Jesus is the Way
The Lord’s blessing to you all. Praise the Lord we have just finished another Chale show and it was a great blessing. We had a young person who shared with us on how difficult they found it to live at this time, and a week later a very much older person also said the same thing as he was weighed down with anxiety, guilt, shame and unforgiveness etc.
Proverbs 12v25, says “An anxious heart weights a man down but a kind word cheers him up”.
He was trying to make sense of life’s course without a pilot on board to guide him.
Proverbs 16v9, says “In his heart a man plans his course but the Lord determines his steps”.
Proverbs 20 v24 shows us “that a man’s steps are ordered by the Lord, how then can a man understand his way”. The great captain of our lives said “ I am the way.” Jesus is the answer.
1 Peter 5v7 AMP “(Casting the whole of your cares all your anxieties all your worries all your concerns once and for all) on Him (Jesus) for He cares for you affectionately and cares for you watchfully). Of course without the dear Lord leading us we are only existing in a fallen world.
So we shared the gospel with him which is the power of God unto salvation and he responded in a truly penitent way and made a good confession to God’s glory. Without your love, prayers and support we couldn’t have helped that man find the dear Lord Jesus Christ.
We share this for your encouragement and for the glory of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, all honour, glory and praise be unto them. With much love in Our dear Lord. Mick.

Gods Word brings Life
In August my wife Margaret and I celebrated our 60th Wedding Anniversary. Looking back 1959 may seem a long time ago and a lot has changed since then but not always for the better, then nearly everybody got married in Church. Back then Margaret and myself were non believers and the local vicar informed us that if we wanted him to marry us in his Church we would have to go on a six week marriage course. I was very reluctant but we went on this course. After a couple of sessions I began to enjoy the quotes from the Bible. I am convinced those words were the seeds that finally produced fruit 23 years later when I came to accept Jesus Christ as my Saviour in 1982. We have had 60 years of happily married life and been blessed with two girls. I have been a member of the team for over 20 years enjoying sharing the word of God with mainly young folks in Wroxall and Ventnor. Today due to my advancing years at 85 years old I can just about manage an hour sharing the holy word on Ryde seafront for God’s word gives life.

Sharing with others
It can be a fearful thing to contemplate sharing ones faith with someone outside of the Christian faith and maybe seem daunting or best left to those who feel called or have a natural gift of evangelism. We are all called to be witnesses in word and deed, both go together but the part of speaking to friends, colleagues or strangers, with their questions can get the better of us, but there is at the same time such a wonderful motivation to not give up, but to pursue opportunities as the dear Lord leads. Be encouraged to pray for daily opportunities. Yes, it can seem as though we would be embarrassed or ashamed to do so but we can remember that our Lord Jesus was not ashamed of us when He nailed our sins to the cross, but so loved us that he came for each one of us to be united to Him in love. The King eternal who called the heavens including every star, every atom into being is willing to be associated with each one of us even when we were in our lost state of unbelief and rebellion. We can’t force others to believe and know what we know, but we are called to speak the truth in love and what a motivation that is. I think we are all the same when it comes to being nervous about sharing the gospel, but the Lord can use any one of us however insignificant or weak we may feel in that situation. Sharing the gospel is precious seed sowing and it glorifies God to do so. It is a great opportunity also to grow in our faith and in our Christian walk. We are called to deny ourselves to follow Jesus and that is at the centre of the gospel. It is always worth it and who knows; sometimes people do get saved when God waters that precious seed. Amen.

Gods Provision
Genesis 8 v 22 is Father God’s promise “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer and day and night shall not cease”. It is always good to give thanks for His provision and promise especially at this time of year. We can appreciate the fulfilment of His word when we see the abundance at harvest time . May we always be thankful for His gracious supply and trust Him for the future.
Every blessing Roy

Greetings
Once again I am very grateful to the dear Lord for allowing me the strength to complete the Easter walk this year. It’s by God’s grace that we were allowed to leave the Cross with members of the general public at various locations overnight. We were grateful, after a gruelling walk from Shanklin to Chale that a member of the public refreshed us with drink and food “for the least in the Kingdom”. We carried the Cross as witness for the price Jesus paid for our sins. The word of God teaches that we are born into sin, Psalm 51v5 (no parent has to teach their child to misbehave we have to teach them to behave). Everyone must turn away from that rebellious nature and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ who paid the price or we suffer the consequences Romans 2v5&6 (storing up God’s wrath).
John Newton wrote:-

SIN AND IT’S CURE
The worst of all disease, Is light compared with sin;
On every part it seizes, But rages most within.
Tis palsy, plague, and fever, And madness all combined;
And none but a believer, The least relief can find.

