So Much to Say!

Oh my word - so much to say and so little time!

Firstly it was a FAB weekend in Church! Adrian Holloway was just brilliant (and I'm not just saying that because he reads this blog :))
Ok is it just me? I'm a little bit cynical , a bit sceptical ...I really do believe that God heals today. I do believe that "the same power that conquers the grave lives in me". What helps me to embrace that, and believe it, and pray for it is great men like Adrian. His calm manner reassured me - no "whipping up the crowds", it was all "normal" and that was just great. Faith rose in our hearts and there was expectancy and belief. God did indeed heal people - and save people and it was wonderful to play even a small part in praying for  the many people who responded on Sunday. He'll be back at the Kerith on 19th December, so prepare to invite your friends again!

Then (trauma) I lost the dog yesterday :(
Thankfully I also got him back, but that 20 minutes of running (in heels) through Lily Hill Park was very traumatic. Ok here's the sad bit - I even cried.
Also, Simon had barely arrived at Heathrow for his flight to Albania, and I'd already lost the dog - it was looking like it was going to be a thoroughly rubbish week!
Thankfully it was ok - I did that typical mum thing and was so relieved to have Nemo back...and yet so cross with him for not coming when I had been calling and was so worried! All's forgiven now though - and he has a new name tag on his collar too...just in case! And today's been a good day with no disasters.

Simon just phoned from Albania, he's having a great time with Andy, Ken and Ann. Catch up with all the news at Ken and Ann's blog . They've had a very good day with Robert and Mira. Simon has no internet connection, so I imagine he's finding that rather challenging!!!

So, lastly, NEWS FLASH.......
yes we've extended the earlybird period for two weeks. Primarily this is beacause we just don't feel we've told enough women about it yet. It's also because we're women and we can change our minds and that's ok :)
So please come and book into the conference - it's going to be a fantastic time spent together and with God. A chance to have a day of no responsibilites. A chance to perhaps be a bit out of your comfort zone. A chance to do something for yourself.
And if you're all booked in , can you be our voices - can you tell other women in our community and in other Churches all about the conference? There are plenty of invites to use, available at the Kerith reception. We've booked in about 80 women so far, with an additional 8 places being sponsored (thank youxxx). I'd love us to reach the 150 mark by the end of Sunday.

Hey, thanks for reading to the end - be blessed
Love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. I Peter 4:8
More tomorrow x

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 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 slip over on the back door 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…

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 …
