And what a wonderful time I had!
The marquee was packed for the children’s praise party and although we were all sweltering in the heat, the action packed hour stayed very lively right until the very last song!
In the evening 150 came for the curry evening and afterwards I spoke and sang for about 45 minutes. What I said seemed to be really well received and I had some great conversations afterwards.
This is such a well organised annual event and all the organisers and people we met were so warm and friendly. It was a pleasure and an honour to have been invited to be a small part of it.
Big day tomorrow.
Dashing up to Frinton-on-sea to join in their annual mission week.
I will arrive at midday for a prayer lunch then set up for the Praise Party which will be held in a marquee on the sea front which will begin at 2.45. They are expecting around 500 children…Wow!
Then in the evening they are hosting a curry evening where around 100 guests are expected and I will be the ‘after curry’ speaker!
Sounds like a great day and if you fancy ‘popadoming’ in…you’d better ‘curry’ oh…and feel free to bring your ‘Nan’!
My cousin kindly reminded me that I have not been putting much news up for you lately but that is about to change!
I’ve been putting my news on Facebook but of course a lot of you don’t follow Facebook so everything (sensible) that I put on Facebook I will also post on this website.
Last week I was at Park End Church in Cardiff. On the Friday morning I did a praise party at their kids club then at 7 I performed a ‘sting in the tale’ concert.
Being back doing a kids club after quite a while was brilliant fun…and yes, I can still just about manage it and the ‘Sting’ concert was a great evening!
Great day with lovely people..
More news for you later today about where I am going to tomorrow.
Dear Ish website friends.
May I appeal to your generosity please.
Our son Joss is again on his travels (having walked New Zealand) and this time he is walking from Lands End to John O’Groats.
The hike is about 1200 miles total (up mountain and down dale) and at present he has walked over 400 miles and is in Sandbach north of Crewe.
He is doing this to raise money for the same charity as before the Snowdrop Trust who cares for children in their own homes who have a life threatening or terminal illness.
The reason we as a family hold them in such high regard is because they were such a wonderful support to us when we went through our darkest hours a few years ago.
If you can afford to give even just a small amount to show your support, Joss, Snowdrop and I would really appreciate it.
You can follow Joss on the link below and even on the wettest and toughest days, I guarantee he will write something or post up a photo that will make you smile.
In advance…thank you. Ish x

Some of you now will be preparing for your summer kids clubs and maybe looking for some good songs to use.
I’m not suggesting that mine are good…but I am saying that mine are fun and your children will enjoy singing them!
For younger children I would recommend the following CD’s
Little songs for little children
I know Jesus loves me
For older children
Bigger barn (which has favourite ‘Wolfy Wolfy on it)
And for all ages of children
52 Scripture songs vol 1
52 Scripture songs vol 2
Vital to teach children Scripture verses in a way they will enjoy and remember!
All the above (and many more CD’s) can be bought from our website shop either as downloads or CD’s. The music is also available for most of them
