Hi there, Well I am back and so sorry for the delay.
I wasn’t going to do a blog for a little while, but thought I would share for a few
minutes from a personal perspective as I walk through this season of life.
Following my return from Egypt I felt very overwhelmed. Some because of the
goodness I saw poured out at our SHE @ HE 2019 conference there. To see so
many young people impacted for good brings an overwhelming joy. But at the
same time the weariness of all of the responsibility involved can drain the soul.
This mixed with life pressures back home has the potential to deplete the
reservoir of faith, life and confidence. The outcome of this is the sense that
there is nothing to give.
“I want to encourage everyone, whether it feels like we have nothing to

“ He will never sleep nor slumber, He is the guardian God for His people,
Jehovah Himself will watch over you”
I understand at times when there is so much at stake in life, this is easier said
than done. If we can do it, it is the way to win over the torment that knocks on
the doorway of the soul in the night seasons.
As you read this blog, my hope for us all is that we dig deep. What came to rob,
steal or destroy will be put to flight with the energizing power of the new.
See you again soon,
