Postcard from Göteborg January 2017
Gott Nytt År!   Happy New Year!  We’re back in Gothenburg after an enjoyable Christmas in Northern Ireland.  We give thanks for the blessing of family and friends.
Praise God for our Inside Track on the Christian life, with our youth group, last Saturday.  Thank-you for praying!  We had three talks throughout the day as well as food, bowling and a film.  One girl had travelled 1 ¾ hrs from Mullsjö to be with us for the day.  
It’s back to school for all 5 of us this week.  Andrea begins a new language course and Trevor will be preparing for an exam at the end of January.  As a family, we’ve just started Bruce Ware’s Big Truths for Young Hearts in our daily devotions.  What a joy to discover together the greatness of our God, may he be ‘the supreme treasure of our lives’!
This Saturday is a time of prayer and fasting for Gothenburg International Baptist Church.  Thank-you so much for being part of this prayerful partnership.  Together with you all, we look ‘to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think …‘ Trevor, Andrea, Emily, Grace & Alice xx

Winter is here! The days are rapidly getting shorter and colder, but we praise God for warm clothes and a cosy apartment.
Praise God for some new faces at our Youth Bible Study and please keep praying for fruit that lasts. Also we have a new family at church. They have been listening to preaching on the internet for many years and are now travelling 45 minutes to fellowship with us. Please pray for M and her six children. Two of the girls are planning to attend Friday night youth group. Trevor is preaching this Sunday on 2 Samuel 13 and would value your prayers as we consider the question ‘Can grace deal with disgrace?’
Andrea has successfully completed the ‘Swedish For Immigrants’ course and will now move on to the next stage of language study. Trevor will sit his ‘C’ level national test in December. Please continue to pray for the girls. We had three encouraging Parent-Teacher interviews. Trevor, Andrea, Emily, Grace & Alice xx

Sermon Audio: Romans 8


Over recent weeks we've been thinking about 'living by the Spirit' as we've worked through Romans 8. It's been a great reminder of life as a Christian, with the Holy Spirit empowering and equipping us. We've still a couple of sermons to go in the series, but here's what we've heard so far:

Romans 8: 1-11 No condemnation

Romans 8: 12-17 Children of God

Romans 8: 18-25 The hope of glory

Friday, 18 November 2016

Sermon Audio: Haggai


Earlier in the autumn, we had a short series in the book of the prophet Haggai. Haggai was building for God's glory as he encouraged the returning exiles to rebuild the temple which was lying in ruins. We heard God's word to us, as we seek to build for God's glory here in Aghavea.

Here are the sermons for you to listen again:

Haggai 1: 1-15 Consider your ways

Haggai 2: 1-9 Continue your work

Haggai 2: 10-19 Clean or Unclean?

Haggai 2: 20-23 The Signet Ring
