Looks pretty unremarkable, doesn’t it. A small, well thumbed devotional with Psalm 23 (The Lord’s my shepherd) in Korean and a signature. But it’s one of my prized possessions…

Hea Woo is one of the most remarkable ladies I have met. Now in her early 70’s she is a pocket dynamo of passion for Jesus and people. Hea Woo lost her husband and child and spent a number of years in a North Korean prison camp in appalling conditions with death, disease and desperation all around. Yet she shared what little rice she had, helped the sick and established a very small church which if discovered would have been a death sentence. The only safe place to meet was in the putrid toilet where guards wouldn’t go.

I will keep posting about my activities but it is for extraordinary people like Hea Woo that I do it.

Turning 60 is a door to a new decade. I want to use these years positively, starting with the next one. So I want it to be a year of trying different things as well as familiar one and to do a couple of challenges. 60 things at 60 with the aim of raising £6 000 for the charity Open Doors, serving persecuted Christians around the world, many who live with very little. Would you be part of the adventure with me?
