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"!

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…

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…

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…
