Julia's Ordination

On October 16th at 2.30 pm Julia will be ordained at Romsey Baptist Church. The service will be a celebration of the way that God has led her over the past few years and an opportunity to pray for his strength and grace for the next part of the journey!

After the service there'll be tea and cake and a chance to chat.

All are welcome - but do let us know so that we can ask the lovely people at RBC to make enough cakes! And feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or if the directions don't make sense! Sadly the church doesn't have a carpark so leave a little extra time to find a parking space in town. Hope to see you on the 16th!

Half-Marathon


Today James ran in the Run to the Beat half-marathon in London, raising money for the charity HopeHIV. Despite a very cold start(!) he finished the race in 2hrs 31mins, coming in 9538th place (out of 17000+ runners). 

Many many thanks to all those who have already sponsored him -so far £374 has been raised. If you haven't sponsored him but would like to do so you still can by visiting http://www.justgiving.com/jhenley. Thanks!

New Chapter!

From the piles of boxes and mess you'll guess that this weekend we moved into the International Mission Centre (IMC) to commence training with BMS.  Apart from a little chaos and a few low beams (resulting in a few bruises for James!) our flat is really nice and should make a lovely home for the next nine months or so.



Our course starts next week so for now we're unpacking, getting settled in and preparing to celebrate our first anniversary in a few days!  Time has flown so fast this past year and we can't believe we've already been married a year or that in such a short time we'll be leaving for South America.



Please keep praying for us as we settle in, as we celebrate this weekend and as we start the course with the other mission trainees.  And please keep in touch!  We'd love to hear from you.
