About this blog

This blog has a number of purposes. I occasionally wonder if people read this blog and think ‘what on earth is all this about?’ If so, this is written for you. If you never think that, you don’t need to read this.

Mainly it is for communication. We hope it is helpful in giving you a flavour of what life here is like, especially for family and friends.

It is a good way to share news- good and bad, to update you on any changes and let you know what we are thinking and feeling.

It is also to help people to pray. We don’t often put specific prayer requests on- we send out a prayer letter for that- but knowing what is happening will hopefully help you to pray for us if you’d like to.

Lastly I enjoy writing it. I’ve found it really helpful to write about life here in this way, it’s a bit like a kind of diary. It’s a good way of processing what is happening and how we feel. We are bombarded with so many new things, difficult decisions and new situations that it is helpful to write about them. This means that often you may feel that posts are highly self-indulgent. They probably are. It also means that there often is no specific reader in mind.

Ultimately though (can that come after lastly?) even though this blog appears to be all about us, we hope that it will point to God in some way. It is all through Jesus and for Jesus. He is the reason we live here anyway.
