Sunday

A really good day again. Each of us went to a different church today. My church was a church of 30 it was very humbling to take part.

After the services Simon and I went to the pastor's home for lunch – it was traditional Zambia food of nseema, greens beans and chicken - again very moving as they live in such humble circumstances and have few means themselves, yet they share so generously with us.

This afternoon we were involved in a big gathering of pastors and volunteers involved in the project. We met orphans and farmers and they gave testimonies about how the project has transformed their lives - wonderful to see! We are all less tired than yesterday - and looking forward to eating the 2 chickens we were given yesterday :) (See Simon's blog for that!)

Tomorrow we start with an official meeting with the district commissioner. Then we are out at Kashito community visiting schools orphans and farmers, which is an hour away . In your prayers please thank God we are all feeling well and positive. Thank God for the visible results and progress of the project. Please continue to pray for us. Much love Catrina.

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…