From men great skill professing, I thought a cure to gain,
But this proved more distressing, And added to my pain.
Some said that nothing ailed me, Some gave me up for lost;
Thus every refuge failed me, And all my hopes were crossed.

At length the Great Physician, How matchless in His grace,
Accepted my petition, And undertook my case.
First gave me sight to view Him -, For sin my eyes had sealed;
Then bid me LOOK unto Him! I looked, and I was healed.

Every blessing Mick

Obeying The Signs
I have noticed when walking or driving that the speed signs are often ignored. The mandatory signs have been installed to safe guard all users of our highways. The scriptures also are there to warn us to remain on the narrow way that leads to life and yet how often do we ignore them at our cost, John Bunyan’s Pilgrims Progress illustrates this very well. Jesus said of Himself that “He is the Way, the Truth and the Life”. If we follow Him then whatever the road of life brings we will always be safe in the Lord. Every blessing. Roy

Christ Crucified
Paul was a highly-trained student of the Old Testament writings, Jewish law, and of logic and rhetoric; and evidently he was conversant in Roman law as well. When preaching the gospel, however, he focused on the message itself and the power of God, and not on rhetorical techniques of persuasion. 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 (KJV) ‘And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellence of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God’.

Further event dates
The bus team are looking forward to attending once again two of the Isle of Wight main family shows. The first will be at the Chale Show at the Military Road site on the weekend of 3/8/19 & 4/8/19; then at the Wolverton Manor show just outside of Shorwell for the weekend of 31/8/19 and 1/9/19. We will have our bus on site and also our marquee for face painting, children’s activities, book stall and “bric a brac” for sale. Our main purpose is of course to represent our dear Lord and to give out tracts as we are lead. Please pray for us that our witness will bear fruit.

We thank you for your continued encouragement and support.

Greetings
The Lord’s grace and peace to you all,
It is 17/2/19 @ 5.45am in a hotel and awoken by a fire alarm going off. After going around in a circle a few times my head settled down enough to put on some clothes and make our way to the assembly point. A lady asked “what is all the noise about”, we said it was the fire alarm going off and so she went back into her room.
At the assembly point we were shocked to find only a handful of people out of about 250 people in the hotel as they never responded to the warning and sadly a great many today aren’t responding to the warning. Our God is indeed a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29.
He has graciously given His Son to be the fire chief of our salvation; the cross is the assembly point where no smoke or flames can touch us, for He truly is the fountain of life. We pray that many will respond to the Lord this Easter. To God be the glory through His Son by the blessed Holy Spirit.
Much love in the Glorious Trinity, Mick.

Facing Life’s Difficulties

Thank God that we have the promise from the scriptures in the latter part of Hebrews 13 verse 5 “Not at all will I leave you, not at all will I forsake you, never”(MKJV). This is a tremendous promise as we face each day life’s difficulties. At this present time there are so many we know personally facing major health issues. We of course commit them to our dear Lord’s care and pray that His will be done. There is another promise that we can hold onto found in Romans 8 verse 28 “ And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose”(MKJV). Are all things good? Of course not, but all things in Him can be worked for our good and that is our hope.
With every blessing in Christ. Roy.

