I am devastated. I wrote a massive long post last sunday and I just checked today and it didn't publish, gutted! Apologies to everyone waiting on news and had none! Thanks so much for the emails peeps, really appreciate them, am sorry but don't think I am going to be able to reply cos only have a ridiculously small amount of time on internet, but keep them coming, its great to hear all your news, miss yas!

Stuff here right now is awesome but somewhat overwhelming. I am realising just how much God has to do in me that it would be easy to sink into a pit of "God, how are you ever going to change me" and then he reminds me that he is God and I am not, always good! I am humbled more than I ever thought possible. The Mozambiquan pastors I meet have a deeper, more real spirituality after being Christians for a couple of weeks than I think I may ever have. What radiates here is simplicity, simplicity of the gospel, the simplicity of what we are called to, we really make it too complicated.

We did outreach last night in a village that has never heard the name of jesus. It was awesome. The prescence of the Holy Spoirit was heavy in that place, lots of people became Christians and many people got healed. One girl was deaf and then Jesus restored her hearing. It is like an open heaven over this place, Jesus and the angels just show up all the time.

Guys, I don't know where to start. I am being wrecked to the core and biggest prayer is that I don't come back the same. There seems so much to press further and further into God, I am realising that there is so much of him to consume so little me. I feel really frustrated, I want to try and explain it all but am failing miserably. I think I will just blog bits of my journal from now on, snippets is better than mumbling!

Major Africa low point that rates at number one of low points, vomiting and diarrhoea at the same time on a latrine!! I actually had to laugh, it was possiby the most disgusting experience of my life!

Please pray against malaria for me, lots of people are getting it and my anti-malarials are making me so sick I have to stop taking them. Feel peaceful about it but protection would be good!
Please also pray that God would just continue to take me further and deeper in, I don't know how right now but I'm well hungry.

Gonna have to run, sorry this is so mumbled, will blog again soon with some more useful info!
Miss yiu all so much, hope you all good x x

well babe,
will keep the prayers going. will try and email you soon, but crazy here too. i love you and totally know that there isn't the slightest possibility that you will come back the same as you are already different!
feel like you just need to take authority over the sickness and tell it to go... if God is healing deaf ears then I'm sure He can cancel out d and v too.
love you ,

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
