We're staying with our friends Chris & Rosie, and life has suddenly gone bananas. There is so much to take care of and so many people to see that an entire week has gone by without blogging. We have had appointments morning, afternoon and evening most days this week, and there are still some key things to take care of before we leave on Tuesday.

Today I managed to get some exercise in. My friend Simon took me cycling in the Cheshire countryside. I borrowed a bike from his neighbour, Michael (everyone in his street seems to be a cyclist) and we rode a forty mile round trip from his house in South Liverpool, down to the Runcorn bridge, through Frodsham, up a category four hill (which I walked most of), round some beautiful country lanes, back up that hill from the other side, and then back to Runcorn and home again.

I hadn't realised that forty miles was so far, and the last ten miles killed me, particularly as we were cycling mostly up hill and into the wind, which was pretty strong today. Still, the countryside was fantastic, the views from the hills were stunning, and I spent three hours and twenty minutes with a friend who I only really get to see once a year. That's going to change though as his daughter, Asha is going to come and work for me as an intern this year, starting in late August. Hooray!

Hey Man,

Incredible blog - I'm definitely going to be following your ministry in Egypt...

'm the Worship "Guy" at Calvary Chapel Jupiter in Palm Beach County, Florida and we just finished up our first all-original worship album. The goal is simply to write songs that will be a blessing to the Church in general. Songs from the local church, for the local church.

You can listen to the whole album online at and if you think you might use any of the songs at your church, just let me know and I'll mail you a free copy. That's it - no catch... and I'm not going to show up at your church asking to play for a "love offering"!

Let me know if you're interested...

Thanks & GB,

Jeff T.
