BCF Newsletter Jan 2018 10022018

Hello from everyone at

Hello from everyone at Benitachell Christian Fellowship! BCF 7th Anniversary celebrations - a good time was had by all... It’s the beginning of January and we are now well into Winter mode. The days are lovely and warm but night time and early morning see us pushing up the heating thermostat a few notches. This time last year we had snow in Benitachell, Moraira and Javea! It's been a busy year since our last newsletter. The Cumbre del Sol is recovering from the severe fire that blighted our beautiful mountain, leaving it looking like a lunar landscape and devastated parts of Javea. That said, it’s a great time for us to reflect on our Fellowship in 2017 as we look forward to the year ahead. ​Snow on the Cumbre Jan 2017 Snow on Javea beach Devastation aftermath of Cumbre fires 2​ | ​Page

In August 2017 BCF celebrated its 7th Anniversary – more on this later, but you can see from the picture above it was well attended by members and friends alike​. T​here were several “firsts”​ during the year​: the visit by the Next Step mission team from Pete and Pat Kingham's church in the UK; the introduction of a social secretary to organise Fellowship events; the introduction of the prayer chain​;​ and the election of two new deacons – their first time in such a role. Having been banished to the depths of the Centre Social during its refurbishment in September, we are now back upstairs in our brighter and lighter new home. On the family front our extended family grew with the addition of more grandchildren: Lizzie Williams - Orla; Laura and David Miskimin – Oliver; Jill and Dave Cannon – Suzanna; Lorraine and Eric Henshaw - Orla. Called Home Sadly, we have lost some of our friends who have made their final journey and are with God – Peter Cox and Frank Hakim. Peter was taken from us suddenly on 12 March 2017 after a short illness whilst attending a healing conference in Helsinki with his wife, Tricia. Peter was a larger-than-life person and is missed by many people across Benitachell and Javea on whose lives Peter had a great impact. Frank Hakim – husband of Margaret, passed away on 18 April. A retired surgeon, Frank was a frequent visitor with his wife Margaret, daughters and granddaughters. He had been poorly for some time, and is sadly missed by his family and the fellowship. Memorable Visits Stories from Kenya Phillip and Valerie Laver visited during June to preach for us. On his first week Philip had to contend with a local fiesta going on outside our window and a grumpy dog in the garden below who wanted to join in the singing! Undaunted, Phillip gave a great sermon centred around the Holy Spirit. Following our summer General Meeting, they delivered a wonderful slide show and talk about their activities ​during their missionary work in Africa. 3​ | ​Page
