Return to France

I am returning to Marseille for 6 weeks more language study from 11th April to 27th June.

I spent 3 months last year in language school in Marseille.  In spite of the bin-men striking, I settled well into the city, finding tons of friends, a welcoming church and a friendly Frisbee team!

This time I am hoping to shadow some doctors to improve my French for working.  I would really value prayers, as the more I know, the harder it is to discipline myself to improve.

If you are in south France, do visit and I will have internet access, so keep in touch!

Flights booked for Chad

This week my flights are being booked for a departure in the summer.

God’s timing is perfect!


Greetings from ‘on-the-road’, which has it’s moments of being encouraging, puzzling and exhausting.

The encouragements are mostly to do with meeting people  – groups and individuals – who pray for me.  Friends, relatives and churches have shown an interest in hearing about the work in Chad and in praying for me as I prepare.  People have fed me, given me accommodation, asked questions, helped me prepare me house for letting, kept me company and supported me.  Since my return from France in December, I’ve been very well supported and am very grateful to everyone for this.

The puzzling bits are with timing.  My timing is different from God’s but His timing is always best.  Waiting for His timing and knowing why is often puzzling.  Some answers come quicker than others.

The exhaustion is with all the travelling.  My belongings are scattered between many places and I never seem to have the things that I need where I am!  Travelling is good, but lacks routine.  I’m never the best to settle for routine, being very impromptu, but the constant lack of routine is exhausting.

I am very grateful to God for His timing in the preparation.  And very grateful to the friends and family that have supported me along the journey.  Preparation has been a long journey in itself.  But God’s timing is best.
