Unique

Well the launch of Serenje penpals went really well last Sunday - you came up trumps ladies! You can still visit the table in reception this Sunday after the 9 and 11 meetings at Kerith - come and find "your" lady to start communicating with. It's been great watching women look through the file to choose a Serenje woman that they connect with, so thank you - and if you haven't taken a look, I'll see you in reception on Sunday!

Just a reminder that Unique Energy meet every Monday at 10am at the Look Out (the "Go Ape gate) for a good paced walk - it's so easy to come along and join in - bring a child in a (sturdy!) buggy bring a friend or a dog.
All ages All abilities - Fitness and Friendship -a great start to the week!

I need your help please!...
...Do you have a story, account, quote or thought about your experience of coming to a large Unique event ?(eg one of the Saturday Breakfasts; or the evening "Talkshow"; or the "Action Morning")
As many of you know, we will soon be producing a Kerith magazine - hoorah! Well, the team are asking for quotes about all the different ministries and groups that we have - quotes from you, the ones who come along, take part and belong - quotes that bring it all to life and encourage other women to take part.
Through conversations with many of you, I know that God spoke and changed the direction of lives of women through the large events -so my request is could you supply the details please?
If you have a story,you can post your quote as a comment to this blog; or email me directly - it can be a s short as a one-liner, I'd love to hear from you. Let me know whether or not you want your name included too.THANK YOU x
By the way, I know you're going to be delighted to hear that we have some great opportunities to meet back together again in large events in 2010...and we also have a Women's Conference planned for Saturday 3rd July - put it in your diaries now! Any thoughts on these future events - please do get in touch.
Wherever you are, whatever your circumstances Be Blessed today - God is good all the time -so enjoy the changing colours of the trees and proactively do one thing today that "replenishes your bucket".

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

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…
Well last week had some highs and lows.

Highs included Simon's birthday and my cast coming off - hoorah!

I'm now officially walking - although it often looks like shuffling! Great to have 2 feet back in use - if only for planting firmly into the ground so that I can make the bed or get something out of a cupboard. It's a huge help to have my hands free when I go up and down stairs too. I'm of course being a good girl with the exercises. No idea what people mean when they say "don't do too much" - I join in if I feel ok and work out afterwards if it was really ok and good to stretch myself, or "Too Much"! Anyhow, it's good to be feeling more like myself again. Apparently It's still a slow process of building up strength and flexibility, so I need to keep on being patient!

The low was that our 12 year old labrador died - Nemo was a big character, and a huge presence in our home - he really was one of the family. We all said goodbye, we all th…
