I know I haven't updated for a while, but not much is happening on the Africa front (in my case, anyway - Africa hasn't stopped just because I left..) except preparing to start the scary job of fundraising and to move to Birmingham for Connect.
I just wanted to share an awesome talk I listened to while I was on a very long bus journey from Mbarara to Kampala (took 9 hours rather than 4, as a piece of the bus fell off and we had to wait for a replacement part. I did have a nice french chat with a guy from the Congo though). It's by Steve Saint, whose dad was killed by Equadorian tribesmen when he was a baby and then returned as a missionary to the same tribe. It's a pretty emotional talk, but he manages to put into words some of the amazing things I've learnt about God in the past year. I cried and laughed while listening to it (which is a little embarrassing on the bus) and it has to be one of the best preaching I've heard in a long time. It's quite long (about an hour) but well worth a listen, especially if you want to know why people do crazy things like going to scary places in the world to share the Gospel.
Here it is! Enjoy.
