Faith, Hope, Love, Prayers, Hard Work and Money!

Here's the latest on the building of the Girls Dormitory in Serenje - wonderful to see the progress being made isn't it?

It's so inspiring to see the pictures and to be reminded of all the different people that have been part of building the dormitory. From the builder Jack who says it's a privilege to build such an impressive building (49 metres long!) to all the people who have given money - both corporately and individually, from those inside our community and from other local individuals and organisations. So much wonderful variety! And all for people that we won't meet and don't know, but who we truly believe are our sisters and brothers in Christ.

The giving, praying and hard work goes on, as the dormitory gets built and furnished, ready for the 100 teenage girls to move in. It's so easy to be a part of it all : You can give to the dormitory here

And this is one of the earliest photos - when the Dormitory was only a set of plans and a big dream and prayer in the hearts of the Serenje pastors!

 

The Dormitory is a development out of the original project, and just one aspect of how we have linked with the churches in Serenje, Zambia over the last five years. Responding to the impact of HIV and AIDs, we've been working together with the pastors and local community there to support children in education, families, farmers and church and community leaders.

People are still doing wonderful things, raising money and getting involved. In fact, eight year old Tehya is cycling 4.5 miles round Virginia Water today, raising money for the children in Serenje. It's much easier to donate than to get on your bike and cycle! You can give towards her total here https://www.justgiving.com/Tehya-Allen.

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

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 …
