Romania 2018

A team of seven from Wales (including Martin and Dana Davis, and Carol and Fran Hoey) returned a week ago from Romania where they helped to run a week-long activity camp for the Lupeni and Uricani children’s homes.

Please pray that the experience of the children and their exposure to the Word of God over this time will have a lasting effect on their young lives.

Graig Holiday Club

The Palm Tree Island Holiday Club runs at our Graig building during the last week of the school holidays Tuesday 28 to Friday 31 August for primary school children years 1 to 6.  There will be games, craft, songs and exciting Bible stories.  Please feel free to send your children and see Mark Dorey if you (or the older young persons in your family) would like to volunteer some help.

GTFM Sunday Mornings

I have been presenting the Sunday morning Sunrise Show on GTFM between 7 and 8am. I am playing 50% Christian music 50% contemporary and am doing a Pause for Thought section too.

I would really value your prayers as this is an opportunity for RCT to hear some really good Christian music with a strong Christian message, but as GTFM do not have Christian tracks, I have to bring them in myself and this is where I need your help - do you have any Christian CDs? - not concert ones where there’s lots of clapping, that I could borrow and use for the show? I have a fair selection but I want to play different artists over the weeks and not the same ones.

Also, if you would like to come on air and be interviewed, that would be fab too!  Please drop me a line if you can help.  Blessings  Mark Dorey
