Live From London

Greetings from the capital of the world!
I can’t remember how to get in to my email from a remote location, so I will use my blog as a means of communication. If anyone from the office reads this please leave a comment with the address. Also, if anyone from music team reads this, please copy and send this in an email to the rest of the team.
We’ve had a challenging trip so far. Mostly from the constant traveling around the city we’ve been doing. We are all suffering from an almost constant state of motion sickness. This week we have already visited a Hindu temple, a Sikh gudwara, and a Muslim mosque. We spent an afternoon hanging out at the Hatch’s house, eating kebab and jumping on their trampoline. We spent a few hours going door-to-door, inviting people to the church and taking a survey about the spiritual and physical needs in the community. We went on a prayer walk around a mall that was in the center of one of the neighborhoods. The worship has been very energetic and enthusiastic. We are working on a Punjabi style arrangement of “David’s Dance”.
Today is our day off. Sarah and I are visiting with her parents and are going to spend the day doing something fun with Joanna. The rest of our team is going in to Central London to see the sites.
Joanna is having a blast this week. She has been a little hard at times to take care of, but overall she has not caused too much distraction thanks to the Hatches and Sarah’s parents. Yesterday, Sarah’s mom took Joanna in the morning, and then Joanna (who was only just recently weened) stayed over night with her “Gigi”. What a blessing for Sarah and I!
Please pray for Sarah who has felt sick for the entire trip. Please pray for our team as we continue to go in to the community with book tables and door-to-door surveys for a few more days.
Praise God:
1. Our team has a great sense of unity and we love hanging out and laughing together.
2. We are all excited about what we are learning and experiencing and we have all expressed a desire to apply what we’ve learned to our context at home.
3. The worship has been very free and easy with great joy.

    Glad to hear more about your trip, and I know Mom is having great time with Joanna. I’ll be praying for Sarah especially to feel at least a little better.

    Glad you guys are safe and things are going well. I hope Sarah is feeling better. You guys are quite brave traveling with such a little one! I’ll try to remember to pray for your ministry there that God would do great things through your being there. Can’t wait to hear how the rest of your trip goes.
    Tell the Hatches I said hello and miss them greatly!
