December 2011

I like stationary. Christmas presents. birthday's I love getting new pens, journals, diaries etc and I love most of all coloured pens to highlight words, quotes and scriptures.

December is a month to give thanks for Jesus and also things he has accomplished in your life this past year.

Highlights for me for 2011 would be:

Family: Hannah's graduation, John now back home, Katie's Sydney FP and Joe's baptism. Heather and I will approach 30 years marriage in July 2012 and ask where did the years go and how good is God's grace

Citygate: Our biggest ever growth year
with John and Sue Hosier joining us and
a new building emerging from the rattle of
the B&Q site. What a truly amazing church


Apostolic: Hands laid on me at TOAM leading into our best yet Westpoint with Terry and Jeremy and an outstanding offering. Our day away as Elders and wives was the cream on a tasty cake of 2011 as we prayed, laughed and resopnded to God together

India: Two visits to our dear friends and so encouraged
by their zeal in God, planting churches   and raising many,
 many more leaders. Delhi - reaching over 1000 people
and the first fruits of Foundations for Farming being excellent

Iberia: Our first ever Iberian Peninsula conference broke new ground as we honoured God for the past and painted a picture of a preferable future. Porto church plant saw its first convert and Kevin and Ness press forward in our church plant in Madrid

As I write my coloured pen is running out of ink and I'm brought to tears of thankfulness for these and hundreds more highlights.

2012 knocks its excited hand on all our doors and together we pray

'Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done as perfectly on earth as it is in heaven'
