IFES, Athens

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8)

Greetings from my new flat! The Lord has provided an affordable flat in the city centre, (within walking distance of five universities!) I have a spacious lounge which is perfect for hosting student gatherings, and a comfy sofa bed for guests - your bed in Athens awaits you!! It’s a delight to know there are so many of you praying for me. God certainly loves to respond to our prayers. One answer to prayer has been at Greek dancing lessons. I now have about 10 acquaintances, one of whom is a student called Rebecca who seems up for chatting about spiritual stuff!

On a more personal note, I sometimes feel a little alone, and I miss those precious friends I’ve left behind who know me inside out! Please pray for a couple of close girl friends here who will be good at pointing me to the Lord Jesus.
