Letters for Zambia

Well I'm off to Zambia on Wednesday 6th October - exciting! Still lots to do - please pray for me, my family, dog etc! Please pray for the team and our preparations...and pray for all the people we will meet and impact. We want to bring God's words and God's love to these precious people who are serving Him and leading others in Serenje.

So, I would LOVE to take lots of lovely encouraging letters with me to bless the women.
If you had a penpal contact, would you please write a brief letter to her this week? Whether you've heard from her or not please. It's good to tell her something aout your life and especially your family and church. Then include a favouruite Bible verse to encourage her, and assure her of your love and prayers across the miles!
If you haven't written before, please do write - perhaps just address is "Dear friend in Serenje". Mel is doing a fab job in coordinationg the penpals, and she has a number of letters from Serenje ladies who don't yet have penpals. So please let her know if you would like one. More details on the Kerith website here .
I can't tell you what a huge blessing your letter will be to a woman in serenje. Please don't feel you have nothing to offer her - your interest, love and prayers will be an enormous blessing to her.
Letters can be given in at Kerith reception for me to take to Zambia next week. So why not put the kettle on now, and write a quick letter. Thank you x

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…

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…
