God’s blessing to you all.
By God’s good grace we have just completed all the shows this year and it’s not been without its
At Chale show on the Saturday, we had to fight against a gale and torrential rain and our marquee
survived and we all managed to keep safe.
Psalm 71v9 say’s “do not cast me off in old age, do not forsake me when my strength fails” and
v18 “now also when I’m old and grey headed, O God do not forsake me.”
I looked in the mirror the other day and saw that the muscle that was once on the top of my arm is
now underneath but praise the Lord.
Psalm 92v13 “those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our
God” and in V14 ” they shall still bear fruit in old age, they shall be (fat) fresh and flourishing.”
Our great vine dresser will prune us to bear fruit for His glory.
Grey hair may slow us down but it shouldn’t stop us.
We continue to go out on the streets to try and make the invisible God visible, that “We may teach
transgressors your ways and sinners shall be converted unto you”.
We may feel like a bruised reed or smoking flax but He will not leave us or forsake us, He will give
us strength to serve.
Every blessing Mick.

Busy Summer
The Lord has blessed us with a busy summer season where we were able to attend both Chale
and Wolverton shows. Our face painters had lots to do as many children wanted their faces
painted, the most popular design was the unicorn. We welcomed Wendy who has joined our face
painting team.
We had many opportunities to witness for our dear Lord and we do pray that seeds sown will
produce fruit in it’s season. Saturday at Chale will be remembered for many years to come owing
to the stormy weather and the cancellation of the show that day. Sunday made up for the lost day
as the show was well attended. This year at Wolverton our site was placed near the canoe lake.
We were blessed as the weather was very good both days and again this show was well attended.
We continue to take our bus out on Tuesday Freshwater, Wednesday Wroxall and Thursday
Shanklin from 7pm. The Lord provides encounters with those who need Him in their lives.
Your prayer support is always greatly appreciated.

Thoughts on the letter of James
James tells us that there is the testing of our faith and this should produce patience. How often
when faced with various trials we take our eyes off the Lord and find ourselves floundering.We
turn this way and that rather than trusting that the Lord is working for our ultimate good.
I am not pretending that it is easy but we can trust Him as He has promised “Never to leave us or
forsake us”. If you are going through a difficult time then ask those you know who love the Lord
to pray for you and support you where needed.
Every blessing Roy.

Forthcoming AGM
Our annual general meeting is scheduled for Friday October 27th at 7pm. This will be online
rather than a physical meeting. If you would like to attend then please contact Roy Moul either by
phone or email as displayed at the bottom of our newsletter.
God’s Questions
We have all heard of the what is called a searching question’. It is a question that goes straight to
the heart of a matter and challenges your thinking with the effect that it requires an honest answer
even if it makes the responder uncomfortable.
God’s reason is to challenge us; to consider that state of our own hearts; to set us straight; to draw
us from ourselves and to meet with him. There are particular places in scripture where God asks
specific individuals or audiences such a question, but we see that these very questions also are for
us to consider.
Job asked the Lord questions about his suffering but instead of directly answering the question,
God asks Job a question. ‘Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?’ He asked Job
77 questions in all that covered the realms of cosmology, oceanography, meteorology and the world
of animals but they all stem from that first question.
God did reveal Himself to Job who came to know that the purpose of God is way, way bigger and
higher than we can fathom. Job replied that he spoke of what he did not know, things too
wonderful for him to comprehend. There is one that could answer God’s question on our behalf
who is qualified to say ‘I was there when you laid the foundation of the earth (see Hebrews 1v 10)
because he created it himself – John 1 v 1-3. Colossians 1 – 15-17.
He could also in his humanity identify with our suffering. He knew the path of pain, what it was to
be terribly alone, abandoned and falsely accused. The Lord Jesus Christ not only identified with us
but he stood in our place to deal with the very thing that caused all of the suffering and pain. He
took our sin though he himself was without fault.
God does not always answer our questions in the way we might expect or wish, but he has
answered our questions through the incarnation, life, death & resurrection of Jesus Christ.
To him be glory and praise, now and forever.
Thank you for your continued interest and support this we greatly value.
Every blessing to you and your families
From members of the trust and bus team
