Having enjoyed being at home in London for the last few months, Deb and I are now preparing for a season of overseas travel. By the time this blog goes out we should be well on our way to Zambia for the start of a three-week trip to southern Africa.
Our first five days will be spent visiting Joseph and Lily Mwile in the Copperbelt region of Zambia, not far from the border with the DRC. Joseph heads up Dayspring Ministries, which is part of ChristCentral family of churches. This is not a nation we have been to before, and we are looking forward to seeing a number of their projects, including an amazing school, as well as visiting churches and spending time with leaders. On Saturday we will be joined by Scott Marques from Zimbabwe and together we will be speaking on leadership. On Sunday I have the privilege of preaching in their church and in the afternoon Deb and I will be leading a session on Marriage and Ministry.
We then move on to Zimbabwe where we will be spending time with dear friends in Harare and Bulawayo. This is a nation we hold close to our hearts and I believe this will be our eighth visit. We are looking forward to seeing friends, speaking to leaders and visiting the Ebenezer farming project, which King’s is involved with. On Sunday I will be sharing God’s word at River of Life Church in Harare.
The final leg of our trip will be in Cape Town, South Africa. While we are there, we will be catching up with old friends in Jubilee Church and also meeting up with leaders from Common Ground Church. We will then enjoy a few days holiday before returning to the UK.
We would highly value your prayers as we travel.
