We are currently at youth camp in Wales. This is our third year to partner with Brimpton Baptist and Saron Chapel for youth camp. It is always a great time of fun and spiritual growth. The theme this year is “Marvelous Grace”, and it has been a joy to meditate on God’s grace to us. Please continue to pray for strength and wisdom for the workers, safety for the young people, and for God to save and change all of us.
We had a very good weekend this past Sunday at Downham with our bring and share lunch following the service. We are progressing through the book of Job, and I believe it is helping all of us to have a more biblical understanding of suffering. Also, one of the young men in the church started leading our music, which was a real blessing to me and to the whole church. I am so grateful for all the willing volunteers in our church and for all the work they do.
Also, this past Sunday, a gentleman named David was baptised at Northwest Baptist Church. It is great to see people taking this step of obedience. Please continue to pray for Pastor James and the work there. James also viewed two more buildings for the church, but there were a few issues with both such as lack of parking and structurally not being in the best condition for a church.
