Back in the groove of things

God is so abundantly kind. The past few days have been nothing short of extremely exciting! We met with a couple of the pastors on Thursday and as a team, we're thrilled to hear of the changes they've made on the GAP Team to adjust to our strengths and weaknesses. Their humble leadership and willingness to change things around and scrap things that aren't working is an incredible blessing. I'll elaborate on that more when I'm able.

One of the changes they've made that I can tell you about is that Toms is now our "team captain." He's in charge of making decisions when Mike is in a meeting or unavailable. We were verbally rejoicing when we heard this- what a means of grace it will be! It's already been so helpful just today! No more sitting around waiting to hear what we should be doing...we can just start cracking on!

We have VJ tonight. Toms and I went to Bettws to remind the kids and it seems like LOADS of them will be coming! We're beginning a series with them, "What would Jesus say to _____?" Tonight "Buffy" fills in the blank. The vampire slayer. Dan (I think) will talk about evil and demons, etc. and what the Bible says about them.

Please pray for soft hearts and souls to be saved!

Oh, and for those of you who were praying- Peter and my luggage came today- thank you for praying, Mrs. Dixon!

Jet lag is pretty challenging this side of the pond. Three of us who went to the States couldn't get to sleep until 3am last night...well, this morning. Please pray we learn to rest in the LORD's strength and boast in our weakness in the coming days ahead. His mercies are new every morning. Praise God.
