Glynne's Story

Last month a team of us from Kerith went to Tirana, Albania for a women's conference. Called UNIKE,and now in its 4th year, it's led by our friend Miranda Ajeti. God birthed UNIKE through REAL! Miranda was visiting the UK for REAL one year, and heard the Interviewer ask me what my dream was? I answered "to speak in another country", Ann Bothamley nudged Miranda and so a plan was hatched! Miranda is a fantastic leader, and a good friend. We share our lives and our prayer requests via monthly Skype chats :)

Iris, Glynne and I went to support, pray for and contribute to the conference - me through preaching, and the ladies through prayer and sharing testimonies. We had a wonderful time together, this being Iris' 4th time, and Glynne's 3rd, so they were really reconnecting with friends - and that involved many hugs, kisses and warm embraces! 

Every week since last year's trip, Iris and Glynne have been faithfully meeting to pray. God has really touched their hearts for Albania and Albanian women. I thank God for Iris and Glynne, both faithful friends and tenacious prayer-warriors. 

You may remember that I also took a team of women to minister at a conference in Macedonia. It was such a privilege to spend time in these two Balkan countries. In both cases, God really spoke to the women, and He moved powerfully. He really spoke to us too, and stretched our faith and expectations.

We'll be sharing some more stories here on my blog over the next few weeks.

First up, here are some of Glynne's reflections:
I was impressed to see how much the women have changed by God moving in their lives, even taking authority in praying for each other rather than waiting for us to pray. 

A huge Highlight for me was feeling the Holy Spirit moving powerfully in the elderly women as much as the young girls/ladies in worship,  such a difference.  
The best thing for me was being able to be with them to see that change and to recognise that I am changed by them.

I am so grateful to be able to go to Albania with you, be a part of your cheer leaders and vintage squad, Glynne xxx

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story:  Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!   Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone! Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here. I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!)  Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases. 1 Contact lense solution I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight. 2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can

Meeting my Hero

Yesterday, I met one of my heroes! Bobbie Houston of Hillsong is a beautiful woman! I love her teachings, her godly wisdom, her self deprecating humour. I love the way she leads the whole Colour conference and Sisterhood movement. I listen to her podcasts and read her articles and books. Here at the Global Leadership Summit in Willow Creek,Chicago, her husband Brian gave the most extraordinary, vulnerable and honest responses to Bill Hybel's interview ( notes here) He was signing books at the end of the break and as I turned a corner, there she was! Not being mobbed by fans, but just chatting with a couple of people. Not sure if many of you realise this, but I'm actually an introvert, and quite shy. No really, I am! There's no way I would confidently walk up to someone I admire and begin a conversation! So I walked away. But as I was walking, I thought about how much I'd regret not being brave enough to say Hi..or to thank her for her
