HOUSE OF BREAD
Unfortunately, someone misread
account figures and Brother Raju was wrongfully accused
of being a fraudster..
Money has been sent monthly for the teacher's
wages since our trip to India in Dec 2009. This amount
has been between £80 and £100 pounds per month.
We met these teachers on our trip to India
and visited the schools that Brother Raju runs to make
life easier for the children to be fed, taught and nurtured
in the Christian faith. We also witnessed many other wonderful
things that Brother Raju is doing for the poor people
of India, including Aids victims, orphans, and widows.

Here's another of my new songs....
Condemnation Is The Root
Romans 8:1, NASB
1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ
When you have a plant with sickly leaves,
it would be foolish to just treat the leaves without knowing the
root cause of the problem. Similarly, when leaves of
sickness, poverty and destructive habits start sprouting in your
life, you need to know what the root cause is.
Experts will tell you that it is stress.
They may go a little deeper and say that it is fear fear
of the future, of rejection, of loss, of death and so on. But is
fear really the root? Or is there something deeper than fear?
The Bible shows us that the most fundamental
cause of problems in our lives is condemnation. With condemnation
comes fear. Fear then induces stress which brings about the symptoms
of the curse.
This is what happened to Adam. Long before
he faced poverty, sickness and eventually death, he had stress.
Because of his sin, God told him, In the sweat of your face
you shall eat bread till you return to the ground. (Genesis
3:19) Sweat speaks of stress. But before there was stress, there
was fear because Adam told God, I heard Your voice in the
garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.
But what made Adam fearful? Adam only
feared when, seeing his nakedness, he realized that he had sinned
against God. He felt so ashamed and condemned that he hid himself.
God then asked him, Who told you that you were naked?
(Genesis 3:11) There was no one else in the garden other than Adam
and Eve, so we know that it was probably the devil who told Adam
that he was naked.
My friend, condemnation is the root cause
of the symptoms of the curse manifesting in your life. That is why
you need to know that at the cross, God took all your sins, put
them on Jesus and unleashed the full fury of His wrath against them
until Jesus cried out, It is finished!
All your sins have been completely punished
in the body of Christ who was condemned for you. The root cause
of all your problems has been dealt with. This means that the devil
cannot enforce the curse in your life apart from your receiving
condemnation. So come to the place of no condemnation and no sick
leaves will sprout in your life!

The Lord is saying. If
things do not turn out just like you expected, praise!! My will
and purpose for you life is coming to pass!. Do not lean on
your own understanding but trust me with all of your heart.
You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail.
Proverbs 19:21 New living translation
Well the Lord obviously knew I had bitten off more than I could
chew... Thank God... He stepped in.
On Monday, before the family went down to Leeds for Jonny's
graduation, Katey broke the news that the the trip we were planning
that night to Ffald-y-Brenin would be too much to fit into her
busy itinerary. I knew I couldn't drive the whole way without
help. Determined to make the journey, I was in a bit of a pickle.
Then two other friends from Doncaster, Josie and Mia decided
they were coming too. That threw me out of the frying pan into
the fire... Neither of them drive and one would have to ride
in the back on the bed...
Thank God... at the eleventh hour, (Well after 8 pm actually)
my other friend Kate who lives in Brownhills, Walsall told me
she was coming. We drove down there from Doncaster at 10.pm
Monday night, arrived just before 12 pm and she put us up for
the night. At 6 am Tuesday, we left the van with her husband
and she drove us to Wales in their car. What a journey!!!! Yes
it was beautiful but it took us hours. The roads were so narrow
and winding, that you had to pull into designated spaces to
let oncoming traffic pass. I wonder how my G registered van
would have coped???
After an intense day of teaching and looking round Ffald-y-Brenin
(Mia and I visited the cross, which was quite an experience)
We travelled back to Walsall on Tuesday evening, so bless Kate's
heart for taking the burden. Praise God she seemed to look in
fine fettle when we left her yesterday.
So I'm here at home recuperating and assimilating that which
I learnt at Ffald-y-Brenin about Local Houses of prayer and
praying about what God is wanting for House of Bread. So...
WATCH THIS SPACE.!!
I'll be updating before I go to America on the 28th!!
A poem by Diane Walker
I am not a random clash of DNA
I am the product of a million years
and a 1000 generations of Gods grace
He did not just knit me together in my mothers womb
but in each and every generation
I am unique
no one has my DNA no one has my genetic fingerprint
the hairs on my head he numbered
& the lines on my fingerprint he drew
I am not a random clash of DNA
I am the product of Gods grace and I am unique
From the moment of my birth I have had
a life full of unique events that only I have experienced
Not random events but unique events events
that have brought me by Gods grace to this moment
and have has made me who I am
I am not a random clash of DNA
I am unique
THE STREAMS OF LIVING WATER
FLOW OUT FROM US TODAY
TO HEAL THE BROKEN-HEARTED

AS DEER CARESSES DOE
IN SOFT AND GENTLE RAIN,
THE FATHOMLESS DEPTHS OF HIS

THE DEPTHS OF OUR BEING HE SEARCHES
AS WE WILE AWAY THE TIME
THE COMFORT AND CALM OF HIS LOVE WE ACQUIRE
WHEN OUR FLESH WE BRING INTO
"FORGET THE PAST" HE BIDS US
AS DAY MELTS INTO NIGHT
"JUST FOLLOW ME" HE
"AND I WILL TAKE UP YOUR
"THE BATTLE BELONGS TO ME "HE SAYS
DO'NT WORRY I'M ALWAYS THERE
TO DELIVER ENCOURAGE AND STRENGTHEN
AND TO ENFOLD YOU IN MY CARE"
"COME TO ME MY CHILD AND NESTLE
IN MY ARMS TODAY I SAY,
THE GRANDEUR OF MY KINGDOM
WILL BE YOURS AS WELL ONE DAY"

5You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of
the arrow that flies by day, 6nor of the pestilence that
walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste
During World War II, German planes bombed London. Houses
were leveled. But there was one that remained standing amidst
the rubble. Its owner said that when she read Psalm 121:4,
which says, Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither
slumber nor sleep, she told the Lord, Lord,
since You dont sleep, then there is no point in both
of us keeping awake. I will sleep while You keep watch.
And she did, while the Lord protected her and her house.
In 2005, terrorists attacked Londons public transport
system. That day, a Singaporean girl found herself unexpectedly
late for work and could not get to the train station in
time to board her usual train. When she finally neared the
station, she realized that it had been bombed just a few
minutes earlier. Her mother, who worships in our church,
believes that God protected her daughter that day.
God wants you to know that you have round-the-clock protection
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence
that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays
waste at noonday.
He protects you from the terror by night, which
could refer to evils such as rape, kidnap or murder. He
promises you protection from the arrow that flies
by day. This could refer to bullets from a crazy sniper,
drive-by shootings or home-made rockets fired into your
God also shields you from the pestilence that walks
in darkness, referring to viruses which you cannot
see. You dont have to be afraid of deadly viruses
lurking somewhere or wonder if some deadly disease is developing
in your body.
God also doesnt want you to be afraid of the
destruction that lays waste at noonday, such as a
tsunami hitting the beach resort you are at, or a bomb going
off in the shopping mall you are in.
You need not be afraid because God, who neither slumbers
nor sleeps, is watching over you 24 hours a day!
