A few good links today:

First, Howard and Elizabeth have completed their mammoth cycle ride from Nairobi and have arrived in Serenje! Their latest tweet said that they had a Serenje.police escort plus 10 pastors and a photographer accompanying them for the last 20 miles. Then an interview with the press and a procession with the District Commissioner to the hospital. Brilliant news - and it's not too late to sponsor their efforts to raise the money to build an operating theatre. Can't wait to see the photos of the final procession into Serenje!

You know that I love Shauna Niequist's writings, so I really enjoy following her blog. This week she talked about "enneagrams"- all about personality types. Fascinating stuff - and more here

I loved this post from the "One Pink Toothbrush" blog - so true.

And this post from Molly Piper may well help out on the domestic front - so good to share our time-saving and sanity-maintaining ideas, perhaps especially for those with small children! If I'm organised I try to cook double quantities and feeze some. I also often freeze a "meal for 1" out of a family meal for those frequent occurances in our house when a teenager has 20 minutes from coming in til going out again!

Simon's written about the Volunteer event at the 7pm meeting tomorrow - it's going to be a fun evening featuring awards and celebrating the amazing volunteers that make Kerith work. So please come to your usual meeting and come back in the evening - doughnuts too! Oh yes, and someone very close to me will be wearing a suit! Hopefully see you there.

Can't wait for all that's ahead tomorrow at Kerith. Now for a Fun family evening of squashing altogether on the sofa whilst we watch "Take me out"!

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 for myself what had …

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here.

I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!) 
Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases.



1 Contact lense solution
I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight.

2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary
This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can't recommend i…

Paula's Encouragement

I love a podcast!
Podcasts get me through situations where time might drag, or perhaps I've got some time to myself - I'm think a bike work-out at the Gym; a long car journey; or food for my mind and soul whilst I'm cooking.

I've just got back from holiday, and having missed a couple of Sundays, I have caught up with Kerith podcasts, listening to three outstanding preaches from Ben Pocock and Ben Oliver in Bracknell; and Heather Pocock in Sandhurst - I found myself wanting to join in with a few loud "amens" this morning at the gym!

What about you? Let me know when and where do you listen to podcasts?

Our guest contributor today is the wonderful Paula Ridgway - with her large heart , great enthusiasm and infectious faith, she is such a huge blessing to many at Kerith. 
Over to Paula for her encouragement to simply gather a few friends, to listen to a podcast together and then talk about it and see what God is saying. 

"Podcasts are great if one misses out on a …
