This week (15-21 May) is Christian Aid Week. Christian Aid are focussing this year on Bangladesh, which is a country very much affected by climate change. People in Bangladesh were already facing many challenges, but life has become even more difficult for them as a re...

My first Sunday in Chepkero Parish and I have had the most scary experience of my life! We had an 8am service of Morning Prayer in English in the church next to the Vicarage. After that, we met the children of   Sunday school briefly -- they meet in an airless room wi...

I finally have time and an internet connection -- which means that I can write a blog post at last. Getting internet sorted for my tablet proved a bit complicated. The Safaricom shop in The Village Market (a big shopping centre on the outskirts of Nairobi had no dongle...
