Bits and Pieces

Seems like we are having some supply problems in getting hold of Bittersweet :(  We are hoping to have some copies in before next weekend, but you may want to purchase your copy direct from Amazon UK. It's £9.89 and there's no charge for p+p if you choose the standard delivery (3-5 days). It really is a fantastic book that I know will bless you, and so I really encourage you to get hold of it and read it. If you can't afford It right now, borrow a friend's copy, or put it on your wish-list ! I haven't had anyone requesting the free copy I was think I probably made it confusing! Basically if you can afford it, please buy it. If you can't, please let me know you want to be entered into the "lucky dip" for a free book. You'll then get it straight from Shauna to you.

Requests for help
Great response this morning for Simon's requests for help. Hoorah, we can park in the college car park again on Sundays (no more wet feet walking through the puddles in the subways!) long as we have enough car-parkers. so, if you too fancy waving a wand and wearing a fluorescent jacket one Sunday a month, perhaps this is the team for you?
Other needs are:
8 people needed to serve coffee/tea once a month before the 9am meeting (yummy, coffee on arrival :)
4 more host families for Wilow international visitors
Serving and helping like this is great - you are part of a team, you get to contribute to Church life and you get to meet new people. So if you aren't yet on a serving team, or you're fairly new to us why not volunteer once a month? You can volunteer by letting Sue Ranger know, or you can leave your name with one of our lovely Kerith receptionists  (tel:01344 862699)

Walking in the Look out
The Unique walk leaves the "Go Ape" gate at 10 sharp each Monday morning - are you coming too?
All women are welcome - it's a good paced walk of about 50 minutes through the forest. Bring yourself plus suitable shoes- dogs are welcome too, and also children in buggies. Lianne's got a new route for us tomorrow, so come and start the day and week with some fresh air, great company and always a few laughs. Last week I fell over my dog; I've also nearly propelled a baby right out of their buggy when I was "helping"..what tomorrow?!

At home, we've survived the first week of being 'back in routine' of work and school - I'm trying to have a positive serving attitude towards the packed lunches so it's all good! Looking forward to the week ahead - including a Serenje trip preparation meeting tomorrow night. Please pray for us as we prepare and also as I organise family life whilst we're gone!

Off to Church now - Revolution are leading worship, so exciting; and will hear Simon for the third time - praise God, each time I hear the Holy Spirit say different things to me.
I've heard some wonderful examples of God Whispers recently, so will be telling a couple of those stories later this week.

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 …
