God’s plan………..

God’s plan………..

I am as overjoyed as ever to be back in Uganda, back with my wife, and back to work: both in the passion fruit orchards/business and the health, education and sanitation work that we do here in Uganda. We got our export licence – Europe…

‘Arm-less?! (NOT for the squeamish)

‘Arm-less?! (NOT for the squeamish)

My life at the moment would make a film. Not, unhappily, ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’. Or even ‘Shotgun Preacher.’ More ‘Dumb and Dumber’. Or ‘One flew over the cuckoo’s nest.’ Or even, ‘The Thing’……as you can see from the photos below.      …

Another step forward for precious Michelle…….

Another step forward for precious Michelle…….

A very quick trip to Kampala this week – and another one next week. An 880km round trip on roads of mind-bogglingly variable quality with drivers of frighteningly low competence. And that’s not just me. The reason for the trip? Another instalment in the absolutely joyful…

STILL I will praise you Lord!

In the Passion4Africa orchards…………our harvest numbers have fallen off a cliff. From 4,000 kilos in five days a fortnight ago to a maximum of 1,500 this week. If we’re lucky. And this in the run-up to Christmas when our customers are screaming out for fruit…

Onwards – and looking upwards

Onwards – and looking upwards

It’s that time of year when I spend most of my time praying about the next twelve months. Another school year successfully completed, more than 250 children about to go up to a new class, and nearly 70 employees across J10:10 and passion4africa. Someone has…

Back home – to Hildah, Michelle and Passion4Africa…….

And what a trio they are! I have said before that true happiness only comes from being in the place that God created you to be. And I have said before that, for me, that place is Uganda. And specifically Kabale, Kigazi and Bigungiro. Although this…

Tired, grateful……and still at liberty. Just.

I miss my wife. I also miss Uganda and all that we do there. I’m in the UK for a frantic week of………..business meetings; catching up with friends, family and children; collecting money owed to me; gratefully receiving donations; transporting wonderful Michelle’s new wheelchair back to…
