Crab Apples and God's Love

Last autumn I was given a jar of crab apple and clove jam. Mark has talked about it ever since, and I have been trying to find someone with crab apples so that I could make some for him.I had given up. Yesterday I got a text from Ethel. She had been given some crab apples while visiting friends near Belfast! I was reminded that God does care about even the small things that are important to us, and that He often answers in ways that we could never imagine!

Bible Study With A Difference

Mark and I had a wonderful opportunity/experience this morning. For several months we have had two Christian Chinese ladies attending church . Yesterday Ling contacted Paul Ho to ask if he and Mark could come to her house this morning to offer encouragement to a young Christian who had suffered the loss of a loved one. We were there for close to two hours. Paul interpreted for Mark, with Ling assisting from time to time. There were several times where Paul was obviously doing some teaching of his own, answering questions that the young Christian had. It was a blessed reminder that 'Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.' It doesn't matter what country we are from or what language we are speaking, when we are all God's children and indwelled by the same Holy Spirit!

Street Preaching

We had a good morning handing out tracts and street preaching. There were ten of us all together, standing at three different locations in the city centre. There was a Christian couple visiting from Scotland who stopped to encourage us and say how good it was to hear the gospel being preached. It was a great blessing to meet them. Mark talked the entire hour and a half that we were there.

A Busy Month

Hello! I'm sure that most of you can relate when I say that since I last posted an entry it has been busy, busy, busy! We had our holiday Bible club, protested a gay pride parade, had family up visiting, went down to visit friends and family, and have kept regular church activities flowing. In a couple of hours we will be going into the city centre to hand out tracts and do some street preaching (Mark, and other men if they are interested!). Below are a few pictures of our activities of the past month.

At holiday Bible club we have a store on the last day. We adults got a bit carried away with the shopping, and there were four tables full of gifts!

It is our desire for people with 'alternative lifestyles' to realise that the Lord loves them, and that it is His desire for them to be saved and live according to His word.

Me with my favourite person!

Uncle Mark and Connor. Connor and his sister Charlotte made a cake for Mark's bday. It is pictured belowed with their cousin, Henry.

Henry comes to stay with us several times a year. He and Mark have a great time. The younger boys in church are always excited when he comes!
