What a wonderful summer we have had in the UK and many of us will have enjoyed the unusually warm weather. However, whether this weather is a result of Global Warming or not, we have seen our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world suffering climate change, leaving many in crisis situations. One house group in the church that I attend is studying a new Bible course. The first session went back to Genesis where God declared that His creation was Good and, after man was created, the creation was Very Good. What a great sadness to see what man has done to this wonderful creation.
The team of Chile for Christ are aware of the needs in all parts of the world but the work of the charity is committed to helping people in Chile and bringing the Gospel to them. In this newsletter you will hear about our activities that have taken place since the last newsletter.
I mentioned in the last newsletter that Rosalie Langley-Judd felt called to work in Chile and I had the privilege of being part of an email group of supporters when she spent two and a half weeks testing her calling. She continues to seek guidance and we continue to pray for her.
My greatest joy this summer was meeting with Gerd and Rosi Bergmann when they were on leave in the UK. They have been sent to Chile by YWAM in Germany and have set up a Biblical Institute for Transformational Leadership. Courses are planned and delivered to Chilean pastors who, in turn, deliver the material to others when they get back to their own areas. Also, as part of the residential accommodation there is a flat available for pastors who are in need of rest away from their duties. Chile for Christ makes a regular contribution to support a pastor needing this facility but, from the generosity of your donations we were able to contribute to the improvement of the sewerage system. When we met with Gerd it was a delight to hear him explain and discuss with my husband the technical details and, from my part, I knew that it had been money well spent.
I pray that the Chile for Christ team will continue to spend your kind donations wisely and thank you for your support.
May God bless you all.
