One of the privileges of having our Crosslinks prayer letter due in December means that we are amongst the first to say: Happy Christmas!
We are looking forward very much to celebrating the birth of the Lord Jesus, made more vivid after our visit to the shepherds’ fields in Bethlehem earlier this year.
In late September Rachel and I spent two weeks in southern and eastern Africa visiting CMS mission partners. It was a huge encouragement to spend time with our mission partners, all of whom had trained during our time at St Andrew’s Hall. The context of mission in southern Africa is especially challenging, with continued tensions around land ownership. Mission in post-colonial contexts is not easy. We were encouraged to see how wisely and vulnerably our colleagues were engaging in mission in the face of these issues.
