13th February 2013 sees Pastor Gordon and seven others take a trip to visit several of the Countess of Huntingdon’s churches and schools on the Freetown peninsula. Six of those going with Gordon are teenagers and one a retired primary school teacher from St Ives, Cornwall, Janet O’Shea.
The plan is to teach in some of the schools and to do some maintenance painting in some of the churches. Gordon is the only one of the eight who has been to Africa before, this will be his fifth visit to Sierra Leone, his third as president of the connexion, and his third as chairman of the mission, although they are not connected.
The visit has been blessed so far by many donations from different people, in and out of the connexion. Thank you to all who have made this trip possible. We would appreciate your prayers for travelling mercies and that we would be kept fit and well throughout our visit and on the way home.
