Thank you for praying for us over another week. We thank God for His help to myself and William as we shared at meetings on Monday and Friday respectively. We thank Him for the interest shown. On Monday evening the group of ladies I met with said they had a "few" things for our market stall. I was just delighted to see how much....as you can see from the photos below, the car was full coming home; with household items, toys, gift packs, clothes etc. A big thank you to the ladies. We are delighted to have had a really busy weekend at the market, and already quite a number of the new items have been sold.
This incoming week promises to be quite busy and I will probably be out of the office most days with appointments and places to be. We have been planning to go to the Christian Resources Exhibition in Belfast on Thursday and to attend a seminar which might be of help in our work, but at the minute it's looking like that might change. I also have a lot of Child Protection courses to mark, so please pray that I can get those completed.
William and I have a meeting to speak at on Friday evening and we are conscious that we need much prayer for that.
Our latest prayer letter has been emailed and those to groups should have arrived by post while those posted to individuals should arrive within the next couple of days. What an exciting prayer letter it was for us to write! Not only all of the news of our trip just before Christmas....but we have been able to make public our intention to purchase some land in Nairobi where we are trusting God to enable us to put up a purpose built property for our ministry. We thank Him for His leading and for His confirmation to us.
We are also excited to announce that Feed My Lambs has moved to Uganda!! The lessons have now arrived there. Please pray for Joyce as she begins to get application forms completed and lessons circulated. We have paid deposits on flights for Kenya in July and all being well we plan to spend a short time in Uganda.
These are exciting and challenging days for us and we continue to thank you for standing with us. We know more than ever that we need God to guide us as we follow the challenge He gave us to "enlarge the place of they (our) tent."
Last but not least, continue to pray for those connected to us who are unwell at this time. We are heartbroken at the news of yet another person who is dear to us being seriously ill. We trust God for His comfort and leave these precious people in His hands.
