29July – 7Aug Alba Iulia, Romania.

This last week or so has been challenging and exciting!  We have seen God at work in our lives and through our ministry.  Praise God for souls encouraged by hearing the Gospel message of Salvation!


We had 3 Children’s meetings – 2 in a town nearby called Daia and one at the OAC base in Alba Iulia.


It is so much fun with the kids but also serious as we share Gospel truths with them all through games and activities, ballooning, clowns, Gospel Magic and Sketch-board messages.

We also had a teen meeting one night at the OAC centre with Gospel magic and sketch-board.


During the day each of us on the team have taught the Romanian youth ways to share the Gospel using these above methods.


In the evenings we have been out in the city park sharing the Gospel with Gospel magic, flip-charts and sketch-boards.  We have been encouraged to see great responses at most of the open-air meetings with many taking literature and lots of discussions afterwards.  It was great to talk right through the Gospel with 3 young women last night who stayed for both meetings and to hear them say they would pray to trust in Christ for salvation when they went back home. Join us in praying they have or will do this!

Tonight (Sunday 7 Aug) I am travelling by train back to Vienna and then flying back to Australia around midnight Wed 10th Aug. Please check the “Calendar” page for my schedule of coming events.

Thanks for your prayers, encouragement and support.  Dave.


25 – 29th July – Alba Iulia – Romania.

We have enjoyed great weather every night until tonight (rained out) and have had some good teaching & training sessions and also outreach in the city park in the evenings.  Here are some pics to show you what has been happening…




21 – 24 July – Training and Outreach in Vienna.

The ministry in Vienna went really well.  Although we had a a bit of rain some evenings we were able to still hold street meetings and have good crowds at most of them.  Here are some pics that will no doubt speak louder than words.




15th July – “Baden in White” day. Lots of people dress in white and join in celebrations.  We dressed in white and used it as an opportunity to share the Gospel.


Here are some more pics that show you how the day went.





14th July   Outreach in Baden – Austria…

We had 2 outreach times.  Just before the lunch break and just before the going home time.  These were good times when there are more people on the streets.  This evening a group of around 20 teenagers from Singapore stopped to watch and listen to the Gospel presentation. They even videoed the message!  Afterwards 2 of them told me they are Christians and they stopped to cause their group to stop.  It worked! How amazing!  The Gospel message has no boundaries!


“REACH the VALE” – Working with OM and OAC in the UK.  July 2011

7-9 July  Our small team – (Left to Right) – John, Jerry, Megan, Carrie, Dave (& Gareth not in picture) – are part of a very large team working together with Operation Mobilisation and Open Air Campaigners UK.

We have had great opportunities to share the Gospel in various streets and towns in the Vale of Glamorgan – South Wales – United Kingdom. Open-air in Bridgend, Penarth, Barry and Cardiff streets. Plus door-knocking and surveys for a local church in Cosmeston, near Penarth.  We also shared the Gospel at a children’s meeting, a Bbq and a youth event. Praise God with us for the lives that have been touched.

3-7 July – Have been doing outreach in various places around the Vale of Glamorgan – near Cardiff.  (Pic above was taken in the main street of Barry on Monday afternoon 4th July).

2nd July – Stayed overnight with friends in the same street where we lived in Gloucestershire England.  Having an “Aussie BBQ” in their back garden for lunch. Then it’s off to Wales for a week and a bit of ministry in “Reach the Vale” with OM and OAC.  (More news and pics soon).

30th June – In Hong Kong airport for the 2nd leg of my trip to UK. Next stop Frankfurt (overnite) and then arriving UK on Friday to start ministry in Wales on Saturday. No in-flight movies (as machine broken) so $100 duty free voucher from Qantas instead + I got to sleep 6 hours! How good is that! God looks after His staff. But please pray for this six week ministry and follow my blog on www.teachandtell.org Thanks.

Hong King airport… 

I am on my way. Check the “Calendar” page for itinerary.



From 17 – 23 January I was encouraged to be able to minister at the SU Gospel Music Tent in Tamworth. Lots of people came to hear the great music and periodically (as the musicians needed a rest) I painted and preached a short Gospel Message to those in attendance.  Below are a few of the finished sketchboard “paintings”.
