Welcome to our blog!

Well, here we go. Its time for us to take the plunge into the exciting and murky world of the blog.

If you are reading this and have no idea who we are then here’s a quick summary. Simon and Becci Brown – married nearly 11 years – currently in Coventry – love Jesus – love Jubilee Church – love the nations – moving to Phnom Penh, Cambodia in July to lead Jubilee Family Church.

If you want to find out a bit more about us then you can watch an interview with us at http://www.vimeo.com/20642063. Please don’t be distracted by my constant fidgeting.

We’re going to be visiting Cambodia between 20 April – 12 May and will use this as a chance to test out our blogging skills.

Us with Becci's family in Stratford-upon-Avon recently

Its very weird to be getting ready to move. As an example, this week we had Becci’s sister Emily and her husband Tim staying with us. They are moving back to the UK after 2 years in California and so are going to be inheriting lots of our furniture. Being an organised kind of chap I had prepared a “shopping list” of our stuff for them, so they proceeded to spend an hour on Monday going round our house saying “We’ll have that, and that, not that, oooh I like that” and so on. Very strange indeed. Not quite sure why they didn’t want the toothbrush holders…

  3. Hi Simon and Becci!

    I hope you have arrived safely in Cambodia and have landed with a sense of excitement as the reality of moving hits home!

    When I was thinking about you, I think God reminded me of when I went swimming in a lake in Canada. It was beautiful and refreshing on a hot day but occasionally something in the deep water would brush against my leg and I’d panic and think, “What was THAT?!” (…shark?…crocodile?…fish with sharp teeth..!) The water was too deep and dark to see anything, so I had to make a decision not to panic and just to enjoy the swim! I think God might be saying to you that there may be things that you come accross that you can’t clearly identify and could potentially worry about. However, He doesn’t want you to focus on those things, or even try to figure out what they are. You should just trust that you are safe with Him, forget about these unknown things that come and go, and enjoy the refreshing swim!

    I hope that makes some sense. Weigh it up, obviously!

    Have a fantastic trip.

    Angie (and Thomas and Ella)
