A message from the Rector
 

Alan BingThe first proper day of summer seems like a good time to speak of hope and new beginnings.
 
This week our Children and Families Worker, Emily Mitchell, started her new role - new for her and for us. There are three strands to her ministry. She will be looking at how we can sustain and develop our existing children's work within the church; she will be working with local primary schools to help them develop the spiritual potential of their children; she will be finding ways in which we can meet and form community with the young families of Ulverston, building on the excellent work of our Toddler Group. Please support and pray for Emily as best you can as she settles into a new place and a new job.
 
As a church we have quite strong links with Burundi, through the Bethesda Project (for children with disabilities) and through several of us going there on Rooted in Jesus teams. How heart-breaking it is to see that beautiful land with its gifted but long-suffering people being torn apart again. If anyone wants to give towards the relief of the suffering they can do so through the Bethesda Project and in other ways. One of our Burundian friends messaged me yesterday to say this: 'because of what is happening in my country I feel pain in my heart; sometimes I have been discouraged, but the word of God gives me hope.'
 
Let's give thanks for the opportunities God has given us in this country, and further afield, and work wholeheartedly in his strength to build his kingdom.
 
China Inland Mission founder Hudson Taylor famously said, “God’s work, done God’s way, will never lack God’s supply.”
 
may God bless you and use you

Greetings from California!

We have been on the road now for over a week. We have covered Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Nevada and California so far! 

Its been an amazing week of catching up with friends, exploring new places, and lots of driving! We have been so blessed by the hospitality of dear friends and have been encouraged by the testimonies of God's faithfulness wherever we go. We serve such an attentive, loving, and generous Father!

We continue our travels north up the California coast tomorrow on our way to Oregon.
