A very quick blog that asks for your help. Not money, not much time and not terribly difficult. ……………one of J1010’s supporters has asked for our prayers. His great nephew (his sister’s 18 month old grandson) has just been diagnosed with leukaemia. He is in a…

The best relationship of my life…………..happy anniversary Lord Jesus

The best relationship of my life…………..happy anniversary Lord Jesus

It is nine years ago today that I made the very unlikely (for me) decision to follow Jesus. But it wasn’t just a passive decision – I begged God to come into my life and fill me with Himself. And He did, and I do…

How do you repay God?

How do you repay God?

The answer is……..you don’t. You can’t so there’s no point in trying. Jesus died instead of me. It’s not a credit card, loan or mortgage. I was obviously having a ‘wow’ moment the other day. I was thinking in astonishment of all that God has done…

30 minutes of your time – you won’t regret it

30 minutes of your time – you won’t regret it

Not TERRIBLY manly…………..crying as you drive up the motorway. The reason? This radio programme – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ppp2v . Please have a listen.

Father me……………

Father me……………

  I loved my Dad. In a few weeks time he will have been dead for ten years. And I can’t wait to see him again. He will be VERY surprised by the direction my life has taken, by the man that I now am,…

NEARLY there…………….

  I remember vividly driving to Kigazi, the willage where we work at the top of the mountain, and seeing the exterior of the nursery fully painted  for the first time. I remember so clearly just thanking God for what he had done – and…

I hate religion………..

I hate religion………..

I have always hated religion. I do hate religion. I will always hate religion. Religion, for me, is meaningless ritual, man’s church not God’s church, hierarchy in an organisation whose leader said we must all be servants and all the nonsense that man adds to…
