Back from Angola

Well as you may have just read I am back. The last few days have been a little hectic. Flying across countries, or leading an Alpha conference. In fact I’ll say a little bit about that.

On Saturday we ran the first ever Alpha type thing in Angola. The Alpha Course is a course for people to find out more about Christianity. (Click Here to See More) Most of the Anglican churches in the capital city Luanda turned up and the day was very well received. A major problem is resources for the course, as quite frankly there are none in the entire country or within a 1000 miles of the capital city. However, there is an opportunity there to begin this in the country and one that I am very keen on.

We also spent some time at the beach! I know, being an evangelist is not always hard. The sun, sand and Atlantic Ocean always provides a nice background to some contemplative time! Seriously though, it was nice to spend a little time at the end of the trip relaxing, also knowing you will be home soon. For me that is always the biggest drain, the emotion of being away from home. Every time I think that I have cracked it, bang there it goes again. It probably always will.

Anyway, I’ll be back into things in the next few days. In the last two weeks however, I have felt re-invigorated. The last 2-3 months I felt as if God has really got my attention, and the more I spend time looking at Him, the more I am understanding what it is he wants me to do in my life.

One thought on “Back from Angola

  1. Very exciting thing to be involved in — starting Alpha in Angola. I have seen Alpha accomplish great things, both here where I live in the US and in England, which I visit every few years. I can imagine it having an even bigger impact in a place where there is an even more active hunger for God.

    God bless you, your family, and your work.
