One of my good Protestant friends in Northern Ireland is Sammy Wilson. He is Member of Parliament for East Antrim, and Minister of Finance and Personnel in the Northern Ireland Assembly. One of his main achievements in life was to be Assistant Chief Examiner for GCE Economics in Northern Ireland - whilst I was the Chief Examiner!
This week Sammy is at Westminster, taking part in Transport Committee meetings and he will also receive a briefing from Christian Solidarity Worldwide. It is good having a politician who takes his Christian faith seriously. Please remember Sammy in your prayers.
Tomorrow we shall be visiting the Caledonian Canal.
