Dear <<First Name>>,
We just returned from a five-day visit to Caterham in Surrey (the town we moved away from). We stayed with friends, visited friends, caught up with friends and enjoyed the company of friends. Sadly, of course, some people were away on holiday, so we also missed seeing some friends. It is such a blessing to get some time face-to-face like this. We had two picnics (one with church friends and one with the homeschool club Melanie and the children used to attend), met the gorgeous newborn son of friends, and enjoyed several delicious meals along the way! We can't believe it is a year since we moved from Caterham to Chippenham (about two-hours by car), so it was great to get back and see people we love.
This year has been very busy with lots of changes for us as a family. We've been settling into life in Chippenham, launching both Cor Deo and Pillars, continuing various ministry involvements and continuing to grow and learn what it takes to be a God-pleasing family. We are currently, and finally, writing a longer prayer letter, which will be with you soon . . . so watch this space for more news!
Serving Him together,
Peter & Melanie and the family
Thank you so much for standing with us in prayer - it is such a blessing to serve our Lord together. As always, please do let us know how we can be praying for you too!
Three brief prayer requests:
* Next week we are starting the next year of homeschool, which will be Joel's first year. Please pray for Melanie and the children as they eagerly jump into a new academic year.
* Peter will be in Holland from the 26th-31st of August at the OM new recruits' conference. Please pray for his sessions to go well and make a difference in the lives of those joining OM this summer.
* Peter is preparing a series from Romans on Salvation to preach in September. Please pray for this series to touch lives.