Anguish of Jesus
Luke 22:41-44 KJV – ‘And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine be done”. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground’. – Luke tells us of the anguish of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane. Jesus was subservient to the Father , but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t fully God as well as fully man. I’m subservient to my manager at work and I do what she tells me to do. Although I’m subservient to her I’m also human like she is, her being my manager doesn’t change our essence, and we’re both human. In the same way, Jesus being subservient to the Father doesn’t change their essence, they are both God. Father sent an angel to comfort and strengthen Jesus to help him face the ordeal ahead. Luke, being a physician would most probably have been interested in Jesus sweating blood. Sweating blood is a very real condition called Hematidrosis. Hematidrosis is a condition in which capillary blood vessels that feed the sweat glands rupture, causing them to exude blood, occurring under conditions of extreme physical or emotional stress. The stress Jesus felt in the garden is beyond our comprehension. The fall of mankind began in a garden and part of our redemption also featured a garden. The King took our punishment and deserves our love, thanks and worship. Every blessing, Richard.

We thank you for your continued encouragement and support.

Christmas Greetings
This prophecy of the Messiah’s birthplace Micah 5 v 2, was fulfilled in Luke 2 v 4-7.
The evidence of biblical prophecy is the answer to many sceptics’, as to the unspeakable treasures we have in the scripture dates found in the Old testament that can be authenticated. We must keep in mind that the knowledge of the bible’s inspiration will not in itself bring a sinner to the foot of the cross. There must also be a knowledge of sin, and we must like Paul persuade people concerning the Lord Jesus Christ from both the law of Moses and the Prophets (Acts 28v23) and pray that the Holy Spirit will convict of sin that may lead to the lost being born again. May they experience this wonderful gift of this child born unto us.
May the joy of this event be yours.

Prayer
– Many people may go to a church service only for this time of year to enjoy the traditional aspects of the season. Pray that such as these would meet with the Lord and that the nativity story would be revealed in their hearts and lives as to the meaning of our Lord Jesus Christ’s advent and what He came to do.
– Christmas may not mean much anymore to a great deal of folk, to them it is just another day. This may be due to the effects of life experience, grieving loss or serious life changing events. Pray for the love and mercy of God to reach them as only the dear Lord knows how. He may use each of us to be that source of Christian love and witness.
– Pray for the gospel message to be heard despite the commercialisation of this holiday time and the torrent of the seasonal rush.
– Please pray for the team as we go into another year of ministry on the streets.

Christmas to New Year
When I was out shopping the other day I heard a radio discussion about Christmas time and an estimate was stated as to the percentage of unwanted presents there will be this year that will remain unused or end up in charity shops or ebay etc. That is a reminder in one way how the greatest gift of all is treated. Many will disclaim the relevance for them or reject the offer of the gospel. Yet while there is time the gospel must still be proclaimed so we press on and remain available to bring the message of Jesus to those around us.
As we go into the New Year we will be planning for our Easter time of outreach when the team will be walking the cross during Holy week ending on Easter Sunday. Good Friday will be a time of street witness. Perhaps some of you reading this may wish to participate for a day or a small leg of the walk. The schedule for the week is as outlined below.

Sunday 14th April 2019 8.30am. Start from Ryde Elim, Albert Street, Ryde, via Puck-pool, Seaview, St Helens, Bembridge, Sandown, Lake, Shanklin, top of Cowleaze Hill.

Some Christmas Reminders
May the Christmas cheer remind you of Him who said “Be of good cheer”
May the Christmas bell remind you of the glorious proclamation of His birth.
May the Christmas carols remind you of the song the angels sang “Glory to God in the highest”.
May the Christmas season remind you in every way of Jesus Christ our King.

As we approach the end of another year it is good to give thanks for the Lord’s blessing and provision. We thank you for your prayer and financial support for this outreach. Our greatest joy comes from those who come to know the Lord Jesus Christ and His salvation.
May the dear Lord truly bless you whatever your circumstances.

I thank The Lord for upholding us according to His word and allowing us to witness once again, taking up the cross and walking around the Island Easter week.
On Good Friday we were singing in Newport open air underneath the arches when 3 young people came over to us with 6 cold drinks that they had bought with their money. I asked why had they done it and they said because they wanted to. What a blessing with tender hearts like that, it would have been wrong not to share the word of God with them, “Giving the least a cold drink.”
Also what a blessing to be able to join with Churches together, singing praises to the Glorious God Head. Every Blessing, Mick.

