THE ‘POSH & BECKS OF THE NORTH’ WELCOME NEW ADDITION TO FAMILY
The ‘Posh & Becks’ of the North, Bruce and Janine Dyer, were the featured couple in the Keep The Faith’s yearly edition about love, marriage and relationships. This Barnsley-based couple not only have a strong, loving marriage, but also work together in ministry, sharing the message of the Gospel in prisons, events and within their local community.
The couple, who have four children, have recently welcomed a new edition to their family: Amira Grace Dyer, the couple’s first daughter, who was born on May 21. As you can imagine, Grace – as she is affectionately known – is experiencing a lot of love from her four brothers, as well as from the wider community that she is a part of. It’s Keep The Faith’s prayer that God continues to bless the Dyer family and all that they do.

LAUNCH OF NEW MULTI-LINGUAL PUBLISHING COMPANY
Keep The Faith editor, Marcia Dixon, was one of the guest speakers at the launch of Gihon Publishing, a new company based in Hatfield, Herts, created by author, publisher and missionary, Ruth Dickson.
The company’s unique niche is its ability to translate products into a range of languages, such as Niger-Congo languages to Afro-Asiatic languages and Indo-European languages to Sino-Tibetan languages.
Gihon Publishing works with a range of clients – Christian and secular – but founder, Ruth Dickson, is hoping that believers will see her business as a tool they can use to fulfil the Great Commission to spread the Gospel throughout the world. Ruth shared: “Gihon Publishing is being used as an evangelical instrument to publish to the nations. It is set to open the door and make it easier for organisations and individuals with evangelical endeavours to disciple the nations.”
