The last week we’ve had the excitement of travelling around the country a little bit, representing Wycliffe at various events. The events were for mainly student-aged people, and had a focus on world mission, so we were there to let people know a bit about how they can be involved in Bible translation.
Last Sunday we were at a church in Cambridge, before going on up to Hull on the East coast for a university event on Monday night. Then after travelling back down south again, we were up in Leeds on Thursday and Newcastle on Friday – the furthest north I have ever been (except in an aeroplane!)
All the events were actually really encouraging, and it was great to talk to people about the opportunities that there are for them to be involved in what God is doing overseas. Now we’re just trusting that God will prompt the right people to commit to being part of what he’s doing, either short- or long-term.
We really enjoyed seeing a part of the country that we don’t know very well, and seeing road signs of places that I’ve only ever seen on football scores! Parts of the north are really beautiful, and we have some photos (below) of a couple of the places we stopped off at.
The other highlight of the trip was seeing our friends Alistair, Jen and Ellie, who is almost a year old! Alistair was my best friend at secondary school, so it was exciting to be able to stay with them for a couple of nights and catch up with what they’re up to at the moment, not to mention getting to know little Ellie a bit!