A Royal Wedding
John 2:11 Amplified Bible (AMP) ‘This, the first of His signs (attesting miracles), Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and revealed His glory [displaying His deity and His great power openly], and His disciples believed [confidently] in Him [as the Messiah—they adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Him]’.
With the recent royal wedding occurring, I thought of the wedding in Cana. By attending, Jesus stamped his approval on the marriage covenant between a man and woman.- Genesis 2:24, Amplified Bible (AMP) ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh’.
During the wedding feast the wine ran out. Jesus did something only God can do. He changed the molecular composition of matter, the water became wine. The wine was good. God’s timing is always perfect and Jesus, knowing the wine would run out, displayed for the first time his glory. Jesus changed the water into wine. In the same way he changes a hard heart into a soft heart. Those who know the Lord can attest to this miracle of transformation. We’ve all been invited to a wedding feast (Matthew 22). Some will refuse to attend but that doesn’t mean we don’t hand out the invites. Only the Lord knows who will attend, and as his workers let’s tell about this wonderful wedding feast when the opportunity arises. – Every blessing Richard.

Prayer
Thank you every one for your continued prayers, please continue praying for myself, Mick and my daughter Shannon who is in need of prayer for her health. Also for the upcoming shows that we take the bus out to, and the ladies who do a fantastic job face painting. There are still spaces needing to be filled on the prayer clock. God bless, Dave & Lin.
Pray for the work of the gospel on the island and the church. Pray for those who minister the good news and teach the word. Pray for our institutions and all of those who hold office and in authority. Pray that the life giving message of Jesus would be revealed on this isle amidst the prevailing culture and against the tide of unbelief. God can open hearts through his Spirit. Pray for all of Gods people to have the wisdom and boldness with God given opportunities to share with those the dear Lord may put in our path in love.

This Summer Shows
For many years now we have had the wonderful opportunity of attending two of the island summer shows. We intend (lord willing) to be at the Chale show early August and the Wolverton Manor show in early September. We set up a marquee with the intention of sharing the gospel in a more relaxed way. We provide face painting, children’s craft, a book stall and a bric-a-brac stall. Both shows give an invaluable opportunity to give out tracts, but more importantly time to have conversations. We would appreciate your prayer support and would love to see you should you attend.
Every blessing, Roy.

A Walking Challenge – Fundraising
Over the 19th to 23rd of June I will be walking around the Isle of Wight coastal path to raise funds for the Christian Institute who are dedicated Christian charity who defend Christian truth in the public arena especially where Christian freedoms and teaching of the bible is eroded in society. They provide legal help to those affected and face court action due to Christian conscience. Their website is www.christian.org.uk.
Perhaps you could consider giving to this important work using secure giving page at www.give.net/Wightpathwalk. Type the web address into your internet browser and you will be able to go straight to my page. The giving page will be still active after the week for a while yet.
God Bless, Nigel.

Greetings
Much love to you all in the dear Lords name.
We often hear people blame (the enemy) the d***l whose name I will not give pen to for tribulation.
When God uses this very instrument to fulfil His will for our lives, God takes us through the fire not to burn us but to purify us,
He takes us through the waters not to drown us but to wash us and when the waters are rough. He’s in the boat with us.
When we understand that the dear Lord chastens those He loves, this enables us to endure trials.

Harvest-time
In Genesis 8 verse 22 it says “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease”. What a wonderful promise from our Heavenly Father who continues to sustain our planet day by day. It’s on record that we have had an exceptional summer with such a long dry spell. Without rain our crops would wither and die and as we have witnessed we are more prone to wildfires and the destruction they bring. This reminds me that there is truly a famine in the land for the word of God! We have fallen far away spiritually and morally as a Nation from God’s best. There is a spiritual dryness and only our God can bring times of refreshing so there is an urgent need to pray for God’s mercy to be shown rather than His righteous anger. He is a God who will fulfil all His promises because He is just.
Every Blessing, Roy.

