Latterly, since retirement, I’ve had far more time for prayer and use the SGA prayer diaries as a basis for this each day.
I am now just seventy. I wanted no celebration, even within my lovely family, but SGA’s Project 70 seemed to be God’s way of drawing me into further involvement in His work beyond my landmark birthday. Hitherto I had always donated to SGA’s ‘general fund’, trusting its staff to allocate the money as they saw best.
However, it has been a great blessing to me to be linked to Tomas and Silvia Henzel in Slovakia under Project 70.
Initially I was sent an A4 letter from Tomas describing most helpfully his training, his dual role as an emergency medic and leader of a growing church, heading up Gospel work among students, teaching and, with Sylvia, counselling troubled couples.
It included a lovely photo of them with their three small children. More recently SGA has forwarded to me a video from the family, with updates about their lives and ministry. How it brought them to life vividly for me! I feel very humble to be materially blessed, and it is a joy and an honour to be able to share with, and support, men like Tomas.
