Thursfields’ Travels

Go into all the world and make disciples…  We thank God constantly for the privilege he has given us to serve him in so many places.  Thank you so much for your prayers, emails and notes: it is so encouraging to know that as Paul writes ‘we are fellow workers in God’s service’.
