Back in business!

So school has started long time ago, I've finished my teaching practice for this semester and right this moment (or this week actually) I'm working with Mission Adventures at the YWAM base Grimerud. It's a part time job I have all year round, and I just love it! I feel so blessed for being a part of something like this.
Today we were shooting for a new promo-video for Mission Adventures. -Or I didn't really do much, I was more like the assistants assistant or something :) But here are some pictures from the set. Audun is a great actor! -And Anders is great with Instagram ;)

Isn't she lovely?

This saturday a perfect couple decided to share the rest of their life together. 
It was beautiful and a lot of fun! 

Here's some pics that I will not take credit for. My wonderful friend Sofie has taken them, and I must say; she's quite the talent with the camera!

The beautiful bride, Line :)

They said YES, loud and clear :D

The happy couple

Celebrating with pretty girls :)

Lovely decorations!

The wedding party 

I'm very thankful I got to be a part of it!

Awesome as always!

Every Mission Adventures is great. Always different, but always great! 
This summer I've been to Durham City, about half an hour from Newcastle, England. Brought a bunch of crazy (in the best way possible!) youths from the west coast of Norway and we got to work with several wonderful people from several wonderful churches. 
We got to be a part of three holiday-clubs, a Fun Day in Brandon, evenings with youths/students, BBQ-parties, bowling, gardening, litter-picking and tons of other events.

This summer I haven't been the best photographer so I've only taken a few of these pictures, but luckily others has taken many good ones! I borrowed some of Fredriks pics (among others) and hope you'll be able to catch a glimpse of what an adventure we've been out on these last few weeks ;)
Flying Norwegian :) 

The Angel of the North :)

Now you're just somebody that I used to know...

Last thursday a tragedy struck my family. Again, I'd almost say. 
My sister, or my step sister, died. 41 years old.
It was sudden, but still not like lightning from clear skies. She had lived a hard life and tried many times to get her life back on track. 
I guess you could say she was a good person to everyone but herself. 

It would be a lie to say we were very close. Because we weren't. 
When my mother and her dad got married twelve years ago it was different. We got to know each other. I spent the night at her house, with her family/kids. We ate dinners together. It was like family. 
She's been through a lot of hard times since then...

The last few years we haven't really had tons of conversations, but still I'd say I knew her. At least some of her. She was really trying. I know she had Jesus and that's the most important thing. 

I know that it is better for her to be with Jesus than with anyone of us here on earth, which makes me think of sort of a saying (I think it's a chinese one?) that goes something like this: "when I was born everyone was smiling around me, but I was crying. Now that I'm going you're crying, and I'm the one that's smiling."

I know she knew she was loved!

 "...Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
- Luke 23:42-43

Makes Me Wonder

Sometimes I just wonder... What will the future bring? 
Or actually I wonder: What will God do? 
What will God do with my life that can possibly make a difference in this world? 
Maybe I'll just make a difference in someones world. 
In someones life.

I'm good with that.

As promised...

As most of you know I spent this easter in Latvia, traveling with Mission Adventures. It was awesome! I lead a team of 11 great youths with Ola Johannes to Vestiena. Actually they were 9 youths and two youth leaders, and we also had some cool translators, the point is; we all had a great time together!  
We got to spend time with wonderful latvians, went on house visits, did some practical work, had meetings in the towns culture-house, played with kids/youths and visited an orphanage. And, of course, we got to share Jesus with them! 
It was great :D - GOD is great!

And here's pictures as promised:

E-Waves i Irland

Så, jeg er altså i Irland i skrivende stund. Eller jeg ER i Nord Irland, men jeg ser ut av vinduet, over vannet, på The Republic of Ireland. Jeg trives. Mission Adventures er fantastisk. Menneskene som jobber med det er de kuleste jeg kjenner. De er min familie. Vi er samme type mennesker. Mennesker som digger Jesus, ønsker å se forandring i samfunn og nasjoner og som har det helt sinnsykt gøy sammen! 
Jeg får se en større mening med mitt liv. Gud legger noe på hjertet mitt og jeg vet at Han har en god grunn til at jeg er her. En mening med at jeg gjør det jeg gjør.

DET er rimelig fantastisk!

Btw: Rapport og bilder fra påsken i Latvia kommer etter hvert!
