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

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 …