Gods Faithfulness
“He hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee” Hebrews 8: 5.
Here is a promise that provides a balm to every wound and a quieting for every downcast spirit, as well as for every child of God with whatever situation one is in or whatever circumstance prevails. The promise is sure because ‘He hath said…’ Just as He said ‘Let there be light and there was light.’ God spoke and it came into being, so He has spoken in his communion with His people that He would never leave them. In every changing scene of life the dear Lord will remain true to His loving promises always.
Are you facing adversity or have been facing uncertainty, or find yourself as it were in unchartered territory, alone, bereaved or broken? Then rest your head on his breast this very hour and cast your burdens upon the king of kings.
Are you feeling ineffective, unfruitful, crushed by temptation? Is there any limit to our Heavenly Father to help? Will He pass by those whom His beloved Son has purchased and leave us to ourselves? There may be times that bring what seems a frowning providence but yet still God works out still all things for good for those who love Him , who are called according to His promise (Romans 8: 28). He says,’ I will never leave thee nor forsake thee’!
‘ For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal’. 2 Corinthians 4: 16-18.
May God Bless you and your loved ones always.

Greetings
May the Dear Lord bless you this Easter. It seems only 5 minutes ago we were celebrating the birth of our dear Lord and here we are now preparing to walk the “Walk of Witness” as our dear Lord commanded us, “You shall be my witnesses. ” I am in my 74th year so I don’t know how many more years the Lord will allow me! We walk as a reminder that without the shedding of blood there can be no remission for sin, safety, security or salvation and no escape from God’s Holy wrath. We pray that our heavenly Father will have mercy on the weather as He orders all things. We all serve a great God and Father through the Lord Jesus Christ in the strength of the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Much love Mick.

From Richard
John 20:24-25 – (NKJV) – “Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
With Easter coming there is so much in scripture to ponder regarding the crucifixion of Jesus. The fulfilment of numerous scriptures from the Old Testament that came true is one. The thief who was crucified next to Jesus and his salvation is another. The main thing though is the price paid in full by Jesus. His death and resurrection gives us hope, turning God’s righteous wrath from us onto the cross at Calvary. There is so much I could write about but let me finish by writing of Thomas. Doubting Christians have two things that doubting Thomas did not have—the indwelling Holy Spirit and the written New Testament. By the power of both the Spirit and the Word, we can overcome doubts and, like Thomas, be prepared to follow our Lord and Saviour and give our all for Him. – Every blessing Richard.

Prayer
It is fairly safe to say in all likelihood that we would not ever expect to be invited to Buckingham Palace in our lifetime to have tea and a chat with the queen. One thing as Christians that is promised in gracious certainty is that we each can draw near to have an audience with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week with an open invitation. Praise the Lord!
Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) – ‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus’.
1 Timothy 2:1-3 (NKJV) – ‘Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, interces-sions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour.’

Easter Outreach
The Easter holidays are nearly on us once again and we look forward to this year’s ‘Walk of Wit-ness’ as we carry the cross around the island as a team. Who knows what opportunities for gospel conversation the Lord will direct but pray that He will certainly use this time for His glory and that seeds will be sown? The walk will take place from Palm Sunday 25th March to Easter Sunday 1st April with a rest day on Saturday March 31st. On Good Friday we will be engaged in street outreach at St James Square, Newport. For our walk route and the schedule for the week please refer to the events page on our Website www.godpod.org.uk.

Thoughts for Easter
With Easter fast approaching we will be reflecting on our dear Lord’s great sacrifice taking that cup of God’s wrath fully on Himself. Our Lord Jesus cried out “My God, My God why hast thou forsaken me”?He took our punishment that we might be saved and know the mercy of God. This Easter can be truly a great time of witness to the glorious news of the gospel. We must pray that opportunities will not be lost and for all those involved with public witness to our Saviour’s redeeming work. Christ has risen!
Every blessing. Roy

Rejoicing in Heaven
Grace, Peace and Love in the Lord Jesus Christ be yours this festive season. It was a great blessing about three weeks ago when a young man came into the bus at his wits end, having serious thoughts about ending his life, so we shared with him about the reason for this season – ‘Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners.’ Instead of his life ending, it has just begun; the dear Lord graciously saved him and has transformed his life. The change is as real as the difference between life and death, light and darkness. Truly we serve a wonderful, loving, kind, patient God through the Lord Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. “ To God be the glory great things He has done”. Every Blessing, Mick.

