Sorry, but it does seem that the unbelieveable weather we’ve had – according to the current-day Michael Fishes – is going on until Easter…I was watching film of Scotland and Norhern Ireland on the TV, it’s unreal: it’s spring, for goodness sake, almost April, and this is the coldest March ‘since records began’. (Please can someone tell me: who, one day, and when, sat down and thought, ‘Today I will begin records: I can’t remember what happened yesterday, or last week, so records can’t begin then, they must begin today’?).
It is with some delight, then, for me and a few cronies – Chris, Katie, and Lee (plus Benny, but it’s warmer in Mexico than here already) – head 6,000 miles south-west, to where, at the moment, it is approximately 35C, and in two nights’ time I’ll have air conditioning on. Yessss! Just praying that Belfast City airport is functioning tomorrow evening, I’m sure Heathrow will be, then it’s Madrid, Bogota, and Cali. Groan….a lot of time in a hollow metal tube, under the control of a guy named Miguel (I guess…)
With everything seeming to function ok here, it is with sadness that today, I tried to use the external hard drives that Lee brought back from the USA for me, in November: alas, they don’t work. On them are some wonderful photographs, and lots of video testimonies, that I want to put on this new, light, bright, sleek website… maybe I’ll have to get Lee over here when we’re home…
On a more serious note, we’d all appreciate your prayers while we’re away: once upon a time, I’d have said ‘for safety’ as we’re in Colombia, but, thankfully, that really doesn’t apply so much these days – we just want to see the heaven opened, and a river of God’s wonderful power pour into the lives of people, churches, and into the streets of the wonderful city of Cali. I’d love to be able to walk ok, so your prayers there are requested!
And, hopefully, I’ll be here every – or most – days of the time away, reporting on the amazing works of the Holy Spirit. Thrilled just an hour or so ago to (provisionally) be invited back to Sweden, in June – at last I seem to be going to places at the right times of year for the good weather! Last time in Sweden it pitched in at -20C one day….
