LMI Staff Retreat 2023

Yesterday was LMI's annual Staff Retreat. The retreat is a great time for our staff and volunteers to spend time together, be taught and challenged from the Word, pray over the ministry and each other, worship God, eat and have fun!
Special thanks to Pastor Pip Kerr for taking the time to encourage us, your teachings struck an ideal balance between motivation and challenge! And thanks also to the T3 Conference Centre in Lisburn for having us, it was the perfect venue.

Danny Roberts Speaks at QUB CU

Last night, Danny Roberts had the joy of speaking to hundreds of students at @qubcu, when he was Guest Speaker at their monthly event, ‘The Gathering’ .
After a time of worship, Danny shared his testimony, a gritty, wonderful account of God’s grace to a young man who was investing his time and talent in things that wouldn’t last. His text was Luke 12:13-21, The Parable of the Rich Fool.
After the meeting, Danny and Alan Dourish spent time chatting with the students, including CU committee members, several of whom are entering their final year and have big decisions to make about their futures in the days ahead.

From Fear to Freedom

Reformation Day, the 31st October, is when we celebrate the revelation of God to Martin Luther over five hundred years ago.

Luther was a devout, religious and well educated man, and he held an important role in the church and at the University in Wittenberg, Germany. However, he had struggled to find God for himself. He longed to be free from his sin and to be right with God.

His search for peace with God culminated in the realisation of the amazing truth of God’s word in Romans 1:17, ‘the just shall live by faith’ (see also Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:38 and Habakkuk 2:4).

SHINE Prayer Day

Yesterday members of LMI, Scripture Union, and Crown Jesus Ministries met together for the annual SHINE Prayer Day. 
The three organisations spent time learning about this years' theme and teaching, and then took time to pray over all the schools and churches taking part, christians in schools (teachers and pupils), and all aspects of SHINE.
We'd appreciate it if you, too, could pray for SHINE. A lot of hard work and love goes into the project, and the potential for impact is huge!

Maud Kelly passes into Glory

Everyone at LMI was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Maud Kells OBE, a dedicated servant of Jesus whose perseverance, love and missionary zeal inspired people far and wide.
It was a deep respect for Maud and her incredible efforts that motivated Declan Small, our Digital Developer, to write a blog piece about her life for his ‘God’s Emeralds’ series, as he sought to inspire others as he himself had been inspired by her. You can read his blog entry here: https://lmi-org.net/latest/blog/422-gods-emeralds-maud-kells
We give thanks to God for Maud and trust that her family and friends will know the Lord’s comfort, peace and keeping in the days ahead.
