THE PAST 12 MONTHS have been an exciting and inspiring time as a network known as Northern Tribes has been forming. Northern Tribes exists to facilitate indigenous and non-indigenous Christian leaders working together to create change in the Top End of Australia. This network of like-minded people have a vision and mandate to see God’s kingdom established in love and power in the Top End, particularly amongst the indigenous tribes of the land. Northern Tribes seeks to encourage and support people called to partner in this vision through monthly gatherings at the Youth for Christ facility in Darwin, with worship, prayer and apostolic teaching.
At a recent gathering we were greatly blessed by a team from Arnhem Land who ministered through song and dance. The Holy Spirit moved powerfully in our meeting when many were healed including the wife of a prominent indigenous leader who had been deaf in one ear from birth. Praise God!
