The blossoms on the trees, the flowers in our garden and the hay fever medicine have all come out! Spring has arrived in London and I am loving it! The sun is shining and people are happy on the streets and on the buses and tubes – what a difference the weather can make!
This past month has been quite busy. One of the things that I have been a part of is our annual Mums & Daughters Tea Party. We put on this Tea Party for the Mums & Daughters that attend our church but also as an outreach event for the Mums and Daughters in the nearby community. We spoil them with amazing treats as well a short talk on instilling Godly values in their relationships. This talk was focused on how to communicate with your teenager.
We’ve taken our teens twice now to a Saturday night youth event called Soul Survivor Saturday Celebrations. These evening are a time where hundreds of young people get together to spend time worshiping God, hearing from His Word, and waiting on His Holy Spirit. The first Saturday that we took some of them we weren’t sure if they would enjoy it or want to come back but by the end of the evening one of the teens approached us and said “for my birthday next month, I want us to come back for the next Celebration evening!” We did exactly that and the teens loved it again and are looking forward to more in the future. We are seeing a real hunger for a relationship with God growing in our youth and we are so excited about it!
This past weekend was also filled with excitement. Many of you have followed Elijah’s life in my newsletters the past 4 years. He was born with Myotublar Myopathy and every day is a miracle. He turned 4 last week! He might not be able to talk and move around a lot but you can definitely see life inside of him as he smiles at his surroundings!
Also, this weekend I had the privilege of preaching on one of my passions – Discipleship. We are doing a series at the moment on re-DIGGing your wells based on the scripture in Genesis 26:17. One of those wells is the Well of Discipleship. I had a wonderful time preaching this message and was blessed to see God move and touch peoplethrough the service. If you would like to listen please click HERE. Also, please have a look at the PowerPoint that goes along with the sermon to see pictures that I show during my message so you have the full impact ;o).
Thank you for loving me and your prayers and support! God is doing amazing things in and through you!
