We need help with the Church House

PaintingDiego Lopez has an update on the church house and a request for help:

The Manse is almost ready, and having plastered most of the rooms in the house there is a lot of painting to do. Many of you have been down to help with the painting, and I am very grateful for the positive progress. If any of you have as little as 1 or 2 hours to spare to help get this finished, it would be very much appreciated. The house needs to be completed by next Saturday and we are in need of a lot of help to get the painting finished, moving in furniture and clearing out the mess.

Please contact Diego if you can help.

*** UPDATE ***

Diego has pencilled in Tuesday evening from 6.30pm till late when he will be at the house. In addition on Wednesday morning Sue and Fran will be there helping out. If you can make either of these times - even for a an hour or two then let Diego know. Your help is very much needed and appreciated.

Pray for Didsbury Community Church

A note from Trevor for our prayer: Let's pray for Didsbury Community Church (DCC).

At DCC we have been experienced a difficult journey as many people have left (in good relationship) to explore ministry vocations and callings elsewhere. The church has sensed this loss very acutely and has had to face some difficult challenges and decisions. Having called a meeting in May in regard to our future we have committed ourselves to prayer and waiting on God. We are in this process still as we truly wait for God. It has been critical that we did not make any decisions out of an overwhelming sense of loss and sadness and are now in a more relaxed and peaceful place. We minister diligently and faithfully and celebrate continued community ministry in different ways and celebrate some good thigns and new people among us...but mamny of the realities on the ground are still with us. We have a growing "fringe" but a shrinking core and that is the main problem. Thank you for praying for us and please continue to do so. We transition into a period of prayer, reflection and discussion in July.


A letter from overseas

The church has received this email letter from Andrew, please continue to keep him in your prayers.



To date this this has been the most challenging period overseas both at a personal level and work level and I have appreciated the prayer support given to Liz and myself during this time. We had to make a difficult and challenging decision which was compounded by my being overseas and very much appreciate the pastoral support and prayers during the process. Whilst I miss the fellowship of the local church it is good to be updated via the bulletin.

Whilst challenging the work is going well and I have an excellent and very industrious co-trainer who has worked in the Gulf region for some 10 years. He is also an excellent cook and the highlight of our week is his preparing a dinner for us every Wednesday evening (which is the end of our working week - Thursday and Friday being our weekend days) and brunch on a Thursday! Currently we each have our own apartment which enables us to have personal space as we are working together for 10 hours daily. However we have been advised that the agency is giving up the lease on my co-trainer's apartment at the close of this contract period and upon our return we will share the apartment which I am in.

In February I requested prayer for protection in all areas of life and work and especially in regard to my integrity. This was due to the 'politics' of this type of work and I would once again ask for concerted prayers for protection in all areas of work and life due to 'circumstances'. Such prayers are not taken for granted and it is a source of encouragement to know that I am being upheld in prayer. (Whilst at the District Assembly a former Sunday School Superintendent advised me that he has been and is praying for me on a daily basis since I left N.I. in 1975!)

I wish to encourage the Pastoral Team, Church Board and Church Body by saying that I do pray for the church and related needs on a daily basis. May I express my thanks to everyone and in particular the Pastoral Team for your love and support and I look forward to seeing everyone in the near future.

Every Blessing,

Andrew J Robinson
