Angry Birds is a mobile phone game that was first launched back in 2009. If you’ve never heard of it, then simply ask any young person and they will probably act like its ancient history! And I guess in some ways it kind of is, as since the original came out, Angry birds has released 26 more ‘Angry Birds’ spin – off games.
So why am I telling you about this? This past Sunday night at Llandudno Youth for Christ I had the privilege of leading a ‘life-sized’ version of Angry Birds as part of an outreach night. It was awesome! And I’m not just talking about flinging bouncy balls at green balloons (which was a lot of fun) but more importantly the fact that young people in Llandudno were engaging with the message of the Gospel.
How? Well, we’ve been building up to this night in our other weekly meeting ‘Reverb’ that runs every Thursday after school. And our goal has been to see new people make the jump from the fun, relationship-building ‘Reverb’ meetings to the more intentional, disciple-making ‘Redefine’ (the night we had the special Angry Birds evening on). And it’s working! Young people are coming from the school, town, etc. to Reverb and then to Redefine and ultimately to Christ! Fantastic! The birds might be angry but I’m Happy!
Outreach in Warrington
The Family Fun day with Bethesda Church in Warrington was a huge success. I’m looking forward to partnering with them for an all-age service this coming Easter!
School Outreach Week
I have the massive opportunity of going into Prestatyn H.S. later this month to give my testimony as part of a series of music lessons.
Visit From my Brother
We’re looking forward to a visit from my brother this month. It will be great to catch up with him.
After a very busy summer, we’re really looking forward to a week off with the family this October. We’re hoping to take the kids to some fun places around North Wales.
My current visa expires at the end of November and I’ve started the application for an extension for another 3 years. Please pray the process goes smoothly and that I will be granted a further 3 years.
Praises and Prayers:
- Young people to make the jump from ‘Reverb’ to ‘Redefine’ to Christ
- Korey’s visa extension to be granted for another 3 years
- Big ideas for Colwyn Bay to start to come together
- I will get to know the students better at Aberconwy Christian Union
- Blessed family holiday in October
- Blessed week of outreach in local H.S. this October
- Brother, Kyler, to have safe journey on his visit
Thank you for your prayers and support!
We enjoyed having a video chat with Calvary Church in Weatherford, TX this month. We’d love to chat with you too! Let me know if this interests you.
