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

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 for myself what had …

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't recommend i…

Paula's Encouragement

I love a podcast!
Podcasts get me through situations where time might drag, or perhaps I've got some time to myself - I'm think a bike work-out at the Gym; a long car journey; or food for my mind and soul whilst I'm cooking.

I've just got back from holiday, and having missed a couple of Sundays, I have caught up with Kerith podcasts, listening to three outstanding preaches from Ben Pocock and Ben Oliver in Bracknell; and Heather Pocock in Sandhurst - I found myself wanting to join in with a few loud "amens" this morning at the gym!

What about you? Let me know when and where do you listen to podcasts?

Our guest contributor today is the wonderful Paula Ridgway - with her large heart , great enthusiasm and infectious faith, she is such a huge blessing to many at Kerith. 
Over to Paula for her encouragement to simply gather a few friends, to listen to a podcast together and then talk about it and see what God is saying. 

"Podcasts are great if one misses out on a …
