Day 88 – Sun 27 Nov – Ellie was sick in the night so Claire and the two girls stayed home all day. I was on Isaiah 43 in the morning and felt helped in preaching it. It was good to have visitors with us for the first time from Wales, Japan, Iran, Hungary and Ireland. One of the ladies who’s been coming to ELT was there and a contact from the book table. The Lord gives us enough encouragements to keep going, you just pray that they come back. We had a quiet afternoon and then in the evening I preached an Advent sermon on Simeon and Anna in Luke 2. We were pretty low in numbers with lots of folk unwell, the Chapel was absolutely freezing so I preached a bit shorter.
