Wednesday

We had the privilege of speaking to 150 women today - Val and I taught a bible study on the fruits of the Holy Spirit - the women shared in small groups and also prayed together. It is such a privilege to speak to these hard working women - we prayed for less of us and more of God in our words. The women took many notes. We also had opportunities to pray for them.

We distributed the penpal letters - which they were delighted to receive. We also gave each woman a gift of two postcards - Beccy designed them illustrating the fruits of the spirit - they looked beautiful and the women received them so eagerly.

We were very moved by the women's response to Leah giving vision for the girls dormitory - they spontaneously came forward with an offering totalling around 125000 kwacha (around £17) - now that made me cry!

The pastors conference went well again - they all said they felt a real sense of connection. Simon, Alan and Sola all spoke- and the pastors responded very positively . This evening Colin led a worship seminar which went very well - especially when he was interrupted by a power cut...and simply carried on!

This evening we've also had a school's committee meeting which was very positive as we move forward with the Serenje / Bracknell school links.

We had a power cut tonight so we have been sat around a candle talking. The power is back on now so we are going to eat!

Hard to believe tomorrow is our last day here as we travel to Lusaka on Friday and fly home on Saturday.

Still much for us to do tomorrow! Catrina x

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…

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 …
