Heartfelt thanks go out from the Birmingham church, and the churches in Scotland, to the churches in the Northwest Family, for sending the Historymakers to us! Our activities so far: on Tuesday, (the day we arrived!) after our orientation and prayer time up in Lickey Hills overlooking Birmingham, we helped in a follow-up Bible study with Jasmin, a young Christian; went out sharing our faith around the University of Birmingham and met Kate, a second-year Physiotherapy student who came that night to Bible discussion, loved it, and is eager to continue to meet up; enjoyed the student Bible discussion which had 8 visitors, two of whom were there for the first time that night. On Wednesday, studied the Bible with Dan, a first-year University of Birmingham student, majoring in War Studies; and with Mori, 22-year-old graduate who works for Cadbury. We visited an invalid brother, Paul, in his care home. Thursday (fighting jet lag!) we met for a devotional at the train station and set off together for Edinburgh, Scotland, where we’ll spend the weekend with 60 staff & lay leaders from the churches in the UK/Ireland/ Nordic Countries.
Who saw “The Lord of the Rings” films? Remember the bonfire beacons, lit on the mountaintops to call the kingdoms of men to battle? We’re standing on a real one that was surely Tolkein’s reference point, as he spent much of his childhood here in Birmingham.
