Day 309 – Sun 9 July – The girls were sick overnight so Claire stayed at home with them. I was leading the service the services, Chris Roberts preached excellently in the morning from Haggai 1. Great on the text and I think he’s found his own voice in his preaching. It did me the world of good to hear it. We welcomed 6 new members into the church from Portugal, Brazil, Spain and Wales. Geoff Thomas was out again with us, it always encourages me just to see him.
Noah was at the Cradock’s for the afternoon and so it was very chilled at ours. Will Allen preached at night and did a fine, fine job in Matthew 8:5-13 on the faith of the Centurion. He’s done really well in his two weeks with us and has got huge potential.
