About Vicky

‘Journey Redeemed’ is my story. A story of a messed-up life redeemed by a Loving and Powerful God who never gave up on me. A story that gives tribute to every person who has ever walked a step with me. You gave me hope to never give up. You taught me about unconditional love and gave me the strength to have faith again. You showed me Jesus in action, and now I can offer the same to the people around me.

Long Term Visa Solution Thank you for your prayers in this regard. I’ve found a way to get 1-year visas at a time instead of 3 months. With the 3-month visas came the extra problem that I had to go back to South Africa for my next visa run to get another 3-month visa. [...]

This Is Ministry!

2019-01-05T06:22:08+00:00

About two days into moving to the village the following words dropped into my spirit… “You have to win their hearts before you will win their ears” When you can barely speak the language there is only one way to win people’s hearts and that is through actions. Ministry is… Sitting with [...]

Stepping out in faith – Thailand here I come!

2019-01-05T06:22:21+00:00

Earlier this year I got to a place in my life where I started asking the hard questions, “Where am I going? And, “What am I doing?” I just realised  that I’m not living in my God created purpose. I was made to love the lost, to go and build God’s Kingdom in the most [...]

Emergency rooms & Beating hearts

I’ve been mulling over the following blog post for a couple of months now. It’s been simmering in the back of my head, and I guess it’s because it’s one of those hard questions that we all avoid. But here it goes… I was sitting in the emergency room at the Dr’s office (just [...]

Fear and Breakthrough

2018-08-30T12:33:10+00:00

Is your fear standing in the way of someone else’s breakthrough? In Acts 9, Saul has an encountering with God on the Damascus road. And we have heard many sermons about the Damascus road. But, what struck me most now, happens in part B of this story. God appears to a Disciple by the [...]

‘May the road rise to meet you’

2018-08-21T10:03:50+00:00

“May the road rise to meet you”. These words from an Irish Blessing has been lingering in my thoughts these last couple of weeks. And the picture I get is almost like those computer games where you need to move forward in a certain direction for the next section to become visible. Almost like [...]
