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:
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!
