The London church supports Haiti and Africa – people move to London and grow the church
London Ambassadors earned over $1,000 tagging
for MERCY’s Haiti Water Filtration Program,
which will supply over 20 water filters
to families in need!
The impact on the lives of so many around the world during the International Day of MERCY 2015 can be summed up by the three words in a card written by one of our youngsters to encourage the homeless in London: “You are special!”
We also profited greatly from our brother Jacques Groenwald’s visit to the African Missions Conference! Upon his return, he gave a very stirring and sobering account of his experiences in Abidjan, opening our eyes to how privileged we are in the UK!
On the streets of Abidjan, Anthony (second from

of Kinshasa and Jacques of London!
Amidst historic warm weather here in the UK, it’s been a joy watching the Holy Spirit move through the London International Christian Church! God has blessed the church with eight additions and a new dating couple in the past five weeks! It was awesome to see two siblings come to the Lord; Jeanette Yeboha’s brother Ridge was the first to be baptized; then Kenny Giwa’s brother and semi-pro footballer (soccer player) Sadique was baptized a week later! The Kingdom unifying families is what it’s all about!
Sadique is so fired-up to have
a purpose beyond “football!”
The following week Sadique was determined to convert his best friend Michael who is actually just as talented on the football pitch! God blessed his prayers as Michael was added just a week later!
We then baptized an incredible young Hungarian woman named Eni (Annie) who’s gentle and quiet spirit refreshed the saints! Eni’s story is amazing as she was baptized into the Golders Green Bible Talk after her cousin, who stopped studying the Bible, gave her a share card and said that Eni would find the studies helpful!

The following week, we hosted the Singles Retreat where an incredible zealous brother Sean, asked our dear sister MJ to be his girlfriend!!!!
Jenn Watkins not enjoying the Singles
Retreat as much as Eni!
We also restored our sister Stephanie at Campus Devo, and baptized an incredible Lithuanian single professional man named Arunis!
Arunis (pictured with his daughter Saula) was
baptized thanks to the prayers of our
Lithuanian brother Martynas
in the Stockholm Church!
The following weekend, we had an incredible Marrieds Encouragement Weekend, where we were able to have a lovely boat cruise, dinner and for “dessert” all the men recited poems to their wives (flowers in hand) in front of huge crowds in South London’s beautiful historic Richmond Area!
Lastly, Anthony & Cassidy arrived from LA on Monday and the church is so fired up! Anthony has already been dubbed “Instant Impact Anthony,” accompanied with his amazing wife “Kind Cassidy!” We are so honored to work side-by-side with this amazing couple building Europe for God’s glory! Thank you LA, and all who have poured their hearts into this amazing young couple!
Cassidy wilted hearts with her communion, and Anthony flat preached the Word at Bible Talk Leaders Meeting!
