There is an interestin post at The ESV Bible Blog on why most Bibles have two columns. There are three reasons apparently; Economics, Readibility and History. The article makes a good read for anyone who is interested in reading the Bible. Fascinatingly, the article itself is only laid out in one column!
Isn't technology amazing? I've just spent ninety minutes in a conference call with three colleagues; one in Canada, one in Kenya and one in Thailand. That's four continents and I don't know how many time zones. All done with the amazing Skype. If you are a Skype user and want to be able to call … Continue reading Skype
Some thoughts on God's providence... At lunchtime today, Sue texted me. It was the first time I'd heard from here in three or four days and I was starting to get worried. It's funny how the increase in communication has made it easier to get more concerned - there have been times when we've been … Continue reading What is God Doing?
Well, I'm almost half way through my trip and I think I may have got the water system sussed here. Since the water is heated by solar panels, there is hot water in the evenings, but it's not necessarily still warm by the morning, so best to shower in the evening.

I have to say that I like our garden at this time of year. The phtograph doesn't really do it justice because the sun decided to go in just as I was taking it and my phone is not the world's greatest camera. I can't use our proper camera because Sue has taken it to … Continue reading Springtime
On Friday it took 10 hours to fly from Paris to Antananarivo, capital of Madagascar. Then on Sunday it took us almost 10 hours to drive the more or less 400 km from Tana to Fianarantsoa. It wasn't quite as bad as I expected or had been led to believe and I managed not to … Continue reading Safe Arrival in Fianarantsoa

Tomorrow, Saturday, she will be in Antananarivo all day, spending … Continue reading Sue In Madagascar: First Report
URBANarmy Is an interesting blog that's well worth a look. It describes itself as "a collection of urban missio Dei musings and ponderings. There is an excellent link to a book review site that is well worth a glance if you are interested in mission.
