Going on!

I know they say that time passes more quickly as you get older but this is ridiculous. It seems equally ridiculous to consider that I have been able to get so much done in the year so far. It has been a very varied year with many new challenges in addition to the old ones. So where am I going?

It came as a shock when realisation dawned that in less than two years I will qualify for my seniors travel pass! It has caused me to re-assess how I travel in the future. Long trips are beginning to take their toll and I am working a new strategy which I hope will enable me to achieve as much but also be home a little more. Until the end of 2006 my plan is to break time into 2 month sections and then travel for a maximum of 3 weeks in any two month period.

This means that I will be in the UK more and able to take a greater part in my church’s life, write more, follow the call into intercession and work a little to keep finances flowing.

Africa in 2005

I will probably have spent less time in Africa this year than in any of the last ten years. I was pleased to be able to stay with the Chaplin family again when in Nairobi. They have been such a blessing. Now they are based in the UK I will miss them very much. Nairobi will not be the same. Two months in February and March was taken mainly with teaching seminars around Kenya. Without Simon Changorok, who died last year, the work in Pokot and Turkana came to a stop. I trust that from the seed sown over the years there will be much fruit.

The highlight of the coming trip is the privilege to preach the Gospel on Christmas Eve at a National Night of Prayer in the National stadium in Nairobi, Kenya. I do not have full details but my last update was that over 50 major denominations are supporting the event and that it will be broadcast nationally. On New Years Eve there is a similar National Night of Prayer in Dar es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania, and again, although details are sketchy I have been asked to speak.

Although I have not been in Africa so much this year, I have been privileged to help a pastor in war torn Bujumbura in Burundi and another in Eldoret, Kenya. My links with the Congolese refugees has also been strengthened by enabling Pastor Rukukuye to visit Bukavu in Congo. As soon as the war lessens we plan to take seminars and the Gospel to Bukavu and Uvira. Pray that these opportunities are soon realised.

Election Fever!

Having been once again accepted as a parliamentary candidate for UKIP, April found me caught up with another election campaign. Tramping the streets and attending hustings meetings ended in a disappointing result. A minor personality stood in the constituency on a similar ticket and took a large part of the vote that would probably have come to me. Now that UKIP is fairly well established, this will be my last election campaign – it takes its toll on my poor old bones!

Grand Sabbatical

What a wonderful world we live in. After 17 years ‘on the road’ it seems strange to take a sabbatical rest on the road. However, in a 26 foot camper van in the Grand Canyon area of America the road suddenly appeared the best place to be. As the Canyon first comes into sight it is breath-taking! I think I repeated the word ‘Wow!” continually as vista after vista unfolded. The purpose of the sabbatical was to get closer to God. With the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, The Petrified Forest and many other wonders of HIS world it was not difficult to find Him in such beauty.
