HE HAS GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL WITH HONORS, GOT A DOUBLE DIPLOMA IN SOUND TECHNOLOGY AND MUSICOLOGY. AND IS NOW WORKING AS A SOUND ENGINEER. HE AND HIS MATES HAVE ALSO STARTED A BAND.

YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH GOD WHO STRENGTHEN' S YOU. I KNOW IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE IT NOW........BUT YAHWEH HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR CHILD'S LIFE AND IT'S A GOOD PLAN.
Michelle's message of 100% Faith! has been severly tried and tested since she began sharing. Keith and Michelle spent 2 years extensively travelling throughout Australia in a caravan, sharing at all churches, schools and groups. Michelle shared her saved at sea testimony and many came to a saving knowledge of their messiah.
In 1996, just as her and her husband were about to embark on ministry throughout the Asia region, their son Asher, who was then 2, was diagnosed with Autism. This was without doubt the most devastating news any parent could receive grievous time in Michelle and Keith's lives, as the couple also had 9 month old daughter Grace.
My mother Rachelle was a very intrinsic part of Asher's therapy and recovery from Autism. She assisted in his therapy, took him on training excursions and most especially spent alot of time with Grace, who by now was starting to really feel the typical effects of being the sibling to someone with a disability. She would sit outside his therapy room and answer all his questions - really trying to help him!
Michelle says "I really felt convicted YHWH/God was testing me to now live up to the message of 100% Faith! in him that I was preaching. We made a decision to cease our travelling ministry and pour all out efforts into our son with an early intervention program. We commenced a program called ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) which involved up to 40 hrs per week on 1 0n 1 repetitive training. We personally only did about 25 hours for about 3 years. It was extremely successful! We sowed the seed and God gave the increase.
I consider the next 5 years to be without a doubt the most challenging and difficult experience I had ever endured, surpassing my ordeal at sea. This pervasive and all consuming disability taught me a very different definition of 100% Faith! This message I can now share with all those Mum's and Dad's suffering with the enormous frustration and sense of powerlessness , when facing Autism is that the Bible makes it clear that God will never give us a burden that will cannot carry and that even if that burden seems overwhelming at the time, God also says You can do ALL THINGS THROUGH YAHSHUA/JESUS WHO STRENGTHEN'S YOU.
Most of our efforts between 1999 to 2008 were the approach I have taught about in the 6 part series. Going through breaking off all family and generational curses. Cleaning up all sin, rebellion and unforgiveness in my own life and walking the walk of sanctification through faith. The more healed I became the more healed Asher became as all these things are generational and habitual. Children don't learn by what you preach they learn by watching how you act. As the saying goes you are the book your children are reading.
From 1999 - 2004 I spent several years volunteering my time 2 half days per week at Asher's school working as a teacher aide to assist him and any other children in the classroom that required assistance. This achieved marvellous results. Both Grace and Asher attended small christian colleges from 2004-2009.
FROM 2009 TO PRESENT ASHER WENT TO LIVE IN PERTH WITH HIS DAD AND GRACE REMAINED WITH ME.
GRACE AND I LIVED IN ROBINA FROM 2010 TO 2014, UNTIL SHE MARRIED HER SWEETHEART LUKE.
LUKE, GRACE, ASHER AND I SHARED THE MOST AMAZING TIMES TOGETHER FOR THOSE 3 YEARS WHEN ASHER WOULD VISIT US ON THE GOLD COAST. I MARRIED 3 MONTHS LATER TO DAVID GUEST ON 15/2/2015. WE CONTINUE TO LIVE IN QUEENSLAND.
TEACHINGS ABOUT WHY THERE IS STILL SO MUCH SICKNESS, DISEASE, AUTISM AND DISABILITY AMONGST JEWS AND CHRISTIAN'S AND HOW TO HEAL YOUR LOVED ONE'S YAHWEH'S WAY
TRIBUTE TO ASHER GREGORY - THIS IS YOUR LIFE!
This montage is a tribute to my beautiful son Asher who turned 21. From the moment I became your Mum my life was filled with purpose and joy. Through our many struggles to help you be free of Autism, together we persevered and would not give up until you were healed and set free from this. My life with you was one of constant adventure and fun and would not ever trade a minute of it. All of my life's best memories have you in them. I love you with all my heart and soul and am so incredibly proud of the man you have become and what you have achieved. Love always Mum xxxx
