Friday to the Father - 12th August 2016

Jesus said: "This then is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven...' " (Matthew 6v9)

We're thankful for the last couple of weeks of holiday.  Being away from home and then having family visiting has meant that the blog has been quite bare, so my apologies for that!

My family were greatly encouraged during our week at the Carey Family Conference.  It was so refreshing to spend time with so many other Christians, learning how God has been active in their lives over the last 12 months.  We were well fed with teaching from the Bible; had many good laughs; and the kids really enjoyed themselves (as usual!)  

We were able to share news about the work in Welshpool and the church that the Lord is building, and were encouraged by the prayers and feedback of others.  Here's a picture from the barbeque on the final evening:

A couple of families from the conference then visited us on Sunday morning, so of course we then invited them to our open house that afternoon!  Praise God that we have a home that we're able to share with others, and we thank Him for all that He provides.

Please pray for the church as the holiday season ends.  I'm planning to increase the time I spend working for the church from one day a week to two days a week - please pray that the Lord will provide for this.  In a future blog post, I'll share how this work is currently funded.

Please pray for the families that are committed to the church community.  Pray that the Lord will provide for our daily needs.  Pray also that we will be guided in our outreach - we're currently considering a Christianity Explored course for teenagers.

Thank you for your continued prayers.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
