We're off to Serenje

So this Friday evening a team of 8 of us are heading to Serenje for 2 weeks. The team are: Peter and Barbara Knight, Jonathan Hanbury, Rob Plant, Pip Reeves, Helen Cottee, Ed Garton and myself. We are going to be doing a whole range of things, from writing business plans for a guesthouse to go on the land we bought (this is where the dormitory will be built. The guesthouse will bring in money to ensure this project is sustainable), teaching sport, gardening, family planning sessions, sessions with young people on abstinence and respect, setting up a library and much more! We are hoping that we will arrive in time to see the shoes and coats we sent being distributed. We're also taking out a football kit that Binfield Football Club kindly donated through Ian Hudell.

We'd really value your prayers whilst we're away. Please pray for:
- the team in Serenje who have done so much to prepare for our arrival, in particular Alex and Leah.
- that we will be a blessing and make a contribution that will last
- safety in travel
- good health
- God to be at the centre of all that we do.

Thank you for your prayers. We'll keep you posted on how we're getting on!
