Bon Voyage to Paul & Claire

World Mission Sunday today, and not only are we remembering our existing mission partners but also saying a fond farewell to Paul Furbey & Claire Bowen Furbey who are about to go to India for two years, where they will be working with InterServe in a refuge for children affected by HIV+.

They are an amazing young couple full of enthusiasm for their new challenge. They’ve already led a dedicated life, working with housing associations, refugee charities and Christian youth groups. But this is something new and different. I admire their faith and courage and pray for their safe journey and positive time in India.

I will really miss Paul & Claire, they’ve been good friends and members of our home group (a small group of church friends which meets fortnightly for bible study, prayer and mutual support). We enjoyed lunch with the Furbey & Bowen families after church, and took a final group photo to remind us of each other when they’ve gone.
