Calm before the storm ..

It's been a quieter week this week so the batteries are charging up ready for the schools work to kick in next week .

As a church we go into 18 schools in the South Shropshire area which is a tremendous opportunity for the Gospel .

Katie is away on a Christian camp recovering from the trauma of her GCSE results which were much better than she expected ...she did really well and surprised herself ;-)

Also last Sunday Roger Carter came over to see us with his girlfriend Rachel . Roger was part of our mission in 2006 and in now working amongst the youth in Covent Garden & Soho . It was really good to have them over for the day . And Roger /Rachel if you are reading this keep in touch and let me know how the work is going .

Slowly Back in to the routine

I have to confess to feeling slightly jaded yesterday . When you become old like like me it takes a while to recover from a full on week like last week ..
Today though , I was rejuvenated ,so much so that I managed to draw in racket ball with Phil this morning ..he obviously can't take the pace any more ..
Listening to Marks Driscoll's series on prayer at the moment ...recommended here
