This is Dubsy.

Dubsy has been my housemate now for over a year and he's become my best friend in Australia. He is far and away the most generous person I have had the blessing to know. He's helped me out with rent, bought me breakfasts, lunches, dinners, Mcflurries and if I've ever tried to refuse a cash gift he'll just go and put it in my bank account and threaten me not to return it. He drove me to the pharmacy when my eyes were swollen and made me laugh about it. He lent me his car when I needed it. He gave me a wakeskate. He let me and my family ride the cable for free. He bought us a lawnmower and a strimmer and used them regularly. He's dropped me off and picked me up at Brisbane airport at very unsociable times. He pays for people to come to Zumba. He paid for the rent of our extra room when my sister came to stay. When he went to buy a push bike, he bought two so he could give one away. He buys me tissues when I'm sick and chooses the Aloe Vera ones not the cheapies. And he never ever makes me feel in his debt although I know for everything he's done for me I always will be.

In short, his genuine serving heart is incredible and he blesses everyone around him.

Well a few weeks ago Dubsy left for a six month adventure. He started with a two week trip to Cambodia (more about that later) and is now at the start of his Discipleship Training School with YWAM in Costa Rica. He's having an awesome time and I know everyone there will be frothing on knowing him by now. Please pray for him as he continues to talk to, listen to and get to know God. And please pray for his safety in Costa Rica and wherever he goes on outreach.

Before he left we threw him a kick ass going away party complete with Dubsy moustaches for everyone to rock plus we sold Dubsy memorabilia to raise money to support his travels. If you want to buy a Dubsarica mug for $10 let me know! Derek's got a sweet moustache montage from photos he took over on his blog: Derek's Aus'ome Adventures (he's a dab hand with his camera that boy).
