Bishop Kasele

Bishop Samson Kasele is the Pastor of Pentecostal Assemblies of God Church (PAOG).


He is the EFZ representative in Serenje. He is married to Ruth, who is the District Women’s Director. They have 2 children – Shiloh (14) and Samson (6). Bishop Kasele is a humble leader, held in high regard by the other pastors and people in Serenje.

Bishop Kasele wrote Simon a very encouraging letter this week - here's an extract for us all: "Know this that your efforts are not in vain. The Lord you serve will surely reward you all. You didn’t just choose a place convenient to you but as the Lord directed you. You opened your hearts wide to us and your sweetness flowed through out. Keep up the spirit."


Prayer request:
God to cause His grace to abound on our ministry as we oversee our area

Dear Catrina, I just want to say a huge thank you for taking the time and giving your attention to sharing these introductions to the people you met in Serenje. It makes the whole thing come alive, and of course you always tell us about their families as well as the work they do which I appreciate. The photographs are fabulous too-what a talent you have and good to see it being put to use.

You probably don't get many responses because I think so many of us get an alert via email or read your posts through an RSS reader feed where you can't leave a comment- and every time I have read these posts I think-wow-so special, must tell Catrina, so now I have -so this is also from all the other people who probably thought they'd like to thank you too!

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…
Well last week had some highs and lows.

Highs included Simon's birthday and my cast coming off - hoorah!

I'm now officially walking - although it often looks like shuffling! Great to have 2 feet back in use - if only for planting firmly into the ground so that I can make the bed or get something out of a cupboard. It's a huge help to have my hands free when I go up and down stairs too. I'm of course being a good girl with the exercises. No idea what people mean when they say "don't do too much" - I join in if I feel ok and work out afterwards if it was really ok and good to stretch myself, or "Too Much"! Anyhow, it's good to be feeling more like myself again. Apparently It's still a slow process of building up strength and flexibility, so I need to keep on being patient!

The low was that our 12 year old labrador died - Nemo was a big character, and a huge presence in our home - he really was one of the family. We all said goodbye, we all th…
