Tonight we finished our mission in Carlton and Colwick Parishes, and I must say that each of us on the team have encountered God through our time here. This morning Elaine led our thought for the day and pointed us to 2nd Corinthians 5:7 “We live by faith, not by sight”.
The final day of the Holiday Bible Club went really well, with yet again new children coming along today. Julie did the talk based on the Parable of the Banquet and how each of us are invited to a special party at which Jesus is preparing for us. There was no memory verse today, but Joanne did the quiz.
From 5:30 this evening there was a Parish BBQ at which we as a group sang ‘Cornerstone’ and the three children with us sang ‘This little Light of mine’. I spoke on John 3:16+17 and issued an invitation for people to accept Jesus. Five people responded and asked for literature.
We have been so blessed this week and God has continually amazed us. We are so thankful for the way in which He has been moving and touching lives and allowing us to be a part of it.
Tomorrow we have a day off to rest up before we make our journey home on Sunday. Even though the Mission has finished we will still have our team time every morning. Tomorrow morning Derek is bringing the thought for the day and Sunday morning Leslie will share a word with us.
We all want to thank you for your prayers for us this past week and ask you to continue to uplift us and the Parishes of Carlton and Colwick over the coming days and weeks.
