Teenage Girls Welcome at Real!

Thank you for praying for Real....wow we're in the final week now, can't wait for Friday!

Sue and I loved meeting lots of women at Kerith on Sunday (did you like the daisies?) 
- really great to see lots more names added to the list! We're now over 300, and believing God for many more to book in this week.
It was so encouraging to hear of people booking friends in; of a teenage son buying a ticket for his mum; of a mum buying a ticket for her daughter.

Is there someone else you could invite, and perhaps pay for?
I'm particularly thinking of the teenage girls.
Do you have a teenage daughter, niece, friend or neighbour? Is there a girl in the Church you could pay for? Or could you pay for a sponsored place?

Teenage girls: if you want to come,and are planning to pay for yourself and you don't have the finances, then please come and see Debbie at reception, me or Sue and we will offer you a special discount rate of "whatever you can afford!!" We just really want you to be there.

Thank you fall or praying...it works!
Let's keep going this week.

My friend Karen write me a really encouraging email with thoughts and prayers for Real.
Would you join us today in praying Karen's prayer for Real?
"Today I am praying that in this last week there will be incredible harmony and peace for you and all your team.  I am praying for strength, both spiritual and physical, for you, Liz and Rachel and I am praying that the Holy Spirit will move in the lives of all the women thinking about coming and encourage them to register.  I am praying that right up to the moment the doors close on Saturday night we will keep Jesus at the centre of everything. Amen"

Specifically today:
Please pray for our Albanian friends, Donika, Rudina and Ilir, who all have important visa application appointments today. They had initially been refused visas to travel to the UK for the Real Conference, so have submitted more paperwork and will find out today if they are successful - please pray t5hat they will still be able to come and join us!

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…

Clare's Macedonia reflections

You'll remember that in May I went to Macedonia? 
I took a team of wonderful Kerith women, and together we supported Marija Vuletic as she led the Vredna Conference in Skopje (the capital city) Macedonia. It was such a rich time (challenging too at times!) we gave, but we also received so much. It was a real privilege to stand alongside these wonderful women - our sisters in Christ.

Here are Clare's reflections of our time together.

Spending time with the women in Macedonia spoke to me so much about our world-wide family in faith. God really is bringing people from every people group into relationship with Him! We were joined by women from Serbia and the Roma community. I think joy in hardship sums up what many of the women are experiencing right now. Some have only been believers for a very short time, but their joy in belonging to Jesus and being on a journey with Him was so clear. I spent time talking to some of the youngest women at the conference. A few of them feel the strugg…
