It is a wonderful promise we find in the Word of God that if two agree on earth then whatever is asked will be done for them. We know that more than two are praying that we can travel in July and more than two are praying that God leads us to the office of His choice. So we keep believing.
We desperately want to book our flights soon and are conscious that malaria treatment starts one week before travel. We would ideally want to travel around 8 or 11th July, so time is short.
The search for an office has made some progress and there are few possibles. There is one in particular that we feel quite drawn too, but again we ask you to pray that God leads very definitely.
We continue to be conscious that we are asking for big things. We were calculating roughly that for 3 of us to travel to Kenya for a few weeks and all the associated expense with this, to secure an office by paying the deposit and advance rent required and to be able to equip it basically with some shelves and also beds etc. we reckon we need around £10000!!! Yes, we are asking for big things but we have a big God.
Thank you for praying for the training on Thursday evening. The Lord helped and the next session has been brought forward to this week with a possible third session being considered before the team head to Poland.
Please continue to pray on for the market. Friday was fine, Saturday was probably our quietest day since we began in December 2008 - we sold only one item! But we thank God for His continued help and appreciate that we are coming closer to holiday time and many people are away at the weekends.
Please continue to pray for us, especially that we can travel soon.
