WOW!

I wish that you all could see what I saw, and hear what I heard at last nights rehearsal for REAL!

Wow!

The worship...Performance songs and dances...Drama...Music...Lights...Sound..and Stage - it's looking and sounding beautiful, and really exciting! Not long now and we'll all experience it for real :)

I wonder whether there are girls in your world who aren't part of Kerith, perhaps don't share your faith? The evenings at REAL would be a great "taster" for them. I knew it already, and I have faith in the speakers and in what we'll all be bringing, but to actually see the fantastic standard of all the creative elements prompted a longing in my heart to bring more friends along to "taste and see".

As I mentioned in my last blog, we've released tickets for the evening sessions. They are £5 at the special registration point at Kerith on the night. Friday night the conference kicks off, worship,loads of creative elements, a talk from me, and I'll be interviewed along with Kim and Abs. Saturday night is the Celebration of the conference, and so again fab creativity, music and we'll hear from Kim again. So, there's nothing like a bit of a deadline! Don't say "no" for your friends - this could be just what they need! Lets get inviting!

As I write this, Kim is on a plane about to take off on here way to us. Let's pray for her, for the friends she is binging (Dolce and Susan) and for Abs (and her friend Joanna). And lets not forget ourselves, and our own "journey" over these next few days,as we look forward to REAL. As well as making all the practical arrangements, let's pray and keep close to Jesus, preparing our hearts for all that He will whisper to us.

Women who have been praying for the conference, for the team and for you have such a sense of expectancy that God will be very present and active at REAL. My prayer is that we all arrive at REAL ready, expectant, open to hearing God's heart .

Do whatever it takes!

Bless you - can't wait for us all to be together very soon x

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…
