The last straw was the Facebook message I received. It was a good straw, as far as last straws go. A sweet friend messaged to ask how I “was really doing, and not just what she’s reading on Facebook or the website. Really.”

A caring friend will do that—recognize that you’re camouflaged under the social media facade and call you on it. Looking back over my blog posts and Facebook and twitter feed, I can see that my language changed; I became more cautious and less candid. Continue reading

He’s now staffing a DTS which means he will be leading an outreach team of his own. It’s just been announced that he and his co-leader Elisabeth will be spending 10 weeks in Uganda and South Sudan!

The day before Christmas, somewhere between baking cinnamon rolls, and trying to remember if I have enough gifts for each child I have, there was a knock at the door. With flour on my hands and down the front of my shirt, I open the door wondering, “Who shows up here the day before Christmas and I hope this won’t take long.” Continue reading

DSC_0526Below is a guest post from our son Jackson, who recently completed a Discipleship Training School outreach. We are super proud of him!

 

The main reason I wanted to do a YWAM DTS (Discipleship Training School) was to find my purpose and calling. I mean, I am fresh out of high school, I live in South Africa and I have not even applied to a single college. You have no idea how many times I have been asked, “What are you doing next?” I was stressed out from the pressure because dude, I really like surfing.* Continue reading

prickly2This is not a very merry Christmas and good tidings post. Maybe it’s tidings, but they sure don’t feel good.

Do you know when you hear the voice of God leading you to do something, go somewhere, speak to someone, and you do it? And crazy, cool things happen. And it gives you all the feelings and you float around all day in a cloud of awesomeness? I like when that plan comes together.

Usually, I hear pretty well and it leads to miracles and all sorts of fun. But I have to tell you, either I heard completely wrong or God just played an awfully mean trick. Continue reading

It’s still burning now, almost 10 hours later. Helicopters with water buckets and over 100 firefighters are battling this blaze. The wind is ferocious, making this fire spread like…well…wildfire.

You can't get AIDS from giving hugs. So we gave loads of hugs.

You know what’s awesome? Miracles. Those are awesome. On Friday, a group of us from YWAM hit the streets of Fish Hoek, in search of people who needed prayer and healing. We didn’t need to go far.

We pulled the car into the False Bay hospital parking lot. No sooner had we stepped out of the car when we ran into two women walking along the sidewalk.  And the lady who limped from her car into the hospital. And the lady with a pin in her hip who could barely walk and the man who had been beaten severly. And…and…and. We prayed for them all. In total that day, we saw 15 people walk away completely healed and three people were introduced to Jesus.

Yep, I ‘d say that was a good day. It’s so fun when God shows people how much He loves them. And He uses us to do it.

We found round trip flights for the wicked cheap price of $890 per person and one sweet friend has already sent money for one ticket! If you are looking to be a blessing–look no further–the six remaining Quists will be overjoyed at spending Christmas with family and friends.

watercolors1Perfect weather. Friday afternoon, Halloween weekend. Downtown Cape Town. We set up a tent in a little space in one of the busiest areas of the city: Greenmarket Square. Vendors from all over Africa try to convince tourists they need to buy pricey ostrich eggs, hand painted canvas and leather belts.

I have never done ‘prophetic art’ which is where you sit across from a complete stranger, ask God what He wants to say to that person and then paint a picture or word about that message. First, I don’t paint, draw or have nice handwriting. So you can imagine my surprise when people would clutch their paintings and swear to frame them. Continue reading

The principal of the school actually gave Jackson’s YWAM team their own classroom to use. Every day they met with students on a voluntary basis to share Jesus and pray with them.
