Christmas Day evening in London

UPDATE

  • Happy New Year! What a blessing to reflect on God’s goodness over the last year and to look forward to the opportunities to serve God over the upcoming year.
  • One of Teri’s teachers from high school is here in London for a few weeks, so we enjoyed having her with us for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
  • We celebrated Christmas last week with a traditional British dinner of Turkey, Ham, Yorkshire Pudding, Sausages, Mashed and Roast Potatoes, Vegetables, Stuffing Balls, Apple Crumble and Custard.
  • Also, on Christmas Day, we attended a very nice service at Northend Baptist Church in Erith (a few miles away from us).
  • Here is a link to the Queen’s Christmas Day speech that you might be of interest to you.
  • On Boxing Day (the day after Christmas), we attended a children’s play called “The Tiger Who Came to Tea.”
  • Yesterday, Pastor and Mrs. Wayne Cofield from Whitfield Baptist Church in Dalton, GA were here in London on a long layover on their way to South Africa. Teri and I enjoyed fellowshipping with them and showing them around London.
  • Here is a great article by James Wilson on “The True Christmas Message Lives Forever.”

PRAISES

  • One of our supporting churches had to stop supporting us for financial reasons, but High Ridge Baptist Church in Kingston, TN took us on for support recently!
  • Several churches and individuals sent in some special Christmas gifts which were a real blessing to us!
  • We believe that we have narrowed down where we plan to minister here in London, and we hope to be letting you know more of details in the weeks ahead!