From the Chairman
It is my humble honour and proud privilege to become the chairman of the trustees for the God Bus and it is a position for which I have had no previous experience. I pray that the Lord will give me the wisdom, knowledge and the right qualities to fulfil my duties in serving this most dedicated army of warriors who work as a team. They support each other in prayer; give encouragement with their individual and different personal qualities.
The God Bus outreach consists of the team involved with the evening ministry over the five nights each week at different locations on the island, with the aim of ministering to people with their needs and spreading the Gospel message that the Lord has commanded them to do. The trustees and wives support the outreach especially in the Lord’s work of sharing His love at the Isle of Wight shows by (for example) painting the faces of children and sharing their love with the parents. With Gods’ grace and the power of the Holy Spirit given to each one, they have been able to continue this hard work with dedication, which is a testimony of the success of the last 25 years of the Lord’s work through them. May they be blessed in Jesus name.
Every blessing, Ken – Chairman

Baptism & Testimony
At the very start of my journey with Christ it was quite difficult, passing from the world to becoming a child of God. I struggled to leave behind my former ways and pursuits. I had experienced personal miracles yet had ignored his call often, but the time had come to listen; walk His path; to study his word and follow it, having to swallow that pride and accept I am not my own. He is worthy of my total trust. He knows what’s best for me, and as I abide in Him, He will never break his promise. Since then I couldn’t help but tell others about my faith, even strangers as I was led to, sharing the good news of Jesus and all he has done for us.
I was a Christian for just over 1 year, walking solo with Christ until I realised that I needed to be around other Christians who shared the same love for Him. I became lonely, and needed help in my journey, so I went from town to town and church to church, speaking to different types of people before one day around Easter time in Newport, I bumped into Mick and Richy. I had to ask what their belief was because months leading up to this I was having discussions with the JW’s, and being in the same area I thought they were with them, but after having a good conversation I was invited to the Wayfarers fellowship which I attended the following Sunday. It’s a smaller group than I’d previously experienced, but on arrival I felt so welcomed, and met lovely regular members. I loved the service which was solely scripture based teachings, with great hymns which I prefer opposed to some of what I’d previously encountered. (They make a lovely cup of tea with a good choice of biscuits afterwards too ha ha!). Since going there I haven’t looked back.’

‘For a long time I couldn’t wait to get baptised. I was holding out for an old mate of mine from Newcastle, also a born again Christian 15 years before myself. I thought it would be nice for him to do it for me from where I’m originally from, in Gods closest ocean of Tynemouth, but plans just kept falling through. As it was coming to the end of another summer and not wanting to wait until the next year, I asked Mick and Richy if they would mind baptising me and they jumped at the chance to do so. After about a fortnight or so of my asking, we met at Ventnor sea front, where on a chilly evening on the 3rd of October, a declaration was made that my sins were washed away! I was baptised in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit before 14 people who came especially to share this time with me, and other bystanders going about their business, including a Christian couple on holiday that came over and introduced themselves. It was a cold but lovely evening, and I thank Mick and Richy for sharing the temperature of that water with me ha ha! God bless you my brothers’.
I thank Christ for what He’s done for me and continues to do, and also others around me where He has entered their heart and so changed their life for the better with His eternal salvation. He has promised to love and take care of us always, and unlike the enemy, He’s true to his word and will never ever break His promise to us, as testimonies, history, and science proves to us. He will also be there for all those whose hearts are opened to the truth of God’s love in Jesus everywhere. Every blessing Eric.

Urgent Prayer Need
I would ask for prayer please regarding a recent brain test result. The results were not good and not what I was expecting. I am having problems with my speech and balance at the moment, and waiting to see a specialist. As a Christian I still need continued prayer, as we are under attack at all times and as a believer I am still vulnerable. It is not only non believers that need prayer, we need just as much as everyone else.
‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus’. – Phillipians (ch4: 6,7)
Thanks Dave.

May God Bless you and be with each of you this Christmas time and always.

Greetings

On the day we put up the tent at Chale Show, the dear Lord released a 30 knot wind and horizontal rain, but we managed to get the job done. “Praise the Lord”. People were very generous with their donations as we don’t charge for face painting, books and tracts etc.

