312 Women in Bracknell for the REAL Conference

So exciting to see that women are still booking in for the REAL Conference this Friday evening and all day Saturday - it's not too late to come and join us http://www.kerith.co.uk/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=200612

We're busy busy busy preparing for you all - bring it on!

Last night I had the privilege of meeting up with Donika, Ornela, Valentina and Bardha from Albania and Marija from Macedonia who have all come over for the Conference. We were also joined by Mrs Leah Mutala who is our key contact in Serenje Zambia. We had a great time getting to know one another- realising that women (and children/teenagers it seems!) are the same the whole world round. We didn't get to talking about husbands...maybe next time?!

It's so exciting to hear their stories of what God is doing in their lives and their Churches. I've been thinking about the theme of the conference being "Real" - that we'd live authentic lives of faith, allowing God into every area of our lives - and they are doing just that. Two of the girls told us some of their story of growing up and being a teenager in a communist country - they started their Church when they were 18 and 21, and Albania had just become independent. Come and talk to them at the Conference - you will be blessed and encouraged - and I know that they will too! (their English is great!)

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story:  Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!   Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone! Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here. I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!)  Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases. 1 Contact lense solution I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight. 2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can

Clare's Macedonia reflections

You'll remember that in Ma y I went to Macedonia?  I took a team of wonderful Kerith women, and together we supported Marija Vuletic as she led  the Vredna Conference in Skopje (the capital city) Macedonia. It was such a rich time (challenging too at times!)  we gave, but  we also received so much. It was a real privilege to stand alongside these wonderful women - our sisters in Christ. Here are Clare's reflections of our time together. Spending time with the women in Macedonia spoke to me so much about our world-wide family in faith. God really is bringing people from every people group into relationship with Him! We were joined by women from Serbia and the Roma community. I think joy in hardship sums up what many of the women are experiencing right now. Some have only been believers for a very short time, but their joy in belonging to Jesus and being on a journey with Him was so clear. I spent time talking to some of the youngest women at the conference. A few of
