The coloured beard certainly got some attention and over 70 hits but sadly only two donations. Nevertheless what I did receive took me to the 60% mark of my target which is another 60 figure reached. Thank-you!
The 60 hour coloured beard that followed the 60 days of growing a beard is now followed by the 60 hour moustache. At the moment I feel like a refugee mexican baddie or an extra in a Jesse James movie. Or even like my Uncle in the 70’s! It will metamorphose into another style for Sundays blog though.
Other news on the activities front is that I have started booking accommodation for the final stage of the Pilgrims Way walk in mid May. Getting some of the places is a bit challenging but I’m making progress.
This week is International Women’s Week. Open Doors has been running a campaign called See.Change since last year. In countries where Christians suffer persecution, women suffer twice; first because of their gender and secondly because of their faith. They are often denied education, life chances and much more because they are women. As Christians they can be kidnapped, raped and rejected. If their husband leaves or is killed they often have no means to support their family. Please go to the Open Doors website or watch the OD Facebook Live interviews with a different MP every lunchtime this week to find out more. Definitely worth writing to your MP about-go to http://www.opendoorsuk.org for a template letter. Underneath is Peninah’s story from Kenya, a country where I once lived 🇰🇪
