The last month has been very busy and stressful with all of our responsibilities, but the Lord has been so very good to us. We are thankful for His grace that sustains us and strengthens us to continue. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers.
This Sunday, we have the “Grand Opening” of a new church plant in Colchester, Essex. We have been working toward this day for nearly a year, and we are very excited about this new church getting started. Over the last month, we have been able to do many renovations to the building. Thank you to everyone who gave for this need. The Lord has provided all that we need to finish the initial renovations. As the building work and renovations slow down, we look forward to putting more of our energies into reaching out. I am very thankful for the good folks that God has brought to the church plant in Colchester and for Sam Quinn’s help with the work there. Please pray for God’s blessing on this new church in Colchester.
This past month, we enjoyed being able to spend some time in Sunderland at the annual Reach Conference to train young people in evangelism. We also were able to travel to Northern Ireland and help the church in Derry/Londonderry with a special outreach day to which several people came including some unbelievers. Please continue to pray for the work there and for James Wilson as he leads.
We continue to pray for laborers to go into the harvest fields of the world. I am currently helping a couple with their survey trip of Ireland. If you are interested in missions in Europe or church planting in North America, please get in touch and let me know how I can help you.
