Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life’. John 8:12 (NIV)
Thank you to all of those who attended our Official Opening at the end of November. Praise the Lord that the shop was full to overflowing most of the morning and had a real buzz. Even the mayor popped in for a few moments to see what all the fuss was about, and was very impressed with the shop. And not forgetting Pam for cutting the ribbon for us. Thank you also for all the kind comments you have made about the new shop.
When we think back to only a few months ago as we started to set up the shop we can see the Lord’s hand in all we did. Every time we encountered what appeared to be an insuperable problem, the Lord opened unexpected doors for us. And so we give Him the glory for today’s Lighthouse.
At last we are beginning to settle in and get everything sorted out. That is, except for behind the “Black Door” downstairs where we still have a little work sorting out the office, stock room and store. But we hope to have all of that done in the next month or so.
Christmas being over, Penny and Kim, along with their team of faithful volunteers, will have put away the Christmas stock and are now able to put out some other items in its place. Do come in and browse to see what is available. And if it isn’t, then ask. This shop is here to supply your needs so please do mention if there is something you think we should stock that we don’t at the moment.
Penny has recently increased the range of Ben and Hannah Dunnett items which includes cards, mugs, coasters and journals amongst other things. These are proving very popular and are selling well. There is also a range of posters which Penny hopes to stock soon. In the meanwhile she can show you the range on the laptop and order them in for you.
Please note that we now have new email and internet addresses, although the old “New Creation” ones will still work for a little longer. Can you please update your address book, if you haven’t already done so.
The staff, volunteers and trustees of Lighthouse are very appreciative of your prayers and support over the past years and how the Lord has been with us every step of the way. We would like to wish you all, our supporters, customers and prayer partners, a truly Spirit filled New Year.
