July 21st July 2017 – A very special welcome

July 21st July 2017 – A very special welcome
July 21, 2017 Sandra Goodwin

When we realised that the cottage we had booked for our holiday had no WiFi and then discovered that there would probably be no mobile signal either, my first reaction was ‘Hooray, no sitting in front of a computer for two whole weeks’. Then of course I quickly realised that that just wouldn’t be practical, there were things that I needed to do, I needed to be in contact for at least a short time each day.

So my wonderful PA, alias husband David, contacted the local Methodist minister to ask for information about any public WiFi in the vicinity. We received an immediate response and our time here has been wonderfully blessed as a result.

Rev David and Liz Jones are volunteers in a community café, a place which happens to have good WiFi but also has a very special ethos – more about this in another blog. Not only were we welcomed into the café (from which I have been sending these blogs), but we received a warm invitation to join Liz and David at their home for an evening meal.

Along with adopted daughter Priscilla, and Ruby their chocolate labradoodle, we enjoyed a very relaxing evening sharing some of our life experiences.

For much of their married life, alongside conventional ministry, this very special couple have opened their hearts and homes through fostering and adoption to many children, some with special needs and life-limiting conditions.
