Let me introduce you to the Lovely Mr B. We have been married and living in London for the last 20 years and he is my biggest supporter and friend.
Mr B is a criminal lawyer/advocate and is always very busy as you can imagine! He works all over London and can be in any court on any day, sometimes spending long periods of time in the same court if it’s a big trial. He loves his job and particularly likes working with youth.
He has a big heart for youth and has been the Youth leader at Kings Church London (Lee site) working with 9-14’s for many years. He loves to get alongside them and help them to grow in their love for Jesus and work out how they can live this in school/college. He has also come into the school where I work (Haseltine Primary School) when he has free time to mentor some of the youth.
Mr B also has a heart for community and combines his major love of sport, particularly football (Nottingham Forest is his team) with having a house full of people. He organises regular Monday night football and this always attracts a lot of youth and various sporting tournaments that seem to involve a lot of loud celebrating and food!!!!!
Currently Mr B runs a men’s group with a friend where their shared vision is to inspire and encourage men to be open and authentic about their lives and their walk with God. It is a place for them to grow and feel safe amongst a ‘band of brothers’. This group is at the beginning of it’s journey together and will hopefully lead to weekends away and the opportunity to attend men’s conferences together to get inspired and bring about a culture change in their families, relationships, work places and the church.
More than anything Mr B is good fun and can be very funny (but don’t tell him I said that!) and this is why I love spending time with him. I love that he has supported and encouraged me as I have become involved with Training for Supernatural Ministry (TSM) and I know it’s a sacrifice on our time together and his sleep as he picks me up from the station every Thursday evening at ridiculous O’clock! Thank you so much Mr B I couldn’t do it without you.
I can’t wait to see what happens next on our exciting journey together with God!!!
