Inspiring Conference

The Retreat Association conference was inspiring ... stimulating ... challenging ... exhausting ... uplifting ... and much more! Thank you for your prayers. Mostly, it was a very affirming time for me: I am now even more sure that I am called to this work. Several old friendships were renewed and lots of new ones made and I have a feeling that much will grow out of this time.

The Support Group response continues to grow day by day. Again, give thanks. Please also continue to pray that the money that is needed to sustain this ministry will be provided.

I am now 'catching up with myself' at home, but will be heading off to Sheffield next week to experience worship with Ruth Fazal. Please pray for a fruitful time of writing after this event.

Please also pray for my son, Dave. After an accident at work he has had to undergo a reconstructive operation on his elbow this weekend. Please pray for full healing and restoration.

Thank you.

A busy few weeks

Thank you for your prayers, everyone. Early responses to my Support Group mailshot have been encouraging. Give thanks and continue to pray that all that is needed will be provided.

I have a busy few weeks ahead of me. Next week I will be at the Retreat Association Conference. Please pray for a time of refreshing and for the building of new relationships in the retreats world. Pray too for the anointing of the Holy Spirit in the workshop I will be leading.

Then just after that I am making a short 3-day retreat to Whirlow Grange. I am taking the opportunity to experience worship with Ruth Fazal who is touring the UK at present, and feel sure this might inspire me to write. Ruth is a very anointed prophetic musician - there's a link to her website under my 'Interesting Web Links' on the right if you're interested.
