Time is flying. Here we are on the last day of another month....half way through another year. How important that we make each day count for the Lord and for Eternity.
We thank God for every opportunity to reach out to the boys and girls in Kenya, Uganda and indeed here in Northern Ireland. We continue to pray for fruit from our labours and for more opportunities to share the Gospel with the unsaved.
Joyce and Pastor Aringo have been communicating regarding a larger quantity of lessons being transported from our Nairobi office to our Uganda office which would make good use of the space and make it easier for Joyce to distribute lessons in her area. Pray that God will provide for the transportation of these.
As more and more centres enrol there is a need for our workers to travel more to visit them and distribute the lessons. We try to follow up the centres and be there to encourage them rather than just send the lessons and never see them, so pray that this important part of the ministry will remain possible as God provides.
Our next trip is drawing closer. We would really like to get into more serious planning for it over the next few weeks and ask that you pray that we will know wisdom and guidance as to the programme. We ask you to remember William as he tries to plan for some adjustments to the office. It is more difficult as the office has changed since we were there and so his original plans will no longer work.
This past week has been very busy as I was teaching and helping at the Holiday Bible School in our Church every evening and then brought the Children's talk in the morning service yesterday. The Lord really helped and over 90 children attended throughout the week. Please pray that the good seed sown will bring forth fruit and that we will hear the news of children coming to know the Saviour.
For William and I, our programme of meetings has now ended until the end of August when we will be at the Bangor Worldwide Missionary Convention. From now until then we will be continuing with other FML work and planning for our next trip but will not be available for meetings. We have some spaces for meetings during the first two weeks in September (contact us if you are interested) and then we are fully booked again until the end of October. We have limited availability throughout November and December due to other bookings so please act fast if you would like us to share with you then.
The countdown to our wedding is getting lower....we continue to appreciate your prayers as we take this next step in our lives and ministry.
