We Finally Updated Our Site!

Peter —  February 5, 2018

After too long we have finally been able to update this site with new pictures and content.  Here are some of the pages you might like to take a look at:

The Eight of Us is now up to date with the children all present and at the right age! We have an overview of our ministry that is current, along with a schedule that includes some of what is happening in the next months.

There are pages with homeschooling information, reflections on miscarriage, and several pages on book suggestions – including an updated list from Melanie, and several other lists too!

Speaking of books, if you’d like an overview of the books Peter has written, click here.  Also if you’d like to know where to find recordings of Peter preaching or teaching, click here.  Our past email updates are here, and financial support info is here.

Please have a wander around the site and let us know if you spot anything that is out of date!

Hannah’s Story & Prayer Letter

Peter —  February 3, 2018

Hannah recently won a short story competition with the Evangelical Alliance.  Her story, “Resurrection of Hope” is in the EA magazine and also you can read it here.

She has also just written a prayer letter in anticipation of going on another missions trip in March – if you’d like to read her letter, click here and it should take you to it.  But do let us know by email or by commenting on this post so that Hannah can know you have read it!

 

Barcelona

Peter —  December 8, 2017

Here are the preachers that I got to spend time with!

This week I had the privilege of a quick trip to Barcelona in Spain.  My colleague, Mike, and I, hit the road at 3am on Monday to travel to Barcelona.  We arrived before lunch, which was when our first segment of the visit began.  Mike was participating in a two-day training session to learn how to lead the Bible Teachers Networks more effectively at the European Leadership Forum.  At the same time, I was leading a two-day training session with seven preachers from Poland, Albania, Ukraine, Hungary, and Ireland. (Several were unable to make it to Barcelona and so the group was smaller than it could have been.)

We had a great two days together.  I was able to give instruction on subjects that are harder to convey in our regular webinar format, and they were each able to preach a sermon and receive feedback.  We all felt ministered to by God’s Word.  Speaking of which, I was also responsible for leading morning devotions for the whole gathering (about 80 people) on each of the three mornings we were there.  While our little group were squeezed into a hotel bedroom that had been converted for our course, it was so good to get out and enjoy the beautiful beach (even if the temperature was really cold!)

On the second evening I was able to go with two of the guys to watch Barcelona play a Champions League match.  It was a great experience to be there and to see one of the greatest players of all time, Lionel Messi, up close.  We think the club gave us much better tickets than we paid for because we bought tickets that were very high up at the back of the stadium, but instead found ourselves two rows from the pitch!

After the 48-hours with my group of preachers, Mike and I were then together with a group of network and national leaders for a 24-hour learning community where we sought to make plans for the forthcoming European Leadership Forum.  Again, it was a good time.  Mike and I made it home safely on Thursday evening at 11pm.  Thanks so much for praying for us and please do pray for the men in my preaching group this year – each one is serving faithfully in often challenging circumstances!

A beautiful setting for ministry in December!
