Myself and Katica had a great long weekend in Belgium. I taught at the Free Methodist churches in both Oostende and Diksmunde. Teaching on the subject of healthy churches was very well received!!! All the sessions were well attended and we had some dynamic discussion!

I love their idea of a basket full of love. Here church members can put food products etc into the basket and those in need can take
out whatever they want.

These folks were so welcoming and friendly! With excellent fellowship and meals after each session, Katica and I were blessed to have spent the weekend with them! Please continue in prayer for Pastors Jackie and Lawrence and the members of their congregations.

2016, the year ahead.

calendar_2016_template_round_button_6815001.jpg2016 is shaping up to be a great year! We have so much planned already and are excited about what the Lord has planned for us this coming year. We want to share a few of our planned trips and ministry events with you and ask you to partner with us in prayer for this year.

In January we hope to be in Denmark for a few days as we celebrate the wedding of a wonderful Christian young couple. I was very honoured that they asked me to do a pre-wedding blessing for them over the Christmas period. Please pray for Erin and Jonathan as they prepare for married life together!

In March I hope to visit with Free Methodist church leaders in Belgium and France and serve them by helping to further equip these men and women of God and hopefully be an encouragement to them also.

Come the Summer we hope to have a team of eight people join us from America who will serve by helping run a five day evangelistic camp at the orphanage we serve in on a weekly basis. In June I hope to travel to Ukraine to help equip church leaders there and God willing we will travel to Ireland in August for a few weeks to talk at churches and have a vacation.

We will also continue with our Bible study group and weekly ministry at a local orphanage in Győr. Kati and I will also continue our twice monthly trips to Budapest (she will continue teach English to social workers and I will teach English at a family help center for a few weeks). We also hope to continue our work supporting and helping the needy of Győr and we are actively trying to gain access to a local center for the homeless. Kati has already made good contact with them and we believe the Lord is opening this door before us.

We are grateful for your prayers and support and are thankful that we can call you our partners in ministry! We pray that you are all blessed in 2016!
