Au revoir…………trusting God

To quote Frank Sinatra….’And so, the end is near’. After nearly 4 years of flitting between the UK and Uganda, and after the last two long weeks away from my wife, our J1010 children and the projects that we are carrying out, managing or planning……..I…

6 mad months…..1 faithful God……

I will soon be on a plane heading back to the UK for a very brief visit. It has been nearly 6 months since I left Europe and it has been frantically busy. I have achieved and completed a fraction of the things that I wanted…

‘And God blessed……

‘And God blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part’ I’m 45 today. With both my parents dying at 65 years old and a life that has included alcoholism, drugs, tobacco, a major road accident and six weeks in a coma……..one would…

‘Work as if it all depends on you……

‘Work as if it all depends on you……

…..pray as if it all depends on God’ (Either Ignatius of Loyola or Saint Augustine…….I think!) Which it does. As I have said before Passion for Jesus is a brilliant vision and I believe that it is God-given. If I’m wrong then I personally will…

If you’re not under attack……….

If you’re not under attack……….

………….You’re in the WRONG place. A strange, exhausting and difficult couple of days. As expected. What we are doing here in Uganda at the moment feels SO God-directed, SO Jesus-centred and SO close to delivering everything that we believe God wants……..that if we weren’t experiencing…

Of prayer, passion fruit, God’s gifts and ‘jiggers’……

J1010: our vision for life – in ALL its fullness

J1010: our vision for life – in ALL its fullness

There’s a danger in a lot of the Christian vision-planning (navel-gazing) that goes on. ‘What does God want from me? What is God’s plan for my life? What is my calling? What is my ministry?’ The answer to all of those questions for all of…

Work as if it all depends on you…………..

…………….pray as if it all depends on God. Which it does actually. Although God does love a try-er! I’m very aware that apart from God……J1010 can do nothing. Watching the vision for J1010 develop and seeing God provide for all that we have done and…

Break our hearts for what breaks yours…………………

Break our hearts for what breaks yours…………………

What does God want from me? And can I do it? No, really, can I do it? Spiritually, physically, emotionally, practically, financially and permanently………can I do it? It has been a time of prayer, worry (I know – I’m crap), planning and petition. But now I…
