Please be praying for me as I'm flying out to Lithuania this morning to spend a weekend with the church we work with there in Klaipeda. Many of you will have met Saulius, his wife Sanna and other people from their church when they've come over for to Bracknell for Willow events and some of the past Real conferences. Ben Davies, Ken Bothamley, Lee Layton-Matthews and a youth team have also been out there, but this will be the first time I've visited. I'll be meeting with their leaders, as well as speaking to the whole church on Sunday.
Some of our Academy students are already out there - it will be fun to see them in a different context. I'm flying out with Leon and Daiva Johnson. For those of you who don't know them they've lead Alpha for the last couple of years, and Diva is Lithuanian so should be a real asset out there. They are a great couple, and I'm looking forward to spending time with them too.
I'm being picked up tomorrow (Thursday) morning at 3am for a 7am flight from Stanstead, so if you pray for nothing else please ask for energy for all of us! But more than that please pray we'll know God's presence with us, and will be a real blessing to all of the people out there.
