Wales 2014

By Anna Deuk

Hey I’m Anna, and those of you who know me, will know I’m pretty passionate about Wales.

I’ve been going on missions to Wales for the past 14 years or so, and these trips have truly transformed my life.

Each year the summer mission trip gets better and better, and it was an absolute joy to be a part of the team this year.

Okay, so a normal day on mission…

We start the day with devotions, really needing to feed on His word, as we’re doing mission by His strength, not our own. Then we split off into our lovely teams (schools team, care team, wonderful minibus drivers, connect team, CAT, sound and production team, special ops team, rugby team, clowns team – there’s more but I can’t remember them all). It’s always a blessing to serve in any way that we can, and just the beautiful sense of unity we have throughout the teams. Then, in the evenings, we have brilliant events going on. We have a ladies night, men’s beast feast; we help at youth groups, special rugby nights; and of course, there’s the incredible choir.

Connect Team

This year I was blessed to be on the connect team, and I sang in the choir. I love being on the connect team. It pushes me out of my comfort zone, and takes me to places where God wants me and uses me. We invite people to events, offer prayer, do some door to door work, prayer walk, listen to people’s life stories, and we’re always ready to share a testimony. Connect team used to terrify me, now I can’t get enough of it!


Singing in the choir brings me so much joy. Every night we see lives transformed by Christ. The songs are so passionate and filled with truth, and the soloists just shine as they praise Him. We’ve seen whole families being saved, hearts being comforted, people being healed, and people returning to the Father. There’s real power and anointing over these events.

Your Turn?!

I know a lot of you have felt like you’ve missed out, because you haven’t been able to make the summer mission. We are trying to do more mini-missions to Wales throughout the year, so please do pray about these trips; and if He’s calling you to go, say yes! You won’t regret it, and you’ll probably get hooked on Wales, I know I am!

God bless, and thank you for reading my Wales story.
