Amefufuka – He is risen!

March 23, 2008

Amefufuka qweli – he is risen indeed!

One of the few Kiswahili phrases I can remember from our time living in Tanzania. Easily recalled as I hear it every year on Easter Sunday from my family as we remember Jesus death and resurrection.

Jesus is risen from the dead. Read more here!

Amefufuka kweli!

This is one of the few Kiswahili expressions I can remember from our time living in Tanzania. I remember it well as, unlike the rest of my Kiswahili vocab, I use it semi-regularly (at least every year). ‘Amefufuka’ translated means “He is risen!” and the reply “He is risen indeed” refering to Jesus Christ. This simple to and fro between Christians bring back great memories of Africa for me and helps me remember Christ’s death and resurrection for us all!

Awesome indeed!

CMS Summer School

January 2, 2007

CMS Summer School is fast approaching. It’s something my family has been involved in since 1985. We went as a family to Tanzania as missionaries with CMS.

Tonight we have my Dad and Celia for dinner, who tomorrow are heading to Katoomba to begin setup. We’re planning on going up on the Wednesday with my Grandma – hope to see you there.

Dad has been telling me that all the talks will be instantly available online at and you can check out the Summer School Blog for updates and videos.
