Well it feels like winter is coming to us – we have been blessed with wonderful weather this summer and even today the sun is shining, but it is getting much colder. We are having our warehouse sale on Saturday (10th November) and, if it’s anything like last year, I will have very blue toes after standing all morning selling CDs and DVDs. If you like a bargain please come along – there is always lots of items on sale. Hopefully it will be more successful than our last book sale – we stood in the rain (and some snow even) for several hours and then gave up……at least we have the chance to sell everything this weekend under the cover of the warehouse.
Just over a week ago Alistair and I were invited to the Hull Freetown Society Celebration to meet the new mayor of Freetown, Sierra Leone. Yvonne Aki Sawyerr was elected in March this year and has a passion to see her town improve. We were there to discuss sending medical aid into the hospitals of Freetown and the clinics. This is a very exciting partnership for Jacob’s Well Appeal as it will enable us to help a country that has suffered so much recently and needs our support.
We have already half filled the container and will be sending it out this month. Hopefully this is the first of many. We have wanted to work in Sierra Leone but did not have the right contacts. It is wonderful how God opens doors for us.
Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God 1 Corinthians 10:31
