinking about how I’d watched Exodus the evening before. There was a line in the film that connected with me.  As Moses stands before the waters, he says “You are no longer slaves, you are free”.  The scene is epic, Moses states this…
