Paul and Jean were heading up an amazing team of Festival Angel volunteers running safe hubs and detached teams at Kendal Calling music festival. The volunteers went above and beyond to offer support and care to some of the 35,000 festival goers and staff. The weekend turned wet on the Saturday with mud galore but brightened again for Sunday in time for the 'Jesus Calls Will U Follow' banner plane flypast. It is hoped to build on the work at Kendal Calling in future years.
Paul met with Lisa, Ian and Charlie from Spring Harvest looking at how we can help them promote the Harrogate event, 14-18 April 2020 - website for more details. It really is a great event so plan to get along for the day or the week! Here we are in Halifax's Piece Hall..
Something that we don't talk about much is that Jean has had recurrent miscarriages throughout our marriage. She recently wrote an article for Liberti Christian ladies magazine (see below) which is below and manages a Facebook Group. Jean has also spoken in church gatherings and prayed for ladies who have also had recurrent miscarriages. Do get in touch with Jean via the Facebook Group if you want to chat or know more.
Our friend Sarah Leonard is an international speaker and, with her mum Mary, hosted us so well in America. Here is the audio of Sarah speaking on Sunday...
