Skype Chats

We had a couple of great skype chats last week. Firstly we all spoke to our eldest son, who's at University. He's great and sends lots of little texts through the week (my favourite ones being pictures of what he's eating for tea!). However, the skype chat's the best because we all crowd round the little screen together and we get to see him as well as hear him. It's fun to catch up and tell all the news. He also likes to try and make the dog bark from a distance!

The second skype chat was with Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam. They are living in Lusaka, Zambia for a year. It was fantastic to chat, and to take a look around their home at the same time seeing that they looked so well and happy.

Take a look at their blog to find out what they'll be doing in Zambia, and to follow their adventure. They are such a lovely Kerith family, and we're really proud of all they are doing , together with their young daughters.

Please would you take a moment to pray for them?
Here are their requests:
- Girls settling into nursery - particularly Amba who is finding it harder.
- Continued healing for Han's broken toe
- Work permit completion for Han (mine is now through)
- Wisdom and understanding around Zambian culture and law in connection with area of work which is all about Child safeguarding and development - connections with the right people in government ministries and relevant NGO's

(Oh yes, and they miss marmite!)

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 …
