Thanks to Penny for spotting my previous blog typo re the Gift day total - it was actually a fantastic £110,000!
As an example,just £5 will enable a grade 9 child to take their exams to get into High school.
Next year one of the ways that the money will be used is to support orphans and vulnerable children through their schooling.We want to enable 1,900 children to access their education through funding from the Project. Education in Zambia is essentially free, but children need to have their uniforms, pencils and books bought for them. they also need shoes and they need their exam fees paid.
The children are so proud to have uniform and shoes - bear in mind that for many it is their only set of clothes, so they wear it constantly.The parents and grandparents of children in the Project reported that the children were no longer embarrassed to go to school, now they have their uniforms. Great that our giving gives dignity to the children in Serenje.

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story:  Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!   Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone! Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know
