World Horizons

We had a very special service last Sunday morning as we shared with David and Corne Storm, their family and friends, in the dedication of baby Annelie. There was even a Skype link with South Africa, where Corne is originally from, during the dedication!

David and Corne work with World Horizons on a full time voluntary basis. This welsh based organisation seeks to work in partnership with the UK church to see indigenous church planted in areas of the world where it has never before existed - places for example like Tibet, Turkey, Morocco, Sudan, Iraq and north-west India. For more information on World Horizons, check out their website at www.worldhorizons.co.uk

Corne  is currently on maternity leave & loving being a full time mum, making lots of friends with other mums and babies. David is part of a small team running an adventurous short term missions program. This mainly involves prayer focused trips to the Middle East & North Africa that are usually aimed at the 18-30 year old age group. The overland trips, where they drive from Wales to North Africa, often have a strong emphasis on discipleship, envisioning people for the nations, nurturing faith and first time evangelism to unreached people groups. The fly-out trips often meet with local believers before heading into unreached areas of the country to pray, worship, and to ask God to build His Kingdom and send long term mission workers.

David has just returned from an overland trip in France with a group of English students in early April. They connected with French churches and missionaries in Strasbourg,Bourg and Marseille to learn from them, pray with them and work alongside them for a short time.

David, Corne and Annelie are currently enjoying a two week break in Scotland. Please pray that this will be a good family time of rest and refreshing for them, and that God will continue to bless and direct their work with World Horizons on their return.
