I sit down to write this blog with a full heart. As I look back on the month I just feel a sense of love and overwhelming peace. I have just this evening come back from Church feeling inspired, feeling more than ever that I wish to give God my all, drop everything at his feet and take on every appointing he wishes to give me.


The utter joy of receiving this in the post from my home group back in the UK. It...

Why are we so afraid of the stillness? Perhaps when I write this I write from my heart. For many, they welcome the quiet. If you’ve lived a day in Bangkok it isn’t rare to want to hide yourself in the confines of somewhere silent, somewhere away from people, even if just for a minute. I’m not sure I fit into this category. Living life at 100miles an hour is all I know. I’m nearly sure that I entered this world fast and ever since then I’ve not stopped running! God gave us 24 hours in which to tackle the tasks set before us. Bring it on, my moto has always been to squeeze every second out of the day. Starting a life in Bangkok has the potential to heighten...

Spiritual warfare. This word has so much attached to it. Underestimate it and it’s the devil’s way in, obsess about it and you forget that we have a king in whom we can rest assured is fighting out battles.

This is a topic that I questioned if I was going to write about it however I feel it is highly necessary because as Christians it is something that the Bible guarantees we are going to face. “I have...

Whoever said being a Christian was easy? I’m not sure anybody did. For most of my time as a Christian, I have spent a large part of it directing God and telling him where to place my own footsteps. I knew my plan and I needed God to get on board with it. Luckily, it doesn’t quite work like that. Am I in the place I imagined? Absolutely not, I am so so much more. I’m thousands of miles away walking in his will. I’m not a successful...

“My sacrifice O God is a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart, you God will not despise.”

Two Planes and three time zones later, I arrive in Bangkok. Here I am, after all this time, all this preparation. Many moons ago it feels, I walked into the office of BMS, a nervous woman with a calling on my heart. Who would have thought that on the 15th Jan 2017 I would be stepping into the arms of God ready to walk in his will. It took him long enough to get me and now I’m here.

Psalm 51 vs 17 sums up the way I felt during that first week. I was here yes but where would God take me next? What would the next two years hold? All I have to offer is a...
