Living out of suitcases

Michelle and I have finally moved out of our home of 11 years. We had no idea how much work would be involved in packing up, storing, selling, throwing away, giving away all our stuff! We have a new appreciation for Jesus’ challenge to his disciples on mission in Luke 10 — travel light! Our […]

Leaving home

Still busy packing up and getting ready to move. Here’s our latest newsletter which introduces some of our partners in the UK. Hope to get back to blogging soon… more…

Still packing up

Apologies for going quiet on the blog. We’ve been preoccupied with getting ready to move to the UK. Lots of sorting, packing, and annoying details to take care of. Good news — Saffie the Wonderdog (in the box) may have a new home. Here’s our latest newsletter. Not sure when I’ll begin writing again. I […]

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

Photo: Sir Edmond Hilary and Tenzing Norgay on the India-Nepal border. I’m back from trekking in the foothills of the Hymalayas with some CPM buddies. Aussie, American, and a Nepali/Indian from Bhutan. Plus our Sherpa guide. The ride up and back was scary. A 1954 Landrover and the bumpiest drive I have ever experienced. Stray […]

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 […]
