Update at T-22
22 days left until the big move! Tomorrow we go down that way on holiday - the holiday was long planned, but little did we know it would come at such a fortuitous time.

We're camping near St. Austell (as this is where we were originally looking) and will be joined part of the week by our respected friends who no doubt will help us to prepare spiritually for the whole thing. So our nice relaxing holiday has turned into job-hunting and house hunting. Still, I can't think of anywhere nicer to be doing it than Looe!

Was looking over my e-mails in relation to our little mission and realised that we first felt this calling before we were married last year. We tried to explore it, but felt it was just too big and scary to do straight after we were married - I wonder how things would've been if we'd gone then? It's also amazing how in the busy-ness of life we managed to sort of forget it for 6 months!! Incredibly, the St. Martins came up then - how was is so surprising when it came up later?

One last thing: Today's verse of the day was Philippians 2:3-4 (naughty, it's 2 verses!) which says: "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. " It fits very well with our intentions, a good bit of encouragement!

one last thing, whilst doing one of my many google searches for Looe, came across Looe.org on which was the following advertisement:
Finding the Lord where potatoes once were stored
If your idea of a church congregation is a faithful few of advancing years then you've clearly not heard about the Grace Community Church, an independent Evangelical church, which meets in a converted farmhouse and potato barn at Morval near Looe and regularly has around 200 worshippers each Sunday and has recently opened two new churches in Bodmin and Torpoint. Interested? More information on the church and its service times may be found on www.graceccmorval.co.uk
We'll hopefully be making contact with them (along with any other Churches in the area), so expect some updates on that!

Don't expect many posts of the next week or so whilst we're away. I'm sure there'll be a big update the day after we come back!!

Yours in the Battle,
