This week our church is having a mission week. You can find out more about it here.
There are lots of different events happening. It should be fun.
It did get off to a slightly tense start in our home when the email about the cooking party (to make meals for people from our church who need them) came with the information addressed to women only. As Chris does lots of the cooking in our house, it irritated him enough to cook a meal for our friends who've just had a baby. That was good, since then I didn't have to do it.
We're praying it will be a good week to build connections with the local community. Church on Sunday will then be an open day that we hope will encourage new people to come along. We are singing lots of our favourite songs in the service. I am playing the piano that day so I am excited.
I'm hoping to get the kids involved too. I'm taking them to the local special school after school one day this week to help cover books. And I am also taking Rosie to a puppet show in the park for preschoolers.
Please pray that this will be an opportunity for many to come to know Christ and for us to make Him known.
