Will you partner with us? Our ministry (Manuela & I) is funded in part through part time work. Whilst this goes some way to cover our living costs, we are in need of ministry financial partners. Despite the state of the economy, we truly believe that we serve a God who is never in recession. God gives us all the opportunity to bless one another—with such a
clear example in Acts and through the life of Jesus. Especially in this economic climate we believe that it is time for us all to live this biblical example. Please, pray for more financial supporters! Please do get in touch if you or your church would like to know more about supporting us in this way.
“Some are called to Go, and other are called to support.”

An African Proverb... There is a healthy tension between the following scriptures...
Isaiah 54:2 - Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.
Proverbs 19:2- It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way. Y O U C A N M A K E A D I F F E R E N CE
“If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far...Go Together!” May God give us the grace to stay on His agenda and build strong foundations to reach the Least Reached People Groups in the UK and the world.
Praise God! Page 3
