Please continue to pray for Pastor Roy and his wife Joy especially now as they enter the last period of their sabbatical and prepare to return to ministry within the church tomorrow. The sabbatical is a time for rest, refreshing, renewal and re-envisioning. For those who don't know what the word means, a sabbatical (from the same word as we get 'Sabbath day') is meant to be a stimulating and refreshing break from ministry (but not a holiday) leading to a pastor returning better equipped to serve, through deeper understanding and new insights. Please pray that it will be so for them.
