Report from our summer travels into Africa

Sandra and I returned from a trip into Zambia and Zimbabwe in mid August with myself visiting both nations, Sandra travelling to Zimbabwe.    We wanted to write and encourage you with the excellent time we spent in both countries, seeing the grace and favour of God poured out.

It has been quite a number of years since we were in these nations and so it was good to pick up on the covenant friendships and relationships we have there, developed over many years.    The brothers all send their love and greetings to everyone in the UK, they were thrilled to receive us there once again.

The purpose of my trip into Zambia was to gather with apostolic ministries from the across the southern belt of the African Continent, discuss our plans and intent for the extension of the kingdom in that region, and across the globe and to consider what we could do Together, looking to God to assist us as we seek to lay down truth for future generations to build with.     During our time there we consolidated our relationships and intent to stand together for the Kingdom, we decided to call the relationship of families “Restorers Relational Movement” as it is our desire to become a movement of friends together, progressing kingdom advance and seeing our towns and cities restored.   We discussed teaching and training programmes and the development of Covenant College in South Africa and planned an International conference to take place in Zimbabwe next August, as well as deciding to host further Round Tables in the African context.

The International Conference which will be held in Zimbabwe next August will be open for all to attend and we would love to have a large contingent from the UK there with us, in 2017 we will be in Zambia for this International Conference.   Please would you encourage as many folk as possible to consider making this trip, start a saving scheme now and lets bless our family in Africa with our presence there.   The conference will take the form of a bible week and will therefore have accommodation available, which would be of a suitable standard.    This would be an ideal time to introduce any young people with you to a wider view and understanding of the kingdom of God and the large, diverse family they belong to.

If you have any questions on this please do get back to me.    We will also host a Round Table in the African context next year.

During the discussions we talked regarding the 'Apostolic Round Table', it was felt by the Holy Spirit that in 2016 we should be together in the African context.     We agreed that we would connect the ‘Round Table' with the 'Africa Aflame' conference in Cape Town with Cedric and Denise.   The 'Africa Aflame' conference is scheduled for 30th March though to 3 April 2016 pre-ceeding this conference we have set the dates for the 'Apostolic Round Table' as 28th, 29th, 30th March 2016, knowing this leads on from the Easter Weekend.   Cedric wishes to extend his invitation to us all to be part of 'Africa Aflame' and to make a contribution to the conference along side him.       The Venues for both times will be in the Cape Town area, hoping that our new college property will be purchased by then, for travel arrangement we advise you to travel into Cape Town.

Let us pursue together the onward development of our family across the globe.   We will send further details as they become available.
