to do


this March you all be getting two Lulus
Why? Those of you who know Priscilla and I well will know that I can work here in part because I am an Irish citizen. Priscilla was born in Galway (see link here https://charlesosewalt.com/2013/06/
For her story) and I am simply riding on her coat tails. (PS I love when we went to Ireland and I met friendly Irish blokes who said to me ‘Where are you from?’ I said-‘Here-Ireland.’ They laughed and I pulled out my passport and showed it to them. I love their faces: surprised; questioning; confused) so, on 17 March you will be getting our Second St. Pat’s day Lulu… Till then here is Priscilla on her work here.

Dear Family and Friends,
When my Elizabeth was about 18 months old, she would follow me around the house as I did my daily chores. She would look up at me with those big brown eyes and ask, “doing?” Of course, she wanted to do it too. She wanted to be with me in my doing.
So, now I will share with you what I am doing and be comforted in the knowledge that you will be with me.

We have been involved in our church in Kentish Town, St Luke, slowly getting to really know the good people there and their needs. I have been praying and studying with several young women. We meet individually (once a week or so on average) and try to seek the light of God’s word. I am learning with them and am thankful. This last month we have been studying Philemon, and listening to Paul appealing to Philemon to forgive Onesimus, his runaway slave. Paul say’s “for loves sake I appeal to you on the basis of love.”
I guess I am sharing this with you all because this dear young lady told me that her Mum taught her that she needs to say “God bless you” to those who hurt her. My friend, this young woman, said that once, when really hurt, she went to go for a bike ride, another friend of hers, not knowing she was hurt, said “God Bless you.” She said it was like entering into a thin place where heaven touches earth, where God comes in. So this is one very special thing I am doing. Doing.

One of the other wonderful things I am able to do is to discover beautiful places. Kenwood House is a beautiful estate very close to our home. It is one of the thin places where I can go and worship, study, bring these dear friends and think of you. I go there with some of these young women to study and pray. It is all lovely and free!

God bless you all in all your doings. Rejoice with me as I share with you, as we share in the thin places as this young girl has taught me.

Love Priscilla
And Charlie

    Thanks for letting me be “doing” with you. I love the verbal image of your thin space. I will picture you there and in some way only God can make happen, will be there doing with you. Anita
