Thanks for your prayers for September. I’m not sure where the month went… I’ve just come back from a renewal retreat looking at identity and authenticity! Its so important we know who we are IN Christ and also that we are real. I know with young people they automatically see through you if you’re not being real!
Please keep praying for our two new interns. It’s such a privilege to work with them! They are already having such an impact on the work and bringing new ideas. I’m looking forward to seeing how they develop throughout the year and the impact they will have in individuals lives.
Also do pray for Saturday as we have our second ABLAZE NOW event in Penrith (a Cumbria wide youth event) and there’s over 100 young people booked on.
If you could pray for Tommy our previous intern. His dad has an operation soon. Message me if you want to know when.
All is well personally for us. We are settling into our new home. Mart is working hard on his photography and architecture. We are still overwhelmed by Gods faithfulness to us!
Thanks for your prayers. October Youth Prayer Diary
Furness Network Youth Minister, The Journey
Vic has introduced two new interns this month. Here is a summary:
“Hello, my name is Thomas, I’m turning 20 in September. I come from a small town in Norway, and I really looking forward to meeting you guys. I really enjoy playing music, I play piano, guitar and sing, and hopefully I can teach you some of it. I chose to travel to England because I wanted to share what I have gotten, in such as my journey with God, or my experience. And I love to be around new people, to talk with them and help them in anyway possible.”
“Hi, my name is Henriette Marie Saga, but almost everybody just calls me Saga. I’m 21 years old and from a small town south in Norway. I love to have something to do and I really love sports, and my favourite is handball. I also like singing and dancing. I believe that this year will give me new experience and new friends.
I really looking forward to meet you all in England and to be able to spend this year with you all.”
Pray for Thomas and Saga. Pray for youth.
