Sunday is  the first day of the week and that usually starts really well going to church and meeting friends. Then of course there is the nice Sunday roast, the sleepy afternoon and of course my knitting. So when Monday comes around it is the next day after a good one with lots of potential and opportunities. I like the fact that the week lies before like snow with no footprints in it. Sure there are things that need to be done, schedules to keep, meetings to attend, e-mails to answer and send; but all in all it is quite exciting as none of us know what will happen. I like to think about positive things and not worry about what might or might not happen that may cause stress or upset. Each day is an opportunity to love and serve a living God and for that reason I like Mondays, or any day really regardless of what name has been given to it.

Today I was at the OM Lifehope training center, a really buzzing place. It was nice to sit working and hear lots of chatter around the place, filled with staff, students, children and visitors. Check it out

One person I met there whom although pleased to see wasn’t really happy to see was Mpumi one of the European transit team leaders. He is from South Africa and worked with the Lifehope team before leading the transit team. He has a Shengen visa that allowed him to transit around Europe. but through circumstances it wasn’t for long enough. He is back in the UK to apply for an extension and hopes to rejoin the team in Austria on the 25th.

Please pray for this visa to be granted and for the team who are busy ministering with OM Austria team at present. Hopefully I will be able to be with both teams at the end of their transit challenge. You can can check up on what the two transit teams are doing on the following blogs

Today has been a good lovely Monday and I am thankful.


This morning I am writing the European Training Report. This will be given at the European Leaders Meetings in Moldova in November. I am amazed at how much happens in a year.

Please pray that it will be well written, clear and concise, and be well received.

I am also working from my friend Ann’s house in West Bromwich near Birmingham as she is recovering from Surgery. It has been a good time for me in away as I have felt needed. Pray that she will continue to recover well and not over do it. It has also been a good time to re-connect with people I have known for over 20 years (some 30). My god-daughter is also expecting her first baby in a few weeks and it was lovely to be able to attend her baby shower.



This is all very new to me. I tried to blog once before but didn’t get very far so I am going to try again. In my blog you will ‘eventually’ be able to follow me as I work for the Lord with OM around Europe, and occasionally beyond.

If you read this and you have any ideas or questions or suggestions please leave comments – I think that is how it works 🙂

I will try and find someone to help me and make it interesting. I would like to be able to have it all nicely coloured with pictures and stuff but please be patient with me. A new learning curve looms.
