KEDS Student Chaplain Revd Chris Lazenby writes:
I’m sure all our students and tutors will wish to congratulate KEDS student Lee Wardle on his appointment as pastor of the Gospel Light Evangelical Church, Pymble, Sydney, NSW, Australia on 19th August this year. Lee, who originally hails from Scotland, UK, and has been a member of the church for around five years, tells us that he’ll be ‘carrying out all teaching and preaching duties (as well as all those other things a pastor does, evangelism, visiting, arranging church outings etc.’). Lee and wife, Lorraine, who have five children, Luke, David, Sarah, Lea Ann and Caleb, are looking forward to the many challenges to come.
Lee wishes to extend his appreciation and thanks to KEDS lecturers who have helped him over the years, adding that his experience with the college has enriched his growing knowledge of God’s word. He also wishes to acknowledge his indebtedness to Lorraine ‘for the way she has fully supported and encouraged me to keep going despite all my health issues.’
On this latter point, I know Lee would value the prayers of our students and faculty regarding his recent heart problems – for healing, and for strength to deal with any problems to come. Let’s pray too, that God’s light truly will shine through Lee’s work in his new role as pastor.
