National Director John Libby

Although the nights can seem somewhat darker at this time of year let us be warmed by the thought that they are on the turn!

2023 saw the retirement of our dear friend and colleague Liz Wright yet other members of our team have stepped up to shoulder her many responsibilities. Let us thank the Lord for always supplying our needs at just the right time...if only we ask Him! 

Please remember the global Langham family at the beginning of a new year, especially those in new positions of responsibility. Pray for our International Director Riad Kassis as he juggles his roles of Director of Langham Scholars and LPI.

We ask you to continue to pray using the points below. You can download a printer-friendly version here.

Thank you again for you unwaivering support as 'prayer warriors' for Langham during 2024. 
May God bless your prayers and supplications and happy New Year!

In Christ,
John Libby
National Director, Langham Partnership UK and Ireland
