Postcard from Göteborg February 2017
Thank-you so much for your prayers for Trevor’s national tests. He has now passed level ‘C’ in Swedish for Immigrants and begins the ‘D’ course this week. Please pray for a group from the language class who are planning to come and hear Trevor preach in church on 19th February. Remember especially H from Kurdistan and P from Uganda for whom this will be their first visit. On the last weekend of February, Trevor will also speak at a men’s weekend in Värmland (although it will be anything but warm!).
Andrea continues to be encouraged with the Ladies’ Bible Study. Usually one of the girls will accompany Andrea, but since the February study is in our home, both Emily and Grace can be part of this.
In our Youth Bible Study we’re in the middle of the Bible Overview and then we’ll go to 1 Thessalonians and The Changed Life in March. There’s been a lot of sickness in the group since Christmas and we’re praying for stability but most of all for real Word & Spirit growth.
It was lovely to have Eric, one of our elders from Coleraine, and his wife Gillian, with us last weekend. We praise God for all who are partnering with us here in Sweden. Trevor, Andrea, Emily, Grace & Alice xx

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
