newsletter July and August 2018

Thank you for your prayers in June for the visits to Pinchbeck and Gosberton. Lots of new contacts were made and it attracted much interest, including new prayer supporters.


Update from Tony Coe:

It has been a productive last three months. I have led 12 lessons during these months. I have made good contact with Park Academy and the Haven High Academy. My biggest encouragement over these months was seeing Haven High School really keen for us to visit.


I am pleased that we have made contact and demonstrated our capability to 5 primary schools, allowing contact with some 250 children… am also pleased that we have doors open at William Lovell C of E Academy, Haven High Academy and Boston High School. Please pray for wisdom as to the possible ways we might move forward, particularly with a limited part-time role.


Please pray:

  That the bus will pass its MOT

  For all those cleaning, maintaining and improving the bus over the summer break

  For Tony, for wisdom concerning the development of the work with schools

  Give thanks for the way that God has provided financially and pray this might continue

  Give thanks for good conversations on the bus

  Pray for all the young people who have visited the bus this year, that what they have seen and heard on the bus would have a lasting impact



Lincolnshire Youth Mission Open Day and AGM

LYM is the “parent group” of RoadHoG so please do go along if you can. RoadHoG may be able to offer transport from the Boston area if sufficient people are interested.

Please let Kev know if you’d like transport by calling him on 0790 9094038. Visit the RoadHoG and Godpod buses, hear teams from all 3 projects talk about their work.

Refreshments provided.



Holiday @ Home

4-6 September

Come and enjoy a time of fun at Zion for your Italian Holiday at home. Starting at 10am and finishing approx. 3pm each day. For further details contact Lesley and pick up a programme.


One of our aims for the venture is to create something for the community, allowing people living on their own and those that are unable to have a holiday to be able to come along, join in with activities and feel they have had a break from their normal routine. To help this happen we are asking if anyone is coming on their own in a car, to bring at least one more person with them that will benefit from the venture. 


Highlights include:

  A morning at the museum – Italian glassware, maps, pictures, holiday memories

  Cacio al Fuso – a game similar to lawn bowls

  DVD about Italy

  Film time with the ice cream van in the interval!

  Italian food demo

  Italian theme Crazy Golf

  Italian themed jigsaws

  Mosaic crafts – make a souvenir to keep, or give away as a holiday present

  Tower of Pisa game

  Visit the Italian Scooter outside in the car park

If you know anyone that has an Italian car (Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat, Lamborghini, Lancia,  Maserati, Pagani) that would be willing to come along on the Wednesday at some point for us to have a look at and have a chat would be fantastic.
