Read on for Another Great Deal on REAL tickets!...

I'm so looking forward to seeing all the ladies at REAL this Friday and Saturday! Some of you booked your place at last year's conference, and have been anticipating REAL2012 for almost a year! Many of you booked along the way, some of you finally got round to it last weekend! Whatever category you fall in, I'm so glad that you made the decision to come and be part of REAL - setting aside that time to meet with friends and with God. We're preparing for you and we're praying for you - believe that God will meet you!

I wonder whether you've invited anyone else to come along with you?

You'd think I'd find it easy to invite people wouldn't you? What with standing on the platform and talking at the conference to hundreds?! Truth is, I don't find it that easy to personally invite others along, and I bet you don't either!
However, with just a couple of days to go now I wonder whether I could challenge you to invite?
Perhaps that means invite someone again?
Chase up someone who hasn't yet responded?

My particular burden is to bring women along who aren't yet part of our community. Perhaps they wouldn't call themselves believers?
Perhaps you chat at the school gate; or they're a colleague, or a neighbour or family member?
Perhaps you never even thought that it might be "ok" to invite them to REAL?!

I think REAL's a great place for them to come - after all, we stand for real women, with a real faith in a real God. The teaching is Bible based and practical. We hear women's stories. it's a really positive place, where your friend will be blessed.
I think REAL will be a "safe place that women can hear a dangerous message".

To help you invite your unchurched friends, why not offer to pay for them?
To help you and them, their ticket will cost only £15. These very special tickets are only available at Kerith reception anytime from now until Friday, and also on the door on Friday and Sarturday.
I hope that will make it manageable for us all to invite more women along.
Take a moment to just ask God who He'd have you invite, and then pray for the courage...and then do it!
Our friends are waiting to be invited.

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 all...so 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 ...to slip over on the back door mat....in 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…
Well last week had some highs and lows.

Highs included Simon's birthday and my cast coming off - hoorah!

I'm now officially walking - although it often looks like shuffling! Great to have 2 feet back in use - if only for planting firmly into the ground so that I can make the bed or get something out of a cupboard. It's a huge help to have my hands free when I go up and down stairs too. I'm of course being a good girl with the exercises. No idea what people mean when they say "don't do too much" - I join in if I feel ok and work out afterwards if it was really ok and good to stretch myself, or "Too Much"! Anyhow, it's good to be feeling more like myself again. Apparently It's still a slow process of building up strength and flexibility, so I need to keep on being patient!

The low was that our 12 year old labrador died - Nemo was a big character, and a huge presence in our home - he really was one of the family. We all said goodbye, we all th…
