When we sent out our last update in early January, who could have imagined what the next few months would hold!
From pandemics to protests to (for us) parenting, 2020 has been a whirlwind year. Please read to hear a bit more how we’ve been doing, and a few pics of our newest addition, Joel! He has brought joy to many in the midst of the pandemic, appearing on Zoom classes at Regent and bringing a smile to visitors. We hope his little smile brings joy to you too.
This has not been an easy season for so many round the world, especially in Peru. Please keep the people of Peru in your prayers. We think of our friends Anna, Paul and Sarah and the kids, Pat and the Shalom centre, Pastor Juan Carlos and Penny, Jorge Zamudio and the Cathedral crew, and Santiago (also a new father!), Melany, Karla and all the youth from Jesus el Nazareno and ask that you remember them in your prayers. In the meantime, we lament, we cry out “How long, Lord?” with the Psalmist in Psalm 13, and patiently await until hope returns, and praise is liberated on our lips again.
Lastly, if you know of anyone needing somewhere to live in Lisburn for anything from 4-9 months beginning in Sept/Oct, let us know, as our current tenants are moving out at the end of the August!
