New horizons. New challenges.

I start a new job in two weeks.

I’ve had the most wonderful time at my current workplace. I’ve really enjoyed working to tell their stories of hope and transformation.

It’s been a privilege to wake up each morning, open my laptop, and write about faithful staff, caring pastors, and generous supporters from across the world making a difference in the lives of children and their families.

For the last two and a half years I worked with a team of talented people who had the same heart for the mission — to partner with churches to help children reach their brighter futures.

It was very cool. Joyful. Optimistic.

Now it’s time for a new challenge.

I’ve been offered and have accepted a role with another Christian organisation that has been doing great work in London since the 1800s.

They care for the homeless, send missionaries to work in prisons, provide early intervention to lower instances of knife crime, work with trafficked women, and much more.

They deliberately go in to difficult mission fields, where the need is great and life can be bleak. Not only do they work with churches to provide practical support to the communities around them, they share the immense grace, love, and hope that can be found in Jesus.

And slowly, through consistent, steady, and faithful care, lives are changed.

I went to one of their prayer meetings tonight.

I was greatly encouraged to see many people there. People who love God and want to love their neighbours in this way. They seemed like beacons in the storm. A light in the darkness.

I almost cried.

I can’t wait to work for them. For even in the darkest hour, when life is cruel and all hope seems lost, God is at work.

And that’s the story I get to tell the world in a couple of weeks.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 (NIV)
