Youth Getaway ‘12 - Gateway to God.
So in the morning we’re taking our youth from Church away for 5 days, coming back Friday.
We’re staying at this awesome converted farmhouse in Wales, surrounded by wonderful countryside, with coast nearby and a forest complete with big ol’ treehouse.
It’s going to be good to get out of this town. Both for the young people and for me too; I desperately need it.
Keep us in your prayers please - mainly that God would do a great work in guiding and captivating these young lives in an age where the sway and pulling power of the world and its promises can be all too difficult to withstand. I long to see Him shake the foundations of all they know and blow their minds wide open to His goodness and mercy…I want it more than I desire breath in my lungs.
Also pray for me - that I would understand afresh the value God places over my life, and that I would be given a new lease of life in Him that might enable me to serve these folks and all around me in the way they deserve.
There’ll be the odd Instagram post while i’m away..you can always message me if you find for some bizarre reason that you’re missing my madness, or you can get me on my twitter, fbook, email or my number if you have/want it…
I hope you all have a lovely week; I know i am not around nearly as often as i used to be, and i always apologise and say how much you all mean to me but honestly, you have no idea. So many beautiful minds, lives, hearts and faces line the walls of this place, almost all of whom are people I’ve never met. To those of you who recently added me, i would love to speak with you, and i WILL, so don’t go anywhere! However, i am currently thinking about the future lifespan of this blog and other things of mine - I mean it’s great what God has allowed me to share and learn, but perhaps it has run its course and is now a mere distraction as opposed to a useful tool that i’m not making the best use of.
We shall see.
Bless you all and may health, joy and peace be yours.
