December 2020

Truly a year of  challenges for all which has motivated me to dust off a manuscript reflecting on the wonder of the Trinity. Hoping to self-publish soon. 

June 2019
Glad to have been able to send monies arising from sales of  'Grace - a gift of Godto the charities I am supporting and had the following responses:

Bless you and may the Lord shine His face on you, protect you and grant you peace.  (Through the Roof)

Donations arising from 'Bakari' have now been sent to Invisible Children, 

War Child and 

Child Soldiers International, who commented 'as a small charity, your donation is truly encouraging and your support helps our work to end the recruitment and use of child soldiers'.

September 2018
My most recently published collection of poems has definitely had the longest incubation period.  I am pleased that 'Grace - a gift of God' is finally in print, and I hope it will benefit those supporting others in special need of God's grace at different stages in life.

 I am pleased that Bakari the soldier boy has been published and hope that funds raised from sales will  help 3 specific charities who campaign to end the practice of child soldiers and support individuals and families whose lives have been affected.

November 2017
After a longer hiatus than intended I hope to publish a  second children's book in the new year, to highlight the plight of child soldiers. For more information on this subject you may find this blog helpful that I prepared for Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART UK).

January 2015
The start of another year with its challenges and uncertainties. As world events point to increasing societal breakdown, extremism and lawlessness, it is good to know the one true and living God is unchanging and faithful. As we look towards His coming Kingdom may we fruitfully labourer in His harvest.

October 2014
A busy few months have passed with preparations for moving home after two decades in Scotland. It has been good to be reminded again of God's faithfulness in all things. I am glad that 'Dori the Donkey of Destiny' has blessed those who have read it and the work of  children's charities: 
Your gift enables us in our plan to complete our second residential home for older orphans in western Ukraine, and .....our desire to install a hoist in the hydrotherapy pool.   (Martin Wilcox, on behalf of Child Aid to Russia & the Republics)
