Iona Restoration

With plans for my New Zealand trip moving forward in leaps and bounds I have been grateful of some deeply restorative quiet time on Iona. Give thanks for the ability of peaceful, prayer-soaked environments to restore and to heal.

I now know that I will be travelling out to New Zealand on January 31st, and returning to this country on June 1st. With Christmas in between, this feels quite close and there is much to plan. I am currently seeking support to help with the £1,000 air fare. Please pray for the provision of this financial help. If you would like to contribute, even in a small way, towards the cost of this ticket I would be pleased to hear from you.

Meanwhile, I now turn my attention to preparing to participate in the ArtServe conference at the end of this month, and then a week later I shall be delivering two Quiet Days for folks in ministry in the Barmouth area. Please pray for both of these events.

My recent Quiet Day for the John Young Foundation was a richly blessed time, and the Stewardship training that I attended was both very helpful and deeply challenging.

A busy pre-Christmas season lies ahead of me. Please pray that the demands on me will not overwhelm.

As always, thank you for your love and prayer support.

May the Lord bless you.
