Dear Family and Friends


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.


I also wanted to say thank you for praying for Wolfi. Please continue praying for him. He needs a miracle. He has had 3 rounds of immunotherapy so far and the treatment has caused many side effects especially severe nausea that has ended him up in hospital a few times.


I have been quite busy this last month. I have begun mentoring two more of our teens hoping to help them grow in their relationship with God. Now, I am mentoring Hannah, Miriam, Venice and Gloria. Please pray that these young ladies have a real revelation of who Jesus is in their lives and begin to desire to seek a relationship with Him.


I am also overseeing our Connect Groups at church and in the process of restructuring a few things and hoping to see more groups start up in the next few months. Getting more people into groups and seeing them grow in relationship with each other and with God is one of our main desires.


Our Follow Courses are now meeting in person after 2 years of meeting online! I taught my first course in person a few weeks ago on our Follow Two Course. What a difference it makes seeing people face to face!


I also had the privilege of preaching in our Engage Series this past Sunday on the Message of the Gospel.



I have some exciting news coming up – I will be heading out on a mission to Lisbon at the end of the 23rd of this month! This church plant started in the middle of Covid so this will be the first mission onto the campuses. I’m looking forward to sharing everything God does over these 8 days in next month’s letter. Please be praying for us to make some good connections with students on the university campuses and that we are an encouragement to the couple who are planting this church. We are trusting God to do some amazing things and to see fruit to come out this mission.


Lastly, I will be doing a long overdue trip to Tampa and north Georgia in May! I’m so looking forward to seeing so many of you that I haven’t seen in a few years. For those who are stateside but not in Tampa or Georgia, I will at least be more on your time zone so let’s please make a time to speak on Zoom.


I would love to connect with all of you at some point so please email me when you are free so we can make a plan. I will be in Tampa from 10-23 of May and north Georgia from 24-31 May.


For those living in London who I have not seen in a while – let’s also make a plan! Please contact me to make a date to meet up.


Thank you again for all that you do!


Loads of Love

Dear Family and Friends


I’ve been back in the UK (Slough) for a week now and I am beginning to get back into the swing of things. Thank you again for praying for my health during my sabbatical. I am feeling so much better, and I am looking forward to what God is going to do in this next season.


I want to also say thank you for your prayers for Wolfi. He is on an intense course of immunotherapy and pain management, so your continued prayers are appreciated and valued so much!


Prayer, especially at this time in the world, is so key and is our biggest weapon. As we all watch the news and hear the terrible realities of what is going on in Ukraine, our prayers are vital. Many of you know that I have done a handful of missions over the years in Ukraine, specifically in Lviv. We have seven Every Nation Churches throughout Ukraine and every one of them and their congregations are being affected right now. Many of the women and children have fled the country and many are hiding in underground shelters on a daily basis. Our church in Lviv is in the west of Ukraine and they are receiving and trying to help many of the Ukrainians who are fleeing from their homes in the east where the greatest intensity of the war is at the moment.

Over the years, I have mentored Sophia who is the daughter of our pastors in Lviv. I have walked with her off and on since she was a teenager and was just with her in November last year at our Evangelist Conference in Belgium. Here is a videoclip of her last week as the war started. This clip has also been shown on Fox news in the states. https://youtu.be/R133MLbTC0o


As I said above, we have Every Nation churches in seven Ukrainian cities. They and our church in Kraków, Poland (where I have also done missions over the years), have been preparing to take care of some of the 500,000+ refugees who are fleeing Eastern Ukraine. Please join us as we pray and give financially towards their efforts. If you are wondering how you can support the people of Ukraine financially during this time, Every Nation has set up a way to give that is helping those specifically still in Ukraine and also the refugees that are fleeing into Poland and other areas where we have churches that are helping them.

Thank you again for your prayers and support. In the coming weeks I will begin to teach, preach and disciple new people. I look forward to sharing all that God is going to do!

Dear Family and Friends


In my last newsletter I told you that the first part of my sabbatical was filled with forced rest from having been ill with shingles and covid. Thank you SO MUCH for all of your prayers for my health. The last few weeks have been so much better and today I have one week left before I head back to Slough to hit the ground running.


I’ve been so blessed to have this time to rest and reflect for this next season that God has for me. To be honest with you, I’m not exactly sure what He has in store for the next while but I know that He is so faithful and I am expectant for what He wants to do in and through me – whatever and wherever that is!


I know the above paragraph might sound a little cryptic, but for those of you who are not in London and haven’t heard yet, our Senior Pastor in West Kensington, where I served for 17 years and my spiritual father here, (Wolfi Eckleben) has been diagnosed with cancer this past month. They are still doing tests now to determine the best treatment. For now, the facts are that the main source of cancer is from a melanoma and has spread to his spine, liver and right lung. Our FAITH though, is to FIGHT and believe God for a miracle. Wolfi is a key leader not only across our Every Nation Churches in Europe but Worldwide and he has had words spoken over him about health and long life before this diagnosis, so we are standing on God’s word that He is a healer and the words given to Wolfi personally. Please join us in fighting in prayer for Wolfi.


With all that said, we also feel that there will be growth during this time in all areas of our 3 congregations even during the treatment Wolfi will need. We are all open to our roles needing to be flexible during this time to step in where needed.


When I get back to Slough, I will also be looking into when I will be going to Florida to do a much needed visit for support raising and to say thank you to so many of you who have been faithfully praying and giving financially to make ministry happen here in Europe. Watch this space for dates on my next visit!


Thank you again for your love, prayers and support to reach the nations in Europe!


Loads of Love, Traci
