The Water Cycle

I am blessed to live in a beautiful corner of one of the most beautiful places on earth. It also happens to be a great place for mountain biking as I can literally cycle from my back gate and be in the Brecon Beacons within minutes. Anyway, I have resolved this year to get out on my bike more…and then I came across this video!

This is MTB in Wales and it’s stunning.



Full Grown

Today is #antislaveryday. I am sure that the news channels, as well as your social media feeds, will be full of news about human trafficking and modern slavery today. I thought it would be good to mark the day by profiling a film that was made here in Gwent recently.

As you are probably aware I lead a ministry called Red Community that is all about raising awareness, raising support and raising an army to stand against human trafficking in Wales. One of the projects that we have been involved in this year is RED Alert – the creation of a series of short films aimed at helping people understand the reality and scale of human trafficking in our own nation. The first film, Escape, profiled sex trafficking (you can watch it here).

Today, I’m posting up the second film, Full Grown, that profiles criminal exploitation. This is the crime of forcing or coercing people to engage in criminal activity such as begging, pick-pocketing, credit card fraud and cannabis cultivation.

Vast amounts of the UK’s cannabis is grown by young men, often children, who have been trafficked into the UK, from overseas nations, perhaps most notably China and Vietnam. Full Grown is a gritty and powerful film, based on actual events, that sheds some light on the brutal reality faced by many of these modern-day slaves.

Please don’t just watch it. Let the weight of it’s message impact you. Pray about it. Share it. Help us to raise awareness about human trafficking in Wales.


The Light Everlasting

My friends at Christchurch recently linked up with video genius Andy Toovey of 2V Studios to create a series of short films that explore something of the miracle and mystery of the incarnation of Jesus Christ – the true Light who gives light to the world. I’m going to post one of these each day for the next 3 days as Christmas day approaches.

I hope they are as much a blessing to you as they were to me…
