In the autumn of 2008 we applied to be a placement church for a student from All Nations Christian College in Ware. This college prepares and trains people who feel that God is calling them to go “To the ends of the earth” for him. We were delighted when Sharon Jones was placed with us for two years.
Over those two years Sharon made such a difference to the life of the church here in Great Ashby. She threw herself into all sorts of church activities. She preached, led worship, joined us in our Alpha course, she taught in our children’s groups, got alongside individuals to share the gospel with them, she ate, laughed, cried and prayed with us.
