Father I Place Into Your Hands: Lyrics, Hymn and Video

Father I Place Into Your Hands The Things I Cannot Do.

Father I place into Your hands
the things I cannot do.
Father, I place into Your hands
the times that I’ve been through.
Father, I place into Your hands
the way that I should go,
for I know I always can trust You

Father, I place into Your hands
my friends and family.
Father, I place into Your hands
the things that trouble me.
Father, I place into Your hands
the person I would be,
for I know I always can trust You.

Father, we love to seek Your face,
we love to hear Your voice.
Father, we love to sing Your praise,
and in Your name rejoice.
Father, we love to walk with You
and in Your presence rest,
for we know we always can trust You.

Father, I want to be with You
and do the things You do.
father, I want to speak the words
that You are speaking too.
Father, I want to love the ones
that You will draw to You,
for I know that I am one with You.

Church Army Africa – How we connected

Church Army Africa: How we connected

CAA1My connections with Church Army Africa began in 2006. Christ Church in Herne Bay UK became directly connected with the Church Army Academy in Nairobi Kenya. The ever expanding Academy had been looking to raise funds to purchase a new school bus to transport the children safely to and from school. Members of staff from the Academy, Christ Church members and two other close friends became a team who would attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and raise funds for the bus. I was proud to be a part of the team.

After the Kilimanjaro trip I always knew i would return to Nairobi as soon as possible to help the Academy and the Church Army Africa Organisation as far as I could. All I needed to do was to be patient and wait for “the right time” As 2009 drew to a close i knew it was time to be in Africa, I had personally saved enough funds to cover a month long visit, my Family, friends, loved ones and Christ Church were all in full support, the timing was now right.

I spent the whole of January 2010 in Nairobi, Kenya at the Jogoo Road Headquarters of Church Army Africa. I carried out renovation works to two classrooms at the Academy. During the visit I spent some of the time with the good people of Church Army Africa looking into further projects that I could become involved with. Everything about my partnership with Church Army Africa can be found within this website so please enjoy looking through the information.

I can honestly say it is an absolute pleasure to be involved with Church Army Africa an organisation of wonderful people with a true passion for life. Please take time to visit their website Church Army Africa you may find ways to become involved yourself.
As for myself the Church Army Motto says it all………….

Church Army Academy Classroom Project 2010

A Need For Classroom Improvements

In January 2010 I made a 28 day visit to Church Army Africa and The Church Army Academy. Alex Kagunda the headmaster at the Academy asked if i would be kind enough to renovate and improve 2 classrooms that over many years had become run down. If you take a look through the photographs below you will see the classrooms had suffered from years of “wear and tear”. The steel sheeting was badly damaged and also caused the rooms to be very hot in the African sun, the rooms were so dark that flash photography was needed even at midday. Lining the rooms with plywood as reduced the heat transfer and i am sure you will agree the new colour scheme is much more pleasant. The classrooms are now a much more comfortable environment for the children of the Academy to learn in. I hope you will agree a “Job Well Done”.

It is always my pleasure to volunteer and help out at the Academy and over the years I have made many great friends there, both teachers and children.

I feel the best way to document this visit would be through an image gallery. Please enjoy the images below which show the whole project from start to finish.
