Advance Notice: On Mothering Sunday (16th March) we are going to have an all age drama and we need some enthusiastic volunteers. There will be one workshop before the day. No previous experience necessary. Anyone aged 5-95 years welcome. Please speak to Den or Pippa to let them know you are interested or for more info.
Sewing Machine Offering
Thank you all for your generosity last week with the impromptu offering towards buying sewing machines for the work of Fountain of Life. The total raised was £1,095.24 when Gift Aid and IOUs are reclaimed.
Sundar will be taking the money out in the next week or so and purchasing the machines for distribution to those they have trained up. Full details about FLM can be found at flmhope.org.
Dave and Gill Update
One of the main prayer requests from Dave & Gill had been for accommodation. Praise God that this has now been provided.: To quote Dave & Gill “We visited a block of flats in a central position to be told there were no short term fully furnished flats in the whole block, until the agent suddenly recalled there was just one and that the next tenant had just given back word. Within ten minutes we were speaking with the owner, a UK guy, and he showed us round a very nice flat that is well located for meeting people, so we took it and moved in next day, Wednesday.”
Their requests for prayer are:
- Settle in quickly, Gill's health to be fully restored,
- the flat to be a place of entertainment meeting people and place of peace and restoration
- Travels to be fruitful, more friends to come to the house of peace in far away town
- The development group to come together, it will gather every week while we are here and then we can see who emerges as able to think and care across the whole community here. Wisdom to coach well
If you don’t already receive the prayer and news email updates from Dave & Gill, then contact Justyn.
