The balloon launch in the park for Glengormley GB on Sunday (3 May)  afternoon as part of their 75th Anniversary celebrations.

Wow. Sooooo cold in Dublin this morning (24 April)! But looking forward after a little sleep to meeting the World Church guys from Britain with our MMS (I) people for conversations today and tomorrow. If you are a prayer please pray for us.

Returning today with Robin and Margaret Clarke to Dublin from Somerset West near Cape Town having heard a lot of what God is doing around the world.

On top of Table Mountain 24 April.  It is just beautiful. 29C!

In Portadown

In Portadown with some worthies last night (Sunday 19 April)

Had a great day yesterday (Sunday 19 April)...Cavehill's 68th Anniversary in the morning, Christian Aid's 70th Anniversary in St Anne's Cathedral, Belfast, in the afternoon, and Epworth, Portadown in the evening. Lazy day today to recover before flight to Cape Town tomorrow for a Community Transformation consultation over the next week.

Saturday (28 March) night at the 10th Sligo GB Display...their 25th Anniversary. I'm with Joan Moffitt who has been their Captain all that time and done an amazing job evidenced by a very happy group of girls and young women.
Congratulations Joan and 10th Sligo GB.

Chatting yesterday with Alderman Andrew Ewing, Mayor of Lisburn, on a visit to the city.

Visiting The Hub counselling service in Ballynahinch with Rev Ross Harte on Monday 9 March. They do a fantastic job.

Help! Questions for me on the Panel at Soul Mates on Saturday 8 March ...'Tell us about something really disgusting that happened to you.' and...'Why does God allow bad things to happen if he is love?' Hard questions but a really great gathering with around 300, 9-13 year olds. Thanks to everyone involved. I am so proud to be your President!
