I will go


Give me ears to hear Your Spirit
Give me feet to follow through
Give me hands to touch the hurting
And the faith to follow You

Give me grace to be a servant
Give me mercy for the lost
Give me passion for Your glory
Give me passion for the cross

And I will go where there are no easy roads
Leave the comforts that I know
I will go and let this journey be my home
I will go, I will go

I’ll let go of my ambition
Cut the roots that run too deep
I will learn to give away
What I cannot really keep, What I cannot really keep

Help me see with eyes of faith
Give me strength to run this race

I will go Lord where Your glory is unknown
I will live for You alone
I will go because my life is not my own
I will go, I will go, I will go.

A quiet dignity filled Emanuel Chapel as we remembered the life of Pastor Andrei Pop called home on 25th October, 2016. A sacred and shared life, set apart in devotion to a life of service. A student of excellence in Theology who absorbed the Word of God and enjoyed learning. Who heard and answered the call, accepting the Great Commission with a Passion for the lost.

In recognition and remembrance of his ministry The Chair of Christian Service Scholarship will be awarded to one Theology student each year in Emanuel University who demonstrates the same commitment to evangelism.


Manuela, also a former student of Emanuel, greeted me holding Baby Abigail Andrea (Abbey) lovingly in her arms. ‘I know you love babies, please hold her’. As I held her close to my heart, her dark eyes searching mine, she smiled placing her tiny hand in mine. Mark 10: 16. ‘Then He took the children into His arms…’

Manuela, may you know the gentle touch of the Master at the outset of each new day as you rest at His feet drawing strength from sweet communion with Him alone. May you be assured that His presence will heal and calm your hurting heart and the tranquility of His love surround you each day.

We remember you.

Shirley, 29 April, 2017.


In October last year the Lord called Pastor Andrei Pop home. He was aged 28, a former Theology Student of Dr Moore, and was tragically killed in a motorcar accident. In January Manuela gave birth to their little girl.


This week his widow Manuela dedicated Andreea to the Lord. It was such a sad occasion and Manuela cried throughout. Please pray for her and her little one. I plan to meet up with her in Cluj during this visit to Romania.
Psalm 10:14
But you, O God, do see trouble and grief; you consider it to take it in hand. The victim commits himself to you; you are the helper of the fatherless. NIV
