I've finally been able to access the blog! Sorry to those of you who have been waiting with bated breath for the first entry from the new President and Vice-President....we can only get better.
These past two weeks have gone very quickly since the beginning of Conference on the 5th July. It was a very special moment being inducted as President and to hold in my hand, for a short while, John Wesley's field bible. To think back on those who have held this office over the years is a very humbling experience.
We had a good Conference by all accounts....and there are details of this on the web and in other places......it was really enjoyable sharing the leading of the sessions with David Walton..even if I did keep forgetting to adjourn Conference at the end of the day!
It was very special having so many friends and family with us for the opening weekend. I would like to thank all those who have been supporting me through prayer, sending cards and greetings. All of these have been a real source of encouragement and strength. Thank you.
I've some photos that have been sent me and I'll try to work out how to get them on to this ....but will post this now and see if it works!!
