Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4v6)
Praise God for an encouraging weekend! It was Ruth's 40th birthday recently, so we celebrated by having an open house over the Bank Holiday weekend. We had over 80 visitors! As I watched the children playing football in the garden (while I kept an eye on the barbeque!), my heart was provoked to give thanks. It probably wasn't the first time we'd had an open house since my struggles last year, but it certainly felt like it. Please pray for us, as Ruth and I are thinking about opening our home on Sunday afternoons during the Spring and Summer.
We were encouraged on Sunday morning by seeing Michelle, and then meeting her husband, Shaun, at the open house on Monday. Please pray that God would bless and provide for Michelle, her husband and their children, and that Michelle would be able to come more regularly on Sundays.
We were also encouraged to see Ruth with her kids, Sian and Callum. Please pray that God would bless and provide for Ruth, her husband Richard, and their children. Sian is currently unwell, but there was an encouragement while she was with us on Sunday morning. Please pray that God would restore her to good health.
Thank you for your continued prayers. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
