Dubai is an amazing place! It has a skyline like a major American city and includes the tallest building in the world. It is a place of contrasts - you can hear the muezzin give the call to prayer as you walk through a shopping mall of such size that it would dwarf Bluewater. And at the same time there are beautiful views to be had of the desert that surrounds it, wonderful sunsets - and then there are camels!
This is our stopping off point after our week in India and tomorrow we return to London. The trip has been very fruitful but there is no place like home! We are grateful to our parents and to the fabulous Allen family for taking care of Sam while we have been away. It has been a privilege to see what God is doing among these nations!
I heard yesterday from King's that our Multi-Site offering for this month now stands at £57,000 so we are very close to reaching our £60,000 target - this is great news and a brilliant encouragement to us all! Thank you to all for your amazing response and generosity. Praise God!
I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Sunday when we'll be continuing our Making Life Work series. It has begun well and I know it will be of great use and blessing to us all.
