‘Parting is such sweet sorrow………’

……wrote Shakespeare. Not sure about that. Parting from my wife and our work here in Uganda (even though it’s only for 10 days) is only made tolerable by the fact that I will be back here in a week and a half. Otherwise there would…

Vulnerable, out-of-control, at God’s mercy……………

‘Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger.’ Saint Basil It is true to say that a large part of me wants to curse the rain this morning. It’s harvest…

The prayer of Jabez……

So many reasons to thank you Lord…………..

More than 24 hours awake and travelling can’t diminish the joy of being back where I belong. In worldly terms the opulence of Puerto Banus, Spain can’t compare to the dirt, poverty and need of Kabale, Uganda. But I’d rather be back here in Uganda…

A long way from home…….

Marbella is probably only about 3,000 miles from Uganda. But it might as well be another planet. As is usual on trips to Europe I feel disoriented – it’s almost like an out of body experience! There is always electricity, always running water, the shops…
