To honour our friend Jo Grant, 42, daughter, wife, mother and director of Aquila Way's homes for abused women who slipped away from this life in peace last Monday, this from Henri Nouwen:

Dying is a gradual diminishing and final vanishing over the horizon of life. When we watch a sailboat leaving port and moving towards the horizon, it becomes smaller and smaller until we can no longer see it. But we must trust that someone is standing on a faraway shore seeing that same sailboat become larger and larger until it reaches its new harbour. Death is a painful loss. When we return to our homes after a burial, our hearts are in grief. But when we think about the One standing at the other shore eagerly waiting to welcome our beloved friend into a new home, a smile can break through our tears.

DCI has never been a fund-raising organisation nor do we make appeals, send out magazines or ask for offerings, rather we are a gathering point for people who feel called to giving for the benefit of the last, the lost and the least of the world. As Pastor Oswald Smith famously said in the 1930's, "If you can't go yourself, then for God's sake, send someone else."


Les Norman 60, is a journalist, writer and a fund manager for the DCI Fund, focussing on the lost, the last and the least of the world. Since 1977 he has been following the call of Christ. He is married to Pilar with three grown up children.
