John Heron and Alan Evans have kindly provided this report from the Keswick Market.

The weather proved to be a typical December day with the usual rain but thankfully no wind.

It was a joy to meet so many Christians who called to encourage us and sharing how the Lord was blessing them and their church.

The number of passers-by increased later in the day and many happily accepted a Christmas leaflet and a number of children had a go with the Guessing Box.

Two young men from Bangladesh, many of whom belong to the Muslim faith spent time talking about the Christian faith and they took tracts away. Pray they will find the truth in Jesus.

Another two young men from Glasgow pushing their father in a wheelchair engaged in conversation and when offered leaflets, taking them one said out brother needs this i.e “Purpose of your Life” – do pray for this family.

Later in the afternoon, a stall holder came and asked us to pray for her having walked up to a stall where she learnt the young man who worked on the stall and had sadly taken his life earlier in the week – do remember these dear people with real needs.
