Gareth and Malou update December 2022

An excellent band led a time of praise and worship at the start of a youth meeting in a church in Lebane, south Serbia…………..

Greetings from Gran Canaria, Spain, where we are enjoying a few days’ holiday in the sun by the sea. As another eventful year draws to a close, it is good to be reminded that in a day of constant change, we have a Saviour who never changes and is ‘the same yesterday, today, and forever’. While the manger, the cross and the tomb are all empty, may our hearts be full as we remember HE ‘came into the world to save sinners’ – that’s all of us!
We wish each of you a Happy Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

Gareth & Malou Bolton
