'Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
'I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.'                 John 15,vs 4-5

Poem by Sue Martin

Zanzibar

As it closes the day, the sun, 
eclipsed by the dhow, 
majestically sinks below shimmering 
ocean, 
flooding heavens with burnt orange, 
deep into the night sky. 
The ethereal Glory of God 
bursting through nature’s art. 
The light of life, separating 
day and night, light from darkness, 
Incomparable splendour. 
The dhow cuts the water, 
trade winds filling shadowed sail. 
In history, spices above, human misery 
below: 
Cargo stolen, shackled and sold, 
Incomprehensible cruelty. 
Hands, which once brutally maimed, 
rise now in worship, Jesus triumphant. 
Mankind transformed, equal at the cross. 
Neither Jew nor Gentile, 
Slave nor free. 

Sue. February 2014 

Today, on the site of the old slave 
market, stands Zanzibar Cathedral! 

Rob and Sue have been based in Marsabit, Northern Kenya, since 2008, where Rob is Bishop of the newly inaugurated Diocese of Marsabit. The region is remote, desert-like, prone to droughts and frequent tribal clashes.

Crosslinks Mission Partners from 1978 until 1987, Rob was Diocesan Accountant for the huge Diocese of Mt. Kenya East (which included the present Diocese of Marsabit), and Sue was a nurse, teaching first aid and offering hospitality.

From 1988 until 1991 Rob trained for ordination and served in Bristol, then as Vicar of Holy Trinity, Frome, from 1995 until 2008.

They have three sons, Andrew (m. Amanda, daughter Abigail), Thomas, and Simon (m. Hannah, son Bear).
