Dear Dernier Friends, We’re already well into August… How did that happen? Sometimes it seems as though time really does have wings… Waiting for exam results Let’s pray for all the young people who are anxiously waiting for exam results.
Dear Dernier Friends, Summer is coming, along with warmer weather and exams! I hope you are keeping well and enjoyed the coronation of our new King? Pity it rained! Every season has its good things and struggles, doesn’t it –
Oliver’s Secret is a wonderful story about seven-year-old Clare, who has moved from China with her family, and who is now feeling lonely in her new home. She prays for a cat, and along comes Oliver… but who does he belong to?…
I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but some bookshops have Year 0033 on special offer right now – cheaper than our own website! So if you wanted to get a few copies for your young people for summer reading, as ‘well done’ presents for exam results, for students going off to uni or just to put away for birthday gifts (I’m not going to say Christmas!)… now’s your chance…
I don’t know about you, but this year has gone by so far in a bit of a blur. I feel extremely fortunate to be doing a job I love, with no restrictions… I hope that you, too, will have things you can thank God for, despite all the difficulties…
Good morning! It’s sunny here right now, though I don’t know for how long! I do love the sunshine. It raises my spirits and somehow brings hope with the warmth and light; especially now, in these difficult times, as the

All the news from the last month, condensed into one handy place! 🙂 Enjoy and be encouraged… and thanks for all your support and prayers. Easter.. If Jesus hadn’t died for us, if he hadn’t been raised from the dead, we would be lost forever, with no hope. It’s hard to express, for those of us who are children of God, how much that means to us. Words can not convey the gratitude, however much we try. This story, of all stories, is so full of joy after sorrow, hope after despair, light after darkness, truth after deception, life after death, undeserved forgiveness. Once again at this time of year, our hearts overflow with awe at the amazing grace of God – his sacrifice for us…
