Geirda | Commendations
"I heartily commend Lois Adams to you. She is a servant hearted, gospel focussed worker for the kingdom. She is bilingual and highly skilled. She is in gospel work for the long haul. I have witnessed her diligence , creativity and willingness to work hard, in a team or on her own, in the service of others, churches (which are not her own) and our needy community. In days when some consider there to be lack of gospel workers we now have the opportunity to support financially and prayerfully someone who God has raised up for this very purpose. "

Lois Adams is a gift of God to the church in Wales. She is able to help us to build bridges using the Arts to many of our contemporaries.

Lois worked with us for 5 months preparing for our church outreach over 4 days at the Hay Book Festival. Thousands of people would be passing our stall and we needed something eye catching and also to potentially draw them in to deeper discussions
Lois was able to develop with us the concept of “belonging” - in geographical location, identity and faith. We had a wonderful exhibition which Lois designed and hung for us and we also were able to give free hot drinks to people as they viewed the exhibition.
Lois was wonderful to work with and was a positive energy in our outreach. She was reflective, taking in our ideas, and was available to check out thoughts we had as a church. Lois took part in a creative way in our 2 church services and remained with us throughout the whole of our 4 outreach days.
