So after literally weeks of planning, packing and getting things in order, today’s the day that the Hankey clan head off on a 2 week adventure that comes in 2 parts.
Part 1 – Souled Out Cymru
I am privileged to be one of the speakers at Souled Out again this Summer. Souled Out is a youth camp for young people that takes place in Bala, North Wales. Bala is my spiritual homeland (I was saved there 20 years ago this summer!) And Souled Out is a cracking youth event. I really enjoyed my time there last summer, as did my family who will once again be coming with me.
My involvement at Souled Out includes preaching a 3 part series and taking several seminars for the boys on sexual purity and godly living. Who knows I might even bust a rap or two as well!! Michelle is also going to be taking a seminar for the girls which I’m buzzin’ about cos she’s got a great heart and gift for communicating gospel truth to young women. We’ll also hopefully get out and about in the beautiful North Wales countryside at various points, which is always good for the soul. One of the things I’m most looking forward to is meeting old friends and church leaders from around Wales. I’m especially looking forward to hanging out with my old friend Jonathan Thomas from Ammanford and sitting under his preaching for a bit.
Please do pray for us a family this week – that we will be well used and well rested and refreshed. Pray for the kids especially that they remain free of sickness and tantrums! And please also pray for our travelling – the weather is mingin’ today!
The Souled Out phase will take us through to Friday, after which we’ll be jumping on a ferry and heading across to the emerald isle and heading off to the coast of Northern Ireland. More about that next week.
