One of our elders, Ali Scott, flies out to the Philippines today (Friday 26th October) to connect with four Regions Beyond churches there, with the aim of developing an ongoing relationship with Emmanuel.
In addition to spending informal time getting to know the churches and their leaders, Ali will be preaching on the two Sundays in three of the churches, speaking at midweek life groups, teaching four sessions to a group of leaders on the Holy Spirit, and doing some sight-seeing/relationship building with some of the ministry trainees.
On the way back, Ali will be attending a gathering in Dubai called 'Gospel Advance' with Fusi Mokoena and City Hill Church. There will be around 60 people from across the nations in attendance, all of whom are connected relationally with Fusi and City Hill.
The goal is to grow relationships, and learn from one another in different cultures. As part of this, papers will be presented and discussed on different topics. Ali will be speaking on church planting. Ali will then be preaching at City Hill's Friday service before flying back to the UK on Saturday 10th November.
Ali would appreciate your prayer as he steps out into the unknown and trusts God to do all that he wants to do through this trip.
