Ten years old…………..

It is the longest love affair of my life. It is the best relationship of my life. Nothing compares to it – past, present or future. It has a permanence to it that no other relationship could ever have. It is a central part of…

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…

Our God……….who never fails

Hildah and I are in Kampala returning Becky Wilson to the UK (!), visiting Richard in hospital…..and doing the dull stuff like immigration. It’s always very busy and very tiring but we have been carried along on a wave of euphoria for all that God…

Pain, judgement, hatred………………….and healing

Friday was a good day. But hard. If your idea of hell is seeing kids screaming with pain then Friday at the J1010 House was one to avoid. Having completed phase one of the house build for the struggling, flea-infested, malnourished family in Kahama, we…

Scars, cars, CORSU and God’s guidance and blessing

The ambulance got to Kampala an hour quicker than I did. I am (in)famous for my driving style and my ability to do the Kabale-Kampala journey more quickly than anyone else. Even though the other patient that I took to Kampala yesterday was accompanied by…

Kampala…………..yet again for me – and a first visit for Richard

Sometimes I can’t even remember what I’ve done in a day. And then when I write it all down I genuinely don’t know how I did it. God’s power and energy in a jar of VERY lumpy clay! Today I have, amongst many other things,…
