My dear Friends,

Last autumn, the PCC agreed to sponsor a mission project of the Church Mission Society. The Society sent us details of several, and at our September meeting we agreed to support the educational work of Festo and Grace Kanungha in Tanzania. They and their two young sons, William and Zephaniah, are based at Kilimatinde, Tanzania, where they provide primary and secondary education in their rural community.

We are very fortunate that our new mission partners are to be in England for three months during this coming early summer. This will be spent either on holiday in Cornwall with Grace’s family, but mainly at the CMS Training College and in visiting the parishes that support their endeavours in Tanzania. It’s now planned that they will be with us in Barthomley in June, arriving in the evening of Friday 22nd June and to be on their way in the afternoon of Sunday 24th. Plans are now being made so that they may enjoy their visit and have opportunity to meet as many of us as possible and with opportunity to tell us about their work among the people of Kilimatinde. Look out for more details of their weekend among us.

Meanwhile, we have the whole of joyful Eastertide ahead of us. That is six weeks of celebrating the victory of Jesus Christ over the power of sin and death. It’s not just his victory, for that is his gift to us – the free gift of himself, that we may share with him in his inheritance as the Son of God. So,

Come, let us join our cheerful songs

With angels round the throne;

Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,

But all their joys are one.

‘Worthy the Lamb that died,’ they cry,

‘To be exalted thus,’

‘Worthy the Lamb’, our lips reply,

‘For he was slain for us.’

Happy Easter to you all,

Darrel and Angela Spee
