Join with us in thanks - the following
is a small list of the many things for which we are thankful to God:
- UK - We were delighted to be invited to the Manchester Offices of SOPRA STERIA (Matthew's place of employment) to be presented with a cheque from the proceeds of their company fund raising for 2017. We were one of three charities to be chosen for 2016.
- UK - Matthew has completed his 2016 RUNTOTHEHORIZON challenge by competing in and completing 12 races of different disciplines over the course
of 12 months. He has raised over £3000.00 and exceeded his target. Thank you so much to all who donated to this project! We have been able to divide the funds between ZAMBIA Luminary School meals project and HAITI meals and clothing for LOVING HEARTS CHILDREN'S HOME. Check on how he achieved this personal challenge by reading his blog - RUNTOTHEHORIZON
Please visit our PROJECTS page to catch up on his final races, including the 'Santa Dash'!
- UK - We have finally moved house! What a turbulent time it has been, but we found another property quickly after withdrawing from our first choice and we moved in to a brand new home on December 8th!! Just in time for Christmas...
- UK - Thank you to those who have been praying for us as we have moved home after 34yrs. The sale of our house was quick and smooth, but the first property we chose to purchase proved to have too many issues and we reluctantly withdrew our offer. This left us technically 'homeless' and we moved in with Matthew and Yvonne for 3 weeks. We were able to spend the rest of the time on Anglesey at a niece's converted chapel. Colin took very ill during this time and we spent many hours at the A&E department in Bangor hospital. He recovered extremely well and we praise God for watching over us during that anxious time. Thank you to those who prayed!
- UK - LINK BUILD 'away day' in Saddleworth was a wonderful morning followed by lunch in the local village Dobcross. We enjoyed our 'leaders' interview' session with IMPACT church and Elijah and Hayley Boswell, followed by encouragement 'sound bytes' by Colin, Sonny and John. As always, Matthew leads our time and steers us through a path of timings; he is also responsible for the Media presentations.
- UK - LINK BUILD follow up event went well with five churches coming onboard with this initiative. We also have now planned an 'away day' for the leaders. There are another two churches praying about joining. We have been impressed by the speedy connection with which these leaders have bonded and already there is interaction and mutual support in place.
- UK - We had good morning launch of LINK BUILD, a new initiative, to help, advise and support church leaders. Many were encouraged and blessed in being able to join with other leaders of like mind. It was also good to see they interacted with each other and possible future mutual help and benefit will occur to strengthen all involved.
Pray with us!
Thank you for your prayers - the following
is a small list of things for which we would currently appreciate your
- COLIN's annual Spring teaching trip to BSM, Latvia 1st - 7th April teaching the book of Acts. Pray for health and anointing to bring alive the word of God. Also good travelling.
- LATVIA/UK - it is a great pleasure to welcome Danny and Damaris Pedraza - Principal of BSM Latvia - to a time of rest at our new home and some ministry in local areas. We first met these wonderful Argentinian missionaries to Europe some 20 years go in Minsk, Belarus, and God joined our hands and hearts together to what has become a vital ministry input into the nation of Latvia. Please pray for their refreshment and vision of Latvia to be caught and supported.
- LINK BUILD - upcoming seminar - CUTTING EDGE - Saturday morning 13th May; guests speakers Fred and Valerie Bennett, Memphis, TN U.S.A. This is an open time of refreshment and encouragement not only for the LINK BUILD churches, but all who desire to restore their personal cutting edge!
- COLIN AND JUDITH - three week USA itinerary, 8th- 28th June - amazing God filled ministry, good travelling through four states and smooth flying and on time flight times!
