Playground Project - Romania
A very exciting project that builds on what Flame has accomplished with Maramures Social Services over the past 2 years. 18 months ago we supplied 16 new beds and some extra furniture for a home that looks after children and young adults with severe learning disabilities in Calinest, and 4 months ago, we were able to equip another home in Seghet with 12 new beds – again for use for people with the same health challenge. We have received letters of appreciation, and indeed these two places are very close to where Calin Rezmuves – our practical assistant – spent the first 19 years of his life in an orphanage.
Out of the success of these projects we have launched the Playground Project – designed to create an outdoor space for therapy and recreation for those with severe learning challenge. You will find details on this website by clicking onto this link - this is the leaflet that we have issued to provide further information and an opportunity for people to respond.
I visited the home 2 months ago to assess the feasibility and accountability of the site and those who would be in charge, and am confident in recommending this to our Flame family for support.
Sixth Form Conference with Invictus Academies
We are delighted to report that the Sixth Form Conference, sponsored by Flame on 22nd November, was very well attended. 120 Sixth Formers from the 6 Academies registered, and the Head of Sixth Form has since written to express her appreciation for the workshops, discussion, and follow-through on that day. The theme for the conference was mental health, and speakers, including Dave, addressed issues relating to this area of wellbeing that is so important for the times in which we live. There are plans to follow up with a younger group of students in the New Year.
Dave has attended many meetings of late, including conducting 4 assemblies at Q3 Langley, in what has now become known as ‘The Chairman’s Christmas Address’. He was encouraged with the response from students and staff.
Goodbye St James House
Flame has been served notice to be out of our current office premises at St James House in Dudley by the end of February 2020. We are actively researching other facilities and would value your prayerful support as we do need to find a place that is secure and convenient, and provides what we need to serve our administrative and storage purposes. Please pray that we might find what we are looking for.
Many of you have been bombarded with requests for permission to make contact with you, but we have to comply with the law of the land – not only is that Biblical, but it also protects you all from unsolicited communications. Organisations will also undergo random checks to make sure that there is compliance.
It is therefore critical and essential that if you want to receive information from Flame Trust Ltd regarding its ministry and activities, that you send us your agreement that indicates you wish to receive newsletters, updates etc. Therefore, if you haven't already completed this form, please do ensure you do so, and return it to us – either electronically or by printing it off and by popping it into the post. Sadly, there will be a limit as to how many more requests we can make for this information.
