We had a “Good Friday” service, as most people have work and school off that day. 38 people came out for the service.
I had a good conversation on Friday afternoon with a man who I met while going door-to-door. Continue to pray for Paul and for God to work in his life.
On Easter Sunday morning, we had 49 in attendance. There were no first-time visitors, but we did have several people attend who have not been in a little while.
Sunday night, we observed the Lord’s Supper together. It was a very special time of reflecting on the Lord’s death and then sharing testimonies of God’s goodness. I think everyone was very blessed and encouraged by the service.
After the service on Sunday night, we drove part of the way up to Bury (north of Manchester) to attend a fellowship meeting on Monday at Bible Baptist Church. It was good to meet up with other pastors and people from across the country and hear what God is doing.
We drove back home yesterday evening, stopping off at Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare.
Tomorrow Carie Cuneio heads back to America. She has been a real blessing to us and the church over the past week, serving and helping in the ministry.
I just saw an interesting news article that calls Lewisham, the London borough where we live and minister, the “least peaceful” place in the UK. Clearly this area needs the life-changing gospel.
