Beloved in Christ Jesus: Greetings in the name of the crucified, risen, and ascended King, our Lord Jesus Christ!
As I write this, my first letter to you all as Chairman of the Gafcon Primates Council, I want to begin by giving my heartfelt thanks to God for the work of my friend and predecessor, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh. His courage, clarity of vision, godly wisdom and love for the Lord have been so essential to the growth of Gafcon in recent years.

This last Sunday Bishop Eric was able to go down to Visalia to be part of the dedication of the new property at St. Paul's Anglican Church. St. Paul's lost their property recently, but with a lot of prayer and hard work the people at St. Paul's lead by Fr. Richard James have been able to purchase a plot of land for their church. Please keep Fr. James and all the people of St. Paul's in your prayers.
My dear people of God,
I wish to begin my letter to you this month by giving thanks to Almighty God for his blessing upon those of us who gathered in Dubai recently for our G19 Conference. We enjoyed wonderful fellowship and took counsel together on the theme ‘Serving Christ Faithfully in the Nations’.
