Uzhgorod, Ukraine Aug/Sept 2018

Travelling via Netherlands & Hungary, we arrived in Uzhgorod fairly late in the evening to a lovely welcome by many of our long standing friends. The church we visited has been on a journey from believing all the right things to actually encountering the big Dad. It was refreshing to be there and to see all the people who had experienced real changes previously plus a whole new group of recent converts who were learning to drink His love in a new way. Delightful, too, to celebrate with Lena her engagement to Clinton even though we can’t make the wedding on the 29th Sept. Lena came to our 4 week Eagles Wings School some years ago and she has gathered some friends who together are pursuing more inner healing and more encounter with Him. Such a blessing to be with !! Our friends from Amsterdam, Helen & Jeroen accompanied us and many of the men particularly were impacted by Jeroen’s testimony of his journey from being quite locked up in his heart to a new place of growing freedom to be who he is in Christ.

Encountering the Father's Love in Bath July 2018

We continue to organise 3 Schools in our City each year. People from Bath come but so do many others from other parts of the UK and also from Israel, Switzerland, Netherlands and other European countries. The team who help us are amazing. They are friends from different churches who have a passion to see the revelation of God’s love invade every person who comes. We can’t make it happen but we always welcome the Holy Spirit who not only will come but who is eager to impart that encounter in a way that is designer made for us. Our next School is the week of November 19th to the 23rd, 2018 at Holy Trinity Church, Combe Down, Bath. If you are interested in coming then find out more by going to this website: www.encounteringthefatherslove.org

Toronto, Canada June/July 2018

Faith spent a month there, visiting our daughter and son-in-law and their 3 girls, the latest arriving during her visit. After I arrived there was connecting time where I was more or less dragged immediately to the new trampoline where after getting up very early and a flight of 8 hrs did not satisfy the granddaughter as an excuse for not jumping high and lifting my legs !!

We also had the joy of contributing to the CTF Leaders School. It was amazing to see the responses of so many who had been serving God for many years actually have encounters with Him for the first time. The main problem with our culture of Western Intellectualism is that it devalues encounter and substitutes study, thinking & head knowledge as the way to know God. When, in fact, the true knowledge of God is heart encounter that goes way beyond what our minds can imagine. Ephesians 3 v 17-19 is emphatic in declaring that we need power from heaven to even grasp the bigness of God’s love, and finishes with “and to know this love which is beyond knowledge”. In other words God wants to take us to a place beyond anything our minds can conceive so that we can be filled with all the fulness of God. Yeah !!!

 Lift your legs, Pop Pop !! Jump !!

CTF Lyon, France

What a delight to be in France again, and especially to visit Lyon, such a great city with a history of God interventions. The School was powerful in bringing healing and heart changing encounters with the Father. We also had the joy of praying for this great nation, which included the Brits present repenting of all the bad stuff our nation had done to France over the centuries. In turn this triggered the local people to repent of their stuff done against the British nation. Forgiveness was offered and received by both groups bringing a sense of unity together to see the Kingdom of God come. We interceded for the nation and began to see the prophetic expressing the destiny that God has for France. Such a good time full of fun and friendship. It was delightful to have Tim & Judith Clarke with us, who led worship in French, and Helen Voorn from Amsterdam.

Dominican Republic Feb '18

What a joy to meet our friends Randy & Ydelka in Santo Domingo again. They lead such an amazing church in which there is such a sense of corporate responsibility and team that has been invaded by love. We honour them as those with a passion to see true Godly leadership that is soaked in His Love in every area of church life. They are such a delight to be with !!

 The auditorium they have designed. Amazing !!

Speedy 2018 !!!!

How is it that 2018 is speeding by so fast. We’ve been in Toronto, Canada twice, in Dominican Republic again, done 2 one week schools in our city of Bath with a third planned for November. In addition we have visited CTF Lyon, France, Bern, Switzerland, and just returned from Uzhgorod, Ukraine.

We are convinced that the whole Body of Christ around the world has to hear and encounter the incredible love of the Father at a heart level before we see the the true revealing of the glorious Son’s of God for which the whole creation is groaning.

Here are a few brief reports:

January 2017

Towards the end of January, along with Tim & Judith Clarke plus Helen Voorn from Amsterdam, we flew from Bristol to Basel, Switzerland, where we had the joy of meeting again with Roland who had organised with his team for us to have a one week School in a local hotel.   Although relatively small numerically, it soon became obvious that the Holy Spirit was in it, and some amazing things happened during the week.   Bernard who leads the House of Prayer in the city invited us to visit and we spent just a couple of hours in the Presence of God which was really strong.   We plan to revisit Basel later in the year, as it seems to be a gateway city for Switzerland and Northern Europe.

Autumn School 2 of Eagles Wings School of the Heart

 week ago on the 3rd of October, we finished the second half of two 8 day Eagles Wings Schools of the Heart at Lox Lane, Shaftesbury. This was the 13th Eagles Wings School since we started in September 2010, and brought the total of graduates to 161 from 25 different nations. On this occasion it was a great joy to graduate 18 students who had all encountered some healing and new connection with the Father. They are an amazing bunch of people. This was an experiment to help those who did not have 3 weeks of their annual leave to attend in June/July. Actually we were amazed how many just picked up from where we left off in the Spring, having had the time to process the issues the Holy Spirit had raised. We are full of gratitude to the Father for all He has done to restore people's lives. We propose to continue next year with 2 x 8 day schools in Spring & Autumn plus the normal 3 week School in June/July.


Heiligenschwendi, Switzerland

This time , we decided to drive there.   Such a great journey through France.  Once there, we were joined by Helen from Amsterdam, and met up with our friends Joachim & Erika.   One lady who was on her 3rd School gave testimony that the 1st school hit her mind, the 2nd School touched her heart and caused change that has lasted.  Her testimony was gripping in that it was so obvious that her heart had been changed for ever.  We love seeing this kind of radical change which happens on every school.. So thankful to the Father for giving us the best job ever.

 The most distracting thing was the presence of these incredible mountain views including the Big Three, The Eiger, The Monk and the Jungfrau.
