Hello Friends

 

How are you?

 

We are so excited welcoming new guests into our house from different countries. There is such a diversity of different cultures.

 

As we are moving to the month of April, we feel you need to look at the doors set before you. You have heard right, doors. So often we think we do not deserve to ask something from God, but He does tell you to come boldly to the throne of grace that you may obtain mercy and find grace you urgently need, that He might strengthen you in time of need, and in time of weakness. (Hebrews 4:16). He is for you and His desire is to help you. Do not think, you do not deserve it. Do not think, this is for someone else. This day God has made for you. That’s right. It is for you. That’s why the Father sent His Son to this earth to show you that He is a God of mercy and grace, endlessly patient, loyal in love for a thousand generations, forgiving iniquity, rebellion, and sin.

 

So, go forth and knock upon the door, and as you knock, you will find Jesus there to open. When the first door is opened, continue walking, continue seeking, continue asking, continue knocking until the 2nd Door is opened. This year is not moving backwards but moving forward! Do not allow time, thoughts, mind, emotions, people, circumstances to move you to the old. Stay focused, stay positive, stay close to Jesus and He will give you a victory. There will be victories. You have not experienced them yet, but they are on their way. Now is the time to look up, rise up, and let your voice be heard! Arise and let your light shine to all the nations! (Isaiah 60:1)

 

So, do not fear, do not panic, for God is with you. There is no need to fear, for He is your God. May you experience victories and the desires of your heart be fulfilled this year!

The Highbury Centre News

Our Team is doing well. No changes of staff so far.

 

In spite of having snow this year, guests arrived safely without too much disruption. We are all looking forward to a warm weather, especially our Spanish Team. :) We are staying positive that soon the weather in London will be more welcoming. At the moment it's quite grey outside and cold. 

 

We have changed the carpet at the rear end of the house. Red carpet has gone. Our kitchen looks great after being refurbished.

 

Hope one day you will be able to attend a Movie Evening which we organise once a month. Popcorn is provided.
