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

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…

Our Living Hope

Not sure what happens with my blog...or me writing my blog! Can't believe I've been away from it for almost two months. Oh well, no condemnation! Let's pick it up and start again :)
Yesterday was a great day in Church! I was so challenged and encouraged - I love Sundays and all the different ways God shows His love and who he is to us. Natalie Jones preached at both our morning meetings in Bracknell , she gave such a good message on generosity, be sure to catch it when the podcast comes on our website, but for now, watch a summary of Natalie's preach
At the 6pm meeting, we had Paul Manwaring sharing about culture : the 4 Gamechangers - again, a really challenging message to check out if you didn't get to hear it live.

I wore my HOPE earrings yesterday - sometimes I deliberately choose to wear them as a practical symbol that I am choosing HOPE - that I choose Jesus, I choose trust, I choose hope.
I'm so glad I did, as throughout the day I felt God speak to me about …
