I'll blog for you baby!


I recently went to an interview for a Christian missionary trip into very rural Zambia. I'm bursting at the seams to use my skills for community development - having been overwhelmingly inspired after meeting the likes of Frank Kronenberg and David Werner.

Although this trip will be missions focused they have identified the need for someone to do health promotion. I was literally on the edge of my seat when I heard, although my religious/spiritual standpoint is complicated. I'll leave it there because I don't know where to begin on that topic.

So part of the interview focussed on who will support me - of course primary emotional support will be from my husband. But... what about spiritual? Henk is (what he likes to call himself) a Bright. This (I think) is an ego boosting term implying that he is clever enough to realise that there is no concrete evidence to suggest that there even is a God. Our debates are endless.
So... in the interview it becomes apparent that my non-Christian husband and my complicated stand-point could become a problem.

Later that evening Henk asks how the interview went and if I'll be going to Zambia. My reply is I don't know: "It seems like the fact that you won't pray for me could be a problem." To which he replies:

"But I'll blog for you, baby!"
