Final appeal for 2021

For the past several months, we’ve been presenting some financial needs as an appeal to you, the reader. As we come to the end of this year, we know that many of you, particularly in the United States, are actually looking for charities to which you can donate, which might also assist you with your taxes. I would simply like to remind you that documentation for tax-deductible giving is available to you, if you would like to take advantage of these last 2-3 weeks of 2021 to make some last-minute donations.

Director’s Update — December 2021

I have to admit that we’ve entered into what is surely one of my favourite times of the year. There is a definite chill in the air here in Middle Tennessee these past few days. The Christmas trees have gone up, as well as lights everywhere and green and red en masse. The radio is filled with music of the season. Christmas will soon be upon us. For someone who is known for being a bit stoic and not particularly demonstrative with my feelings, it surprises some people that I’m such a fan of the Christmas season. But it’s absolutely true; so, I feel very much in my element at the moment. I’m looking forward to spending Christmas itself with my family, though I have to say that I am also missing Christmas in Wales this year (no mince pies here in America sadly).

Director’s Update — October 2021

Greetings! I hope this note finds you well. After taking a bit of a break during August, I’m returning in earnest to catch I hope that your Autumn has gotten off to a good start. It has been a very busy time for me personally as well as everyone on the Team. Let me catch you up on some things going on with me, as well as the ministry as a whole.

As of 4 October, I have been re-located in the USA. I had an uneventful flight from Dublin to Chicago on the 4th, then later that evening took the night train down from Chicago to Memphis, Tennessee, when I was kindly given a lift to Waynesboro, TN, and where my mother lives.
