14th May 2015 – Ministry Update

Greetings from a joyfully damp and cloudy Jos!
The rains have come! Thank you so much for praying. The day after we sent out the last update asking you to pray for rain, it came! Every afternoon since then the sky has been pregnant with rain and most day the waters have broken (did I just take that analogy a little too far?!).

We are in the middle of the mad transition period of finishing up work key jobs at work, sorting out the house and finishing term prior to heading to the UK for the summer. As a result this is going to be a very brief update!
Please do pray for us during this transition, especially for Tim as he has several really important jobs he has to get done before we leave.
Please pray for me that I can also finish well here and start to look forward to there.
Pray for Dan that he can finish term well.

Much love,
Tim, Ali and Dan

7th May 2015 – Ministry Update

Greetings from a parched Jos,

IMG_4140Somehow the rainy season still has not started. It is really about a month overdue now. The last rainy season trickled to a stop around 7 months ago and water is now becoming increasingly hard to find. We are blessed to have a well on our compound that, although getting close, has not quite dried up yet. The city seems to have stopped providing water through the pipes and many people are really struggling to find enough water for their families. Please pray that the rains will start this week, they are desperately needed, not just for people now but also for their crops to provide for them for the rest of the year. This seems to be a problem across West Africa, not just in Nigeria. So, here is an opportunity to do that rather unusual thing and pray for rain!

Tim’s meetings in Kenya went well, thank you for praying! They were intense and he has come back with a bit of a backlog of work, but overall it was a positive time. Dan and I did fine, but were very happy to have him back safe and sound.

We are now in the final few weeks of Hillcrest term, school ends for the year on the 21st of May and will not resume until the 6th of August. We are also in our final few weeks of preparation for coming to the UK for the summer! We will leave Nigeria on the 25th of May, a few days after the end of term and plan to be in the UK until the 1st of August.

We hope to meet up with many of you who live in the UK while we are there! Once we have a better idea of where we will be when, we’ll let you know and hopefully you can fit us in! One big need we have for the time we will be in the UK is a car. We really can not afford to hire a car for the whole time but we need to do a lot of travelling around to see you all! If you happen to have a car you could lend us or know someone who might be willing to do so we would be hugely grateful. If you do not have such a thing at your disposal then please could you pray that someone else will! We know how powerful the prayers of God’s people are!
