Dear Family and Friends


I’m writing this letter at the airport on my way to minister for a week with our church plant in Cyprus. I’m so blessed by what God has done this past month and I’m looking forward to seeing what He will do in Cyprus.


When I returned from America, I jumped back into work here in Slough, meeting up with some of the teens that I mentor, following up on our Connect Groups and I taught one of our lessons at our Follow Three Course. I love that in this small class we are representing 6 nations!

I then headed off to our European Student Leaders Camp in Marseille, France to teach on how to do One 2 One Discipleship. It was so good to be together again with these leaders representing 10 countries across Europe. It was a powerful week of impartation and ministry to equip each of them to be more effective on their university campuses.

I would really value your prayers over the next week as I minister in Cyprus. I will be speaking to their staff, youth, small groups, preaching on Sunday, teaching on Discipleship, teaching them how to use evangelism tools on their universities and building relationships with their church members.


Please also continue to pray for my finances and for more people to partner with me.


You are such a blessing!! Thank you again for all that you do!


Loads of Love

Dear Family and Friends


Can you believe we are already halfway into 2022?! I arrived back from my trip to America on Wednesday, and I have hit the ground running – albeit, slowly from jet-lag, but it has been nonstop. This past Sunday the title of the sermon that was preached was “Having Faith for the Second Half”. I’m not sure how the first half of your year has gone but I want you to know that God can still do amazing things in the next 6 months as we surrender to His will and plans - no matter what the first half of the year looked like.


I had a wonderful time in America meeting up and sharing stories with many of you who have made it possible for me to do ministry here in Europe. It was also wonderful meeting some of you for the first time and I pray that you will be encouraged by how God is using me in Europe and beyond as the result of your prayers and support in the coming months.


For those of you here in the UK, I would love to set up a time to catch up with you. Please get in touch so we can make a plan.


Over the next 3 weeks I will be in preparation mode for many things coming up that I would really appreciate your prayer for:


7 June – Teaching at our Follow 3 Course in Slough


27 June to 1 July – Every Nation Student Leaders Camp in Marseille (Teaching on Discipleship and the Holy Spirit)


5-13 July – Cyprus (I’m visiting our church plant to preach, teach, encourage and help them in any way to become more effective and grow)


In addition to the above things I need to prepare for, I will have discipleship meetings with teens and leaders here in Slough as well as in Europe.


You might have noticed that I am doing more in Europe lately. This is because I have now become part of our European Missions Team that will be organising different types of missions throughout the year. I will be helping to plan as well as attending some of these missions. I will also occasionally be travelling to some of our church plants to consult, mentor and encourage the team and church such as the Cyprus trip I will be taking in July.

There will be lots of news to share in the coming months! I can’t wait to tell you what God does on these trips and in all of the meetings. Thank you so much for believing in me and for all that you are doing.


One last bonus to my trip in America was seeing my parents and sisters. They were very quick visits but it was so good to spend a little bit of time with them.

Thank you again for all that you do!

Dear Family and Friends


Last month I started with the following sentences, and I want to repeat them for this month - Thank you so much for your continual prayers and support. This past month has been full on in so many ways and I have truly felt your prayers getting me through.

This past month I flew to Lisbon (Portugal) to do a mission trip with our new church plant. 12 years ago we sent a couple from Slough to plant a church in Gent, Belgium and in the middle of Covid our Gent church sent Elvis & Joyce to plant this church in Lisbon! This couple has faced many challenges over the last 2 years getting settled with 2 young boys, facing isolation from Covid and adapting to the Portuguese culture. In the midst of all the challenges though, they have been able to slowly build some relationships on and off of the university campuses in Lisbon.


On May 23rd I flew in with a small team from Gent to not only spend a week encouraging Elvis and Joyce but also going onto one of the main Universities in Lisbon to do surveys such as the God Test and the Mental Health Survey. It was the first of many missions to come to help this church grow. The surveys showed us, as expected, that most students have no belief in God and more than half of the students I surveyed on mental health, have done or are in counselling because of the affects Covid and their studies are having on them. There was also a real sense of loneliness on campus. The week was fruitful in that we were able to make connections with students that Elvis and Joyce are now following up and we are praying that these students will encounter a real relationship with God. We were also to pray for so many students at the end of our talks. Even though most of them said that they didn’t believe in God, I would always tell them at the end of our conversation that I was aware that they were in exams and would ask if I could pray for them. All of them said yes and some were even brought to tears! (pic of 2 female students we surveyed after we prayed for them) Please pray for Elvis and Joyce as they follow these students up and pray for salvations on the campuses in Lisbon.



This past Saturday we also had one of our Freedom Days! During this day we teach on topics such as Destructive Patterns, Spiritual Error, Identity, Sexual Sin, Addictions, etc and then have an incredible ministry time with people individually. Saturday was definitely a day where people experienced Freedom!



I’m sitting at the airport at the moment about to fly to America for a much needed trip to raise my support and thank some of the amazing people who make it possible to do ministry here in Europe. If you are in America and have not yet been in touch with me about meeting up – please email me. I would love to see you!


Finally, I also wanted to say thank you for praying for Wolfi. Please continue praying for him. He needs a miracle. He has had 4 rounds of immunotherapy so far and the treatment has caused many side effects especially severe nausea. Please continue praying for healing!


Thank you again for all that you do!


Loads of Love
