Never a dull moment in the Tibbert household, with another landmark day on Tuesday this week as we celebrated Ben getting his degree. A very proud father-and-mother moment! The week has also involved Deb being away on a school trip, so the household routine is falling apart in her absence. Take-away meals all week - a complete lack of integrity after my challenge on Sunday to eat and live healthily. Fortunately, I believe in and practice the principle of grace, but I am planning to go running over the weekend.
Following the brilliant Willow Global Leadership Summit last weekend, I am now passing on much of what I learned to a group of lead elders who have arrived for two days of coaching - always a stimulating event!
At the same time preparations are in place for our trip to India next week. We will visit Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. Please pray for good travel and protected health for Deb and I as we seek to encourage those we meet in this amazing and significant nation. We will also spend a few days in Dubai before returning home.
Back here in southeast London our focus is on our monthly Multi-Site Gift Day offering this weekend. I ask again that whichever meeting you attend you come prepared to give - reaching our target of £60,000 would be such an encouragement to us all. I believe we can do it!
