June News Update
  • In May I had the joy of teaching our Lausanne Bible Core Course (who were in Jerusalem) the book of 1 &
    Family in Tunisia
    2 Kings.  I was actually in Nuneaton for this event but, thanks to the wonders of Skype, we had an excellent time together.  Their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn was a joy.
  • Our family had our first-ever package holiday in Tunisia beginning the end of May, and it was a wonderful! 10 days of sun, sand, rest and family fun.  We are so grateful to the Lord for this treat.  We fell in love with this land and it's people, and are so grieved by the attacks against it. 
  • We had the joy of a few days with Linda’s sister and brother-in-law visiting us.  This was their first visit in 20 years.  As always with such an event we got to spend time in some beautiful parts of England that normally Linda and I would not take the time to visit.  A brief but rich time.
  • Seminar participants in YWAM Toronto
    Last week I spent time with a Korean YWAM ministry in Toronto, Canada.  Mark Kim, the leader of the work there, was a SBS student at The King’s Lodge in 1990-91 and since that time has had the desire to lead a Bible school in Canada to serve the Korean diaspora there.  I led a staff training seminar, engaging with both Leviticus and Hebrews, and then moved to an intensive seminar for local church people introducing inductive Bible study and the book of Colossians.  In both seminars the joy expressed by the participants in the discovery of both the scriptures and new revelations of both our wonderful God and the person and work of Christ was a rich reward.
