Well, it’s that time of the year again, where I take that 17 (or more) hours journey to Utah. This time thankfully I am not travelling alone. UPFC volunteer and ex-Jehovah’s Witness Tony Brown, and also Lee Burrows a local friend from Middlesbrough are coming along. We have quite a bit planned.
While we are here we are going to be doing outreach at Temple Square.
Also we will be at the Manti Miracle Pageant, doing outreach with a hundred or so Christians there.
We hope to have a great time, have some great loving relationships with LDS people, and further strengthen our links and relationships with Christians over in Utah. We will be spending time in various locations, such as Salt Lake City, Ogden, Ephraim, Manti and Provo.
Provo was found in a study by J.D Payne to be the least evangelised city in the entire USA. It is home to Brigham Young University, and has a massive need for Christian outreach. The reality is on a 12 day trip we likely won’t see that change, but its a great opportunity to be challenged and motivated for what this ministry is doing in the UK, as well as hopefully seeing God work in peoples lives in Utah.
We are mega excited about this, and I hope you will pray for us, keep an eye on this site for updates, and offer some comments of support (or by all means challenge if you disagree with us doing this) here and there.
Here is a conversation I had on the streets of Manti a couple of years ago, to give you an idea of what we will be doing.
