60 and a half

Well, I’m now one twentieth of my way to 70! Or halfway through 60@60. So here is a short update of progress so far:

*26 activities completed so a bit behind target but 3 ongoing. Some ideas have been held back a bit by lockdown.

*£3 400 raised or 57% of target

So thanks so much, that’s fantastic. I am pretty shattered physically at the moment but have a few more ideas that I’m hoping to start implementing soon. So watch this space!

Today it snowed in Shoeburyness. Apparently the first proper snow ❄ here since 2009. Cold but beautiful! And gave me the chance to make a snow angel!

Today I saw a green woodpecker-only 4 birds to hit the 60. And recipes are well into the 30’s; last night I made broccoli and celery soup…

All of this is pretty peripheral to the main purpose of the whole thing which is to stand alongside and support persecuted Christians. The picture of the snow and berries above reminds me of blood and purity. Of Jesus’s death for us but also the suffering of North Korean Christians in the Labour camps.

I have attached another clip. This is another reminder of why you and I are doing this together:

In case you ever want to make a donation the best way to way to do so is via justgiving. I am under AdrianSmith6060. Thanks.

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?

  1. Thank you Ade. Difficult to hear of the treatment of our family in North Korea, but we need to know. So glad OD are being used by God to encourage and provide for the believers there. May many more prisoners, like prisoner 42 be released this year.
