We had Ugandan family for 4 stay with us last night, they are properly the most beautiful people ive ever seen! The mother asked me for a drink of water so i went to the cupboard an there was only mugs so i stared filling the mug up at the tap. Then i noticed a clean glass beside me so i tipped out all the water in the mug and started filling again. Her eyes just widened as i did this.

Sometimes in life we get so side tracked on big things that we lose focus on the little things and there lost. We were never called to fit in, to conform to the world's vision on whats right and wrong. We were called for a greater purpose and a better life to what this world can offer. Everything's about following your heart... well sometimes you need to grip onto what you know, what you know hurts, what you know SHOULD come first, what you know is the answer but your too stubborn to accept it. If you don't release your tears you become a slave to your past. Don't dwell on the past; If you give what you cant change to God, you will inevitably see how God has a bigger plan for you then you ever had for yourself. 

My Prayer; Lord God see my Friends, show them there's more, that there's a greater Love then what they know now. That they needn't try to gain acceptance from the world as they were firstly accepted and loved by You. When all else fail's show them you will never give up on them and be by their side. Give them a sense of worth and value because even if they were the last person on earth you still would have sent your Son, Jesus to die for them. Watch over them throughout life, as they pursue their dreams, as they, because everyone's human, endure the pain of divorce, the pain of death of loved one's, the pain of failure, the pain of worthlessness, the pain of violence, the pain of depression, the pain of broken hearts... Lord God help them know that you are the only way to eternal happiness, that nothing will ever satisfy the pain except your amazing Love. Give me opportunities to tell them how much better Life is when your by our sides. Thank you, for everything you've blessed me with and how you've helped me turn my life around. Amen

William Hudson O'Bree: We sure have been through everything thats humanly possible. God has an amazing way for you and I cant wait to watch you grow into more of a Godly man than you already are.

Millions of people around the world have no choice but to flee their homeland to escape persecution and conflict. Refugees seek asylum in other countries so they can rebuild their lives, but they are often unable to obtain proper passports and visas.

Refugees have managed to escape war-torn and repressive countries such as Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Somalia and Turkey, often risking their lives in unseaworthy boats, only to be herded into hellholes in searing heat. Once incarcerated, detainees are deliberately dehumanised—they are each assigned a number, officially addressed only by this number and required to wear it at all times. They are assembled via loudspeakers several times a day. As one of the workers at Woomera told the media: “It is not like a concentration camp. It is a concentration camp.”

Christmas Island continues to be used as an offshore processing/detention centre. Amnesty International Australia has visited the newly opened $400 million detention centre on Christmas Island and found it to be harsh, unwelcoming and an inappropriate environment for asylum seekers, many of whom are survivors of torture and trauma. Moreover, the remote location of Christmas Island means that detainees accommodated there do not have access to the same legal, health and counselling services provided to detainees on the mainland. Amnesty International Australia believes that the continuing use of the Christmas Island detection centre contravenes many of Australia’s international obligations and should be closed down.
