For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Summer 2017 NEWSLETTER

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
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.
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.
May the Lord’s grace be with you and your loved ones.
