We spent our Easter, down in Perth, at a Family Camp, hosted by Growing Families Australia. The first few days were lovely Perth weather – blue skies, sunny weather. Then it got cold! We sure did feel the cold. Started to really look forward to being home again.
But the camp was more than about the weather. We got to meet some people from Zimbabwe – they were our neighbours in the dorms. Getting to know them was a God appointments. The weekend was full of catching up with people – old friends and new. It was a great time to put faces to names of people we have known of for many years.
We enjoyed the teachng sessions though my brain seemed to clock out occassionally so I am glad we were able to get the tapes and listen to them in my own time. One special session for me was to spend some time with a lady who has a passion to educate people on issues of purity. She has both sourced some great material and is starting to write her own. I can’t wait for her to get her website up and going so I can support her that way.
I got to catch up with my oldest friend – though we assure each other that doesn’t make us old. I grew up with her – so have been friends for over 30 years. A friend for more than 30 years – isn’t that amazing.
Saying goodbye was a bit sad – especially to our Zim. neighbours. We are heading home now (I type this at the airport) and are not feeling particularly refreshed though plenty enthused about whatever lays ahead for our next year.
