I enjoyed my job as a police officer and didn't want to leave. I applied for many other jobs praying that God would lead me but didn't get anywhere. I didn't want to leave the UK or rely on others for financial support so long-term mission work wasn't an option although I had been involved in local evangelism and short term missions. Gradually God showed me that my attitude was wrong. The door opened for me to join the Logos Hope Missionary Ship in 2011, all other doors closed. In 2012 the ship visited the Philippines and ended up staying there for a very long time due to mechanical problems. I went on shore and met and began to befriend the street teens abusing solvents. I sensed at this stage that God wanted me to return after my ship commitment as I had developed a heart for the country and people. I went back in December 2013...(less)

Are we Maintaining an Eternal Perspective?

“Our biggest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding in things that in the light of eternity don’t really matter.” (D. L. Moody)
The sharp eyed amongst you will notice that I’ve started and finished with the same quote and poem as last time. Sorry if that bores anyone, although it really shouldn’t in light of the content. I’ve been challenged recently by both. Interestingly, the poem wa... Read more of this blog post »

“The more things we accumulate, the more cluttered our lives become, and the more stressed we feel as we are compelled to think about them. Life is about people not about things.”
Natalie Vellacott

“If I firmly believed, as millions say they do, that the knowledge of a practice of religion in this life influences destiny in another, then religion would mean to me everything. I would cast away earthly enjoyments as dross, earthly thoughts and feelings as vanity. Religion would be my first waking thought and my last image before sleep sank me into unconsciousness. I should labor in its cause alone. I would take thought for the marrow of eternity alone. I would esteem one soul gained for heaven worth a life of suffering. Earthly consequences would never stay in my head or seal my lips. Earth, its joys and its griefs, would occupy no moment of my thoughts. I would strive to look upon eternity alone, and on the immortal souls around me, soon to be everlastingly happy or everlastingly miserable. I would go forth to the world and preach to it in season and out of season. and my text would be, "What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul”
Norman Grubb

“He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
Jim Elliot

“Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.”
C.T. Studd

“I am only one, but still I am one.I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”
Helen Keller

If you have your original Word doc, just do a search for God/Jesus/Christ etc and then check that they aren't used as curse words in the context....There were at least a handful...Let me know once you've done it and I'll amend my review for you!

Hi Natalie,

Hi Angela, I did enjoy your book. I'm a little surprised that you weren't aware of the blasphemy--you write as if it was a surprise to you or as if the characters themselves decided what to write! Please don't blame your decision to include blasphemy on the characters that you created ....You could always remove it if you are really disappointed by it...I would happily amend my review if you choose to do so....Blessings


Angela Joseph Hi Natalie,
Thanks for your thorough review of my book Coming Out of Egypt. I do appreciate your honest opinion, but I am disappointed that you found some blasphemy. I don't recall any, but if there is, I can only accredit it to either a character's ignorance about God or his/her anger at God.
