Update October to December 2014
We should have moved by now but still find ourselves in our old home. Frances returned back from Australia on the 30th September having been away for 4 weeks after looking after Kezia and the family in Perth while Michelle was in the UK to celebrate her Mum & Dad’s golden wedding anniversary and Jim’s 70th birthday.
Kezia continues to improve and still has some healing to do after the serious car accident that nearly took her life. We continue to be blessed by the Lord’s care for her over these three months since the accident. Some bruising and pain remains following the fractures of her spine and pelvis and her memory still needs to recover following her head injuries but she is getting back to some kind of normality although she is not fit for work yet.
Our first moving date was planned for the end of August but now we are hoping to exchange on the 6th October and complete on the 24th so another 3 weeks remains living with all our goods packed away in boxes. It was a good thing that we labelled them carefully as it means if we do need something at least it does not take too long to find it.
While Frances was away Terry was busy most weekends visiting various churches in the South East of England and has enjoyed the opportunity to preach away. We have only one booked engagement for October which is on the 12th when we travel to Gravesend to dedicate Louisa Evans, Dave & Debbie Evans new baby. Over the past couple of months we have enjoyed a variety of ministry as well as met with some challenges but we are confident that the Lord is in overall care of our lives.
We are looking forward to Andrew joining with us next Sunday 5th originally with plans to help us move but we will be able to take him to the new house when we next visit my mother on Wednesday.
This update will now run to December as we will be busy converting our new house to make a self-contained flat for Doreen as well as build a bedroom out of a garage for ourselves. When this is completed we shall investigate the practicalities of making one downstairs room available for my mother. We have at the moment a visit booked for Sunningdale and Crowthorne the last weekend in November and are thinking of a long weekend in Helsinki nearer Christmas but apart from that we shall be settling into our new home in St Leonards – on – Sea.
Thanks you for all your support while we have been in Eltham. Much love Terry & Frances
