It has been a fast and furious two weeks! We have driven over 2,129 miles and along the way we have had such a great time reconnecting with so many amazing people! It has been a privilege to preach God’s word and share our story. It has been so fun to be here…but we are ready to go to our home back across the pond. Our heart is for the ministry in Teesside and the United Kingdom! We are passionate about what the Lord is doing and what He is going to do in the days to come! It has always been our prayer that God would stir this generation in the United Kingdom. That He would start something of significance that individuals and entire communities would be changed. “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of Him.” 1 John 5:14-15 Please join us in praying for an awakening! Our confidence rests in Jesus and His finished work on the cross and victory over death and the grave. I love these lyrics by Matt Maher “Christ is risen from the dead trampling over death by death come awake, come awake! Come and rise up from the grave. Christ is risen from the dead; We are one with him again come awake, come awake! Come and rise up from the grave! Oh death! Where is your sting? Oh hell! Where is your victory? Oh Church! Come stand in the light! The glory of God has defeated the night!” We believe that God’s will for the United Kingdom is an awakening. We are praying that the body of Christ in the United Kingdom will be awakened…that HIS church will stand together in unity and shine brightly again. We believe that as the church comes awake and shines brightly that people will be drawn to the light of God’s amazing love and grace. Awakening in the church is the prelude to salvation and revival! So please join with us and continue to #prayforengland. The eyes of the world will be focused on the London Olympics from now until the end of August. Every time you hear or read or see anything about the Olympics please pause and #prayforengland. Pray for us in the NE of England and our labor of love there. As we leave here our hearts are full of gratitude for so many who have spoken words of encouragement to us and prayers over us. We are blessed to have you in our lives and believe that God is sending us through you!
