NEWS MIDDLE OF NOVEMBER 2011
Being able to catch up with people in Andover has been a bit like a pre-furlough experience. As I write, I am at the WEA (World Evangelical Alliance) MC (Missions Commission) tri-annual consultation near Stuttgart in Germany. This is due to finish tomorrow. God willing I am to reach home in Kenya on Monday 14th November.
It has been encouraging and challenging to be involved in many events at Andover Baptist Church in this trip. The main purpose of the trip being to attend this conference, this is also turning out to be a good time. It has given opportunity to make vulnerable mission known to the 230 or so international delegates to this conference; all missions leaders of one sort or another. The topic of the conference is 'disturbing mission'. We are not coming away with a nice package of 'what should be done', but rather disturbed in our hearts regarding the complexity of what is God doing around the globe.
I value your prayer for the month which I have to do ministry in Kenya before returning to the UK in December for my triannual furlough from Dec. 2011 to April 2012.
