Dear Family and Friends
This past month has been an emotional one. It’s had some amazing highs but also some lows.
In my last newsletter I mentioned that I have been leading a group of single ladies across Europe who are carrying a huge weight of leadership in their churches. Last month I started a new group with two ladies in our Cyprus outreach. I’m so excited about what God is doing and how He is connecting me with people in more and more nations. Please continue to pray for me as I walk with these ladies and others across Europe. It has also been such a blessing and encouragement to me!
Also at the beginning of last month I got to take part in the wedding of what I would call one of my spiritual children. Terry and Josh’s wedding had been cancelled twice because of covid restrictions but thankfully on the third try they were successful! They were only allowed 4 people at their wedding and their reception was a small little party in their hotel room with their guests. I had the honour of praying over them and celebrating with them via zoom. I love seeing what God has done in both of them over the past few years and can’t wait to see what He will do with their future!
Another highlight for me in April was having one of the teens I have been walking with becoming a Christian! I’ve loved meeting with these young ladies and seeing what God is doing in their hearts over the last few months – thank you so much for praying.
April was also a month that has brought many tears as we said goodbye to a wonderful man I have grown to love over the past 17 years. Dina’s (my housemate) dad who I have called Tio (uncle) passed away a few weeks ago. He lived in Madeira, Portugal and sadly due to covid restrictions and complications of travel neither Dina nor her siblings could travel there for the funeral. It’s been a tough few weeks but God has been helping all of us through our grief.
Over the next few weeks I will be teaching on our Freedom Day, preaching on Grief and teaching at our Follow Course as well as all of my other discipleship meetings. I would really appreciate your prayers for every area of ministry I am involved in.
Thank you so much for all that you do. Your prayers and support are touching the nations and generations across Europe!
Lots of love,
