The Days and Weeks are Flying By!

I always get a bit fuzzy around the end of the month, and not great at looking ahead and turning the diary pages. So its quite a shock to realise that its May 1st this Wednesday!
May still seems so very far away!

So I guess its about time that I looked ahead and calculated how many weeks and days we have until REAL on 12/13 July!
We are planning, preparing and praying for Kerith's women's conference - so that in every session, and in all your time spent with us, you are blessed, encouraged and challenged by God - and you experience His love for you!

This week I've been
Sampling possible food treats that we will serve to you (its a tough job...!)
plus also writing letters of invitation to lots of other local Churches.
I've been communicating with Kim and Abs, the other speakers
and I've talked about tech sheets, timings, surprises, stories, drama, worship, creative openers...all different aspects of REAL.
Of course, nothing would actually happen if I was doing it all on my own!
We have a great team of fantastic people - gifted, generous and totally committed to you ladies, and to REAL - I'm so grateful to work in such an amazing Kerith team!

One new thing we are planning is a Shopping area.
Yes ladies, we are going to have an opportunity to browse and shop at REAL this year!
There will be affordable home crafted items, to resource and bless you, or perhaps bless others as gifts.
We're excited about making this another lovely aspect of REAL.

For all you creative women, whilst you are at the conference, perhaps you'd also like to have a table (or share one with a friend) selling your own home craft goods?
If that's something you'd be interested in , and you'd like some more information, then please contact Lorraine Hart, who is coordinating the shopping area.

Two final requests
- please sign up and commit to being with us at REAL
- please pray for us - and for all the preparations - that we'd be lead by the Holy Spirit to communicate God's heart for us all, over our time together in July ( oh yes, and its 10 weeks, 4 days away!)

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 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 slip over on the back door 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…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
