We are preparing for our first Christmas in our new home in Cornwall, UK. It will be a very different Christmas this year - instead of a Christmas day swim in the open air pool at Dodoma Hotel we will be huddled up keeping warm! We are enjoying the different traditions on the run up to Christmas, at church, at school, and in everyday life.
A huge thank you to all our link churches who have given us a warm welcome as we have travelled around the country visiting you all. It has been hard work with so much travelling but we feel very loved and appreciated.
These three pictures show us ministering at different link churches.
We thank all these churches and all the individuals who have supported us and prayed for us over the years and ask that you continue to support us until the end of January when we will officially finish with CMS. We have a few more churches to visit in January and very much look forward to seeing you.
We are enjoying worshipping at our home church Holy Trinity St. Austell. It is wonderful to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones and to see the work that God is doing in the church and in St. Austell. It is exciting to be part of a process of developing a vision for the church. Paul is part of the development vision team, working with others to shape the future of the church. Daniel and Isaac are loving the youth group at the church and have developed some good friendships there. Christine and Isaac are also involved in leading worship and it is great to see Isaac developing his ministry in that area.
We praise God that Daniel and Isaac have both settled in really well at school and we thank you for all your prayers for them. They have both had a really good first term and got good reports. They both love their music, Daniel really enjoying his new drum kit and lessons. Please continue to pray for them as they develop academically and in their new friendships.
