    It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God

    People of Oshandi have a richness about them that doesn’t come from wealth but from: Simplicity they are genuine; without pretence. Poverty a reliance on God; internal freedom. Humility  recognition of the truth of what and who they are; free from pride and arrogance; they are servants, not superior to anyone; having a childlike trust […]

    A day trip to Ombuluka

    The vicar drive us through the bush 🙄 …. What can I say? Alton Towers has nothing in comparison to driving through deep sand in a 4×4  lol Ombuluka is Sharon’s link from her last parish at St Michaels, Rochdale.

    Gateway to Love: Personal reflection following a week in Oshandi.

    Love is the strongest force the world possesses and yet it is the humblest imaginable. —Mahatma Gandhi When you can let yourself become little enough, naked enough, and honest enough, then you ironically find that you are more than enough. At this place of poverty and freedom, you have nothing to prove and nothing to […]

    Blessed Sarah – Actions speak a thousand words

    Unassuming, gentle, kind, thoughtful, honest, attentive with a gift for making everyone feel special. The significance of Sarah’s calling to work in Namibia and the fruits of all she has achieved are evident in the faces of all the people she meets and the  demonstrative way in which they greet her. Sarah’s influence and impact […]

    Moving on…

    I leave Windhoek today for the north with a mixture of emotion. I have met wonderful people, established future connections and feel all the more richer after engaging in fruitful conversation. The hotel, despite its basic accommodation, has been the most perfect place to stay during the first stage of our journey. The staff could […]

    Visiting new schools…

    I spent 4 hours today at a school with Headteacher Caroline Strauss. She has been working at the school for 32 years and has just taken over the headship. How different does this school look to St Chad’s?

    Seeing Namibia for the first time…

    When I arrived in Namibia at 6.00am it was pitch black.  As we drove towards Windhoek in our taxi dawn slowly started to appear until, eventually, the bright red orb that had effortlessly raised itself up from the motionless horizon, was hanging high in the sky … the dry, thorny listless bushland seemed to stretch, […]
