1/5 in the UK, 4/5 in Oz... all working to get back together

Well Mick is now in the UK about to start his Workshop Skills course at South Tyneside College. He is a bit nervous about the level of the course and whether he will be well prepared or not so would ask that you pray for him.
We did receive a small windfall from Suncorp who waived an administration fee when we altered our mortgage – so thank you to Suncorp.
The family is almost fully vaccinated now having had Typhoid, Hep A, Meningitis ACWY, Yellow Fever and three Rabies shots in the last two months. Just the second Hep A and two four year boosters for Harry to go. The boys have all been fantastic with these, especially Jack and Mark who have provided encouragement to Harry who really doesn’t like “jekshuns”.
Mick has finished his ebay crusade for the time being completing 80 sales in 6 weeks. Our house is substantially less cluttered and we are not missing any of it. It has been very liberating to reduce our material possessions so much. He also completed many of the maintenance tasks required to prepare the house and our flat for renting for the next few years.
We also spoke at our church – Bayside Community Church – and shared our plans for the next few years service with Mercy Ships with them. We have received great encouragement from many of our church family and we have already seen the evidence of prayer power as we prepare to serve – witness the red car selling three days after Mick listed it!!
