Inspire Ladies Day

Just a quick entry to remind you that tomorrow is the Inspire Regional Ladies day at Camberley hosted by the Beacon Church. 305 women are expected, but they still have a few places available - just turn up with £10 and a packed lunch! A few of us from Kerith are if you're interested, get in touch either personally or through the Kerith reception (01344 862699).
I'm really looking forward to a day with friends. Bev is a great woman - sparkly eyes, full of faith and fun! She will lead us well tomorrow. Our friend Liz Green from Reading is also speaking. She is a great friend of mine. A holy, faith-filled woman, she challenges me to live wholeheartedly for God.
I've been thinking about Real 2011..beginning to plan and dream for next year's conference. There's something special about choosing to set aside a day. A day out of our generally busy, active days and weeks. A day to spend with other women, to worship, to hear from other godly women. It's about clearing a space in our week, our heart, our head. Clearing a space so that we can hear God.
As you look ahead to 2011, what would you like to do? Where would you like to go? Do you have any conferences you'd love to attend? Have you ever thought of a day and night away on a personal retreat? I've found that I can do some of those things if I start to think about them early enough, and if I plan it and get the dates in the diary.
We'll be starting to talk about Real 2011 soon - so in the next few weeks, when you buy a new diary or calendar, please write REAL against 1st and 2nd July - you won't regret it! And then take a look around and see what else you'd like to do - things that will do you good and help you to grow.

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 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 slip over on the back door 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 …
