Highlight 4: Extraordinary Women



Mrs Leah Mutala

Leah is a most extraordinary woman - the sort of woman you would go anywhere just to hang out with her - observe her, learn from her.
She works for The Evangelical fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) our partner in Zambia.She is the Programme manager for our project in Serenje, leading her team of Rita and Mumba. She coordinates what we are doing in Serenje - the Pastors fellowship and Alex (our worker on the ground)all report to her.
When Mrs Mutala goes into each community she has a God-given gift of absolutely knowing where they are,who they are and what they need from her in terms of leadership. She can be stern, directional, funny - she relates to the women, to the men, to he youth. She is called "Mum" in the communities and is held in very high regard everywhere she goes - whether Government officials or Village farmers. In short - they ALL LOVE HER! Watching her is an inspiration and I've already learnt so much from her. I wish I could spend longer with her - and if you met her, you would too!
She is God's woman for this time and for Serenje. She truly seizes the moment!
Please pray for her - she has huge influence,with an enormous job to do but she is one (human!) woman with a life and a family!
She is a very special lady.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident ...to slip over on the back door mat....in my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…
