I haven't told you about CAP yet!!!! By the way thats our logo at the top but for some reason blogger has turned the blue writing in to green?! Weird!

Anyway CAP!

What is it?

John Kirkby founded CAP in 1996 in response to the tremendous poverty he saw in his home city of Bradford. As a Christian, he felt God call him to help using his skills gained through 17 years experience in the consumer finance industry.

CAP aims to show God’s love in action by providing sustainable poverty relief through debt counselling, advice and practical help. CAP’s unique ‘hands on’ approach empowers people to help themselves out of poverty and be released from the fear, oppression and worry generated by overwhelming debts. Vital financial and budgeting life skills are developed through our services, thus ensuring poverty relief is sustainable.

The charity operates through a growing network of centres based around the UK, all opened in partnership with a local church. Over the last ten years, the charity has grown from one man to a national charity with 41 centres open across the country.CAP’s vision is to help answer the national problem of debt in the UK by opening a CAP centre in every major town and city by the year 2021. We have recently been in a period of consolidation and are now stepping out to achieve our 2021 vision by opening 20 centres a year from now on.

Its such an amazing charity, i am so blessed to be able to work for them as a centre Manager at the Walton Centre which is in partnership with the salvation Army.

Got lots of exciting stories to tell you all about CAP but i think thats enough one one sitting!

More little friends

Here are 2 more of my little friends! This is Miss Chloe and her little sister Miss Lauren. Chloe is so cute! She always tells me that she loves me! Her best friend is Jesus cos he's always with her and when she laughs he laughs and when she crys he crys and that he loves her very much! Bless her.

We are so blessed at our church as we have loads of lovley kids!

The Nativity Story

This is the new film that's just come out, well I say new! The story is probley one of the oldest ever!!!

I went to see this on Tuesday night with our Alpha group. It was really excellent!

I don't think I really realized how difficult things were at that time. Herods tax collectors pinching everyone's money and if people didn't have money then they would take an animal or a child from the family. A little bit like what we call bailiffs.

Mary was so so faithfully to God, one thing that really stuck out to me was her response when she saw the Angel, and he told her what Gods plan for her was

" I am the Lords servant. May everything you have said about me come true."

What an amazing woman of God!! In those times you would get stoned for getting pregnant before you were married, not like now when its just one of those things so to speak. Mary knew that her parents would be mad and that Joseph would also be devastated and that you would be classed as muck by her whole village. Nevertheless because she trusted God so much she accepted his plan for her. What a woman!!!!

Its certainly challenged me, I want to be as trusting and as faithfull as Mary was.
I want to be a moden day Mary! ( obviously i don't mean with a baby etc!)

To quell the spirit

Been thinking quite a bit recently about the holy spirts power and if we ask to be filled of it but then become a chicken when we are prompted to do stuff then wahts the point?
Also been thinking about all the bizare and amazing things that the holy spirit does ie Healing, casting out deamons, speaking in tongues, slaying in the spirit etc etc

If that doesn't happen at your church beacause people think its all a little strange and weird does that mean that you are quelling the spirit? and then if you are doing that does that mean your kinda speaking bad of the Holy spirit? therefore committing the unforgivable sin in ignorance?

I don't know why we find this stuff strange!(thats me included) It talks about all this stuff in the bible really clearly! I mean we don't find the fact that Jesus tells us he loves no matter what strange or the fact that God made the world strange etc etc We just take it as normal beacuse its in the bible. So what can't we get our heads round this stuff?