For 25 years we have been out sharing the Gospel, asking the dear Lord if  He still wants us to carry on? But as you can see from the treasurer’s article below, this gives me the Lord’s confirmation that He has been speaking to people. Their generosity is a great encouragement to continue with our witnessing and has a far greater effect than they realize as it enables us to continue to share the Word and the love of the Lord Jesus Christ to those who will listen.

We have just finished attending another show and as an example from a previous  show there was a young man who was heading down the wrong road. We were able to share the love of Jesus Christ with him and his life now has been transformed. He now has his own business, married and a baby daughter, “Praise the Lord”.

God gave the first and the best so it is with gratitude that we can continue serving Him, thanks be to God for His gift that is beyond description.

May the Lord bless you richly

Mick

How the Lord supplies!

Very recently our bus developed problems with the clutch and so at the time of writing the vehicle was at the garage. Extra financial resources had been received recently prior to the repair and so it is a great encouragement to us all when provision is made in advance.

We do thank the Lord and His people for the financial resources received. Without such support we would be greatly hindered in continuing the outreach.  Thank you from the bus team and trustees.

Php_4:19  But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Every  blessing.

 

Roy  – Treasurer.

Thought for the Future

1 Corinthians 15:14 (NKJV)  – And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

– The story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17) had me thinking about the many Goliaths we can encounter in our walk with Jesus. David was a young shepherd boy and had faith in the true living God. David had already had encounters with a bear and lion who took sheep, and gave God the glory for delivering him from these encounters.

 

David’s faith in God gave him confidence in this encounter with the giant Goliath. David killed Goliath using a sling and stone. His faith and trust was the key. Our biggest Goliath is death. The wonderful thing is that Jesus died on the cross for us and rose again and his promise is our rock when we face our biggest Goliath.

 

John 14:2-3 (NKJV)  In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

 

– Every blessing Richard.

Greetings
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are grateful to the Lord once again for His kindness to us. We are glad now that the bus repairs have been completed to be back on the streets once again serving the Lord. We have been amazed at the Lord’s provision in His undertaking through those who carried out the work so professionally. Those seemingly “Non Christians” who carried out the work were most generous in reducing their labour costs and hours charged in welding and painting the vehicle to a high standard.
God the Father has given us the best in our blessed redeemer, so it’s only right that we present that same image to the world. We are looking forward to meeting those who the dear Lord might draw by His Spirit to our beloved Saviour and friend The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth through the bus witness.

What I have done is worthy of nothing but silence and forgetfulness, but what God has done for me is worthy of everlasting and thankful memory.
Joseph Hall (1574-1656).

Giving thanks
In Luke 17:11-19, we read an account of Jesus healing ten lepers. When the lepers saw Jesus they called out, “Jesus, master, have pity on us, ”Jesus replied, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” The priests would have examined them to see if they were cured and allowed back into the community. At the moment of Jesus’ instruction, the men were still lepers. No physical change had yet taken place, but, in faith, the men obeyed. As they began to walk to the priest, they were healed.

Jesus has always required faith on the part of the person who asked for healing. Only one returned to thank Jesus for the healing received, and that was a Samaritan despised by the Jews. Jesus expressed disappointment that the other nine had not thought to give praise to God for their healing. From this we learn that God desires for us to express our thankfulness to Him for all He does in our lives. We should always give thanks to the giver and not just the gifts.
The greatest gift is Jesus. – Our “Satnav” through life and our God and Saviour.

It is good always to give thanks!
We have so much to be thankful for. Daily we receive gracious blessings from the Lord especially sins forgiven and new life in Jesus. It is good to give thanks not because we must, but because we delight to do so.
There is much to make us despair, but the Lord has promised “Never to leave us or forsake us.” What a solid promise that truly is and we can fully rely on Him to keep His word as we live in this troubled and desperate world, where so many experience sorrow, pain, and doubt. Thank you Lord, for we can trust you all our days.

Every blessing, Roy.

Thou hast given so much to me; Give one thing more, – a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me; As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
George Herbert (1593-1633)

1 Thessalonians 5: 16, 17. “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.
