Gareth and Malou’s update: September 2023

Negotiating with difficulty a crumbling, narrow and waterlogged strip of land between two paddy (rice) fields

As we are currently experiencing late summer weather in the UK, we thank God for continued open doors and opportunities to minister in various countries. We have now been back a week from an intensive 2 week visit to south Asia entailing 12 flights to three cities. This morning, Gareth was speaking on Hebrews 11 and was challenged again by what it means to live a life of faith. We encourage anyone who has been asked to take on a new responsibility to serve the Lord not to let fear prevent you from accepting it. Be blessed and encouraged, Gareth & Malou Bolton
