Thank you………….

I am happy. Not ecstatically and temporarily happy. Not victoriously, aggressively, arrogantly happy – just happy. I have finally got to a place where I am not worrying about tomorrow…………. Because I have finally got to a place where I trust God with my life…

You keep on giving and you never let go………….

After yesterday’s day at hospital……today was very, very different. I spent the day in the Passion for Jesus orchards with the team from the J10:10 House – harvesting potatoes. We’d planted potatoes three months ago as a cover crop to help control weeds and to…

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…

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,…

And you provide……

But God…

But God…

The little girl that you see on the right of this picture was abandoned at birth in the forest. For good measure the one who left her there tried to ensure she didn’t suffer by cutting Sandrah’s throat. That was four years ago. The little…

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

I have always assumed that my breathtakingly beautiful wife Hildah is as blind as a bat. Why else would she have agreed to spend a lifetime with me? But as I walked across the room yesterday morning, from a good ten feet away, she shouted,…
