As many of you know, we were due to have Simon Guillebaud (pronounced Gilbo!) as our guest speaker. Simon is a friend of Katie’s (and known to some at All Saints) having met one another on a mission training programme before they headed off to Burundi and Uganda respectively. Simon is passionate about mission and telling others about Jesus, whatever the cost, and had an extraordinary call from the Lord to serve Him in Burundi. We have decided to postpone Simon’s visit to All Saints, but if you want to listen to him now please click here!
It was recorded by Simon a month ago now, but is nonetheless very relevant and will give you a brief insight into his work and life, and I hope will whet our appetites for his future visit. If you read ‘Christianity’ magazine his work with his Great Lakes Outreach organisation was featured in the lead article in the January 2020 issue.
Mission Sunday 31st May this year will now be focussed on hearing reports from a number of our own Mission Partners in our Zoom Service – we plan to have ‘live’ interviews with some of them. The following week our Thoughts for the Day will also feature updates from a number of our Mission Partners. I am grateful to Mervyn Roberts and the Mission Committee for their work in organising the Service and our support for Mission Partners.
Enjoy listening to Simon
