Today we met with Hazel and Barry Hicks. Went to one of Hazels churches and newly renovated Hall(Parish Hall) beautiful and making a big difference in their youth ministry and a place to share their hospitality.

Met Andrew and Joanne Quill and had lunch with them and then went on meet their new youth worker. Amy is a talented young woman with much potential and a real breath of fresh air for Andrew and Joanne. It was a very exciting day to visit with our dear friends and fellow sojourners in God's kingdom work. The Church of the Cross has truly been an inspiration to these folks and we are seeing the fruit of their labor over the past few years. My heart is filled to overflowing of God's generosity and faithfulness to His faithful people.
