Postcard from Göteborg

Language study is as tough (for Trevor!) as it is thrilling, with the continuing gospel opportunities. Pray for Lena, one of the teachers, who accepted and has just finished reading Greg Gilbert’s ‘What is the Gospel?’.
A group from church took part in the annual Bergsjön run. Please pray for the Bergsjön / Kortedala area, where the church is situated. There are many social problems and in the last few weeks this has again resulted in gang violence. Pray for the witness of the church.
Praise God for a good conference over this past weekend with Dr. Voddie Baucham. The subject was ‘Does the Reformation still matter?’ with almost 100 people attending.
Our fortnightly Youth Bible Study has had a very encouraging start. We have eight young people (3 + 5!) and we’re now two sessions in with CY. Thank-you for praying! Trevor, Andrea, Emily, Grace & Alice xx
