Thank You Ben

Well I hope you like the new look blog, it's refreshed and so am I.

I've had a great month off, busy but good. We had Kelly Greene and Jo Wells come and stay with us for a few days it was good to hang out and get to know Kelly and Jo better, Kelly works with prostitutes in a town called Reyanosa in Mexico.

We had our 24-7 leaders gathering in Seville it was good to meet up with other people from around the world who are trying to outwork the values of 24-7 prayer in a variety of different contexts.

After that we had a weeks holiday here on the island with some friends from England it was good just to go to the beach and spend the evenings drinking wine and talking.

I then traveled to Ireland for the launch of
24-7 Ireland it was great once again to hang out with friends and see the wonderful things that are happening in the land of my birth. I also managed to put on 2 kilos in 5 days, bread, potatoes and guiness!

My eldest son was 12 years old on Thursday and both my boys played in their school soccer team for the first time this weekend.

Now I am back, we are into a great winter rhythm which I am very excited about.

Voltaire said "Rest is a good thing, but boredom is its brother." thankfully I am not bored!

Thanks for hanging in there with me. I lost one or two links, not deliberately, just didn't cut and paste properly please let me know if you spot that anything is missing.

By the way Ben designed my blog, he also designed the 24-7 Ireland flyer, he lives here and needs some design work, if you know of any give me a shout? Check out his other work at Glorify Designs

I was happy waiting for your return and then I forgot about you for a while. But I'm glad you're back and can't wait to read all about what's been going on.

I love the new look. Ben is so talented.
