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.

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 all...so 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 ...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…

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 …
