Last week, Peter had the privilege of going to a country he’d never been to before – Albania. He spent a day doing preaching training with a small group of men. Peter was invited by a British missionary that he met at the European Leadership Forum (ELF) where he teaches every year. Peter thoroughly enjoyed his time in Albania and is looking forward to mentoring these men throughout the coming year via webinars. He’ll go back to Albania this time next year to conclude the training. Speaking of ELF, Peter will be back teaching again at this strategic conference in less than a month. We’ll post more about that trip as it approaches. For now, here are some photos from his time Albania:
Peter has also been continuing to preach at Trinity Chippenham (listen here to our recent “Heart of our Faith” series) and we continue to be delighted as we watch God transform lives. Please pray for those precious people in our church who are hurting or who need God to help them grow in particular areas. And for those who don’t yet know Jesus. Our enemy is always on the prowl, looking to take our eyes away from Jesus. Please pray for protection for Peter and I, our family and our brothers and sisters at Trinity Chippenham. For me, the attacks come in the form of discouragement, health issues or just plain exhaustion and being overwhelmed at all there is to do. We are in a marathon, not a sprint – pray that we’ll run with endurance by faith, not by stress!
The children and I have been hard at work trying to tie a bow on our school year. We have nine official school days left! The reason we planned to finish so early is due to our planned trip to the USA where we’ll be meeting with prayer partners and supporting churches. There is LOTS to do to get ready for our trip, so please pray we can be productive and also filled with God’s peace (not stress!) as we prepare. Peter will be doing a significant amount of teaching so please pray for him as he prepares. If you would like an itinerary with prayer points for our USA trip, please email us and we’ll send it to you when it’s finalised.
Hannah will be taking the SAT a week from today (5th May) so please pray she can do her very best. She has been working hard now for the last few months to get herself ready. She has also been preparing to take a CLEP exam when we get to Oregon at the end of May.
Thanks so much for your prayers. Here are a few photos of the little girls . . . such a joy to us every day!
