The Queen has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history,
becoming a much loved and respected figure across the globe.

Her extraordinary reign has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch,
undertaking many historic overseas visits. Known for her sense of duty and her
devotion to a life of service, she has been an important figurehead for the
UK and the Commonwealth during times of enormous social change.


"I think I speak for my generation when I say that the example and continuity
provided by The Queen is not only very rare among leaders
but a great source of pride and reassurance".

The Duke of Cambridge

“This can’t be done” 

Do you know how many times I have heard this when working with as
many children as we do? When I came to New York over 40 years ago,
nobody believed we could do what we’ve done here and now all over the world.

When Nehemiah stood on the rubble of what used to be a wall of protection,
he had more than his share of resistance. But he had a decision to make.
In the face of constant criticism and discouragement,
he was determined to keep going.

He battled the same thingsthat you and I do. It doesn’t matter whether it’s family,
ministry, or a job, when they say, “It can’t be done,”
you can either get discouraged or you can become determined.
It’s your call!

When that man picked me up from the street corner and sent me to a Christian youth camp, even as he faced great personal adversity, that decision is now influencing the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.  Those are the kinds of decisions that it’s going to take to rebuild a generation at a time like this. Nehemiah decided “The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding ...” Will you make the decision to stand on the wall, to pick up a shovel and sword and rebuild with me?

Dear Friends,
‘I am heading to the UK Parliament on Monday to talk to MPs,’ shares Ephraim Tsegay, from our East Africa Team, ‘because there is an urgency to act now in order to save lives across the Horn of Africa.
‘Three years of failed harvests have left Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda facing a severe hunger crisis. It is my hope that through these meetings in parliament, the UK Government will better understand the challenges facing the region, what Tearfund and the local church is doing, and the crucial part they can play in alleviating the crisis.
‘A verse that is sustaining me is 1 Thessalonians 4:13: “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.” I lost my mum on 1 May, and was unable to attend the burial in Ethiopia, due to personal reasons. My grief is deep. However, this verse encourages me not to grieve like the rest of mankind, as I have a hope in the Lord that she will be with him. ‘Hope is something that gives us the energy to come out of stressful situations and inspires us to look forward and move on. At the moment, millions of people in the Horn of Africa are on the brink of famine. This situation breaks my heart, but it is not without hope.

A Lifeline For The Conflict-Weary In Ukraine
As bombs continue to rain down over cities across Ukraine, our teams are labouring around the clock, in collaboration with local churches, to purchase, transport, and distribute massive quantities of food and items such as hygiene kits, blankets, and warm clothing. Many are struggling to survive, like Oksana who fled violence in her hometown with her family and shared with us, “we need everything—because we have nothing.” A gift today can help to distribute emergency food and essential items to families in need like Oksana’s.

Scripture: Acts 1:8
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth.”
 
 Prayer:
May we seek to overflow with the power of the Holy Spirit and so have
boldness and grace to seize every opportunity to effectively show
and share Jesus to everyone we meet.  Amen
