Welcome to Tennant Across the Pond

Thanks for coming by--and welcome to Tennant Across the Pond, my online journal which will serve to update friends and family about my upcoming trips to Formby, U.K.

I will be in Formby twice in the next six months, serving with Formby Baptist Church. The dates for the trip are:

March 5-22 and May 16-July 12.

For updates, info, and reflections, read on.

Two Months From Today

In just two months from today, I will be heading to Formby for part one of my ministry there.

And there is plenty to do.

Over the next two months, Formby 2010 team and I will be meeting weekly to plan events and other ministry activities. I will also be writing sermons and bible studies, and coming alongside the newer members of the team to encourage them and help them prepare for Formby.

Please pray for us as we start meeting regularly--we have not gotten together very often as a team, and so there is quite a lot of team building to happen yet. We need prayer for team unity, for true brotherhood and sisterhood, and for us to love one another as Christ has loved us.

Also, pray for vision, discernment, and ears that are able to hear Jesus' voice. There is a lot of planning to do, and a lot of moving parts to organize. Pray that we can do this with excellence, so that when we arrive on the ground in March, we can focus on people, not plans.

Our desire is to hear "the voice behind us" and accomplish God's will for His glory.

"And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying,
"This is the way, walk in it,"
when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left."
--Isaiah 30:21
