As we run up to Christmas 2017 it impossible to look back at this extraordinary year without thanksgiving. The Lord has kept us, blessed our lives and blessed the ministry of Ffald y Brenin quite amazingly. And if you are breathing then he has blessed you and kept you as well. While the world is shaken, we rejoice that we have received a promise that never fails and a kingdom that can never be shaken.
What a contrast to the experience of those who to date believe that this world is all there is. No room for hope there, then!
So, we will save the review of the year and couple it with our New Year blog. As our latest tweet says – ‘The cradle is empty; the cross is empty; the tomb is empty. Because He is alive we can look forward to 2018 with full confidence!’
May you know the joy and peace of the Living Lord this Christmas and throughout the coming year.

It’s been too long since the last Blog but my goodness, Aslan is on the move!
Hundreds of people are pouring into Ffald y Brenin from across Wales and around the world and many have been encouraged, had powerful encounters with the Lord or been healed. We are struggling to manage the numbers attending our monthly Prayer Day, held in Jabes along the valley, yet the Lord has been gloriously present.
There seems to be a major change underway in Wales; hundreds of Christians took to the streets during the summer and hundreds of people have been responding to the gospel invitation. Perhaps rather more than 1,000 are in follow-up who were neither enquirers nor worshippers just three months ago. Awesome! More please, Lord, many more.
The Godwin’s have been on the move as well. Following on from the June Conference we were in the south of England for a great weekend with the Lighthouse church in Poole, then away for a welcome break, only to fly out a few days later to Scotland for the Refuel event where very many people made a clear response to the Lord. Since then we have crisscrossed Wales to speak at some of the new local prayer meetings that seem to be popping up all over the Principality and spoken at Tear Fund HQ in London. Now we are preparing for our second visit to Norway where a national movement of Local Houses of Prayer appears to be developing.
We hope you were able to enjoy the summer weather wherever you were and are prepared for the coming season – our God reigns!

‘That is the best June Conference we have ever had’ exclaimed some of the attendees at our 2017 June Conference, ‘Keeping in Step with the Spirit’. It was a great time indeed with many signifying that they had met with the Lord through his word or his touch, sometimes quietly, sometimes very powerfully.
It was certainly the most international June Conference so far, with friends from Norway, Germany, USA, Ireland, Eire, Scotland, England, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand in attendance. All our available team were present and all but one Trustee together with many Friends and others who connect through The Caleb Connection (TCC).
Worship was special and we are grateful to Adrian who stepped into the breach until Owain arrived.
All this was in the context of complicated and unstable times for the UK. The Government looked unstable and Brexit talks were commencing. The great news is that God’s kingdom is stable, certain and secure forever and holds eternal promise. Truth is found in Jesus Christ. Who else has the words of eternal life?
Our next Ffald y Brenin-based Conference is this year’s Kingdom Power and Glory (KPG) to be held 10-12 November. More info is available on our Events page.
