  1. We are very thankful to have Jim make the trip to be a part of this year’s retreat! “Born in Lanarkshire, Scotland, into a Christian family, I was saved when I was seven. My wife (Janet) and I have one son (David) who is married to Rachel and one grand-child (Jude). I studied Pharmacology at Glasgow University before five years postgraduate studies and teaching in the biological sciences field. Three years study at University of Glasgow and two years at Medical school, University of Newcastle upon Tyne. From 1984 to 1990 I provided senior management at Galen Ltd, a pharmaceutical firm in Northern Ireland. Janet and I were commended by the grace of God to His work, and we were called to the UK in 1990 for ministry at home and abroad. Currently the focus of our work is sharing the gospel with the street/homeless population of Tyneside, with special interest in those with severe drug and alcohol addiction problems. The local prison is also visited, conducting personal evangelism and weekly Bible classes with inmates over 23 years. Via an extensive distribution network, the Lord has arranged access for the gospel into all the prisons in the country. Along with members of the local assembly, we are working to establish a bright testimony, reaching the Gateshead community with the gospel. As a founding member of the Seed Sowers trust in the UK, the texts distribution is an integral part our activities and have had the honour of working in Canada, the U.S. and in Eastern Europe with Seed Sowers teams. Over the last number of years, I have had the privilege of supporting the work of the Lord in Malawi” (southernafricaliteraturetrust.com). We count it a privilege to have Jim with us this year!

  2. Michael has been a big blessing to us over the past couple retreats and we are thankful to have him back again! Michael says “I am eternally grateful to the Lord for saving my parents just before I reached the age of two. Not only did this result in a greater awareness of God and His Word in my youth, but Christ in our home created a stable and loving environment; one that was not present before this. My spiritual milestones began in my youth but had a profound impact on my early life and growth as a believer. I was saved at seven, baptized at 12, received into local church fellowship at 13 and soon after began to share the gospel in public meetings. Looking back today, I see God's protection in my life. He has preserved me from trouble and got me out of trouble when I failed. I have been happily married (Jody) for almost 17 years, we have three beautiful children (Jacob, Maegan and Joanna). We serve the Lord at the Langstaff Assembly, and in my spare time, I work as a construction industry professional and consultant. My personal study interests include understanding the biblical context and culture of God's Word in order to bring more relevance, interest, and understanding of the Holy Scriptures.” We are encouraged to have him once again with us for another year! Hope to see you there!

  3. Dale Vitale will be one of our speakers this year! Dale was born again at age 10 in 1969 in Boston, MA, he is married 37 years this summer (Becky), and has three married children (Tiffany, Doug and Emily) and 4 grand-children. As a helper in Gospel work since 1980, they were commended full time in 1990. They worked two areas with much blessing from the Lord and testimonies were established, one in Pennsylvania and another in Montana among former Hutterites. In 2011, their son was severely injured in Afghanistan. They spent a little over two years at his bed-side between many surgeries. They moved back to PA to help with their son's care, along with his wife in 2013. Since then, they have helped, not only locally, but preaching the Gospel, and working with children's outreach across the U.S. and Canada, printing and distributing Gospels of John, teaching the scriptures in ministry meetings and conferences as the Lord leads. They value the prayers of God’s people! We count it a privilege to have Dale with us this year and are thankful for his support!

  6. “Jesus, as the Son of Man, is not only inspirational—He is epic. Knowing that He got up from the grave after such a savage and brutal martyrdom should make us as men pump our fists in the air in worship. Here before us is a man who was man enough to drink in death and spit out victory. He is fully God and yet truly and fully human. He is a man just like—and yet wholly unlike—us, all at the same time. So if we’re looking for an example of manhood, we need look no further than the cross and the empty tomb. Jesus, over and over again, shows us what it means to really be a man.” Eric Mason, Manhood Restored
