We love Barry and Cheryl Webb and will miss them until next time God brings them our way. Yesterday our family drove the Webbs to Hartlepool England to meet Pastor Jonathan Vanderhurk for their meetings in Peterburgh, England. We enjoyed one last day of fellowship.
Today, we had an exciting Sunday despite my wife being unable to attend due to illness. We had 3 adult visitors and a child visitor. We also had a young lady back in church after a 2 year absence. Two of the visitors were from another country but it was nonetheless good to have them present this morning.
The young mothers in our church did well adapting to not having children's classes and we made do. Please pray for a quick recovery for Katie as we all not only miss her, but miss the ministries she fulfils at our church.
I preached this morning on, "Resting in Jesus" from Matthew 11:28-30. The Lord opened my mind to some things in a familiar passage that were helpful to me and I trust helpful to our congregation. The text is the passage that begins with.... "Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest."
Many of you have enquired about the property. Lord willing, we will be in it by the end of this next week. Everything is agreed. However, our solicitors need to agree a date for the completion (closing) on the property. Your prayers for God's grace upon entry are much appreciated. We will need to do a thorough cleaning, figure out the best set up for church, get works scheduled, sort the utilities, pick up the property outside,.... etc.
Thank you for praying with us and for us!
