Crafty things/Acceptance

Today was a great day. There are many things that happend today.

One was a craft fair/coffee shop type thing at church to raise money for the trip to Africa. If you missed it, you certainly missed out (the local radio even popped along). The young people did amazingly. They worked unbelievably hard, and made some money! We are still counting the miles though! (I'm on 270 by the way, only 10 miles behind target)

The other thing was Acceptance. A Girls Only conference run as a town wide event. A very big success. It's very hard to get an event like this up, so hopefully it won't be the last. I was asked to speak and it was such a privilege. Very exciting things going on in Luton once again.

Lots happening tomorrow too, but I'll blog about that later!

5 years

and a few days.

An interesting non-milestone.

Lots has happened in five years, thanks for the reminder Michael.

Social Networking has taken over our lives and blogging seems to be a thing of the past, seemingly replaced by micro-blogging. I don't think it'll catch on, but the press seem to be having a field day with celebs micro-blogging their days. It's quite sad, but also funny. I have a feeling the internet may implode on itself quite soon.

Cycling is going well, so far 145 miles. Which is the distance (driving) from Luton to Calais. Only 255 miles to go! Yeay!

Many other things have happened, but you can read the blog if you want to pick up on the things which have been important to me.

iSpeak (again)

I spoke at St Hugh's yesterday morning for the second time this year. Was very interesting to preach from a book that's not the Bible, but seeing as I cycle for 40mins a day I had time to read the chapter I was preaching on.

Here's the link
for my one and only fan - my Dad.

That's all I have to say for now. Short and sweet.

And as a total after thought, 5 years this weekend!

If you know me you'll know I'm on my way to cycling 4000 miles, the equivalent distance btween Luton and Kampala, Uganda!

Scary stuff! But I'm finding it fun. Granted I've only done 50 miles so far... but that is further than I've riden in my entire life I'm pretty sure!

We are going to Uganda with Mission Direct.
If you want to give us any money - oh yeah I have 8 young people doing it with me - click on the link in the title!
