As you know we do a lot of traveling. Sometimes I think how nice it would be to see the world from a vacation point of view. It is an interesting, complex and beautiful world.
This past couple of months, one or both of us, has been in England, Northern Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, France, Ukraine and Brazil. None of this was for vacation. We ministered many times in Training Centers, Churches, Leader’s meetings and had great conversations with many leaders and students.
Helen Keller said this: The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.
We love to watch faces as they hear the Word of God that brings revelation or is setting them free. This touches our hearts and so many times we wish we could capture these moments and send them to you. You would be thrilled to pour more of yourselves into these people. Thanks so much for making this possible.
Besides all the traveling and ministering we needed to find a place to live just outside London. Seemed like we were running out of time, but found something we liked and got it finalized. Move-in day was May 10. Had to go a little further out from the city and spend more than we planned, but we think we will enjoy the new place. It’s just off the River Thames about 40 minutes west of Heathrow airport.
We are getting closer to the first members of our London team being in one place. Sometimes it seems like things take forever and then we need to remember that about 2000 years ago Jesus said, “I will build my church … “. So a few more months is workable. At the same time we know there are some important things to accomplish and we want to get started so we can complete these assignments.
I like what Acts 20:24 in the New Living Translation says: But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
We all have assignments and many of them run together in ways we may not see. We are stronger together and we build better together.
For the team coming into place and enlarging/preparing offices we could still use another $50,000 very soon. We believe this is very good ground to sow seed and a place where there will be an abundant return.

Thanks again for reaching out and touching the world.
