I have now finished my studies at St Andrews Hall (SAH) and said goodbye to my Spanish church. It was a sad time at SAH and many tissues were used as I said farewell to people that I had spent so much time with. We were encouraged from 1 Thessalonians to keep speaking and living by the truth of the gospel as we prepare to go to Asia, The Pacific, The Middle East and Europe to serve the Lord.
For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction.
I have had the last two weeks in Sydney spending time with my super charming God-son and also with friends. It was also really encouraging to visit my old church in Sydney – Marrickville Road Church – and share with them about my journey to Spain. I am delighted that the church has agreed to partner with me in prayer and that I can have this continued relationship with them. The next 2 months I am back in New Zealand on what is called Deputation. In this time I am looking forward to visiting churches and other friends that are partnering with me and to serve and share in these Christian communities
On Tuesday I arrived back in Christchurch and on the way to stay with my parents I had a car crash. Praise God no one was hurt and I had insurance to cover the other cars involved. It was amazing to feel calm and peace through the whole ordeal. Unfortunately my insurance does not cover the cost of my car and so I am waiting to know if it is worth repairing or not. We are still looking for cars for Katie until early September. If you can help out please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
