Being men who change the world

“All that is expected of Christian men by the church today is to invite the unchurched to a social event with other Christians – nobody really expects a man to share his faith with others.”
This year’s Northern Men’s Convention challenged Christian men to stand up and make a difference in their world, be that as a husband and father, as a Christian in the workplace or in the mission field. Yes, there was a strong missions focus this year.
I was there with OMNIvision to provide the Visuals for the event. Continue reading Being men who change the world

Big dance

The warm up for the summer of events this year was a dance competition in Carlisle. We have spent the last two months fully converting our broadcast vehicle from American 110v power to British 220v and this was the first field test. Previously we had used a big transformer. You can see the panels open in the photo where we needed to make some quick repairs. While there were a few teething issues – the truck performed its duty well, and it’s ready for action this summer.

A beautiful setting

Sometimes God has surprises in store. Last Thursday I travelled with one other OMNIvision volunteer to a corporate event for the National Trust. It was a simple event, looked to be rather dull, and whilst it didn’t conflict with our values – it wasn’t a Christian event but the wise leaders of OMNIvision know Continue reading A beautiful setting

Australia 2014

After much prayer and consideration, we have decided not to remain in the UK after March 2014. Whilst the challenges surrounding applying for a spousal visa for Chris started us thinking – ultimately we decided that we don’t want to (or feel led to) remain here long term. Whilst we may have hoped to stay until later in 2014 or even on into 2015 – it would seem the only way to do that would be to leave OM early and find secular work – something we’re fairly sure isn’t on God’s agenda for us.

Praying in the new year

In my life I have often celebrated New Years Eve with close friends and this year I was blessed to do the same – but differently. Ruth and I joined our good friend Paul and the Ingham family, who have become like a third family for us in Carlisle. In the late hours of 2012 we discussed what God had been saying to us, and came to Him in prayer for the year ahead. It was so nice to take time out to seek God on such an occasion. We were also delighted to listen to Big Ben chime on the radio and see fireworks right out the window!

A family Christmas

Our first Christmas together as a married couple was also our first opportunity (and perhaps the last for a while) to share Christmas with Ruth’s family. We are really blessed to be able to drive down to Norwich to share in the celebrations. We were able to spend time with Ruth’s Parents, Gran and Uncle and partner (pictured).
We were also fortunate to visit Ruth’s sending church NBC for their Nativity and Carols services and see some old friends over the pre-Christmas weekend. It was a great time of refreshment for both of us.
