Jesus heals……today

It has been a long day – but a good one. I have been watching Jesus heal. And feed. And love. And change lives. At 8am I turned up at the house that we have built for a very poor family in Kahama, near Kabale…

Joy………….

It hasn’t been the most restful or spiritual run-up to Easter. But it has been a pretty joyful day. It started with a dash to the Passion4Africa orchards to collect a harvest, then to the Central Market to sell the 100kgs of passion fruit, and…

Coaching, praise, prayer and worship…………..

Nothing worth doing in life is easy. In fact it’s nearly always difficult, frustrating, maddening and exhausting. The family that we have re-housed in Kahama is no different. Because they need help, monitoring, encouragement and direction I have now committed to going to see them,…

The genius of God…………

You know………it’s actually going to work. God’s plan for my life. I am so appalled at my lack of faith and trust. And, sadly, so amazed at God’s success! I am one of those competent Christians who believes that God is all powerful – and…

Snakebites – and not a drop of cider to be seen

‘Volunteering in Africa’ – sounds glamorous huh? It’s been an interesting week in Uganda for Becky Wilson – the paediatric nurse from London who is spending three weeks with us. Her patients include bed sores that defy description, assisting at a caesarean section and helping…
