Dave’s Diary: February 2017
Each month we give an update on key trips and events in Dave’s diary. Please use these updates to pray for Dave and Liz as they travel and serve churches in New Ground and beyond.
2 Feb Everyday Church - Dave
Throughout 2017 Dave will be working closer with the elders from all the Everyday church venues. Pray that together they might continue to fulfill the vision of the church.
3-4 Feb – Edinburgh - Liz
Liz is travelling with Hannah Silley and Melinda Sopp (from NCC) for a women’s conference. They will be speaking on how an extraordinary God can be involved in our daily lives along with interviews and prayer times. Pray they will be an encouragement, to impact and challenge and to build relationships.
8-9 Feb - Dave and the New Ground Core Team
Pray for continued good relationships and many encouragements. They will be talking about the church plants, Academy, future leadership and mobilizing New Ground.
10-12 Feb – The Hague – Dave & Liz
The church is in a period of transition as they continue to grow, with a new venue in Delft and then further afield. Dave will be meeting with the elders and preaching on Sunday. Pray that Dave & Liz will be a real blessing to the church.
17-18 Feb – Paris - Dave
The French Team will be meeting on Saturday. They will be welcoming the new administrator, Nicky Bodsworth. Pray that he settles in well and quickly to his new role heading up the admin for France. Pray for the whole team to keep the ‘big picture’ for France.
22-27 Feb – Jubilee Church, St Louis, USA – Dave and Liz
There is a gathering of USA Newfrontiers leaders at which Dave will be speaking, along with Jack Deere. He will also share about the broader Newfrontiers and New Ground world. Pray for good connectivity.
This is followed by a ‘Holy Spirit – themed’ conference for the church with teaching and times for receiving. Pray that many are filled, or refilled, with the Holy Spirit. On Sunday, as part of Jubilee’s 20th anniversary celebrations, Dave will speak at all 3 meetings.
28 Feb- 3 March – Washington, USA – Dave and Liz
PJ and Ashleigh Smyth have recently moved to Washington from Johannesburg, South Africa. Pray that there will be times of blessing for all the family as they settle in to their new world and that Dave and Liz will be a great encouragement to them.
