It has been a difficult week for us as a family with the passing away of a very precious uncle....my dad's brother. We have many precious memories of a special man and can hardly believe he has gone. Thanks to those of you who have contacted us to express sympathy and assure us of your prayers. We are thinking especially of my cousins and their families in these difficult days.
As a mark of respect we closed the market stall this past weekend. We will reopen on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th as normal.
Tonight I will speak at a ladies' meeting in Belfast. There has been some disruption around the city in recent weeks, so am trusting that I have no problems on my journey.
We postponed a clothes collection last week as we were spending time at the hospital with my uncle and weren't available to be around for the collection. This should be fitted in within the next few weeks.
We continue to appreciate your prayers for us as a family and also in the work in the days to come.
