News From the Frontline – September 2021

At the end of June, the Inspire International Steering Group recognised 44 Missioners from 5 countries to serve the Inspire Movement in 2021-22. We are still collecting some pictures for our Missioner collage above. Inspire Missioners work out their role in different contexts, developing Inspire practices and cultivating the core values of the Way of Life. Here are some highlights from a few of our Missioners about what is happening across the Movement at the moment: 

  • The Wright Family in Chesterfield UK, “August was full on with celebrations and sadness mixed together. We had a good week of holiday rolling into September away with family. Please pray God continues to refresh us as we establish the rhythms and routines for the coming season. We are particularly excited about in person retreats starting and seeing peoples passion for God and love of others fanned into flame. Thankyou for all your prayers…every single one is heard by God.”
  • Tabitha in Helsby, UK, “Ezra Ezekiel John arrived at 11:29 p.m. on 1 August weighing in at 7lb 8oz. We were home by noon the next day! Malachi is loving his little brother. We are thankful that Michael was at home because of the school holidays. Please pray for us all in the coming months as we adjust to new routines. The Inspire Advent resource for families is still progressing and we hope to have a first edition ready for you to try in Advent this year. Thank you for all your prayers. They are working!”
