#COVID-19UGANDA day 14: collateral damage, collateral grace, deepened not dim...
Saturday, April 4, 2020

This is how our days go : pushing curfew limits for a bit of exercise in the morning, coffee, Bible, prayer, urgent texts and emails that accumulate from other time zones, perhaps a knock at the door, a question or crisis. Into the car by 8 for the 8 mile drive to the hospital, hoping not to be s... .. read more..

Feeling the hole (Adoption Update)
Tuesday, March 31, 2020

I was up past 2 am last night unable to sleep.

It was heart breaking to think what a difficult life this little 6 month old has had so ... .. read more..

Dear Friends, What a strange month this has been in so many different ways!  Who could have imagined just one month ago what the world would be like today?  At times like this the only thing we can do is trust in our God.  Two verses have encouraged me today: Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV, emphasis mine) ... .. read more..

Robber Or Responsible
Saturday, March 28, 2020

You know you're living in unusual times when  you walk in to your local cornershop wearing a mask and rather than being chased out as a potential robber you're welcomed in for being a responsible citizen. Given how tight the restrictions are for our lockdown we've had to be a bit creative in... .. read more..

#COVID-19UGANDA day 8; on Fear and Charms and Ultimate questions
Sunday, March 29, 2020

You know the "pan" is in pandemic when you find a diagram of the coronavirus on the wall of a home in Bundibugyo. I was intrigued by the personification of those eyes; the medical detail of the protein spikes; the smear of mud on mud to make it adhere. The first sign made me assume that someone w... .. read more..

Pastors in a Pandemic
Saturday, April 4, 2020

If you've ever wondered why the ministry is called Sowers4 Pastors instead of Sowers4 SomethingElse , the current state of affairs in Honduras sums up the answer perfectly.

#COVID-19UGANDA; end of week one, the paradox of weeping and truth
Saturday, March 28, 2020

It is Saturday, and the weaver birds quarrel and chatter as they bustle about their nest colony in the royal palms outside the front door. Scott is sitting outside on our patio with a policeman. Because even though we don't have COVID-19 death yet, we still have death. We are not yet on lockdown ... .. read more..

Back To School.... Sort Of
Tuesday, March 31, 2020

We have always been very clear that we would not home school whilst serving overseas. It's a common choice for many that do serve overseas but we've seen too many stressed and frazzled mothers (let's be honest it's always mum who does it!) to believe it's a good thing. Sadly however, like much of... .. read more..

Today saw the inaugural Bizweni ParkRun under a magnificent clear blue South African sky. The crowds (two dogs) were full of excitement and expectation for this new event.
