More Extraordinary Women


These are some of the women that we met on the Training day in Serenje Boma. They come from a variety of local Churches and are mostly the volunteers that go out into the communities to support the vulnerable families. They are the people on the ground. Many of them also live with very difficult situations - some are living with HIV; many care for orphans from their extended families; some are widows.All of them know what it is to work hard.
You'll see that some of the ladies are holding letters - Zoe and I were swamped by ladies with letters, all asking for pen pals from the UK!
What we want to do is for women from Kerith to write to these and other women, and link up primarily as Prayer Partners. The practical details are yet to be finalised -and I'm going to need someone else to head it up for me (please!)However, it's likely that we will send letters out from our community 4 times a year. The letters will be sent all together to the Serenje communities - with information about us, some greetings and prayers.We'll be able to write to different women each time. perhaps some Lifegroups or other small groups in the Church can commit to writing letters too.
Connecting and reaching out to women in Zambia will be such a powerful expression of love , both for us and for the Serenje women. So I'm excited to think that a new Unique ministry will be birthed - and I'm praying for the right leader!
We are blessed to be a blessing.

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…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
