Stuff happens

My apologies for laying low over the last few weeks. We’re up to our eyeballs sorting our “stuff” so we can store it, sell it, give it away or throw it away. It a big job packing up a house when you’re not moving your stuff to the next place. We’ll be leaving Melbourne for […]

The Addisons are on the move!

I have some important news to share with you. Michelle and I took time during my recent Long Service Leave to seek God regarding our next phase of life and ministry. We set aside time to wait on God. We spent some time celebrating what God has done over the last five years. We have […]

I’m back — sort of

Ahmed can I pray for you?

I’ve been on long service leave for most of December/January.  Michelle and I had two weeks in Turkey visiting ancient sites (Ephesus, Pergamon, Pamukkale, Cappadocia) and wandering down the Aegean coast to Fethiye. Loved Ephesus, one of the best preserved Roman ruins in the world. Istanbul was alone was worth the trip.  On the way […]

Christmas greetings from a cottage in Cornwall, England

I’ve spent most of November and early December training in disciple making movements around England — London, Bristol, Cambridge, Leicester and Nottingham. Now Michelle and I are taking some long service leave. We’ve found a quiet 17th Century cottage in a small town by the coast.  The locals assure us Cornwall is “sub tropical” which […]

The view from my window

I’m in Cambridge England this week, a guest at Ridley Hall. Ridley has been training ministers for the Anglican church since 1881. A plaque outside the chapel commemorates those who have given their lives in overseas missions. Two of the famous “Cambridge Seven” who served in inland China in the last 1800s were from Ridley. On […]

Cambodia

I’m off to Cambodia where I’l be training in Phnom Penh with some workers from around Asia with World Team. Followed by two days beholding the wonders of Siem Reap and An Angkor Wat.
