Undeserving………..

The past week has made me feel SO grateful. And made me remember how utterly undeserving I am of all that God has given me. To cut a very long story short…….my gorgeous wife and I have been in Italy attending my youngest sister Catherine’s…

Back to school for our kids – back to Jesus for others

The thing with Uganda (or any developing nation)? You veer from joy to sorrow, from high to low, from hope to despair……so bloody quickly. On Saturday lunchtime I had the absolute joy and delight of taking the eleven most vulnerable children that we care for…

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…

‘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.      …
