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

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

Clare's Macedonia reflections

You'll remember that in Ma y 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
