He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah Ch 6 v 8
Keith and Pauline met Tony and Margaret in August 2005 at a Christian camp hosted by their church, the South of Reading Christian Fellowship, where Tony is an elder. They began to support the work of Micah from then, and in August 2006 Keith and Pauline heard that Steve and Jenny could no longer serve on the board of Trustees. Keith believed he had heard from the Lord that Tony and Margaret would be Trustees to fill in the gap left by Stephen and Jenny. Pauline immediately said ‘don’t you say anything to them’. Keith was very restrained and didn’t. He did ask David, Lynda, Martin and Margaret to pray about the possibility of Tony and Margaret joining them. Pauline was sitting having a quiet chat later that evening; when a very excited Keith appeared with Tony in tow. Keith insisted that he had not said anything, but that Tony had just come up to him and said ‘if you need any more Trustees I am willing to be one for you’. We were further thrilled when Margaret also agreed to join him on the board of Trustees, and further encouraged when the other Trustees were in agreement to invite them to join the Micah Trustees. Tony has his own computer business and Margaret teaches at the Christian school which their church has started.
Tony and Margaret are actively involved in door to door evangelism in their community; they along with six to eight teams go out, door to door, offering bibles. They follow this up with barbeques in the summer. This work is part of the South of Reading Christian Fellowship.
