I Just Did Something For The First Time!

I Just did something for the First Time!
I took part in a "Virtual Community Group" of Pastors' wives and women leaders around Europe. We were all sat in our homes in front of our computers with headphones and webcams. Katie in Athens, Greece; Laurie in Monmouth,Wales; Melissa soon to be in Greece, but presently in Seattle USA; and Rachel in Florida, hoping soon to be in Ireland! It was FUN! Of course there were the small time delays, but that was ok as we at first all talked at once, and then all smiled together and paused! So we are going to be "meeting" monthly to encourage and support one another in our various lives and roles. In the meantime, we'll get to know one another through facebook and blogs and we'll pray for one another. Great to be able to support eachother like this - and great to see what God is doing all over the world. I take my hat off to these girls, who are pioneering in new countries and cultures - all for God's kingdom.

My current "on repeat" song whilst I'm working at the computer is "Mercy" - love love love it! We sang it at Word and Worship, and also used it last Sunday in the baptism video .
Enjoy x

So good to hear you're embarking on this journey of encouragement Catrina. I know you will be a blessing to the other girls and hope and pray that they continue to encourage and build you up in all you do.
What a wonder the 21st century is with all this technology to hand. How blessed we are to be able to communicate in so many different ways

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 …
