Dear friends and pray-ers,
Happy New Year to you all and thank you so very much for praying for the Joy Foundation.
We Thank God for
- a time of rest and refreshing for all children, teachers and staff over the Christmas holidays
- the excellent candidates for our new administrator post, we welcome Clare Moore to this position.
- that Elaine our previous administrator is continuing her work with us in the BibleLincs team.
We Pray for:
- The children happily coming back to school after the holidays, particularly those for whom Christmas has been difficult.
- The current finances of the Joy Foundation: that individual donors and grant applications in the pipeline will be successful and keep us in the black.
- For Andy Housam, Helen Pennington, and the Biblelincs Team going into schools in the run up to Easter with the gospel message.
and news from the Bible Lincs team:
- The BibleLincs team took their Christmas workshops into two schools and met with about 150 children.
One class erupted into spontaneous Christmas song which was an absolute delight and it was a pleasure to hear the ideas of the children as to what Christmas is all about. They all shared and were challenged to think about who Jesus was and that He was born to save the world.
- One of the teachers made a point of returning to the team to express her gratitude and to say how she felt the parachute Nativity story had made the real Christmas Story so clear to her class of four year olds (seeing is believing!!!)
- We're always on the look out for volunteers – no prior experience necessary, just a love for working with children. Get in touch with us at the Joy Foundation if you think you'd like more information.
Thankyou for agreeing to pray for the work of the Joy Foundation.
