Fragile seasons happen to all of us, with wildly different levels of intensity. It can happen instantly through times of tragedy. Or happen slowly through the highs and lows of life.
Hot on the heels of Tough Conference, I decided to take the opportunity of a car ride to Sydney with Pastors Tebo & Becky Mpanza, to record a podcast with this incredible couple.
Tebo & Becky are the campus pastors for Hope City Church in Leeds, UK, and were special guests at Tough Conference 2019. They truly are an exceptional couple, and I didn’t want to let them get on a plane back to the UK without giving you the chance to discover a bit of their story, and hear their heart on some big issues.
So - no blog this month! If you are normally a ‘blog girl’, not a ‘podcast girl’, can I ask you to make an exception this month? There’ll be a fresh blog out next month (June - argh this year is flying by!) but this month I’d love you to listen to the podcast instead. You’ll be glad you did!
(Huge thanks to Tebo & Becky for getting up at 5am just so they could record this podcast for me! Absolute legends. And a special shout out to Dave Connett for the expert driving and nuggets of wisdom along the way.)
