What are you doing this hot Monday evening?

It's a very hot Monday evening, and I've just returned home, having spent an hour or so at the Kerith Centre - boy it was busy! Two Courses running (thanks for putting up with the REAL interruptions!) plus the Band and Tech team were rehearsing, and the creative girls were making and creating - it was full of life; and all for REAL, which is next week!!!!!

If only you too could have heard the worship *, seen our wonderful volunteer teams working hard, been part of the chat and the making - it was such a good, real and spiritual place to be, as women reminisced about past REALs, or how they came to be at Kerith, or shared stories as they worked.

The effort is all for you girls - to create a vibrant environment where you can relax and connect with your Father. Where you can feel at home, and looked after, expected and anticipated by us. Where you have no responsibilities and can freely give yourselves to worshipping the King of Kings. Where we come together as women who are believers - who believe not just in Jesus, but wholeheartedly believe Him.

Can't wait to spend REAL2017 with you - see you full of expectation on the evening of Friday 30/06/17! 
If you've not yet committed to buying your ticket, head over to our webiste, and whilst there why not buy one for a friend or purchase a sponsored ticket? God is good and we want to share that good news - we're believing for salvations and for many more women to join us.

* Worship at REAL is always a highlight - checkout the playlist on Spotify (REAL2017 beccahall17)

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…
