‘Where there seems to be no way…….

‘Where there seems to be no way…….

‘Where there seems to be no way……..You make it possible.’ A line from a worship song. And, in 11 years of being a Christian, and 5 years of working in Uganda……the truth. I have lost count of the number of times that I can’t see…

A gift from the very poor…….humbled

Let me be clear. I don’t do what I do here in Africa for recognition, reward, gratitude, or position. I do it because I believe that it is what Jesus wants me to do. What a God that hates poverty and injustice demands that I…

Supported, encouraged and grateful…………….

I used to think of myself as a ‘loner’ Christian – me and Jesus against the world. I have since discovered that being a loner can be….well….. a little….er……lonely? Particularly when you are living in a completely different culture, trying to learn to speak a…

Beautiful location…………difficult reality……….

Of all the places that God might have asked me to be His hands and feet in the construction and operation of medical facilities……….I don’t suppose that there are many that are more breath-taking than Kigazi. On days like the one that you can see…

Healing – in Jesus’ name……
