Greetings to all! I do hope that this month’s blog finds you all well. It has been a bit of an eventful time for us both here in Wales and other areas, where we have ministry and partnerships, and I say “eventful” in the good sense of the word. We rejoice in new opportunities that the Lord is giving to us to build relationships and make Him known, as we continue to move out of lockdown and have more freedom to get out and about and interact with others. By and large, the weather continues to cooperate, and it is truly beautiful now that flowers and vegetation are in full leaf and bloom.(more…)
Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! – Христос воскресе! – Hristos a înviat! – Christ is Risen!!!
Greetings once again! As I mentioned to you last month, we’re continuing in the spirit of Resurrection, joining in the paschal greeting with our Christian brothers and sisters, using the Eastern Christian Calendar (Easter is on 2 May for them). But in truth, we probably should be celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus every day, shouldn’t we? I pray that the power of His resurrection is at work in you even now, as you read this newsletter. Thank you for taking a few minutes to learn more about what God is doing in and through us in the ministry of Linguæ Christi here in Europe.(more…)
Atgyfododd Crist!!! – Christ is Risen!!!
I hope that this month’s update finds you all well! For those of us using the calendar of the Western Christian tradition, we have enjoyed the wonderful celebration of the Lord Jesus’ glorious and triumphant resurrection this month. Our brothers and sisters of the Eastern Christian tradition get their turn to celebrate on 2 May. Accordingly, you might just receive the paschal greeting two months in a row.(more…)
I cannot believe we are already into the second month of this new year. January passed very quickly for me. I have a feeling that all of 2021 might pass quickly as well. Because January was a bit quiet in many ways and was used as a time of evaluation, prayer and planning for us, this is probably going to be a slightly shorter newsletter than usual. I will address some of the larger issues that have come up in our times of prayer and discussion during January as well as looking forward to February and the rest of the year.(more…)
I would like to begin this month’s report by wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I also hope and pray that all of you reading this message also had a joyous time of celebration and worship over Christmas. I am very much aware that Christmas 2020 was probably quite unusual for everyone receiving this message.(more…)
For many years, I have the habit of calling my 90-year-old mother in Tennessee every Sunday. It’s always a good time to catch up. However, during the Pandemic, when each week is strikingly similar to the one before it, we have often come to a point of silence, where we both say, “well, that’s all I’ve got as news, as it’s pretty much what I shared last week.” Writing for our blog in this Pandemic has been a challenge in terms of finding a lot new to say. Because everything is a bit harder and takes more time, much of our activity is continuing to work on things, until we bring them to a successful (hopefully) conclusion. So, as we approach the end of 2020, we are happy that we have seen the conclusion of some of the projects we’ve been working on over these months, and ongoing progress with others. The following are a few points for this month’s update.(more…)
