Well it has been a busy summer, but that is no excuse for not updating this site since July! The summer has flown by and it looks like the good weather is probably done for the year. Homeschool is back in full swing. Actually, we started in mid-August because we want to finish the school year early next summer before a family trip back to the USA!
This weekend we had a great time at our church weekend away. It was our fourth and best. Two or three families couldn’t make it, but the majority of the church were present and the venue was bursting at the seams. It was such a great atmosphere. Honestly it felt not only fuller than previously, but the group of people as a whole just somehow felt more mature and together than in the past. It is a real privilege to be part of Trinity Chippenham. The older girls were sharing with other teen girls, Melanie stayed at home overnight with Jessah and then joined us during the days. I (Peter) shared with Kaylah, Joel, and a good friend with his daughter and son. It was so cute to see the little ones playing together, and praying together at night.
Sunday morning Kaylah and her friend Lumiana told me that Kaylah had cried on Saturday evening while I was watching the movie with everyone else. Kaylah told me, “we almost came outside in the rain to get you, but then we prayed together and I was alright.” So cute.
Today I am going over to Bristol to cover for a good friend who is launching a new Union School of Theology hub there. While I am not officially involved in this learning hub, I am happy to help, not least because two friends from Trinity Chippenham are studying in it. I lecture at Union and was on campus for a day of teaching last week, so it is great to see this ministry spreading and growing.
This coming weekend I will be up in Wrexham speaking at the North Wales Men’s Convention. I’d appreciate prayer for that as I will be speaking twice to the whole group. Then it is back to Chippenham so that I can continue our Reformation 500 series at Trinity on Sunday.
