The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and for evermore. Psalm 121:8

Comings and Goings

On the 3 of August 2013, suddenly our life changed. Many will agree with me that life is often full of surprises, some good and some less good!

In our case, the joy of travelling the world, discovering what God is doing, having great fellowship with our Salvationist family, and preaching the word, is now very much a part of our daily routine. At the same time, we find that the sense of responsibility and urgency as well as our total dependence on God has increased.

The challenges but also the opportunities are greater than ever before as is our ability to influence some of the strategic priorities of The Salvation Army are certainly more real, which can sometimes be quite a daunting prospect!

What has not changed is our calling, our relationship with God, the joy of serving the Lord. However  the fact that we have experienced God’ s presence in our own life and in our family, in the past and in the present gives us the certainty that God  will be with us in the future too.

So for all of you, who are facing changes, know that God is the same, yesterday, today and forevermore! Remember what the Lord has done in your life, and look with confidence to the future.
