Lean forward and think of Jesus…….

Wednesdays are now the day that we visit Kahama – and the family that through us, in conjunction with St Mary’s Church Stebbing and Kigezi Baptist Church, God is trying to lift out of poverty, unemployment, malnourishment, ill-health and despair. There was an old saying about…

Of painting, harvesting and posho…………..

……….and God’s amazing goodness. This Lord of mine, this Jesus, never, ever fails me. His plan for my life is SO VERY DIFFERENT from my plan for my life!! And so, so, so, so, so, so much better. Albeit very busy, totally frantic, ridiculously varied…

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…

Easter and new life…………..

Joy………….

It hasn’t been the most restful or spiritual run-up to Easter. But it has been a pretty joyful day. It started with a dash to the Passion4Africa orchards to collect a harvest, then to the Central Market to sell the 100kgs of passion fruit, and…

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,…

God’s plan………

………our hands and feet. As I watch God’s plan for J10:10’s funding and work coming together I am awed. How did I end up a farmer?! I think it was St. Augustine who said – Without God we cannot. Without us God will not. We will…

Joy, frustration, hope, determination……………..

Thirty-three years. Approximately. That is how long a perfect God had to suffer we imperfect, maddening people around Him physically. And He appears to have done so without ever becoming anywhere near as irritated and frustrated as I do………..help me Lord Jesus. Working here in…
