Small acts of great kindness…..

Small acts of great kindness…..

Mother Teresa said, ‘Not everyone can do great acts. But everyone can do small acts of great kindness.’ I would hazard a guess that, should anyone notice when I pop my clogs, they will be tempted to point at the medical centre, or the hospital…

End of another term….more reasons to praise God!

End of another term….more reasons to praise God!

Ach this is hard! In 10 days time I will be leaving Uganda for a few months – and I am reminded every day of how much I love the work that we are doing here. Which will continue unabated in my absence but which…

‘Only in returning to me…..’

‘Only in returning to me…..’

From Isaiah 30:15 – ‘Only by returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength.’ Two weeks ago (or was it three?) I wrote about the issues facing J10:10, about the choices that I had to…

Home to Uganda in 48 hours……….

After an amazing, joyful, blessed and brilliant two weeks in Europe with my wife……we will be travelling home to Uganda in 48 hours time. As usual…….I can’t wait. Because in the broadest sense the work that J10:10 does in Uganda is health, education, poverty alleviation…

Undeserving………..

The past week has made me feel SO grateful. And made me remember how utterly undeserving I am of all that God has given me. To cut a very long story short…….my gorgeous wife and I have been in Italy attending my youngest sister Catherine’s…
