2. Finland and Singapore

Best ever ministry trip in so many ways

Finland – did a big road trip on the first weekend

Seinajoki -2 Jarmo’s and Jemina played so well with us

Free flowing worship time and super version of Finlandia

Jarmo’s parents and sister’s family came

Joensuu -2 gigs at Gospel festival -African guys helped to break out the dancing in both meetings!

A number of key town and business leaders were touched

Helsinki – Host family the Pouttu’s were so kind to me again

Played with some of the band from last 2 years – cello, percussion and vocals

Beautiful and powerful worship time

Titta and friend danced so beautifully.

Hameenlinna – My great friend Max M and family hosted me, and publisher Paiva (Merja
kiitti!) were very kind as always

Max played perc and sang with me – always great to be together

Dancing broke out again and we had some amazing times around ‘Amazing grace’
and a U2 song Psalm 40

Radio Dei – national Christian radio – good friend Kirsi really open doors for our ministry

Really productive interview, and they played 4 songs Devotion incl ‘Your kindness calls to repentance’

Recording

Started an exciting new project with Anders and Manku – more a singer/songwriter/band album

Incl Caledonia Girl (written for Liz for our 20th), Tapestry now called ‘Something beautiful’, ‘Desired haven’, ‘Well of life’, ‘When love lies broken’ – will get some lyrics to you soon

Other songs like ‘Love and let go’ are also needing to be recorded – God is really pulling a lot out of us, as ever when things seem the most challenging!!

Singapore – fantastic worship weekend with a new bunch of friends

Band – massive group of great young people who were a delight to work with

Dancers – a group of 4 women were such a blessing

A professional dancer in training, stunningly interpreted ‘Stolen Years’
Joel 2 – wow!!

Response times were powerful, and even senior pastor responded at the end of meetings.

Delight to walk and play over people through out the weekend

Sold a good number of the Cds, which were all signed – love the Singaporeans enthusiasm!

Integrity Asia have been so helpful and insightful in opening doors for our ministry – thanks guys!
