The Call In September-October of 2020 I experienced a clear call to missions from God. I believe that God has clearly led me through prayerful study of His Word to accept John Leach’s request for me to come to Chavuma, Zambia to take over the work that he has started there as he plans on
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”

Blessings abound in 2023 Blessings to you dear friends! I can hardly believe that we are at the end of 2023! This year has gone by so fast and much of it feels like a blur but we want to take pause to reflect on all that the Lord has done for us this year.
I have been visiting the panel-beater daily to oversee the repair of Abraham (our vehicle). Since Abe arrived in Lusaka, it has been at the panel-beater’s workshop. I am a bit nervous about the Zambian-style work environment because it doesn’t look professional. It hurts just to see Abraham surrounded by all those other smashed up
Our vehicle (Abraham) has finally arrived in Lusaka. It has arrived with some injuries sustained in transit in an accident with a motorcycle in Tanzania. Abraham arrived in Lusaka on Sunday, 3 December late in the afternoon. Abe was delivered directly to the panel-beater’s yard (the ‘hospital’) where he will be getting some repairs. Now
I am so glad I was able to repair Renee’s computer without it exploding. The battery had swollen so much that the casing made a frightening POPPING sound. We got such a fright since we anticipated it could explode any time. Fortunately, it didn’t.

I am especially grateful to those who travelled to Zambia from Cape Town to share this special moment with Renée and I and Christ Church Lusaka.
Is it normal for a MacBook to be Swelling? I am concerned that the swelling computer might explode! The expanding is getting progressively worse. The screws are straining to hold things together. The aluminium body is buckling and bending. The trackpad is sticking out awkwardly. I really don’t think it’s healthy for any computer to
On Sunday 5 November 2023, I returned home exhausted, but bubbling with joy after attending a week-long training in Nairobi, Kenya where we learnt to facilitate relational learning. This training was another module of the Entrust program I signed up for earlier this year. The Entrust program is based on the Scriptural calling of 2
It is crucial to train apprentices if we want to see churches growing and the Gospel advancing in Africa. I joined 13 other pastors in Zambia for a very engaging and helpful workshop training in Leopard’s Hill, Lusaka to learn how to train ministry apprentices. Tim Thorburn taught us for 3 days (08:00 to 16:00,
ABRAHAM has arrived in Africa I have just received news that ‘ABRAHAM’ has been off-loaded from the ship in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. There is some paperwork that needs to be completed before it can make the road-trip to Zambia. We trust that ABRAHAM will have a safe journey to Lusaka and arrive here in
The Ordination Service of Michael Watson You are cordially invited to attend the Ordination Service of Michael Watson in Lusaka, Zambia It would be so nice to have you join us.

Like Abraham of the Bible, ABRAHAM has left his home country (Thailand) and is headed to a (Zambia) country where God will use him to be a blessing to many. “I will bless you…so that you will be a blessing”Genesis 12:2 ESV The shipping company informed us that ABRAHAM is currently in transit on a ship in
We are so grateful for the HUGE encouragement we received from our home church last month. We received a care package from Tokai Community Church in September while we were down in Durban, South Africa for our church Synod. This care package contained some chocolates, biltong, nuts, coffee, cards, and notes. A smile enveloped our
