Today a son is born to you (two actually!)

Today a son is born to you (two actually!)

  I’m so busy earning money to pay for the completion of the ‘Hospital in the Hills’ that I sometimes feel SO remote from what’s actually happening on the ground. But I received a message from Arkaline, J1010’s Ugandan Director, yesterday that reminded me what…

Plastered!

                It’s approaching the weekend – 9 years ago the only form of ‘plastered’ that would have brought me any joy would have been alcohol-induced. Oh how different life is now! I’m in the UK for another few…

Reasons to be cheerful – Part Two (2012)

Reasons to be cheerful – Part Two (2012)

I have just arrived back in the UK for a four week dash to collect the cash that I have earned to fund God’s work through J10:10 (and earn some more). It’s another four weeks (hopefully the last) apart from my beloved wife Hildah but…
