Martha and I begin leading a marriage course tonight. The theme of the course is ‘How to build a healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime’. We are very much looking forward to leading it. Our plan this time is to run the course with a small group of three couples, and then sometime in the autumn run a larger course and use it as an outreach in the local community. The course lasts for 8 weeks with some follow up later. Please pray with us that the Lord would really bless our time with these three couples and that their relationships with each other would grow stronger and stronger each week.
We are just got back from Trinity church’s weekend retreat. All three congregations get together for a few days every year. We had about two hundred people this year at the weekend. It was good to catch up with friends we don’t see too often. The weather was not very good, it rained all day Saturday. But that did not stop the kids from having a great time. There were lots of activities; we had a talent concert, crafts, soccer from 11:00pm till 1:30am. And great times of worship and teaching.
