Off to Serenje!

Thanks so much to all those who have written letters to Serenje women.
I know that they will be humbled and blessed by your encouragement, love and prayers. Believe that your words will have a huge impact in another woman's life.
So, as you read this, we will be finishing off the trip preparations ready to leave at 3pm. I will be delivering my childrens' cases to our good friends' homes...getting last minute essentials...and probably checking again that we have passports...and all the essential paperwork for the team.
Please do pray for us whilst we are away in Zambia. We covet your prayers! So perhaps every time you wash your hands, you could think of us and pray - God hears even the shortest of requests!
The team consists of : Simon and myself; Colin Boyle; Robert Plant; Alan Lander; Sola Osinoiki; and (hooray for another woman!) Val Cottee.
Pray for protection and good health.
Pray that we would be used by God to bless others - I know we'll be stretched - please pray we'll know the Holy Spirit's strength and power.
Please pray for our families back in the UK.
Please pray for the Pastors and the Volunteers that we'll be spending time with. We want to be helpful and relevant. We want to hear God's voice for their situations.

We are so blessed to be able to travel to Serenje on your behalf, and representing Kerith. We're really grateful for the opportunity, and trust God for His purposes, plans and protection.
Unsure whether I'll be able to update this blog for a while...but check out Simon's blog for uptodate info.

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…
